Tony is spectacular! She empowers me each time we work together!

Toni has been one of the most important people in my life. She taught me not only how to sing, but also how to perform and be a real musician. She makes the lessons incredibly fun and helpful. I wouldn't be the musician I am today without her.
Judith
I've had a few singing teachers before and let me just say it was always mediocre. It was all fundamentals and straight to techniques. With toni it was so much fun and very simple. She makes sure that I don't feel like I'm being tested or points out my flaws but rather my strength which makes me feel even more motivated to sing. She's an amazing instructor I recommend her to anyone who wants to have fun learning rather than feeling like they're in a class. She's passionate, kind and she is an amazing teacher. Take her

Please disregard my earlier review. I was in Mama Bear mode and after having discussed the matter with Aubrey, I retract my statements. The only suggestion I might make is that she check in with the students about how they felt about their class today? I know time is limited and this would be easy to do in a perfect world. I truly appreciate the way she reached out to me and my child to explain the misunderstanding after the fact.
Hunter
You kept my child muted almost through the whole class, even while he was singing and you paid little to no attention to him at all. He was excited to learn dynamics as a singer and you CRUSHED him. I used to teach private violin and I would never have acted so unprofessionally. You practically made him cry. This hurt us both.
Fiona
Aubrey is an absolute gem — kind, professional, intelligent, funny, focused, and fiercely dedicated to her craft. Highly recommend!!

Monica is the best!! She was so kind and helpful, she wasn’t hesitant on giving back helpful feedback. Her communication was amazing!! She sent several videos on how to improve jumps and extra tips for cheerleading. She has a very positive attitude and high energy which makes lessons 10x better and fun. We both saw major improvements just 5-10 minutes in. Highly recommend, you will not be disappointed!
