Student Testimonials

Julianne Fournier, soprano:

Dr. Pomfret is a gifted musician and teacher. She is passionate about music and her love for the art is evident in her holistic, healthy and energetic teaching techniques. I am so grateful and fortunate to have had the opportunity to study with a musician/teacher of her caliber for 8 years. She prepared me for my college auditions and helped me successfully apply to music school. At every audition I was complimented on my professionalism and vocal technique and that is because of the instruction, attention to detail and example from Dr. Pomfret. I am now an upcoming junior at Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey, where I am studying to be a music teacher. Thank you Dr. Pomfret!


Erica Brookhyser, mezzo=soprano:

I was looking for a voice teacher at a time in my professional career when I waned to understand my maturing voice.  Bonnie's attention to anatomy, her well-designed warm-ups, and her exceptional musicianship all impressed me in my first lessons.  After a few months in her studio, my voice started to gain the range, ease, and clarity I had ben struggling to find on my own.  I have found Bonnie to be an extremely supportive teacher who offers sound career advice and steadfast encouragement in equal measure.
