her many years of traditional voice training, her rich performance background,
along with her spiritual studies, and inner work, Jennifer created a
method of teaching voice that she calls, "True Voice". This method is
all about opening and awakening one's true vocal expression. This work
blends traditional vocal techniques with spiritual grounding and awareness
to help the authentic voice to flow freely. Understanding that the voice
truly is an expression of the soul, emphasis is put on releasing limiting
beliefs that constrict the natural voice. Students are led through relaxation
exercises, as well as visualization and breathing techniques. Once grounded
and relaxed, Jennifer guides students through vocalizing exercises,
all with the intent of opening, expanding, and strengthening the voice.
Her students will work on singing songs that allow them to step more
fully into their power and courage in expressing their voice out to
others. Most of the songs she uses are from musical theatre, pop/jazz,
"I have had the honor
to work with Jennifer for a little over a month now. My voice has not
only blossomed and transformed completely, but she has helped me regain
the confidence that I need as a performer. She has the ability to make
you feel comfortable enough to open up emotionally and connect those
emotions to the voice. Signing up for voice lessons with Jennifer has
been one of the best decisions of my life."
