I have been a teacher in private practice for 22 years. I have a wide range of experience with singers of all styles and age groups with a variety of goals and skills. I have directed the youth praise & worship team and directed the kids choir Christmas musicals at my church. I have helped many of my students prepare for auditions, such as Muny Kids, school musical auditions, college music auditions, etc. Many of my students have gone on to study either music education or performance in college.
*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are fun, comfortable and laughter is encouraged. Since there is already a love of music from the student, I highly encourage that by allowing the student to select a song/songs that they would like to start with. I then begin to add song selections according to the level they are at. I believe in positive reinforcement, but do require practice time at home, as well as theory work at home. All will be reviewed at lessons. In 3-6 months you will have a very good understanding of how your voice works and how to apply good technique to a variety of styles of music.

Ms Jen is a real pro. She finds out what your goals are and is more than able and willing to help you achieve them. She is honest and direct but not overbearing in her advice and suggestions. She is as sincere about you getting to where you want to be as you are getting there. She provides a comfortable atmosphere. Voice is the most personal instrument you will ever develop and having someone comfortable to work with goes a long way.
Jen is an excellent teacher! i love her excitement for music and her students! I also love her ability to encourage me so well! Awesome woman!!!!
It has been such a wonderful experience. Audrey just loves her voice lessons. Ms. Jen has been so helpful finding auditions and she just has this way about her to get the best out of Audrey. I have to say out of all her after school activities... This is by far her favorite!!! We just love her. She is so kind and caring makes u feel like u have known her forever. After our first lesson.. we stayed and talked a few minutes. While we were leaving Audrey looked up and said that is what u call bonding. She is only 8.. can't say enough u will just have to find out for yourself.+ Read More
