· Singing · In studio Jean's passion for singing inspires me to become the best singer I can be. She is professional and easy to talk to. She creates a comfortable atmosphere and only wants her students to be the best they can be. She has helped me work towards my goals and is nothing but supportive. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a voice teacher.
