I grew up in a musical home with a piano teacher for a mom. Consequently, I started learning piano and singing at a young age, and then began taking voice lessons in high school. For the last 19 years I have been studying voice and loving every minute of it! I am a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing and Music Teacher's Association of California. I have a bachelor's degree in music education from Bob Jones University, and a master's degree in Vocal Performance from Azusa Pacific University. I also studied for 2 summers during college with a master teacher. Over the years I have performed and worked with both children's choirs and adult choirs and given private concerts. My enthusiasm for music has spilled over into a love for teaching. I have taught private voice lessons for the last 8 years to students ranging in age from 5 to 50+. Some have been beginner students, and others were seasoned singers who wanted some refreshers and guidance. My forte is classical music but I have also worked with Broadway, Sacred, and Pop. I enjoy teaching beginning to intermediate piano as well.
*** Lesson Details ***
For me, the most important key to success in music is consistency in lessons and in practice. I will work hard with my students to help them find a practice schedule that fits with their current activities and will help them reach their goals as a musician. Our lesson times will include theory and technique to help them gain skills and confidence and become well-rounded musicians. We can also prepare for any upcoming solos or auditions. I love music and I want my students to gain that same enthusiasm and excitement. I am a strong believer in positive reinforcement so my students will receive lots of praise and encouragement from me. Sometimes we might work hard to reach a specific goal, but we will have fun along the way. Depending on the course of study (piano or singing) I would expect the student to buy 1- 3 music books that we would work from.

This was my daughters first formal lesson. Anna is AWESOME!!! .She is super patient and kind . She makes sure the student truly understands the different techniques. She has such a kind soul. I would highly recommend her.
Anna is super personable and present as a teacher. Her workspace is welcoming and well equipped. As an adult student, I felt like she was interested and supportive in my goals.
Even after first lesson my daughter is stronger and more confident for her performance! Thank you!
My daughter likes her.
She's not only a very nice person with a nice smile! But is very helpful on teaching me the why and the how! I find her teaching very helpful. I look forward to each lesson! Thank You for your patients!
Very kind, very patient. Easy to see why Anna is good at what she does.

Anna has been very nice since the first day we started the lessons, also patient. The lesson have been very helpful & I've learned a lot since I've started. I plan on continuing these lessons. Couldn't be any happier with the service.
Hi Miss Anna,Ruby is having a great time playing the piano! She even impressed her Grandmother when we visited her - she was able to read notes on the kid's music book that Grandma had at her house.
Anna makes learning to sing fun. Thanks for being so involved with Sophia. We enjoy getting the personal email guidance and instructions on this site. Sophia really enjoys working with you and looks forward to every class.
Thank you Ms. Anna for the time you have spent teaching Ashley piano. We believe that you have given her the tools for her to enjoy playing!
Great with young children
Anna has been great with my 4 year old. She is very patient and is great explaining the basics while keeping the lesson interesting and fun!
Having an instructor like Anna gave me hope and motivation to pursue one of the things I've always wanted to do but didn't have the time in the past..
Ms Anna is doing an exceptional job with my daughter Jaelle. She's very knowledgeable of her craft and her approach is pleasant, calm and fun. She uses fun analogies that Jaelle can easily understand. Jaelle enjoys going to lessons and is now able to recognize notes in her music book. I would strongly recommend Ms. Anna for any school aged children.+ Read More

singing our hearts out.
My daughter Teresa loves going to class ! She is a hard critic to win over but Miss Anna is engaging and loving. Her studio is very quiet and comfortable. She has a beautiful voice :) I also like how she has made the lessons and homework age appropriate.
Very, very pleased!
We couldn't be more pleased with Anna. She's been a concerned and diligent instructor and role model for our 8 year old daughter. She seems to have a very good understanding for children and their needs and capabilities. She has a pleasant demeanor and is well versed in her field. I'd recommend Anna to anyone looking for lessons for themselves, friends, or their children.
Anna was fabulous with out son, Colin. Very patient. He even learned to read notes. I highly recommend Anna for anyone.
