Hello!

Thank you for your interest in piano or voice lessons. My music instruction philosophy is based on teaching 5 important things that musicians must practice:
Singers -- articulation, breathing/phrasing, rhythm, tone and a personal connection ...

Thank you Anne. I get the most from you that one should play piano with the body in a natural state. "Nature commended should be obeyed."

I think it is incredible that you keep learning new things!

Wish you all the best in the future.

Genuinely

Returning to fundamentals as an adult learner is very difficult and challenging but, at least in my case, very necessary. Annie has been a wonderful piano and voice teacher guiding me through this process - patient and kind, tolerant of my poor practice habits, and able to help me work on all aspects of my music. I would highly recommend her to any prospective student, and hope to continue working with her well into the future.

Being very experienced with teaching to both children and adults of all backgrounds and ambitions, Anne is a very skilled and smart teacher. Her pedagogy has obviously been refined over many years and is clever and efficient yet easy-going and painless. She mixes theory and more academic learning with ear-training, relying as well on your more natural instincts, in order to equip you with the varied skills of a complete musician. She really tailors the teaching to your specific goals and level, as well. All this in a very gentle, easy and genuinely caring way. And always with a smile. Just go for it!

Anna S. Jamaica Plain, MA

About Anna

I have a passion for training cellists to a high level of musicianship. I have mentored cellists from the first lesson through professional symphony auditions. I generally start beginners and children with the Suzuki Method. While there are many wonderful facets to the method, a main principal is simple: to nurture. We nurture infants to learn how to speak, walk, love- so then why not apply the same with learning music? More information can be found on the Suzuki Association of the Americas website.

Background on my cello career:

My formation as a cellist started early; from age four on the Suzuki Method. As a Colorado adolescent, I was a finalist for the Young Musician's Foundation and recorded several Colorado Public Radio broadcasts with the Colorado Young Chamber Players. ...
