Great Singing Teacher

Rebecca has helped me reach my goal of becoming a more accomplished choir member. I sing alto and before I took lessons with her, it was very difficult for me to stay on my part. She also helped me to breathe correctly and sing without straining my voice. I have learned SO MUCH from her, from how to warm up to how to project my voice so it can be heard. I am much more confident about my voice. She is a great teacher.

Working with kids requires the ability to use analogies and really understand the child that you are working with. Our experience with Adam has convinced me that he posses those qualities. He is also punctual and consistent. As the guy footing the bill, I appreciate.
We plan on continuing our relationship with Adam.

Marjorie is a brilliant teacher who will put you at ease within the first five minutes of being in her studio. She will give you the technical tools to create the best sound and then help you develop your own artistry. I highly recommend her to any voice student of any level!

I have had the privilege of working with Marjorie for the past 14 years. I began taking lessons with her while still in middle school and I have continued to grow as a performer through years of her expertise and hands-on approach. She has trained me in multiple styles including broadway, opera, pop and jazz. Her willingness to go the extra mile and build a student's confidence and stage presence has enabled me to tackle any audition with a sense of pride in my abilities.

Marjorie has coached me through more than 50 auditions including conservatory program auditions. She has given me the gift of multiple recitals that allowed me to put her teachings to use. I can proudly say that I am confident not only in my singing ability, but also in my ability to "act the role". By that I mean, adding a character to every musical piece I perform, enabling me to be that much more successful in my performances. She has challenged me to leave my comfort zone and hand over control and I have been more than successful every time I put my complete faith in her.

To me Marjorie is the epitiome of voice teachers. I can not recommend her highly enough. Whether you are trying to make a career out of performance or if you are simply looking for a hobby, Marjorie is by far the best out there. Please give yourself the gift of voice lessons with Marjorie.

Before Marjorie, I didn’t know I could sing. Her patient guidance and enthusiasm have helped me find my voice. Her loving and playful teaching style creates a safe and warm environment for learning, exploring, making mistakes, making beautiful sound, and having great fun. With her support I feel more confident in myself. She is truly a wonderful and inspiring teacher.
Jameson J. Austin, TX

About Jameson

If you are a seasoned performer, I will guide you in developing agility, musicality, range, dynamics, and phrase shape. If you are a first-time vocal student, I will provide an engaging, supportive environment to find your voice. My instruction is based on professionalism, experience and range from more than 25 years of singing and 13 years of teaching. I have advanced education in vocal performance and am an AmSAT certified teacher of the Alexander Technique, which allow me to integrate the intellectual and physical aspects of singing. I use my energy, attentiveness and creativity to tailor lessons towards each student's unique needs. I base my vocal technique on the Italianate tradition of operatic "bel canto," but also incorporate broad experience in musical theater, jazz, and ...

Jameson has been patient with me in the few lessons I've had with him so far.
He's very knowledgeable and understanding, so I felt no need to be ashamed when I make mistakes or sometimes sound funny. It helps that he's friendly and approachable.

The lessons are purposeful and insightful. I like how he allows me to ask questions and he helps me understand mechanics that I've never learned before.

I've sung in a few church choirs for many years on and off without any vocal training. I've only ever sung for just the love of singing, so I've collected some bad habits that were never addressed until now. It didn't take long for him to develop a gameplan for me and figure out how he's gonna get me right on track.

Today he helped me "find my voice". It was a Eureka moment of sorts I won't soon forget. There's still work to be done, but surely I will
continue with my lessons with him because I'd like to see where he can help me take my voice.

Definitely top-notch instruction from a pro here, so for me, it's money well-spent.

Jameson's knowledge and instruction go well beyond the physical mechanics of singing. His lessons bring you to the mental approach to singing and performing. He somehow makes the abstract tangible, at least in so far as it can be applied in a real way. Lastly, I don't think I ever had a lesson where we did not share some laughter.

I worked with Jameson for a year and a half, and it transformed singing from a source of self-doubt into something I do with confidence and joy. The Alexander technique works wonders for really being able to understand how to use every part of your body to find the best sound. Lessons were always comfortable, fun, and exciting as I learned new ways to feel comfortable throughout my entire range. I seriously envy his Texan students!
