    About Anna

    Overview

    I have played piano for 20 years and sang almost as long. I had professional voice lessons from Daniela Opravialova, retired opera singer, for 6 years and have performed on local stages in several leading roles. I am a proficient sight reader who participated in All State Chorus for 6 years and was awarded the music departmental plaque for the class of 2004. I have a focus on opera, musical theater, folk, and intermediate piano.

    *** Lesson Details ***
    I am a fairly laid back instructor who will focus on your improvements and showcase your talents through performances. I will use a variety of curriculum varying from theory (to teach you how to read your music) to vocal techniques and performance pieces. In a few months I will have your vocal range strengthened and you will play piano with more confidence. I will start with your lowest ability and work up to more difficult pieces whether in piano, voice, or both.

    *** Specialties ***
    I studied music with a focus on opera and musical theater but am also fond of folk and pop.

    Hi there Ms. Anna, I am hoping to have you as a teacher for singing lessons, but I have one request. My dad doesn't want to pay using his credit card, so is there any way we can pay using checks or cash? I would really like for you to be my singing instructor. Please email me at lanbui0430@gmail.com as soon as you make up your mind, thank you very much! Hopefully you read this review, as I didn't know any other way to reach you.

    I had my first lesson singing lesson ever as well as my first lesson with Ms. Anna yesterday. Ms. Anna is a great instructor who makes her students feel comfortable to learn, make mistakes and grow without any pressure to be perfect. She listens to what her students want from their experience and sets goals to better help you achieve them. Overall Ms.Anna is a great instructor who I would recommend to anyone wishing to learn or better themselves as a singer.

    Wonderful voice teacher for my daughter

    Anna has a beautiful voice and works with my daughter on the music she wants to sing, but also encourages her work with many other different types of music as well to broaden her experience. My daughter's voice has gotten stronger, her range has increased and she has become much more confident since she has been working with Anna. She looks forward to her voice lessons every week.
