Hi! I have 3 years experience teaching voice and songwriting to students of varying ages and skill levels. Lessons with me are tailored to each individual and their goals. Areas we can work on include but aren't limited to breathing technique, placement, dynamics and control, sight-singing, ear training, music theory, arrangement, and audition preparation. We can work on all this through singing your favorite songs and styles of music! I aim to make lessons fun and enjoyable while still focusing on achieving your goals! I am so excited for us to get started!

Why do some melodies stand the test of time and others don't? Why are some words better choices than others? How do people write good songs? It takes a lot of time, some guidance and mostly discipline. I will help you to stay on track and provide support based on personal industry experience.

A 30 or 60 minute lesson is a great add-on to a voice lesson and it grants the opportunity to learn how the two are connected. If done properly, the two can support one another, helping the singer and the writer share a both voices, the written and the physical voice.

About Jessica

Hi! My name is Jessica and I can't wait to help you find YOUR voice because YOUR voice is unlike anyone else's . No two people sound exactly the same; isn't that a beautiful thing? I truly believe it is, so much so that I've dedicated over two decades of my life to it. After double majoring at the

My goal in taking lessons was to get back to singing after a long hiatus of lessons and performing... to reclaim my love of singing and break through my insecurity. Jessica's warmth, humor and expertise helped me do just that. I learned new techniques and had a full on very emotional breath through right in her living room!

She made me feel safe, confident, and helped me learn about my unique voice as well as shared her expertise in proper breathing and gaining vocal control and increasing range.

In sum, Jessica is an incredible vocal coach and I'd definitely recommend her.
Sally
Jessica is an amazing teacher! She not only understands all the technicalities behind singing but she works to your strengths and helps you cultivate both your inner and outer voice! I felt very comfortable with her and even got emotional a few times as it was such a powerful experience to be able to be vulnerable and engage in something I love so much. Jessica is the perfect mix between professional and experiential where you'll learn skills but you will also have fun doing it. I highly recommend Jessica for your musical needs. I look forward to my future sessions!! It also helps she is incredibly talented! An all around win and positive experience :)!

I learned so much from my lessons with Arrica! It was a great balance of learning the basics/ warmups I needed to build a better foundation -- and practicing and learning a song I wanted to focus on. Arrica was supportive, encouraging, and very helpful and specific in her feedback.

"Lorin helped me hone my songwriting skills immensely, by not only teaching but collaborating with me when necessary. It was refreshing to find someone who put his teachings into practical learning, where I could see the outcomes become apparent. He’s a nice dude, and is experienced equally across his fields. He guided me to making intelligent choices for equipment purchases, both instruments and pro audio gear. We first met while he was living in New York, and boy has he traveled since. I think living in so many different states, and being that well journeyed has given him good cultural depth to his work. Check out some of his own collabs with singers and musicians from all over the world...that really says it all."
