Renn Bibeau - Voice and Piano
“Music and performance have been the most powerful force in my life. I believe that music provides an opportunity for people to connect authentically with themselves and offers an immense and deeply creative outlet. In my lessons with students, I aim to discover an individual’s goals, and then create a custom program to provide the student with the skills and knowledge to reach them.”
Renn has a strong background in theory, music history, and languages. Her approach with students aims to foster a solid foundation in how music works, as well as how the instrument and player work in creating the music. She offers an inclusive and safe environment for students to experiment, create and learn while discovering their own unique sound.
