I'm 37. I'd never written a song and had never taken a voice lesson. I had a song in my heart, a piano piece about an event that changed nearly shattered me. Within 3 lessons, we were onto something real. She taught me how to breathe, how to be mindful of my resonance, how to practice. Within 5, were there. We found it. We've continued, accelerating lessons. I'm now preparing to record.
She smiles, she encourages, she takes the nerves out of it. She takes her time but doesn't waste mine. For me, it’s been the right kind of strain, pushing me hard enough to sweat (and i mean sweat) but not so much to break me. I've been in New York for two months, and my work with Ana has been the highlight.
Looking for a good vocal teacher is a daunting task because you sometimes don’t know what you’re going to get. I fortunately came across Ana and she was definitely what I was looking for. She’s great teacher not just because she knows so much about music and your voice in general, but also because she genuinely loves to teach and is definitely very good at it. One of my favorite things about Ana is that it is very easy to get comfortable singing in front of her. Ana is amazing and I could not be happier with my progress or my teacher
Ana connected with my daughter right away. Ana was great at tailoring her teaching to match my daughter's vocal skill level. My daughter really developed as a singer while working with Ana and was just cast in her first Broadway junior production.
Ana is a phenomenal voice teacher who does a great job customizing her lessons to the needs of the student. She has helped me make amazing progress with my voice, and just as importantly has helped me gain the confidence to be able to sing since I’m a bit of a shy person. Her lessons are effective and very positive. I highly recommend Ana as a voice teacher to anyone who is interested in gaining more knowledge about vocal technique in general and becoming a better singer.
In a short period of time Ana has helped me progress as a singer. She is a coach and educator who is helping me understand the singing process. I am learning so much as well as improving my vocal skills. Also, she makes it a lot of fun and is super encouraging!
My son (4) and daughter (5) are taking private voice and piano lessons at Empire Performing arts Academy and they love it! As a parent, I appreciate that classes are engaging, very high-energy, and fun. Great variety of music lessons and great faculty, definitely to recommend.
