Hi! I am a conservatory graduate with degrees in Vocal Performance (BM, Oberlin Conservatory, MM, Boston Conservatory.) I have studied vocal pedagogy at both the undergraduate and graduate level, and have experience teaching and coaching students of all ages. As a pianist, I work in the Boston area as an accompanist, keyboardist, and music director, mainly in musical theater, so I am familiar with coaching singers in that style as well.
I believe that any singing style (classical, musical theater, jazz, pop, etc.) can benefit from a solid technical foundation based in breath, flexibility, and speech-to-singing connection. Although my singing background is in opera, my goal is to teach students to use good technique to free themselves to be comfortable and expressive in any style that they choose!
(Generally, I prefer to teach students of at least middle-school / tween age -- that's when the voice physically starts to mature into the adult instrument. However, I am happy to teach younger children piano and other musical skills, including some singing, with the goal of building their overall musicianship. )

I am a theater music director, pianist and conductor located outside Boston, MA and available for travel. My training, while rooted in the classical idiom, also includes jazz, blues, rock and popular styles as well as various multicultural genres. This background, combined with my sight-reading ability, makes me ideally suited for musical theater. In addition to my skills as a performer, I have extensive experience in collaborative piano, primarily with vocalists and musical theater/opera repertoire, and I am very good at teaching people how to sing well.
My recent experience has ranged from schools to community theaters and youth drama programs. I work well with children and adults alike, and have a passion for creative collaboration.
I am a member of the American Federation of Musicians local #300 (Merrimack Valley).

I say I teach people but not "singers," because singing should be an enhanced part of your life, not a separated activity. Every day, because of life, we sing slightly differently according to our mood and personal experiences. It is important to work with these shifts to sound the best we can at any given moment. Some days you'll find one approach will work, while others will require different methods.
I believe in teaching safe and sustainable methods of singing. The voice is the instrument of the human being and it is important to treat it with such respect and safety so it will always be available to you as a lifelong skill. I also teach specific, clear vocal technique based on placement, breath, support, phrasing, and word enunciation, and help each student apply this technique in a performance-based way so that they can utilize it outside of lessons. It is important for each student to understand how all of these points work together so that they have the skills and knowledge to adjust themselves for any auditions, performances, class work, etc. which will always require specific adjustments "on the go."
Finally, singing is a musical form of expression and I believe it can impact a person's life beyond the obvious skill-based applications. I encourage my students to be creative and express themselves through music in a way that enhances their personal relationships with themselves and others. And most importantly, I believe that singing should always be fun and fulfilling even while the student is growing and learning.

Learning to sing is a very exciting and personal experience. Whether you are new to singing, or looking to study with a more experienced teacher, I give my students the tools to be confident and intelligent singers. I am comfortable teaching a variety of vocal styles; from classical, to rock, to musical theater. My goal as a teacher is to help the singer develop a clear sound, proper breathing and body alignment, as well as develop their artistry. I am a trained opera singer and have experience with teaching children to adult singers. I have always had a deep love of music and singing, and am always interested in working with students who share the same love.

"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
