After Teaching voice for the past few years it's clear that one thing is universal no matter what kind of singer you are: It takes an impressive amount of courage and self awareness to be heard through song. The Voice is one of the highest form of emotional expression, taking the whole body; as the whole body is the instrument. In these lessons we will focus on breath, bring attention to tension, support, and placement of the voice. Giving you the freedom to be heard. I'm excited to work together with you to find your voice.

"The best singers are relaxed in performance. That is they have no extraneous tension. Their muscles are ready to receive the impulse necessary to fulfill action and will ripple with energy."
Kristin Linklater

I started lessons with Bill to learn classical guitar after 5 years of self-taught electric and steel string acoustic playing. My playing has improved immensely since I started working with him. Not only has he introduced me to classical guitar but he has taught me how to effectively practice to constantly improve. Bill has a wealth of experience and knowledge to draw upon and I cannot say enough good things. A++
Charles
I have been a classical guitar student of Bill's for the past 6 months. In retirement, I have decided to take what was an "off and on" affair with the classical guitar (I'm not a beginner) and, instead, commit the necessary time and energy to truly learning the instrument. These have been my first serious classical guitar lessons. Prior to these lessons, I was entirely "self-taught" which means I created a whole bunch of bad habits for myself and was not progressing at all. Bill refers to me as a "remedial" student which I think is a perfect description of my playing. Through Bill, I have learned proper technique which, in turn, has improved my tonality and musicality with the classical guitar. Bill has identified my bad habits, broken them down, shown the proper way to overcome them and makes sure I don't "back-slide" into my bad habits again. Bill paces the lessons according to ability, not covering material that's too advanced while still ensuring that the lesson is challenging. In each lesson, Bill is positive, encouraging yet kindly critical so that I know I am making progress yet always aware of what areas I need to work on. Bill has the right "make-up" for a teacher and I am pleased, and without reservation, to give Bill a 5 star rating.
Steve
I have been a student of Bill's for almost three years. Bill's teaching is characterized by clarity of expression, high standards, patience and an upbeat and pleasant disposition. He is always clear and direct when explaining the technical aspects of playing- no matter how complex the matter at hand. He holds you (and himself) to a high standard- no shortcuts- you learn to do it right. Yet he is so pleasant to be with that every minute of every lesson is truly enjoyable. Every time I leave I am ready to practice and can't wait to return.

My approach to teaching voice is grounded in the breath, body awareness, and psychological well being. One must be continuously mastering the air as the body may feel different from day to day or week to week. Progress is never linear, and sometimes it is easy for a student to feel down if they expect more of themselves or because of something personal. The journey in an instrument, as personal as the voice, is never easy. Therefore, I encourage positive self-talk in and outside of lessons. I will always ask students how the exercises feel, but also what they're thinking about when executing them. In addition, I listen for any physical tensions a student may display. My goal in teaching is to help the student rid the body and throat of any extra tension, so they can produce the freest and healthiest sounds possible. I consider my job well-done, if a student no longer needs me regularly and can become their own teacher. For younger students, a big part of my curriculum is reading music

Laura
I worked with Jessica for roughly two years. During that time we worked on different vocal techniques and explored many different music styles such as classical and Broadway. Jessica helped me find confidence in myself and my voice. Because of my work with Jessica, I auditioned for and earned a spot in an audition-only choir, something I never could have done without everything I learned from Jessica.

In addition to singing techniques, I learned important things about the voice and how to keep it healthy.

Jessica is an exceptional voice teacher and I learned so much from her.
Cheryl
My 12 year old daughter was thrilled to resume voice lessons with Miss Jessica using Zoom. My daughter started with Jessica at the age of 10. Jessica is a gifted singer and teacher. Singing is one of my autistic daughter’s strengths and I feel so fortunate to have Jessica helping her develop her vocal talents. I highly recommend Jessica.
Erin
Jessica is awesome! I've been taking lessons with her for a few months now. She's super nice, and is great at teaching how to improve all aspects of my singing. Highly recommend taking lessons from her!

I teach students of all levels. Whatever experience you have, we will work with. I believe that it is important to learn how to play by ear as well as read written music. Understanding both approaches, you will be able to play almost any kind of music in a solo as well as a group setting. Depending on your experience, I can find suitable projects that will help you to develop your skills.

In just my third lesson, she taught me proper vocal placement techniques I haven’t known before which instantly transformed the way I sounded & took the stress off my throat which I thought I needed to be a better singer.

"Michele took the time to get to know my personal connection to singing and music, so she knew just where to start with me as her student. I appreciated her explanation of vocal anatomy because that type of knowledge helps me figure out how connect with and work with my body, and I also never knew how nice it feels to have someone listen to and hear all the unique qualities of my voice while speaking. I felt like she could "see" my voice, which made me feel a bit exposed, but also trust her to help me overcome vocal challenges and weaknesses in future lessons."
