As a voice teacher, my intention is to guide my students in understanding all aspects of their musicianship – as a singer, student, and artist. My teaching rests upon a foundation of pedagogy that employs not only traditional techniques of bel canto singing, but also a scientific understanding of the voice as part of the human anatomy. In order to teach these concepts effectively, lessons are structured based on the personality and needs of each individual student. With extensive background in the study of interpersonal communication, my priority lies in creating a learning space where the student is able to explore and create music in the most comfortable and effective manner.
Throughout the series of lessons, I hope to establish and monitor the student’s technique, in order to ensure healthy and efficient production of the voice. Further, I aim to influence the student’s growth as they navigate the world of being a musician in the 21st century by helping them understand their strengths, desires, and long-term goals.

Jennifer is an amazing voice teacher! I have been a lifelong choral singer but had not taken individual lessons prior to working with Jennifer. Within just a few lessons I noticed a difference in my singing. She is so good at quickly identifying areas to improve and offering guidance with my technique, and leaves me with well thought out exercises at the end of each lesson to help reinforce what we learned. Not to mention the super fun repertoire! She is an incredible singer herself and an excellent teacher. Would recommend to anyone, new or previously trained!

Jennifer is such an amazing and thorough voice teacher. She is extremely knowledgeable about technique and will tailor her lessons to best fit you or your child. I have loved taking lessons with her and she helped me open up so much in terms of confidence and just helping me open up vocally. Highly recommend!!!
