Hello! I'm Jessie, and I'm a freelance singer and teacher in the Los Angeles area.
I received my M.M. in Voice from the College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) at the University of Cincinnati, and B.M. in Opera Performance from CSU Long Beach.
I have taught beginning to intermediate piano, and beginning to advanced voice for the past three years now, and I love it! Although I specialize in opera and classical vocal technique, I enjoy and teach a variety of genres of music, and encourage a healthy technique with minimal tension.
Currently I sing with the Los Angeles Master Chorale, and have also sung with the Chicago Symphony Chorus, Music of the Baroque, and Cincinnati Opera. Check out my website for more information about me at www.jessieshulman.com
I teach private lessons in the LA/San Fernando valley area, and am available to teach both piano and voice, no matter your experience level! My approach is to focus on healthy, easy singing and/or playing. Correct posture, breath, and technique are fundamentals of a healthy instrument. I also have experience with the Alexander Technique, and incorporate its many benefits into my teaching. I am comfortable teaching various styles; whether it's pop, rock, classical, or musical theater, I would love to help you achieve your singing and piano playing goals! Please feel free to contact me with any questions, and I will happily answer them!
