Tonna has a terrific mix of energy and technical prowess. She can diagnose your vocal issues and teach you how to work so that those issues go away and you end up singing high C's effortlessly. I would recommend Tonna to anyone who dreams of having a beautiful voice in any genre - she can get you there!
