Joanna is deeply passionate about her work as a music educator, whether she is arranging and teaching complex harmonies for pop and musical theater choruses, music directing musical theater productions, or exploring the theory behind the music that we love. Joanna spent the last 5 years in the Boston area, teaching students of all ages in community music schools, Boston Public Schools, theater companies, and private homes.

Joanna lives and teaches with boundless energy, humor, and high expectations, and encourages creativity, confidence, a constructively critical musical ear, and a genuine love and enthusiasm for music from all of her students.
