Influences: I was influenced mostly from a few piano teachers I had and then just from listening to singers that accompany themselves such as Paul Mccartney.
Hello there! Thank you for coming by my profile and checking it out! My name is Anna P. and I live in Miami Florida in the Kendall area near Dadeland Mall. I graduated with a Bachelors in Music from the University of Miami Frost School of Music in 2010 where I studied Jazz Voice and Music Business. I graduated summa cum laude from the program. My style of teaching is laid back but focused. I like to give the student a chance to explore new possibilities while guiding them in the right direction. I have been singing since I could talk, however I began voice lessons of my own in high school where I sang choir and began performing at talent shows and also around South Florida. I have studied voice with great teachers in South Florida such as Beth Cohen, Rachel Lebon, and Nicole Yarling. I learned so much from those voice lessons that have aided me in teaching my own.
I have performed professionally around South Florida for about 7 years in events/venues such as Carnival on the Mile, Blue Martini, Bardot, Florida Grammy Showcase, Arscht Center, Sobe Food and Wine Festival and more. I am still performing and recording original music as I am releasing a cd May 2013 (very soon!) I have auditioned for the X Factor and the Voice so I know how the whole process works and can help students aspiring to audition. I have had recognition from Perez Hilton for a video I put on youtube. I work with many musicians on a constant basis and have learned a lot from my experience and education. Hope to be teaching and guiding you through music! Thanks! xo
