    I play piano and could have taught my son myself, but nowhere near as well as it has turned out with Joann over the past 2 years. 1) For beginners, I love the variety of learning styles she uses. Everything from learning to read music to ear training. Scales done in a fun way, and exercises, music theory, and well-known songs. 2) As he progressed, she would identify his interests and expand on them. Like if he started playing a song for fun on the side with just the right hand, she'd say "that's great! why don't we learn to add left hand chords to it and make that part of your lesson!" She has him figure it out by ear and then write out the notes. I sit in on most of the lessons and love how patient she is with him, how she lets him ask questions, and how she softly reins him back in when he gets a little distracted. And when he gets frustrated, she is able to help him take a breath and try again. I would recommend her to anyone!

    Joann is my favorite vocal coach. She taught me how to focus on using my chest voice and relax my vocal cords. We are currently working on composing a song and spontaneous lyrics. She's awesome!

    Thanks Annie! It's a pleasure working with you!

About this pro

I tailor my lessons to fit the needs of my clients. I don't believe in one way of teaching. I also make sure that my students have an opportunity to find their own "voice" by creating their own songs. It's important that my students come away with a greater love of music or dance. Seeing my students progress. I love seeing breakthrough in my students where they are able to do something they didn't was possible to do before. I believe encouragement and instilling confidence in my students is key and does wonders in helping them reach their full potential.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      No complication. Just go to my website and you will the prices.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I try to get to know them, help them feel comfortable and safe. It's important for my students to feel comfortable sharing your goals, feelings, and needs so that I can best give them the best service. I do explain what will be entailed in each lesson and provide encouraging feedback.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      Yes definitely. I regularly take voice lesson privately and in groups with individuals or at a music school. I also take modern dance classes. I practice regularly with a pop/rock band as well.
