Ms. D was extremely patient and thorough with me. And her warm demeanor helped me calm my nerves and loosen up. I appreciate all the valuable insight and direction she gave me.

I had such an amazing experience training with Detrece! She always has such sweet positive energy. I was so happy that with me being more of an advanced singer she was able to teach me about my voice and tips that I never knew! I only had 5 lessons and still had a vocal breakthrough where she helped me realize my range is wider than I thought. She gave me more confidence and is always seeking to share opportunities with me. I’m so grateful to her!!

I have a passion for theatre & hopefully you do too! I will help my students become strong in improv, monologue & scene work. A packet will be given each week on things to work on & improve along with an assignment. I will require my students to learn a monologue a week excluding other assignments I give because building your repertoire is crucial in this career.

As your coach, we will patiently and persistently discover the methods that enable your absolute best work. From Linklater voice work, to Mask exercises, to silly vocal exercises, we will develop a system that works for you. Best of all: we'll have a blast doing it.

A truly gifted instructor. I came to Jennie with zero acting experience. She was able to patiently and carefully guide me to focus on my scene and most importantly how to RELAX and let the scene flow. Her knowledge of acting techniques and tips is unparalleled. She teaches you how to look at the scene as a whole and truly understand what your character is feeling. I highly recommend Jennie to anyone who is interested in learning more about acting.

Jordan M.

Speaking well all starts with proper breath coordination. As a voice major I understand the inner workings of how the voice works, and the proper way in which to speak without strain. Often people speak on a "vocal fry" this is the gargly sound that is very low in the speaking register, not only is this bad for your voice it also doesn't make a good impression to employers or during an interview process or public speaking event. I encourage even my voice students to recognize that habit and break it in order for their singing voices to grow.

If you are interested in improving your public speaking skills, or feel strain when you speak for extended periods of time, it is worth considering taking vocal lessons because without this proper technique severe damage can occur to your voice.

About Jordan

Lesson Details/Services: Singing/Audition and Resume Coach: Lessons begin with stretching, vocal warm ups, scales, and extensive breath work, as well as resolving any tensions that may be hindering your vocal production. I then through collaboration with the student, work on beginning repert

Jordan is very experienced and knowledgeable, I watched as she worked with me. She has an amazing ear. she hears nuances of differences in the slightest tone difference and can tell just what to do to help you sound wonderful. Looking forward to going back.
Thanks Jordan

My daughter had a fantastic first lesson and is looking forward to the next!
Evelyn H.
My name is Evelyn and I'm 33 yo. I'm also transgender MTF and have always wanted to sing with my new voice. Jordan is incredibly patient and shows a lot of care for what I have tried to accomplish. Without her I would have been too afraid the let my singing voice be heard. I'm so lucky to have found a professional like her to help me find my singing voice during the journey of my transition. I highly recommend her to anyone who is new to singing or wants to improve their existing voice. She's worth every minute.

Ivan
My son started taking lessons with Fawn in June of 2018. Each lesson has been amazing as Fawn takes a lot of effort and spends time in teaching her the right techniques in order to have a strong foundation. I have witnessed my son's voice transform tremendously with the guidance and help of Fawn’s efforts and it has been such a blessing. Fawn also enforces the importance of learning the right way and practicing which has helped my son get into a good routine and gain immense confidence in himself. I would recommend Fawn as a vocal coach to all aspiring singers because she invests a lot of time, care and expertise into her students to ensure they learn, do well and are successful.
December
Fawn has a super personality and is easy to work with. She has a way of drawing out what needs to come to surface in order to succeed. She is one of a kind and we are lucky to have found her.
