Rana Poindexter-Berryman was born and raised in Washington, DC. Her gift for music was apparent at an early age, and Rana began playing the violin in the DC Youth Orchestra Program at the age of 4. Her musical ability led her to study many instruments, and eventually the oboe became her primary focus. 

By the age of 17, Rana had extensively traveled throughout the United States, Canada and many countries, performing Classical music. Soon after her travels, Rana completed her a Bachelor's Degree of Fine Arts/Mass Media. She then went on to perform professionally in both stage and film.

On stage Rana proved to be a triple threat, showcasing her remarkable talents as an actor, dancer, and singer. Past stage productions include: Little Shop of Horrors, Dream Girls (where she played Lorell Robinson), Black Nativity, Jelly's Last Jam, and the national tour of Ain't Misbehavin'. Rana has also performed with the likes of Yolanda Adams, Jennifer Holliday, Jeff Majors, Mercedes Ellington, Irene Cara, and many more. She has opened for Mary J. Blige, Latoya Luckett of Destiny's Child, and The Gap Band, and has sung at Inaugural Balls for the President of the United States. Most recently, Rana has recorded with various legendary artists and also contributed as a songwriter on many of their albums. Rana's great talent has also been seen on national television, movies, videos and national magazines. She is currently working on an album of her own. 

Rana teaches both instrumental and vocal music, and is happy to work with students of all ages and skill levels. Over the years, she has taught with the DC Youth Orchestra Program as well as in private lessons, and also served as an Artistic Director and Assistant Music Director at Immanuel's Church. Rana's lessons are fun and engaging, ensuring that each student grows in his or her love of music while receiving a thorough and well-rounded musical education.
