Ann has had over seven years of formal training under ex-met opera singer Charlo Bowls in addition to various choir training. As a native Houstonian, Ann is a well known singer/performer and guitarist on the local nightclub scene, the Windjammer Cruise Lines, opening act for headliners on the College Circut (NACCP), worldwide hotels and resort areas, etc.

Ann will teach you how to be better prepared for the music industry whether as a singer/performer or as a musician. She offers several styles of vocal training such as (Seth Riggs "Singing with the Stars", Estelle Lieblings "Vocal Method" and "The Vocal Coaches")

"Teaching voice is a science", Ann begins, "there is nothing new about it, just intensive research! Teachers who state they have come up with their own method and never had formal training, is like going to a doctor who didn't go to college! I offer a concise step-by-step method, as if you were learning an instument. To me, the most important help I can offer to my vocal students, is how to maintain a good singing voice and how to avoid possible vocal injuries."
