BIOGRAPHY - LUANNE ASTA
Music has played a major role in Luanne Asta’s life since she was a child living the small northern Canadian town of Swan River, Manitoba — she has followed her passion wherever it has taken her, from Manitoba- to Vancouver-to NYC. Luanne trained classically at the Royal Conservatory of Music for 15 years, winning her first national award at the age of 10. It wasn’t long before her talent brought her south, first to the city of Brandon, Manitoba, to continue her study with renowned vocal teacher Sylvia Richardson. At the same time, she was hired by the Winnipeg Jets NHL and CFL Winnipeg BlueBombers to sing the national anthems at home games in Winnipeg, a city more than two hours away. An eventual relocation to Winnipeg was inevitable; she spent one year in there before moving again, this time westward, to Kelowna, British Columbia, where she began attending business school, temporarily putting her music career on hold. Eventually, Luanne moved to Vancouver and music was calling her back; she recorded her debut album, Winning Starts With Beginning, in 1998, which went on to be nominated for two Western Canadian Music Awards and three Canadian Country Music Association Awards, as well as producing two top 40 hits on the Canadian Country Music Charts. Uncomfortable with her new-found spotlight, Luanne decided teaching would be the best route for her, so, in 2001, made the leap into music teaching full time. She opened the Heartland Music School in the Vancouver suburbs and, almost immediately, her roster grew to 80 students. It was one of those students who drew her to New York City for the first time; Luanne went to Manhattan to see her student perform on Broadway and fell in love with fast-paced metropolis.
Luanne is an award winning Vocal Coach, who's merits include the Best of New York Award in both 2015 and 2016. Her latest release, Peace In the City, has two Top 20 Hits on the Latin America Christian Radio Charts including Lead, Kindly Light and Our Savior's Love. In 2018, Luanne conducted the American Choir Tour in Germany and Austria, which included a performance in the highly prestigious Mozarteum Theatre in Salzburg, Austria. Her recent performances also include the Passion Play Theatre in Oberramagau, Germany.
Luanne studied voice, conducting and digital music composition at the Juilliard School. She is a certified Musikgarten teacher and Certified New York School of Vocal Coaching Voice Instructor. She is a published composer of children's songs, hymns and pop music.
Luanne's has 32 years of educating experience, as she is the Founder and Director of Singhampton LLC, and Hamptons Learning Cottage; teaching children and adults online and in the Hamptons, NY. She also serves as Music Director for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for the Plainview Stake, Long Island, NY.
