Overview

At a young age, I began performing in musical theater productions with the Civic Light Opera in Pittsburgh at the Benedum and Byham Theaters. Throughout high school, I continued performing in school and community theater musical productions. In college I was the lead vocalist in the jazz band, historian of the choir, and led an all female acapella group. During this time, I also discovered a love for writing original music and formed an acoustic duo called Scott and Rosanna. I graduated from college in December 2013 with an art education degree.

I began teaching private voice lessons during my senior year in college in 2012, and absolutely love the honor of empowering young, aspiring singers to be the best vocalists they can be. I focus on creating engaging, student-based lessons catered to each individual's goals. My experience teaching in a classroom setting has given me the experience and ability to understand how to scaffold lessons and track progress. Many people have a misconception that a good singing voice is either something 'you have or you don't', but I don't believe that's true! It just takes practice and an open mind!

So whether you are preparing for an audition, looking to improve your vocal technique, or searching for a fun outlet, I would love to work with you!

Rosanna is a wonderfully talented vocalist and teacher. I am the owner of From The Top Music Shop in Monongahela Pa, and we are fortunate to have her teaching here. She is very versatile, patient with her students, and a great motivator. Most importantly, she is an active professional musician with a deep love for what she does. Highly recommended!
