    Alli [from ANR Music Academy] has been my voice coach for the last 4 years. I first started voice lessons with Ali to develop my voice for musical theater due to her background in performance arts. I have worked with many voice coaches and instructors, ranging from classically trained opera singers to contemporary recording artists. I found that her instruction was by far the best. I rely on her to prepare for auditions and performances. She has helped me not only prepare for the auditions musically, but also with movement on stage....She has helped me to understand what goes on inside my body when I sing, and how I can effectively utilize all physical aspects to reach the best possible sound. In all of the time I trained with her, she has helped me prepare for countless auditions and performances, and I do not know where I would be today without her.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Typically, I will always ask a new student about their background in music, if any, and what their goals are for their playing or singing. I ask them for some musical inspirations to understand  what type of music they identify with and would like to play. If needed, I will assess their current playing/performance level and begin to pull resources that I would use for their lessons. It's at this point that I start to ease them into the routine of what our lessons will look like, strategies to achieve our goals and exercises to practice our new knowledge.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Yes. 35.00/ half hour lesson ( New Student Rate)

75.00/ hour lesson (New Student Rate)

What types of students have you worked with?

I work best with ages 8-16 , however I have had students as young as 4 and as old as 60.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Our last autumn recital was a beautiful experience. All of the performers were so excited to show their new skills and it was such a moment of pride for me. I was able to remember the students who  knew nothing about playing or singing and to see them blow the crowd away was very rewarding.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

My biggest advice is to make sure you are working with someone who respects your goals, understands how to communicate technique and theory in more than one way, and gives you a hands on approach to cirriculum.
