JoAnn R.

Carmichael, CA

About JoAnn

Your lessons are designed to help you develop the skills and confidence you need to successfully perform in public. I work hard to prepare your lessons and I ask my students to invest daily time working on skills studied at their lessons. Performing music requires the patient integration of multiple skills over time, however, the rewards are BIG. I continually update my teaching methods by attending workshops and master classes and I incorporate my knowledge of human anatomy and function, to help you perform with minimal strain. Also, I incorporate internet resources in your lessons to keep them interesting and up to date. What will your lessons be like? At your first lesson we will explore and name the parts of your instrument (voice or cello). We'll talk about what you ...

I am a brand new singing student, although, at 59, I am not brand new. After my first three lessons I am completely satisfied that I chose the right instructor. JoAnn is warm and friendly and makes me feel welcome and comfortable. It is clear she has a deep knowledge and love of music and singing, has a lot to offer her students, and enjoys the teaching interaction. I am thoroughly enjoying the experience and look forward to every lesson. Although my development is in the very early stages, I'm already noticing progress and certainly a more educated awareness of my voice.

Great Voice Teacher!

I really enjoy my voice lessons with JoAnn. She is a great teacher! I've been taking voice lessons with JoAnn for a few years now and am so happy with how I sound and feel while singing. I started out as a complete beginner with quite a bit of tension in my body and have progressed along nicely these past few years.

JoAnn is extremely knowledgeable about music and really enjoys sharing that knowledge with her students. She is passionate about music and teaching. JoAnn is patient and really makes an effort communicate effectively with her students. I’ve always appreciate her enthusiasm and the effort she puts into planning my lessons.

JoAnn also has a lovely music studio. It is comfortable, private, light, and airy with a nice view of her backyard. Her music studio is quiet and I never have trouble hearing her, myself, or the keyboard.

Great teacher!

Jo Ann is a wonderful teacher. She is very knowledgeable, patient, responsive to the needs of the students, and provides excellent explanations. I started taking lessons with her as a complete beginner and, with her help, learn to understand the features of my voice and the mechanics of voice production. Also, it is very fun to work with her!

Katherine was a wonderful instructor for my 7 year old little girl. She is very patient and understanding. I appreciate how positive she is and the uplifting encouragement she provided my daughter. Once school starts back in the fall, we hope to see Katherine again for more lessons. I can't say enough about how great she is and I'm so glad we chose her.

I really enjoyed taking lessons from Kat. She's a fun teacher who knows her stuff. She explained to me the mechanics of singing in a way that I could easily understand. She was great at pinpointing the exact areas that I needed to work on and gave me specific directions to enhance my abilities. She made me feel very comfortable and helped me get over my fear of singing in front of others. I look forward to more lessons with Kat in the future.

PERFECT MATCH FOR MY 5 y/o!!!

Kat works very well with little ones. She was very relaxed from the very first visit which definitely made it even easier on my 5 y/o daughter. During our last lesson my daughter had the case of the "sillies". Kat's tone remained the same & never once showed any signs of frustration. She was and is absolutely wonderful with her! Kat has an amazing voice & my daughter cant stop talking about her & cant wait for her lessons. We definitely made the perfect choice!
