My name is Anna A/ and I would love to be your new voice teacher! I am a professional singer, songwriter, and recording artist here in Nashville.
I started studying the voice when I was 11 years old. This included taking private voice lessons (classical primarily) and participating in several musical theater shows, a middle school jazz choir, and was a member of the Boston Children’s Choir. Through high school and part of college, I participated in musicals, co-lead a girl’s a capella group, performed in a show choir, and was selected for the All States choir in Massachusetts in 2010. On college breaks, I also volunteered as a teaching assistant (TA) for my former middle school jazz choir. In May 2015, I graduated from Belmont University with a Bachelor of Music, specifically in Commercial Voice. Through my music studies, I have taken several music theory classes, which have contributed to my ability to analyze music in a technical way. Until now, I have accumulated over 10 years of voice lessons for myself, ranging from classical/opera studies to commercial styles.
Since moving to Nashville in 2012, I have worked consistently as a freelance musician, as well on and off as a teacher. While in college, I started and managed my own swing band, specializing in 30’s-40’s jazz. In our time, we were a part of several radio shows (including Music City Roots), opened for large acts, recorded EP’s and records, and organized tours in the greater Midwest area. Post-college and disbanding, I have had many performance-based professional singing opportunities. For the past two years, I have served as the lead singer for the Grand Hotel Orchestra on Mackinac Island, MI. There, I was contracted for two 2.5 month stays during which I performed a variety of jazz and pop classics 7 nights a week. In Nashville, I have successfully gathered my own jazz band. I am a regular performer at Rudy’s Jazz Room in the heart of Nashville. I am capable of leading my own groups and all of the organizing that entails – creating charts/books, calling players, leading rehearsals.
I currently work part-time at a non-profit music school. There, I have private voice students, as well as two classes teaching composition and music theory.

Teaches Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Anna is a wonderful teacher! This is my first experience taking singing lessons, and she has been so patient with me, and I have already learned so much in just two lessons. She is very knowledgeable about the voice and gives clear, easy-to-follow instruction. I'm looking forward to continuing learning from her!Show More
