Overview

I recently moved to the Phoenix area, to attain my Masters of Music in Vocal Pedagogy & Performance at ASU, and As a full-time musician in San Diego for the past 6 years, I’ve played many different roles. I taught private voice and piano lessons to students of all ages, while offering regular studio recitals, so my students could practice performing for an audience. I ran several year-round children’s group classes, including: a singing class for ages 5-8, 2 singing/dancing Glee! Club classes for ages 9-12, and voice & piano classes for underprivileged elementary school children. I was Camp Director for 2 summer Glee! Camps, and 2 Music Adventures Camps. I have performed several lead roles in both opera and musical theater productions, and helped my students prepare for their upcoming auditions.

I am now offering private voice and piano lessons at my new house in Chandler! I work with beginning to advanced students ages 12+ for voice, and beginning to intermediate students ages 8+ for piano. I also love working with adults, and specialize in rehabilitating voices with long-term vocal damage. I believe that a strong foundation in classical technique not only makes singing in any genre possible, but also ensures healthy singing habits for life!

I love teaching most styles, including pop, musical theatre, jazz, folk, classical, and choral music. I assign music theory homework to all my students, as I have found that having the ability to read music well is essential to becoming a well-rounded artist and musician. I am committed to inspiring my students to explore and share their own love of music, regardless of age or experience.

· · Jill does a wonderful job with my 8 year old daughter. She has a bubbly personality, and is always encouraging my daughter. My daughter always enjoys her lessons, and has an upbeat personality when she leaves each lesson.

Jill has been a perfect teacher for me. She motivates me with her positive attitude. She works well with adults and helps me with my disability. She comes up with ideas to help me every week. She always has a smile, even when I mess up!

· · Learning piano late in life!

It has been such a pleasant experience to take lessons from Jill. She is very positive and easy to understand in her instruction. I am a beginner in piano, and I feel I have learned a lot after only 3 lessons. She would be a wonderful piano teacher, no matter what your age!
