"I have been a student of Anne's since 2005. I love the personal one-on-one attention I receive. Anne is effective at communicating the technical details of singing. When I leave a voice lesson, my voice and body feel completely refreshed. Anne truly cares about her students. Since being a student of Anne's, I have booked work for Disney, NBC, regional theatre, and most recently, I was an American Idol Season 8 contestant and booked an episode on 'Hannah Montana'."

"Anne has been my vocal teacher since I was four years old. She has taught me how to warm up effectively so that my voice is protected when I sing and it helps me to reach the notes I want to hit. Anne is also really fun to learn from."

"I auditioned several voice teachers before finding Anne and it was an instant fit. She has an incredible knack for being able to make me reach down inside, 'feel' my voice... A year ago I had pretty much lost confidence in my voice. After working with Anne this past year I have not only regained the confidence but also, with her help and encouragement, recorded a CD - something I would never have believed I could do! Anne sees the individual, not just the student, she listens, she encourages, she truly cares that you suceed. An hour's lesson with her leaves me smiling and singing all the way home!"
