I was born and raised in Yucaipa, CA and have a Bachelor of Music in vocal performance from the University of Redlands. I am currrntly working towards my MFA in acting at UCLA. I have been performing for 15 years. Some of my favorite roles include Penny (Hairspray), Tessie Tura (Gypsy), The Baker's Wife (Into the Woods), Joy (Rogers and Hammerstein's Cinderella), Jenny (Company), Joanne (RENT), Jan (Grease), Milly (Seven Brides for Seven Brothers), Abigail Adams (1776), and Despina (Cosi Fan Tutte). I was artistic director for the University of Redlands Musical Theatre Company for two years and sang for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Arts Festival. I am also an alumni of The American Theatre Wing's SpringboardNYC program. I recently soloed with the California Philharmonic at Walt Disney Concert Hall.

As a teacher, I am very positive and patient. I focus 50% of my lessons on physical and vocal warm-ups and 50% on the student's chosen repertoire. I believe in working towards a goal, so I always push my students to perform. I keep a calendar of auditions that I encourage students to

Annalise has a very impressive background in music and education, and it really reflects through her lessons with my daughter. She has instilled a lot of confidence in my daughter, to the point that she tried out for, and made, Advanced Choir at her school. I very highly recommend Annalise!

Annalise is an excellent vocalist, and she passes her wealth of talent on to her students. A+, cannot recommend highly enough.

Talented Teacher

Annalise is a wonderful teacher with a strong passion to spread her knowledge of music to others. I've had the pleasure of working with her in operas and musicals and can honestly say that she is incredibly talented and has a wonderful gift. She is patient and knows how to make lessons a fun learning experience. A true treasure!

She's a great teacher!

I've been taking singing lessons from Annalise for a while. There is no denying that my singing has improved since I started! Not only that, she also convinced me to audition (and eventually perform) in a musical (something I never thought I would have the courage to do)! She's a kind, energetic, fun, and encouraging voice teacher! You won't regret a lesson with her! :)

Wonderful & Patient

I have been taking singing lessons with Annalise for a while now I can say without a shadow of a doubt that she is fantastic. Not only do I sound better but I feel more confident. I am taking lessons for a specific audition, but she doesn't just focus on the songs I'm trying to learn but on the fundamentals helping me to build a stronger foundation. I highly recommend Annalise for any of your singing needs!
