I love showing off my new and improved voice.

When I started with Jennifer my throat hurt and was sore when I sing.By my third lesson no pain ,soreness. I sing in the Times Square Church Choir ,now my voice is amazing, I can sing high notes and don't have to panic about my voice. Thank you Jennifer I am excited about this journey my voice and I am on with you and looking foward to the wonderful job you will be doing with my voice.

Great voice teacher, with an amazing voice and technique

I took voice lessons with Jen in high school and college, and always had a positive experience. I started when I was at LaGuardia High School, and the singing lessons weren't enough at school. Although I do mostly musical theater now, I had to study both opera and lyrical music in high school and college, and Jen was able to coach me on songs I needed to have ready for exams and juries. However, most of our sessions were singing lessons (not coaching). A great perk was that she gave me recordings of our lessons which I could listen to later with comments from her, and that I could practice along with. She has a massive voice, and taught me a lot of technical skills about projecting and sustaining my breath.

I've found that some teachers have been out of the loop of performing and singing professionally for so long, that they forget what it's like to be the student taking lessons. But Jen is still involved in the business, so she's familiar with what does and doesn't work in a lesson. She's also really nice, which is always a pleasure.

Plus, if you get lucky, her partner might be available to accompany the lesson at the end so you can sing it full-out to her, like a real audition, or jury.
