Success Stories Created From 1992-2014! Studio is permanently closed due to the July 26, 2014 passing of Denise Sherman in an automobile accident near Stop 11 and 31 on the south side of Indianapolis. Click here to view her obituary.

Know that she deeply loved all of her students, past and present. We wish you all the best of success and remind you to keep your cheeks high, sing through the mask, and strongly encourage you to make time to do your breathing exercises! They are fundamentals not because they are easy, but rather because they are important, just like you!
