Jaime was a great introduction to classical music for my son. She’s knowledgeable about appropriate repertoire for children. My son is thirteen and absolutely enamored with classical music now!

Jaime is an accomplished singer and an awesome teacher! She is extremely knowledgeable about proper singing technique and vocal health. Jaime is also a versatile musician who is skilled in multiple genres, including opera and musical theater.

As a teacher, Jaime is super patient and caring. She wants all of her students to have fun making music and achieve their full potential. I would highly recommend her to students of all ages who want to improve their singing!

I only sang in HS choir/ musical theater shows but in the quarantine I wanted to come back to it. Jaime was recommended to me by a friend and it was great to have someone who understood that I wanted to better my singing as a hobby. Singing in the quarantine has gotten me through it and Jaime has been so helpful in getting me to sing in a healthier way. Thank you Jaime!

Jaime was kind but stern throughout my entire lesson. It was great knowing that I was learning from someone who has such a great accolades but is ALSO a good teacher. She would compliment me on good parts of the songs before providing (very!) helpful constructive criticism. She also introduced me to new repertoire that sat well in my voice but diversified my rep list. Couldn't say more great things! Weekly lessons are the highlight of my week:)
