Jacquelynn creates lessons that are centered on the student’s interests to keep them motivated and engaged while teaching the importance of technical facility and musicianship.

*** Lesson Details ***

I conduct my lessons with an emphasis on students musical interests while promoting the development of technical facility. Each lesson begins with a series of warm ups targeted to promote the students individual technical growth on his/her instrument. Then, we progress into song study. However, no lesson I teach is the same as every student as every student has unique wants and needs that change with every lesson. I like to create a fun environment that promotes the freedom and comfort for students to explore their instruments and grow. I have taught for many years and I have found that I am easy-going, understanding and always professional in lessons. I had so many wonderful kind teachers that sincerely inspired me when I first began my musical studies and that same passion, love of music and empathy is what I strive to bring to my own lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***

Lessons in the living room, piano, recording software, flute, guitars, waiting area for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***

Me - stands, tuners, metronome, possibly keyboard/piano if necessary, stereo, computer

Students- will be required to purchase certain books, instrument, blank CDs or device to record lessons

*** Specialties ***

I have been trained classically my entire life on voice and flute. However, Berklee college of Music really trained me to be a singer of all genres. I stress good technique and classical is a good tool, it does not allow for gaps in facility. Thus, when working with a student I I make sure that we focus both on classical technique and whatever genre they want to excel in, I show them how to connect the classical to the genre of their choice. I am a trained performer with vast experience and I have many tools that can help people with problems such as stage fright really embrace performing. For instance, I will right words connected with an emotion on flashcards and flash them and make singer act them out while performing a piece, it helps show that if you sing the meaning of the piece and try to share that, nerves tend to be easier to deal with. I have also trained in Los Angeles with the Aaron Speiser Acting Studio and am more than able to coach with monologues and scen study/help a performer really delve into the character of their piece.
