Farewell, Brian Hotchkin!
Staff instructor Brian Hotchkin joined the Resound NW team a year ago, and we've been delighted to have him with us. At the end of this month, Brian will be bringing his musical talents to Santa Barbara, California, where he plans to continue his teaching and singing career. He brought the joy of music to many voice and piano students at our studio. We remember fondly his performances at our Studio Gatherings, a highlight of which was his recent version of "Don't Rain on My Parade."  While we are sad to see him go, we wish him all the best and know he'll find success wherever his journey leads him!
An Interview with Joannah Ball, 
Voice and Piano Instructor

[Joannah Ball joined the Resound NW staff last month as a pinao and voice teacher.  Karin Cravotta had a chance to interview Joannah to hear more about her teaching and singing experience.]


Joannah Ball has been singing and playing piano since she was a young girl. “Music-making has always been a joyful part of my life. I sang constantly around the house and joined a youth chorus in elementary school. Piano was also another love of mine, and there were many happy hours learning from my mother who still has a thriving piano studio today. The family story is that I used to watch opera with my grandma and subsequently run through the house singing at the top of my lungs, ‘I want to sing in the operaaaa!’”

Joannah’s mother began teaching her piano when she was only four years old and continued to teach her all throughout high school. “My mom was a very influential person on my musical journey. We did lots of singing at home, and music was truly woven into the fabric of our daily lives. She’s the person who taught me how to love music and work hard at it. My mom and dad are an incredible positive light in my life, and I certainly wouldn’t be where I am today without their unfailing support.” Read more-->
