Music Lessons By Annie Bonsignore

Music has been in my life since I was born, and to me it has always been a source of joy, community, personal empowerment, and creative expression. And while I was performing as early as 6 years old, it didn't take me long to discover my love of teaching it as well. And by the age of 18, I was instructing primary and high school students at multiple schools as a choir mistress and general music teacher in the Durban, South Africa area.

Upon my arrival in the Toronto area, I was fortunate to establish a successful teaching studio, in addition to becoming a regular performer within the jazz scene and music festival circuit. In 2017 I met my husband and pianist Stu Harrison, and we relocated to Milton to start our family :) 

While my performing and writing career has continued to develop, with 3 albums and over 150 original songs under my belt, my love and excitement for teaching has never wained. and I'm thrilled to have opened my private studio in Milton Ontario now that my two little ones are a little older. 

My goal with every student, every lesson, is to leave them feeling energized and unlocked. Students receive easy to understand homework and practice instructions, and we always celebrate big and small milestones alike.

Get ready to be inspired! Singing is a joyful, fulfilling experience, and I've spent most of my life helping others gain the confidence and skill to begin enjoying their own voice.  One of my biggest secrets for success as a teacher is my ability to genuinely inspire and motivate you to want to improve, work, and achieve your own goals, while still working within a proven structure of exercises, techniques, and repertoire.

Meet The teacher

Maintaining my teaching studio has always been an important musical part of my life. If you’re ready to improve your voice, whether a total beginner or a seasoned professional, I'm ready to customize a plan that will give you the success and confidence you've been looking for. 

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.

14,000 HOURS OF EXPERIENCE

Annie has been teaching for over 20 years, in public and private schools, one-on-one coaching, as well as online. Her experience at keeping people inspired and immediately honing in on areas of improvement are what has made her successful as an educator and mentor

“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”

“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!”

“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!”
