My name is StephanieRiann, I`m originally from Nova Scotia, Canada but now make my home in Japan with my husband.
I have been teaching English lessons for 3 years now with a leading English school in Japan where I have receieved exstensive training. I am also teaching English at my local community centre. In Canada I was a volunteer to help Japanese people in the city of Toronto learn English or study for TOEIC exam.
I have a Masters of Music degree from the Univeristy of Ottawa in Canada. I have multiple EP and LP albums avalaible on all digital music retailors sites (under my former performing name Stephanie Coldwell-Anderson) and have been the reciepient of a FACTOR/Government of Canada recording grant for my original childrens songs. I am also a member of SOCAN (the Society
of Composers, Authors
and Music Publishers)
of Canada. My newest album Ultralife will be released August 2019 under Stephanie Riann.
I have been teaching music (voice, piano, theory and songwriting) for over 15 years (in Canada) with a thriving in home-studio in the proviences of Nova Scotia and Ontario and at the private school Merriam Music in Toronto, Ontario. In Canada I was also a Registered Music Teacher with ORMTA (Ontario Registared Music Teachers Association). I have continued teaching music ( English through singing ) in Japan at my local community centre and recently restarted private lessons at my in-home studio and online.
Teaching and performing are my passions and I wish to bring Joy to people of all ages through learning music and English. When I`m not teaching my hobbies are learning Japanese and doing Japanese culture and music experiences , cooking, hiking, travelling and camping with my husband and friends.

I aim to make my lessons fun and energetic, with a relaxed atmosphere. I also believe if your laughing you`re learning so let`s have a good time. Lessons are avalaible right away or by trail lesson this is the students choice. Currently, my English and music lessons are geared towards teens, young adults and adults/elderly. English lessons are customized by level, Introductory Beginner, Advanced Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced as well as free talk classes .
I will also be offering different types of songwriting and singing classes and in the future I plan to offer a music class avalaible for children in English.
Let`s work together as a team and have fun learning!
I look forward to meeting you soon!
