August 2006

Having recently attained my MM: Vocal Pedagogy from ASU, I am now accepting new students at my home studio in Chandler!

With 16 years of experience as a singer and 8 years as a music educator, I am well-trained to safely teach all voices and most genres: including musical theatre, pop, rock, jazz, classical/opera, choral, and folk. Before moving to Chandler in 2016, I was a full-time musician in San Diego for 6 years, where I taught private voice & piano lessons, children’s group classes, and also ran summer camps and several choirs for adults & kids. I am committed to inspiring my students to explore and share their own love of music, regardless of age or prior musical experience.

For the past 8 years, I've been helping my students achieve their musical goals: get cast as lead & supporting roles in musical theatre (MT) shows, prepare choir & solo songs for upcoming concerts, gain entrance into college voice programs, learn how to "belt" properly without strain, or simply perfect their favorite karaoke songs!

I only work with students ages 12+ in my home studio because I believe that children under age 12 receive the most benefit by singing in a choir with their peers, rather than taking private lessons for their young, under-developed voices. Better instrument options for younger kids are piano, violin, or guitar, which require finger coordination and theory comprehension in order to sound good (singing just doesn't). I assign music theory homework to all my students, as being able to read music well is essential to becoming a well-rounded, independent musician (yes, singers are musicians, too!).

I also very much enjoy working with adults of all ages, and specialize in rehabilitating voices struggling from harmful vocal habits by finding & using their "resonant voice." I believe that a strong foundation in technique not only makes singing in any genre possible, but also ensures healthy singing habits for life!

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 Is A wonderful Teacher!

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!
