I have been a teacher for almost 20 years. I have taught at the Musicians Institute, UCLA's Extension Entertainment Studies and the Grammy, developing artists for Industry Showcases. I teach stage performance, song production, songwriting, vocal identity, image persona, and all that is needed in the ever-changing music industry. Some of the people I have worked with include: Anderson Paak(Silk Sonics), Bishop Briggs (Arista), Troy Laureate (Ariana Grande Music Director/David Foster), Natania Lalwani (Songwriter with JayZ's Roc Nation), King Mala (KMGMT Indie Artist), Travis Cormier (Canadian Idol Winner) and more. They all have gone on to have successful careers in music!
"Anika is a phenomenal artist, producer and individual. The minute we began recording she came up with creative ideas of making the take better and didn’t hesitate to offer me new suggestions. Anika is the first person I go to when it comes to songwriting and vocal production and after gaining more experience in the music business I have found her to be the best in this industry today."
