WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"As a veteran broadcaster and artist, I am constantly seeking to evolve and be mindful of the need for another voice in one's ear. I came to Ann looking for help with my broadcast voice in speech and to explore the possibility of finding my singing voice. With Ann’s guidance I have exercised my voice in new ways and been inspired to challenge myself. Being in tune with the voice and embracing the rhythm of music is poetic and expands one’s horizons in a way that is holistically fulfilling. With Ann’s support and encouragement, I’m curious to explore further to see where this journey might take me."
