"I've always said that I owe the majority of my vocal success to the technique & training that I received while studying with Ann. As a young girl, I was always able to belt.  I wasn't confident singing everything else. After only a few sessions with Ann, my voice started to transform.  Ann has a gift for explaining vocal technique in a way that is easy to understand and replicate. I feel truly lucky to have had the opportunity to study with Ann while living in Seattle and to this day she is still my go-to vocal expert."

"Ann Evans has helped me grow immensely at every stage of my development as a singer and performer.  Ann has always worked hard to understand me as a unique individual. The combination of her expertise and care give Ann the ability to tailor lessons to each student's specific needs. I look forward to lessons with Ann for many years to come."

"Working with Ann has had a huge impact on my life. She has been an invaluable source of knowledge, as well as an amazing mentor and friend. During my time studying with Ann I really developed a solid foundation of vocal technique as well as performance technique. Ann knows how the body affects the voice, and I have come out of every lesson learning something new. Ann doesn't look at her students just as voice students, but as people who she really cares about and wants to see succeed, which makes her studio the perfect learning environment. I went into college auditions knowing that with Ann's coaching I was completely prepared and polished, and going into that phase of my life with that kind of confidence made all the difference in the world.  Love you, Ann!"

"When I first started my journey studying voice, I had no idea where I was. All I had was a love of music and the desire to be the best I could be. Then Ann gave me my compass. From the very first time I worked with her, I could tell she was someone who could give me the foundation and knowledge I needed, but not only that, I could tell she was a teacher who invested her whole being in her students. Over the years studying with her I learned the technique required to learn challenging roles like Elder Price in Book of Mormon. But more importantly I learned I could trust Ann her absolute best advice, teaching, and friendship.  Ann helped me start off right with the best college prep a student could hope for, helping me get into the University of Michigan & since then she has always continued to be there for me in times of need. Finding a teacher who can give you proper training and technique is a challenge, and finding one who is caring and invested is almost impossible. But Ann is a true triple threat of vocal technique, acting technique AND compassion."

"Ann Evans helped me refine my belt sound, making my high belt feel easier and more consistent. Her advice to students is clear and effective. Her knowledge of both contemporary and classic musical theatre is inexhaustible. She helped me find audition material that is appropriate for both my type and voice, and that I also simply love to sing."

"Ann has taught me more than any other teacher. She made me realize I do have a legit soprano voice and has taken me so much further with it. I always thought I was just a belter, now there are so many options for me with audition pieces, and I don't feel limited with roles that may be right for me. When I have something coming up or am trying to increase my book - It's so great (and really fun) to go into The Belt Book and find some cool selections - It really is an extension of Ann! Ann has also taught me so much about dynamics, and how to effectively tell a story with a song. I don't worry at all about vocal health anymore. As hard as Ann pushes me, it's never boring or stressful - it's ALWAYS fun!"
