Anne is a teacher who inspires her students to learn, and develop their unique instrument. She is kind, caring, and makes you feel comfortable with your voice. Anne has taught me how to use an area of my voice, specifically my upper register. I now approach these higher notes with ease. Her knowledge and teaching style is key to my comfort. I highly recommend Anne to anyone wanting to improve their range, flexibility, and overall quality of sound. As a professional photographer, I understand the importance of making a client comfortable. Anne does this. I am singing again, and I actually gig once and a while, and I am not talking about photography; I sing. :)

"I have trained with Anne for 14 years now and I have never looked back. Anne has taught me valuable technical skills as well as the importance of vocal health. Training with Anne has prepared me for a career in musical theatre, with skills I will continue to use for the rest of my life. Over the previous year Anne has dedicated many hours in preparing me for college auditions. With her help, I was granted acceptance to Rider University’s prestigious Musical Theatre BFA program where I will be joining a class of 20 performers chosen out of a pool of over 700 applicants. As a professor teaching vocal classes at AMDA, LA and Long Beach City College, Anne offers great expertise in preparation for college auditions, and her dedication made the extensive audition process much easier. The on-site recording studio was very convenient when recording auditions. Anne and Tom were extremely professional, and provided me with a superb recording to submit."

Working with Anne and Tom was a professional and seamless experience. Our session was productive, and I felt as though it was a priority of both of them that we get the best possible version of the songs we recorded, even if it meant re-taping sections of the piece. When I heard the final recording, I felt as though my music was brought to life in a way it never had been before.
