About Rene

Knowing at the age of 5 that music was my life, by being brought up surrounded by praise music and gospel, my early exposure to music helped me to find every Instrument and style just my thing! I wanted to play everything and learn all aspects of music. I started with singing in the children's choir

Over the years, I've attempted voice lessons a few times and always walked away after a lesson or two. Not this time! Shelley has done the near impossible task of making me feel safe and at ease during our lessons. She is incredibly patient, supportive, warm, and hilarious, too! In addition to helping me with breathing and vocal techniques (which I desperately need, as I'm a beginner!) she also takes the time to nurture my emotional needs as well, as singing has always felt very vulnerable for me. She offers me mantras and writing exercises and is such a great listener. I highly recommend Shelley for any and all students!!
Micah P.
Shelley is a positive, professional, and effective teacher. My lessons with her were outstanding!

Every single lesson was tailored to my voice and my skill level. As I progressed, so did the lessons. Shelley prepared every lesson and conducted them all professionally. Over the course of a couple months, I went from not being able to carry a tune at all to singing comfortably and confidently in different genres.

She was excellent at teaching all aspects of voice including the anatomical structures involved and techniques to use the voice effectively.

She made difficult concepts easy to understand and used simple training tools very effectively. When I struggled in certain areas, she understood what my problem was even if I couldn't explain it well and helped me correct it.

In addition to her effectiveness as a coach, she is just a wonderful person and joy to work with. I plan on taking more lessons from her and I strongly recommend her to anyone!

My experience with Shelley was amazing!

I took weekly lessons with her for a few months and it was a great investment of time and money. I progressed from not being able to carry a tune at all to comfortably and confidently singing a variety of music.

She tailored every lesson to me so the lessons progressed as I did, which meant that my vocal skills and capabilities were continually growing.

Shelley's lessons were well structured and professional. They carried me through effective warmup exercises into singing that helped me continue to expand my range, delivery, and tone. I learned effective breathing techniques and proper shaping to get the clarity and tone that I wanted. I still implement her training on a daily basis and am now comfortable performing and recording a variety of musical styles and genres.

Her feedback and guidance was clear and easy to understand. Whenever there was concept I didn't understand, she knew how to explain it in a way that made it clear or use visual aids and basic tools to clarify.

Shelley helped me achieve a level of vocal control and confidence I didn't think would be possible for me.

Shelley is an outstanding teacher and I will take more lessons from her in the future!

Monica is a wonderful teacher. She is patient and my son loved her from the first day. She has an easygoing demeanor and she makes math fun for him; she also sends a bunch of worksheets for him to work on in between. My son is entering 4th grade and I wanted him to work on some preview math skills before starting schoo. Monica was the perfect person I was looking for to work with him.

I teach grammar, phonics, word recognition and comprehension, vocabulary, spelling, and effective, expressive, and creative writing skills. I have been an avid reader and writer ever since my elementary school days. At college, I received a perfect score on my departmental English exam. I have three education degrees: A double bachelor's in elementary education and music, and a master's in reading. I am presently a Mesa Laubach Literacy Council Board Member and Tutor. I love to help students become more proficient in the English language.

Working with Jenny has been a great experience.

She has a wealth of knowledge in music. She was raised around music so it comes as second nature to her. Her experience definitely shows from theory to technique, structure to general perspective.

Jen's wide-ranging experience allows her to accommodate different learning styles. Even when I was unsure of which methods were most suitable for me, she was able to determine an appropriate approach. Each lesson is tailored around your preference while still maintaining steady progress towards your goals.

She's flexible, patient, communicative, and fun to work with. Her versatility has made learning piano so much easier and more exciting for me than before. I'm always looking forward to each session. I've also been able to learn about other aspects of music, as she isn't limited to piano; she's knowledgeable of other instruments and teaches dance as well.

One of my favorite things about Jen is that, even though she's easy to work with, she ensures that I've truly grasped one concept before moving to the next. It's also always great to see her play (:

Highly recommended
Matthew
Jenny is on time always. The first lesson, she had the books ready and was very professional. I am very happy with her teaching abilities.
