–Daniella Theresia Teodoro-Dier
Daniella Theresia – “Barter” (Lori Laitman)
Daniella Theresia Teodoro-Dier expressed a connection with music from a very young age – as a baby, she hummed a lullaby in her sleep after her mother sang it to her! At the age of 3, Daniella attended her first violin concert; the next day, she created her own violin out of two chopsticks and went around the house singing one of the songs from the concert. Her musical lessons soon expanded from violin to include piano, flute, viola, and classical voice.
In 2009, Daniella completed her formal training at Lawrence University (Appleton, Wisconsin, U.S.A.), receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in music with voice as her primary instrument. From Lawrence, she received a solid foundation in theory, sight singing, ear training, and music history. After receiving her degree, she continued to seek performance opportunities and operatic training in the United States, Europe, and Israel. From 2013-2016, Daniella lived in Tel Aviv, Israel, where she studied with Professor Tamar Rachum-Roth, a well-respected vocal pedagogue.
Influenced by her own multi-instrumental experience, Daniella believes that being a well-rounded musician is essential to developing a student’s skills and love of music. She helps her students explore their relationship with their instrument in a healthy and nurturing manner, letting their musical passions fuel their desire to practice and perform. Daniella is a strong advocate for creating intelligent body awareness in musicians and shares her own personal knowledge and experience from methods like Alexander Technique, the Grinberg Method, and yoga with her students.
Since 2016, Daniella has been serving the GTA as a soloist and professional ensemble member. She currently holds lead positions with the Toronto Oratory Choir at Holy Family Roman Catholic Church, the professional choir at Beth Sholom Synagogue, and the Etobicoke Centennial Choir. She lives in Oakville with her husband and fellow musician David Finneran and their cat.
Daniella looks forward to empowering musicians of all ages to grow into their best possible musical selves.
