Anne-Marie was wonderful! Encouraging. Caring. But most importantly, informative. I've been singing all my life; as a toddler, annoying my brothers and sisters, to school choirs and shows, and even went on to study musical theatre in college. The only time I had a voice teacher was in college, seven year ago, and I had not been confident with the quality of my voice then, and knew I was out of practice now. But all things considered, with just 8 short weeks with Anne, I learned more then I had in my whole singing career.
I am a very hands-on learner, terminology is not a strong suit of mine, and Anne-Marie used different visuals in order to get me to produce the right results. It was challenging, my body was not used to what she was asking, and it fought. Bad habits die hard, but hard work pays off, and the sound that came from my body on our last lesson literally had me in a state of shock. She brought back something I thought I lost, and gave me something I never thought I had.
On the way home, the radio played. “Don't give up, you've got the music in you...”, and it may sound cheesy, (I'm a theatre major, what d'ya expect?), but I smiled and knew this was just the beginning. I will continue to work with Anne-Marie, and HIGHLY recommend her for anyone looking to stretch themselves and their dreams. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned singer, she will make you great, because -she- is great.
