Overview

I have always had a passion for musical theatre and vocal performance. I belted my way to Los Angeles and attended the University of Southern California, Thornton School of Music, where I received a B.M. in Vocal Performance.

Upon completing my Bachelor’s degree, I received an M.M. in Musical Theatre from the Boston Conservatory. ​When I wasn’t enjoying some wicked good clam chowdah, I could be found onstage as a concert soloist with the Boston Pops conducted by Keith Lockhart or belting the national anthem at Fenway Park.

Wanting to combine my joy for traveling with my love for performance, I also studied acting at the British American Drama Academy in Oxford, England, musical theatre at NYU’s CAP 21, and opera at OperaWorks in California. I have performed in New York at Birdland and the Laurie Beechman Theatre, and in New Hampshire with the Great Waters Music Festival and New Hampshire Dance Institute.

Fueling my wanderlust, I traveled the world in the International Tour of CATS. I have also performed in many regional theatres throughout the country. Some of my favorite credits include: The Marvelous Wonderettes, Light in the Piazza, Guys and Dolls, The Golden Apple, and The Full Monty.

I've been teaching private lessons since 2006 and have loved helping my students expand their vocal range, increase their repertoire, gain solid technique, and just enjoy singing. Each lesson will begin with a vocal warm-up focusing on breath, posture, and technique. We will then work on your music together. I want to know what type and styles of music you like and am happy to help provide you with new material ideas. My background is primarily in musical theatre/Broadway which embraces all styles of music including classical, jazz, pop, rock, and country.

I can't wait to meet you!

I studied classical voice and have been looking for a teacher to teach me how to do more musical theatre style. Jennifer was wonderful. She was knowledgeable and gave very clear instruction. I walked away feeling confident about a new vocal style. Highly recommend her.

"Jennifer Bennet is the true definition of a coach. She embraces her students true individuality, she helps pull something out of you that you may not have realized you have. When working with Jennifer she makes sure that her students succeed, and even in the moments of when you feel you are failing she is there to get you through to encourage you to be yourself and to let your strengths and weakness help drive your storytelling within your songs/ and or performance."

She has helped me immensely and been a great vocal coach! I've learned more from her in the past few weeks than I have in a long time and I intend to take what she has taught me with me wherever I go.

There are no words to describe Jennifer Bennett. She is a phenomenal woman who takes teaching way beyond the classroom. Jen is interested in every person's individual progress and to her you can tell that teaching is more than just a job. She forms close bonds with each of her students to ensure that she is providing them with the best attention possible. Not only is she an excellent teacher, but she is also an incredible performer. I have never heard or seen her do anything that wasn't beautiful. I consider myself lucky to have been able to study under her because she is certainly someone I aspire to be.
