My job with vocal training has always been about finding your voice. Not Beyonce, not Carrie Underwood, not Kristin Chenoweth or Blake Shelton, but you. Your voice. That's what being in a lesson with me is all about. Finding your voice and your sound and embracing the amazing vocalist that you are.

About Jessie H.

I am a professional singer and vocal coach with over 15 years of experience. In the last 15 years, I’ve professionally sang behind legendary singers from various genres of music such as Natalie Cole, Dave Brubeck, Wynton Marsalis, Patti LaBelle, and many more. I’ve been a featured artist and singer in many countries such as Prague Czech Republic, the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, Ghana, South Africa and all across the United States.
I opened my studio in 2006 and trained students of all ages, all genres and all levels of singers. I love teaching voice. I graduated from Morgan State University with a bachelor’s degree in Vocal Music. One of my greatest joys has always been to witness the development and creative journey every singer takes when finding their voice. As I have over 30 years later, my sessions with students dive into the very depths of who individuals are and what they want to message they want to share with their voice. Not only do I possess the technical skills to help develop singers so they can preserve and maintain their vocal abilities, but I also have the personable skills to help singers find their voice and reach higher heights they never thought they could have on their own. I enjoy training students in Classical, Musical Theater, Pop, R&B, Gospel and Jazz music.
Students in my studio have gone on to audition for scholarships, roles in shows, talent shows, and talent agencies. They have also gone to record their own music and EPs. If you are serious about developing your sound and finding your voice, you’ve found a coach who will help you get there.
