"It is with great insight and care that Roxanne creates an environment where one can find their way to their voice. Working with Roxanne has allowed me to identify and find ways to overcome my challenges. I now sing from a place that reflects my personality and experiences and it is very rewarding. This journey puts me in mind of the old adage: ‘It’s impossible, said pride; It’s risky, said experience; It’s pointless, said reason; Give it a try, said the heart.’ Roxanne helps you find your heart and it is so much fun!!”
Roxanne has been teaching music to my 6 year old for 2 years and has just started with my 4 year old. Both of them absolutely adore her, and look forward to their weekly lessons. Before we started, she told me that she would teach the kids music theory, and they wouldn’t even know they were learning. It was true! Every week is a new game that has kept them focused, and taught them music essentials, while having fun. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Roxanne. She is a great teacher, and has become a great friend. Her energy and vitality has filled our home with a love for music, and that is priceless!
I had been a stay at home mom for approximately 8 years and my youngest child was going back to school, I was thinking of going back to school to become a teacher so that I could have the same schedule off as my children. I met with Roxanne and mentioned to her my plans and she said to me “why would you do that when clearly you are so good with finances” We had a very interesting conversation that day and I realized she was right. This began my journey looking at other options in finance and really felt she saw into my life. My research led me to do mortgages, which I have been doing for approximately 12 years and now for the past 6 years I am an owner of a successful mortgage brokerage. Thank you Roxanne for your insight and most of all for speaking into my life which gave me the confidence to move in the right direction.
Confidence Booster has helped me connect big time with that little shy girl that always hung back.. kept a low profile, sat in the back of the room not wanting to draw attention to herself. I am now singing in a motown group thanks to Roxanne , belting out songs with abandon, strutting my stuff , all glammed up .. having a ball.. I am 64. Never too late.
Roxanne’s “Crossing the line workshop” allowed me to comfortably step out of my comfort zone. I know it sounds kind of counter intuitive. But Roxanne creates just that, a safe environment for you to stretch without fear of judgement. I played and made sounds with my voice that I have never experienced before. I highly recommend the experience!
No matter how I feel when I arrive for my voice lesson, I leave feeling refreshed and confident that I can take myself to the next step. Roxanne is perceptive and knows how to motivate people to realistically achieve their potential.
Speaking as a private voice student and also as a member of the Tonettes, a 5 member vocal group that Roxanne coaches, I am amazed at how much progress we have made in such a short time. Roxanne’s personal qualities of good humour, patience, persistence, flexibility, generosity and vision help create a wonderful learning environment where even the most self-conscious student feels safe enough to unfold. Thanks to Roxanne’s wise mix of encouragement, pushing, teasing and consoling, I located my “inner Mahalia” (at last!), and singing with the Tonettes is sheer joy and a dream come true. Learning from Roxanne how to harmonize and blend together musically has taught us so much about ourselves, how we approach things, the way we work with others, our sense of purpose. Working with Roxanne has made us grow! Xo
It all began with this simple statement spoken to a friend. “I would like to find my voice.” A conversation with Roxanne was arranged shortly thereafter. I am learning to use my voice with the authority given to me by God. This is exciting. But, the thing that astounded me was that Roxanne knew me the moment she saw me. She saw my core and correctly named me a “Tiger”. I was not at all surprised by this assertion. I knew who I was inside, even though I portrayed a timid young woman. God has given Roxanne many gifts, and she willingly and joyfully shares those gifts with her students. God has used Roxanne to encourage me to be the unique person that God has created.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
May God continue to bless you and use you in mighty ways. Battle on!!
Through Confidence Booster Roxanne has taught me to love myself and to open up my heart using my voice and freeing my spirit even when I feel unworthy and think the rest of the world will judge me. In my every day I do this with my head up and my shoulders back – even in the most daunting moments. I would not have said this a year ago.
To truly give justice to what she has done for me, I should say that Roxanne didn’t only give me the confidence to break out of my shell and sing from the heart, or should I say from the diaphragm, she also gave me a voice.”
Roxanne has a genius for resurrecting the uninhibited musical delights of childhood and unlocking the voice of our inner diva.
