Singing Lessons In Thornleigh, Hornsby Shire
Hi my name is Jess, and I have been singing and performing for over 10 years. My journey with vocal technique has and continues to be one of the greatest joys of my life. Through experiencing the transformation of my own voice, and witnessing it occur in others, I passionately believe that each person with the desire to sing has vocal gifts that can be found with the right technical foundations, self-belief and commitment to the process!
My vocal technique is influenced by a combination of contemporary 'Mix' voice technique and Bel Canto. The way I approach teaching is a combination of building a solid vocal technique which allows for the smooth transition between registers, along with teaching the student how to free the voice by focusing on sensation and resonance. Aside from technical skills, a major part of singing freely lies in surrendering the mind and trusting the mechanics of the voice. This is something I am continually learning and being challenged by as a performer and I am passionate about passing on what I have learned and assisting my students on this transformative journey!
I also work with students on developing authentic connection to the music and lyrics and finding their unique essence as singers.
Singing lessons for kids & teens
I have worked with kids lots as a children's entertainer, so I absolutely love teaching young people! I recommend 30 minutes for kids 11 and under. We work on the songs they love most to develop a sense of intonation (singing in tune), rhythm and self expression/confidence. I work gently with vocal technique, correcting any unhealthy habits and making sure that their voices are in alignment as they develop!
For ages 12 and up we will focus on vocal technique in more depth and regular practice will be encouraged with the exercises and songs they are working with. I can also provide guidance for HSC, eisteddfod and community theatre performances and encourage students to take up opportunities to perform at school and in the community.
Singing lessons for adults
With your goals and musical taste in mind, we will focus on developing a reliable vocal technique and work on a repertoire of your favourite songs. I would be delighted to help you learn to love and trust your voice so that you have the confidence to sing and perform in the ways that call to you. Adult beginners are welcome!
