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!

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!

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.
