Roberta is amazing! I went to her for a little more than 3 years for voice (and piano for a little bit) and she is very helpful, skilled, friendly, knowledgable, and fun. She helped me get into my top choice college as a choral music major with a full tuition scholarship and supported me the entire way. Roberta knows how to work with any voice with any level of experience of any age. Not only is Robera a fantastic teacher; she is also very understanding and a great person to talk to. I would highly recommend her to any student in the area.

Roberta has helped my son improve his vocal skills tremendously. I truly believe he was selected to be in the Southern Regional Choir the past few years as a direct result of his work with Roberta. She is extremely talented and knowledgeable and commands respect from her students.
