I come from a long line of teachers and mentors, and it’s always been a part of what I consider as being a whole musician – passing along what I’ve learned, and helping people grow. Even as my recording career took off in South Africa, I still insisted on keeping teaching as a part of my life.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been 20 years now, having logged over 14,000 hours of teaching time. And I continue to love the process, and seek new challenges for both myself and my students.

What Annie’s Students Say
Four students discuss their experience.
Student & CBC Producer
“Annie is an incredibly gifted singer with an uncanny ability to hear where you need improvement. She teaches in the most loving manner – heads and shoulders above the blunt (and scary) music teachers I’ve had in the past. I haven’t just vastly improved my singing ability over the past year, but learned things about myself — truly “finding my voice.” 5/5 stars”
Student & Performer
“Annie is AMAZING!! A truly wonderful singer who can really sing AND really teach! 5 stars!”
Student & Performer
“You will not get a better vocal coach than Annie. She focuses completely on what needs to be done to help you to open and expand your vocal abilities. I can’t commend Annie enough for all the she has done to help me improve, gain confidence and increasing my command of my voice. Annie you are the best!”
Huda Aida Kaissi
“Besides being a beautiful soul, Annie is the best at what she does. I have been taking lessons with her for only 4 months now and she has already managed to unlock areas in my voice that I never knew I owned. She helped me widen my range and gain control over my voice, and she’ll always give you 110% during a lesson. Be assured that you will get the best of the best training with Annie!”
