Voice & Piano Instruction
Carianne is new to El Dorado County and brings with her thirty years of instruction in Northern California, Los Angeles, and New York City. An accomplished pianist with extensive choral experience, she began doing theatre professionally at 17 and graduated with both a BA in Music and a BA in Theatre from CSU, Chico. Her professional highlights include regional contracts in wine country, the Central Coast, and Utah. Prior to her move to Manhattan, Carianne enjoyed four years performing as Union Talent with the Walt Disney Company in Southern California.
Carianne is trained in various styles, though she believes excellence in singing any style begins with the basics of healthy technique and the development of a fluid and strong instrument. Whether you are preparing a concert, working on school auditions, recovering from a vocal injury, or want to use the best form of your voice at church or karaoke, Carianne can help.
Carianne accompanies all of her own lessons and emphasizes reading skills and the concurrent study of piano and voice. She also includes curriculum in music and art history and loves focusing on the science and math of music as well as the wonderful and varied ways our bodies can produce it. Audition skills and performance prep are a large part of beginning a career in music, and Carianne provides that, as well as repertoire consulting and book-building for those who are focusing on that path.
Curiosity is encouraged in all lessons; where there is a question, she will help you find the answer.

"Will Boulé graduated with distinction from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2020 with a Master's Degree in Fingerstyle Guitar Performance. His graduate recital was a highlight of our academic year and demonstrated his ability to dig deeply into both the technical and music aspects of the repertoire. His concentration on the music of Michael Hedges and Leo Kottke yielded outstanding results. Will added immeasurably to our program. He has a keen understanding of fingerstyle guitar - looking back and looking forward."
