Review by Christopher
My little girl was very comfortable with Jane and we are looking forward to future lessons
What a great first lesson. Jane accomplished so much in just half an hour, teaching my daughter warm ups and began work on proper technique. My daughter was very happy and comfortable with Jane.
Jane is great. My daughter loves her and it was the 1st lesson. She's so excited and I'm happy for her
Jane makes you feel comfortable about pursing your vocal range. She demonstrates the techniques and coaches you to reach your potential.
Jane is an excellent vocal instructor. I have two daughters ages 8 and 9 currently taking lessons with her. I myself am a singer and took lessons for years at Westminster Choir College. I am familiar with the typical approaches to vocal instruction and am very impressed with the novel techniques Jane employs when teaching, particularly children. Both of my daughters find Jane to be engaging, entertaining, and energetic. They always look forward to their time with her and typically think of their weekly lessons as one of the week’s highlights. Jane is very patient with my girls, taking the time to reinforce concepts and present the same information in alternate ways to ensure my girls understand and appreciate what is being taught. It is clear that Jane has a strong passion for teaching and singing, two essential components to being a top-tier vocal instructor. I highly recommend Jane to anyone seeking an instructor who possesses a diverse toolbox for teaching and is herself a very accomplished vocalist.+ Read More
My 12 year old daughter has been taking lessons with Jane following 3-4 years of singing in various choral groups, and the experience has been nothing short of fantastic. Jane has done a great job of teaching and/or locking down the fundamentals of singing - from breathing, to posture, to how to practice effectively - while also keeping the learning fun and making it feel like it is not work. My daughter has deepened her love of singing while learning a great deal at the same time. I can't recommend Jane enough!+ Read More
Outstanding Instructor - also very knowledgeable.
I have studied voice for over 17 years. Amongst my teachers there have been famous singers who have performed at the Metropolitan Opera House, La Scala and Covent Garden. and yet none of them compares to Jane. She has very accurately and promptly identified my problems and targeted them proficiently. She is very energetic, eloquent and enthusiastic. It is clear that Jane herself received excellent instruction and made the most of it. Jane communicates effectively, and more importantly, teaches from the heart. In a few lessons my choirmaster and others have noticed significant improvement in the quality of my singing.+ Read More
Jane worked with my 15 year old son for several months during a time when his voice was changing and complex. Jane is extremely professional, knowledgeable and makes singing fun! She helped prepare my son for a challenging vocal institute. Most importantly, she nurtured his love of music!+ Read More
