Angela Vanstory Ward

Vocal coach Angela Ward likes to laugh and tells her students, "if it isn't fun, then you're doing the wrong thing." However, she is intensely committed to getting the job done. Ward says communication is the key - WORDS are our tools! Otherwise, we could all play the kazoo. If you have nothing to say, you are in the wrong place.

You must have something TO SAY!!
