Hi! My name is Jaki, and I have spent my life pursing the arts. My music has been Top 10 on the Billboard Dance Charts twice, my songs have been streamed over 9 million times, and they've been featured in films and TV, including MTV's "Are You The One?" and Bella Thorne's 2020 #1 film "Infamous". I was first introduced to piano and voice at the age of 10 and quickly developed a passion for music, studying everything from classical to pop/contemporary and more.

With more than eight years of professional teaching experience, I feel that my formal training and studies in styles ranging from Classical to Pop have not only assisted with my ability as a Music Teacher and Educator, but have also helped me to attain writing and production work for and with top dance and pop artists.

After only a couple lessons with Jaki I have already learned so much! She offers challenging and helpful exercises and encouraging feedback. She is clearly experienced and very knowledgeable in music. Highly recommend! :)

After one 30 minute Lesson Jaki was quickly able to hear and figure out where my singing needed the most improvement and sent me exercises that immediately improved my singing. After 5 sessions she has been helping build my singing chops in a very productive and helpful way. Highly recommend her for anybody that is either a beginner, advanced or anywhere in between

best out of .. the only teacher I have had for singing. But in honesty. I was very pleased. With her quick understanding and her obvious skills she instantly pinned mistakes I am prone to make. I have homework. I am back in school.

Jaki is absolutely AMAZING. Our daughter smiles from ear to ear after class. She is fun to work with and, most importantly, REALLY knows her stuff. Highly recommend.

Jaki is a very kind, encouraging, and patient teacher! She is great at helping me work through challenging pieces, as well as building my music theory knowledge, and I have learned and improved so much in the time I have been taking lessons from her. :)

I've worked with Jaki for more than five years, we have worked on vocal and piano training. She's a professional that is an amazing musician with amazing insight. Whether it's live vocal performance, musical recording, or music theory she has always instructed me well and I improve every year. When I first started, music was just a hobby, but Jaki helped me get to a point where I feel comfortable pursuing musical performance and entertainment as a career. The more you work with her, and the more familiar she is with you, your voice, and your musical knowledge, the better each session will be. If you go into each lesson prepared and with a good attitude as you should, she can help guide you to whatever aspiration you have for yourself musically.

My daughter was asking to quit piano 30 minutes before her first lesson with Jaki. I jumped on a call with her, and she immediately knew what was going wrong, figured out a plan, and she had personalized sheet music for my daughter (her favorite song) ready to go before we even started! By the end of class, she was SO excited to keep learning. Jaki is a FANTASTIC teacher who clearly loves the kids and loves teaching. You can't go wrong!

I got a job working the front desk of the music school I attended from a young age, and one day a teacher didn't show up for class, so my boss, having seen me perform many times, asked me to teach the lesson! I quickly fell in love with teaching and have been doing it ever since. The school closed in 2016.
