About Shanita J.

Shanita teaches: Ages 7 and up
Teaching since: January 1999
Last sign in: Last week


I began singing at very young age and have never stopped : ) I began teaching music and voice while in college and have been doing so ever since! I'm classically-trained in voice and have a versatile sound and style. I help my students to find their voice and bring it out to the people who are waiting to hear it! We always have fun through learning. I incorporate the basic fundamentals of music theory into my classes as well. I believe it's important and fun!

Broad rhythmic and metric range
Song building

And did I mention Artist Development!!!! Yes, after about the 6th lesson you'll be ready for live performances with a newly improved way of approaching the song in you : )

Encouraging & supportive! She's the best instructor, even touching on music theory and performance. Taking singing lessons as an adult was daunting but she's really patient and easy to work with.

Shanita Jackson is fabulous singer with an exceptional range. She is a powerful solo act but also works beautifully with an ensemble. A consummate professional and a pleasure to work with, Shanita understands how to interact with her audience and shines in a diversity of vocal styles, from Jazz to Pop and Reggae.

My experience with Shanita was excellent. She is very professional and patient. I have been singing for years and still have some issues with effective breathing. She was not condescending, and though knowledge is vast, she as able to show me techniques in ways I could understand.
