I had a great first lesson today. Shannon was able to point out many things I need to improve on and provided appropriate suggestions and exercises. I am looking forward to the next lesson.
Shannon is an incredible professional and I couldn't be happier with the lessons I've taken with her. She did a wonderful job in every way.
She is fantastic. Down to earth- amiable- gives excellent instruction and is willing to help you become the best, healthiest singer possible. I can't wait for more lessons.
I really liked her approach and excercises . I never knew I could make my voice have such a nice sound. I can't wait till my next lesson.
Without reservation, I give Shannon my highest rating as a singing teacher/coach. As an amateur who hadn't sung in decades, I wanted to see if it were possible to recapture the joy and ease I had with singing in my youth. Shannon's experience both with singing and with teacher were immediately evident. She has proven to be the perfect combination of enthusiastic, passionate, encouraging, and motivating. I am enjoying myself tremendously.+ Read More
Just completed my 1st lesson, not knowing what to expect. I thought Shannon did a great job and is getting me off to a good start. I look forward to continued progress.
So far am very satisfied with my teacher choice.Love the way Mrs. Shannon teaches.
Shannon is the best of both worlds when it comes to fun yet serious! I have had only one lesson so far which has already proved to be most helpful, and I will definitely continue!
Ms. French was the best teacher ever. She has so much experience and is kind and friendly. She helped me improve my range and gave me confidence.
I know Shannon F. from when she lived in North Carolina. She is a terrific singer
