Mrs. Cunningham Makes Music Come Alive

Mrs. Cunningham is such a great teacher! She teaches not only how to sing and different things one should do when singing, but she helps her students get out into the world and perform for others. She has helped me increase my skill for three years, and she is the best teacher I really could ask for. She makes theory make sense and she picks the most challenging and teachable songs for her students. If you need a voice teacher that cares, please pick Mrs. Cunningham. She's funny and bubbly and loves to inspire children and push them to do their best. The passion she teaches with flows through the songs she gives to her students. She has found a way to teach passion, love, and emotional connection through music. Please, please, please choose Mrs. Cunningham as your future arts teacher! As a student, I couldn't ask for a more honest teacher. She is, and has been for years, a great role model for me. I have a lot of respect for her.

Mrs. Cunningham is the BEST!

As a parent is was critical to find the best... Not only is Mrs. Cunningham hands down the best at what she does but she connects with the kids. This is critical in building their confidence and love for music. She has taught my daughter more than singing but instilled the value of hard work pays off. She is also very honest with the parents and students. This is important as parent you want to know the good and bad. When my daughter received her first criticism she didn't break down or loose interest but rather she pushed her self harder to do better! The most important thing you must know about Mrs. Cunningham is she leads by example!!!!
