*Hi and welcome!!

My students like to call me Dr. Jeanne, so feel free to do the same! I have been in music all my life and I love helping my students no matter what level they may be.from beginning to advanced. My experience in music started on stage at age three and by the time I was 21 I was singing and dancing on national television in many variety tv shows after having won the tittle of Miss Memphis. I studied music at Stephens College in Columbia, MO and the University of California in music andI have since taught hundreds of voice and piano students everything I know about music and performance. Piano is a joy to teach, but my greatest love is teaching voice .I specialize in all styles of music as long as I feel it is musical, developmental and expressive.. Music takes time and discipline to master and I'm looking forward t
o meeting you and hearing all about your goals and dreams in music and how I can help you along your path.

About Carla C.

Profile_103665_pi_Smiling%20Profile
Grand Rapids, MI

View Full Profile

I have experience tutoring Filipinos and Koreans in developing English fluency and accent reduction. My own practice in learning accents for acting, then in real life practice while living abroad, has equipped me to help others develop their own skill.

About Carla
I have been signing since 1998, spending every chance I can among my Deaf friends and immersing myself in the language as often as possible. I received my BA in Music with a certification to teach at Lubbock Christian University in 1998. Later I attended the Interpreter Certification program at Burlington County College in New Jersey from 2009-2011, and during that time took a summer course at Gallaudet University for the Deaf in Washington DC. Then in 2014 I received my MEd in Curriculum and Instruction with Instructional Technology from Houston Baptist University. I have been teaching ASL at the high school level since 2011. I am also one of the interpreters for the Deaf at my church in Fort Bend County, TX, outside of Houston, where I am a member and actively involved in the Deaf Ministry.

Please feel free to ask me any questions y
ou have. I'm happy to get back with you, and I look forward to teaching you!

Working with Carla has been incredible! I had a minimal amount of ASL experience before starting lessons and Carla has helped me learn so much in such a short amount of time. She's wonderful at helping you to incorporate what she's teaching into conversations so you can practice using and understanding signs.

I was able to use my short 4 weeks of private lessons on a recent trip where I was able to have a lovely conversation with a member of the deaf community - thanks to Carla.

I look forward to continuing on and developing a much deeper understanding of ASL!

Christiansburg, VA

Find your English accent without losing your uniqueness! I help students acquire a clear and expressive American English accent. If typical approaches to English pronunciation don't work for you, I can help. My approach is physical as opposed to learning by hearing and imitating sounds. I have worked with seasoned professionals as well as newly arrived immigrants just beginning to learn English. My students often have a strong command of the language, but are concerned that they aren't being fully heard and understood. You will find a pleasant and supportive studio where I create an individualized plan tailored to your goals and needs. You already have a good voice--you can build on that and enhance your American English in your professional and social life.

About Jennifer
If conventional approaches to improving your speaking voice aren't working for you, I can help. A teacher since 1999, I draw on a wide range of experiences and techniques. I can work with you to create an easy, enjoyable plan.I've worked with children, high school/college students, professional actors, educators, broadcasters, singers, dancers, executives, students with special needs, senior citizens, immigrants, ESL students, and refugees. I employ Lessac, Berry, Linklater, and Skinner voice and body work in addition to my own teaching methods. I am based in the beautiful mountains of Southwestern Virginia. I'm happy to answer your questions and help you grow in vocal power, skill, and confidence!

Jennifer has been my consultant for any dialect or speech concern, that i come across in my acting. Due to her training, I was consistently cast throughout my college career, at Radford University School of Dance & Theatre. I now take lessons privately, in preparation for The Southeastern Theatre Conference in March.
