About Jennifer
I am a professional singer-songwriter and have been teaching lessons fulltime for the last 12 years. I teach students of all ages and levels of experience. My current range of students include: kids with learning/developmental disabilities, teenagers who have starred in school musicals, and performing adult singer-songwriters. Whatever your background or desire, I can help you to cultivate your unique musical potential, and to strengthen your creative voice.

As a professional vocalist and pianist, I have worked freelance, in a variety of settings, over the years--including solo, in wedding bands, small jazz and rock/pop groups and with big bands. I have been singing with the Mood Swings Big Band for 6+ years. During that time, we have performed at the White House, the Chamber of Commerce and in Kennebunkport, Maine (at the Bush e
state).

I also have an extensive professional and personal background in meditation (10 years), astrology (5 years) and healing (particularly Reiki, 4 years). I am very interested in the intersection between a healing/mindfulness-awareness approach and singing/playing piano.

Jennifer is an awesome piano teacher! She works great with children! My 6 year old is very engaged, interested and ready to learn! She leaves each week saying how she cannot wait for her next lesson and she practices a lot at home. I believe this comes from Jennifer's excellence in teaching! I would highly recommend her!

About Orla
Hi there! My name is Orla Conway and I can’t wait to sing with you!!
-The biggest difference between my teaching style and any other local voice coach is: my Relaxation First method.
This wholistic, centering, and therapeutic technique uses guided relaxation to insure that students not only learn about proper vocal technique, but actually master it in a way that is natural to their own voice and learning style.
I am dedicated to nurturing the differences in each students voice, and through this customized approach my students learn to understand their bodies and gain total control over their intonation, resonance, and vibrance.
This simply means that the student will be able to sing any style of music they want!
My Relaxtion First methodology is often viewed by my students as deeply therapeutic as I lead them through exerci
ses which steady the breath, relax the muscles, and center the body. We approach singing as a natural form of therapy that helps the singer understand their body fully, and express themselves effortlessly.
Together we will eliminate tension, strain and pain from the singing experience. We will gain comfort, ease and will highlight the beauty in your unique sound (as opposed to attempting to make your voice conform to someone else's style).
I am here to make you sound like the most authentic version of yourself, and to find the deep joy and expression that comes from letting your voice be heard!

-The most important thing to me when working with singers of any age or ability is:
Helping them learn the correct techniques to keep their voices safe and healthy while singing. A Beginner Lesson Plan begins by covering the three main foundations of healthy happy singing:
1.Posture
2.Breathing
3.Placement (head voice, mask voice, chest voice)
After covering these techniques, my students will be able to achieve almost any style and level of singing they desire. It is totally possible to stretch your vocal range, learn a new style, or incorporate movement into your songs if you follow this method!
I also make sure to focus a lot on confidence and stage presence throughout all of our lessons to help students prepare for upcoming auditions, showcases, concerts, and talent shows.

Applying my Relaxation First methodology to these age-old foundations of strong vocal technique make it easy and natural for you to find your voice and transition out of your stage fright so that you can own that stage like you were born to be there, because you were!!
These are not only vocal coaching sessions, but complete performance-ready-workshops.
I am here to make all your singing and vocal performance dreams come true!

-I began my vocal training:
at the age of 12 learning how to sing classical and musical theater music. I eventually went on to learn jazz and rock vocal techniques before going to Berklee College of Music in Boston where I learned how to sing celtic music and alternative contemporary styles. I have my own band which I write all the music for, and we have performed all around Boston and in New York City.
My students have achieved admission into Berklee College of Music in Boston, lead roles in their school plays such as Peter Pan, Into the Woods, and Julius Caesar. They have achieved new levels of confidence and power that have made them the stars of their local open mics, talent shows, and recitals!

Please feel free to message me with any questions.
It’s my job to make this process as seamless and comfortable for you as possible :)
Let’s get singing!

I was only able to take five lessons with Orla, but within a short period of time she helped me improve the quality of my chest, mask/mix, and head voice. She teaches with clarity, and she gave me the skills I needed to continue learning after the lesson had ended. If you are new to singing or want to try honing your skills, Orla is a great teacher for you.

Orla is a very effective and supportive teacher - she makes a point to communicate the lessons is a very personalized and positive way. I've progressed more with her than any other singing teacher I've had. Can't wait to continue my lessons!

About Rob
Did you know that most people do not know they have an innate ability to heal themselves? In today’s stressful environment, we simply forget that we are capable of balancing our lives and healing ourselves without the use of pharmaceuticals or other external means.

I help those that have forgotten this universal gift to rediscover it and to understand how it works in their own bodies and lives. I help clients remove the blockages in their mind and body so that they can create the life they were meant to live, free of stress. In short, I become a catalyst for change.

My clients learn a variety of Qigong forms and skills so they can make the necessary changes in their lives to live life more fully. Do you want to change your life to make it healthier and more fulfilling?”

Mission/Philosophy

The Taoist philosophy illustrates that there w
ill always be both negative (yin) and positive (yang) in all aspects of life. Despite our inherited weaknesses, early conditioning and traumas, as adults, we have a choice. We have a choice to focus on the positive or negative.

Through self awareness and by taking responsibility for ourselves we can not only find meaning in our lives but our individual path to self transformation and happiness.

Starting with ourselves, we can live by example and hopefully inspire others, in turn, helping the whole one part at a time. It is Three Treasures mission to help people find their own individual path of self improvement by discovering their strengths and obstacles and how to live life to the fullest.

About Francia
I am a passionate and grounded Yoga instructor. I have a true love for cultivating peace, mindfulness and kindness. Yoga is a journey that may lead you to places you never thought you would go. It is a physical and often times intense practice but the rewards are so worth it!

You can expect changes not only in your flexibility and strength but also in your state of mind. Many of my students realize that they begin to develop a sense of overall calmness and relaxation that comes very naturally when you delve into a yogic practice.

I am the mother of 3 amazing children and it shows in my nurturing way of teaching Yoga.

My goal is to help guide the way to a healthier, happier version of each and every one of my students.

I look forward to helping you start on your yogic journey today!
