Annie believes that music lessons should be fun and enjoys making a personal connection with her students while maintaining a high level of education based in theory and technique.
Annie holds the degrees of Master of Music in Vocal Pedagogy and Performance from Westminster Choir College and Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from Western Connecticut State University.

Most recently, she performed at the Kelsey Theater in West Windsor, NJ in "Crazy for You" (Irene) and "Thoroughly Modern Millie" (Alice). She has also presented musical theater recitals with friend, colleague and collaborator Shane Tapley entitled "Time" and "The Doctor Is In", both at All Saints Episcopal Church in Princeton, NJ.
