Joanna came to the school with a passion for music and a passion for teaching. Here she is able to blend the two and apply her years of coaching together. Jo is actively involved in Musical Theatre which takes her across Canada to various theatres and venues. Being involved in Musical Theatre has allowed Jo to explore every musical style from Classic Opera to Rock and Roll.
Jo grew up singing with her Mom and Sisters around the piano and found that at the young age of 6 she was ready for the stage and started to take weekly lessons to develop her vocal skills. Since then she has actively worked with several teachers and coaches to develop her range and perfect different styles.
She runs musical workshops and is part of The Community Players Leadership Team to help grow and educate the community in music and theatre in the tri-city area. Joanna and her sister Danielle created With a Song to help fight against the battle of cancer and find a cure. These fundraising benefit concerts were both produced and directed by Danielle and Jo and have raised over $10,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society and the Grand River Regional Cancer Centre.
