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 to the music.
Pianists -- technique, tone, rhythm, mechanics, and expression

I am a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing and received my conservatory degree and additional training in New York City. I can prepare you to audition, perform and have fun performing better at school, at home and at gigs.

With my training I'm receiving in my graduate studies at BU, I am able to help singers improve the health and longevity of their voice. I can also work with singers who have challenges due to respiratory difficulties, such as asthma, singers who seek accent reduction, singers who stutter, or those with a speech impediment.

Music is for all, and I look forward to sharing music with you.

Let's get started!
Ms. Annie

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.

Go for it!

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!

Anne cares about her students

Anne is an awesome vocal instructor. She focused on exactly what I needed to work on and helped me stay focused every time I sang. My friends have noticed a significant improvement in my singing in such a short time thanks to Anne's instruction. Thank you Anne!

Superb Teacher!

I took piano lessons as a child " two years with a Julliard teacher and a few years with another teacher who didn't meet my needs. After 20 years of not playing a note I got a new piano and realized I needed a professional teacher. As a result of my experience with my second childhood teacher, I was very careful in choosing a teacher as an adult. Anne is as good as my Julliard teacher was, and is the perfect instructor for me. Pieces I tossed aside six or nine months ago as "too difficult", I'm now playing.Anne " Thank you for all your wonderful instruction and help! - Marion M

Inspiring and Practical

Anne is a thoroughly professional teacher with a very practical down-to-earth style. She tailored her rigorous, well thought-out teaching approach to my specific needs. I was preparing for a chorus part in an opera and I can't tell you how much I benefitted from my lessons with Anne. She listened to my particular needs, recognized the areas I most needed help with, and then provided specific exercises to practice, offered hints to learn and sing difficult phrases, and inspired me to do well. I very highly recommend Anne.

great teacher

She is teaching me everything that i have lost over the years of not training especially when it comes to breathing while I sing and being able to take less breathes per phrase.

Awesome Teacher

Anne is a great teacher! She has vast knowledge of music and knows how to teach it well. I took music lessons when I was a child, and can honestly say that I wasn't taught properly. Love for music alone isn't enough. With Anne, I'm finally learning how to read music!! She's very enthusiastic about what she does and loves to work on any project you present to her. I have a son who's 3 1/2 years old and he already loves to read my music book, sing along with me and do the breathing exercises Anne has taught me. I'll definitely be bringing him to Anne very soon!! I highly recommend Anne as a music teacher who can bring out the love of music in anyone!!!

Wonderful Teacher!

Anne is a great teacher for my 10 year-old daughter's voice lesson. My husband is picky about selecting teacher for our daughter and he is very happy about how Anne teaches her on the first day. Anne is very patient and helpful. My daughter really likes her very much and is looking forward to meeting Anne every week. Thanks Anne.
