About Shanita J.

I began singing at very young age and have never stopped : ) I began teaching music and voice while in college and have been doing so ever since! I'm classically-trained in voice and have a versatile sound and style. I help my students to find their voice and bring it out to the people who are waiting to hear it! We always have fun through learning. I incorporate the basic fundamentals of music theory into my classes as well. I believe it's important and fun!

And did I mention Artist Development!!!! Yes, after about the 6th lesson you'll be ready for live performances with a newly improved way of approaching the song in you : )

From the fundamentals of scales to articulating words to performing, she’s very helpful in different aspects of singing. In each lesson, she keeps a supportive and cheerful mood. At the end of the day, it’s clear that she wants you to improve to the best of your ability.

Shanita is an excellent vocalist. She takes time to ensure you’re both understanding and singing the right notes. She’s also a very kind person. You definitely feel you got more than what you paid for at the end of each lesson.

Encouraging & supportive! She's the best instructor, even touching on music theory and performance. Taking singing lessons as an adult was daunting but she's really patient and easy to work with.

My experience with Shanita was excellent. She is very professional and patient. I have been singing for years and still have some issues with effective breathing. She was not condescending, and though knowledge is vast, she as able to show me techniques in ways I could understand.
