Teaching & Coaching 



Janet brings both excellent craft and a rich understanding of Musical Theatre Interpretation to each of her lessons. She is a rare teacher in that she listens to each student’s need and is able to translate her experience and guidance into simple, clear cut language that is immediately useful.
I am Director of Musical Theatre at the Stella Adler Studio, & I am happy always happy when Janet is able to join our faculty.

Private Voice Lessons


Every student is unique and requires a lesson customized to their specific needs.  In working with professional and recreational singers, I have found that tailoring a lesson to the individual’s skill always benefits the student best.  Serious students will be supported in their professional development, while the casual student grows in an appreciation for singing that will enrich their lives.  

In the Private Lesson we build on Vocal Technique, Vocal Styling, Performance and Vocal Health.  

 

  •  Vocal Technique

Posture, Proper Support, Breathing, Vocal Range (high and low), Vocal Placement, Register Blending, Control of Vibrato & Resonance, Easing into High and Low Notes, Power, Vocal Beauty, Belting, Blending and Accent Reduction.

 

  • Vocal Styles

Precision and Authenticity in Musical Theatre, Jazz, Pop, Rock,  R&B, Country and Classical.

 

  •  Performance

Repertoire, Gesture, Choreography, Anxiety Reduction, Charisma Enhancement, Lyric Interpretation, Audition Preparation, Mic Technique for Live Stage Work, Studio vs Live Performance

Have worked with Janet on Broadway as well as other projects. Quite insightful and intuitive actor. She’d be a great Instructor/Teacher/guide to students seeking their way toward their careers in Acting/Theatre/Performing. They’d be lucky to have her expertise and guidance.

Ms. Janet Dacal has been a wonderful mentor and instructor to all of my Musical Theater students at MAD Dance Inc. Her love for children of all ages is beautiful to see. She conducts all of her classes either, Audition Prep, Vocal Technique, Acting Technique or Broadway Singing in a professional and fun manner. It is evident that she truly cares for each student.


All of my students have learned tremendously with Ms. Dacal and they continue to thrive under her direction. I have known Janet for almost 10 years now and to this day she continues to inspire me as well. Her patience, dedication and teaching techniques have helped my students be the best that they could be. They all long to continue on this Broadway journey and I know, without a doubt, they will reach their dream with Janet.

Janet is not only beautiful and accomplished, but is intelligent, knowledgeable and a great instructor. Every student enjoyed and looked forward to each day of the class and missed her terribly when the class was over

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and working with Janet for 5 years now. She is definitely world class talent. Not only is she a very talented and awesome performer but educator as well. She can not only “do” but teach and communicate it effectively.
