Testimonials

Ayanna is the best. My daughter has taken voice lessons from her since age 12 and absolutely loves her. (Others teachers have not worked out for us for various reasons.) Ayanna has a beautiful voice, and it is a joy to listen to them singing together. She is very flexible about working with the music that her student prefers and giving advice about how to improve in addition to working in vocal exercises. My daughter plays guitar, ukelele, and piano, and Ayanna is wonderful about helping her with playing her instruments along with her singing. We highly recommend her as the best music teacher ever!!!!
