Lesson Details

Singing

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate

I am a high school choir director and have experience working with all voice types, ability levels and experience -- and I love every single one of them! One of my favorite aspects of teaching private lessons is that I get to find out and help shape my students' goals, whether it be recording their own music, auditioning for music programs/competitive music scholarships, or simply gaining confidence as a singer! The sky is the limit and it's important to me that I am helping each student in the unique ways that they need!

Teaching since:
2010

I am a pianist, singer, choral director and lover of many different genres of music from classical and jazz to musical theatre and indie/folk. I graduated from John Brown University in Siloam Springs, Arkansas with a Bachelor's of Music Education, emphasis in Piano.

If you are studying voice with me, I think you'll find that I am passionate about connecting each of my students to the own unique beauty of their voice and using that connection to bring about free singing, confidence and musicality by way of foundational singing technique. I also have extensive training in a cappella arranging/singing if you are interested in learning how to start/direct your own a cappella group.

My training in classical piano began when I was five year old and I've had some incredible instructors along the way who have enhanced my skills in contemporary keyboard, including beginning-intermediate jazz and jazz improvisation. I love to teach students to read sheet music and pursue classical/technical excellence, but also to learn how to play music using chord charts, by ear or all three, depending on your personal goals and preferences.

With a passion for music theory and improv techniques, I love to help students who are aspiring songwriters to develop that creative side, especially in combination with learning piano skills -- they pair very well together!

The most successful musicians I know are well-rounded and have developed solid foundations in technique so that they can perform well in many different styles and adapt quickly. This is such a necessary skill in today's technological world where we can share music from across the world with a click of a button! In my lessons, I love to help my students study a variety of genres.

Speaking of technology, I'd like to make a quick plug for my husband :) He is a fantastic videographer and primarily works for a film producer in the DFW area, but he also loves doing independent creative work on the side. He has experience creating quality music videos and would love to create content for any student interested in this!

I really look forward to meeting you and helping you become a confident, skilled musician!

Jenna was way more than I expected. She is knowledgeable and friendly. My son is 7 and tends to normally get off track but she was able to keep him engaged the whole time. My son ended his lesson and kept playing even after she left.

Jenna is so involved with teaching her students how to sing, she shows so much support and really works with students to make sure they’re confident in their own voice and they have the right technique.

Jenna is very gifted and instinctive music instructor. She is quick to adapt to the needs at hand. I was trained classically all the way through college, and wanted help in playing by ear. Jenna gave me incredible assistance in this area and opened up the world of improvisation to me! I have also watched her train high school singers to amazing skill levels in the acappella arena. Jenna is incredibly versatile, technology-savvy, and one of the most positive instructors I have ever met!
