Nanette Sonneman has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music and Theater and a Masters of Music degree in Piano Pedagogy. Nanette Sonneman sings in a variety of styles, spanning from the forever-timeless 40`s to jazz ballads of today, musical theatre and light opera. On the piano, she plays vibrant and beautiful melodies.
Nanette offers music lessons for aspiring artists of all kinds. Piano lessons give you the opportunity to learn everything that goes into properly playing a piano. From the keys, to the pedals, to the tempo, you will learn how to bring together these sounds to create beautiful music. Students will learn the Classical Dorothy Taubmann Piano Technique; a form based on healthy movements, preventing repetitive motion injury. Sonneman Studio Piano, Voice and Drama’s piano lessons make heavy use of performance-based theory.
Nanette also offers voice lessons, so you can sing with a voice you can be proud of. Here, students will learn Bel Canto vocal training, which has applications for musical theater, jazz ballads, opera, and gospel. Both singing and piano lessons are offered to students aged 4 to adult, and classes run from half an hour to a full hour.
Nanette’s performing art expertise does not end at music, however. Students at Sonneman Studio Piano, Voice and Drama can also take advantage of drama lessons, in order to act on stage with ease.
Nanette has over 25 years of experience teaching and performing. Her goal is to glorify God in all that she does, while helping others to reach their potential. Nanette and her advanced students, with their musical expertise, are available for church services, weddings, and other private events.
Presently, Nanette Sonneman enjoys singing solos at her church in Grosse Pointe Woods, where she has another teaching studio location. She has a passion to not only entertain, but to lift up her audience and students with music and drama which inspire. In an imperfect world, we need hope, encouragement, and joy to share with others.
Learning piano, voice, or drama can build self-esteem and be a vehicle to make a difference in the world. Nanette studied piano from a young age, through college, and always sang in church and school. Her professional start was in the international Christian drama company Covenant Players, performing in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. She loves to share her talents and training, bringing joy and accomplishment to others.
Nanette's pianos students learn the classics (Bach, Mozart, Chopin) through contemporary music, and her voice students may study music theater, light opera, popular or jazz ballads of the past or present. The drama training enables any performer to reach out to an audience in a moving, communicative way. Please visit www.sonnemanstudio.com
