"I have always had such positive experiences when coaching with Anna. She creates a safe space for play, creativity and conversation. I always come away from our sessions with a deeper understanding of my piece. Immaculate vibes, 10/10 recommend."
- Midori Marsh, soprano
"In our first hour of work, Anna instantly provided a space for me to perform, to practice and then to play! Her advice was encouraging and imaginative, and I always left our sessions hungry to discover more. I would recommend her to any performer prepping for an audition, a concert or just wanting to come out of their shell. 100% confidence boost."
- Sacha Smith, soprano
"Anna is an incredibly insightful and patient acting coach. I have had the opportunity to work on both operatic arias and monologues with her and in both situations I leave with a much more confident grasp of who I am, what I am doing and how to organically move through my character’s thoughts and acting beats...I had to prepare a dramatically difficult monologue for a very important audition and I am certain that a major contributor to the success of that audition was due to the work I did with Anna. I cannot recommend her highly enough!"
- Charles Sy, tenor
