"Jennifer offers  a loving environment that is holistic and supports the integration of body, mind and spirit  as part of her voice training.  My voice became richer and stronger and my self confidence and creativity also blossomed.

 

Jennifer is patient, yet encourages you to go beyond yourself and to really try for your heights. This is a rare quality, and she is a rare person.  It is a gift to be able to study singing with Jennifer."

XENIA S - AGE 50, TORONTO, ON

 

chilDren's Division

 

"In her beautifully appointed studio, Jennifer has created a calm and welcoming atmosphere in order to teach a music program that is both personalized and flexible.  Jennifer’s approach to music is one that fosters my daughter’s creativity and has given her greater confidence in expressing herself through singing. 

 

My daughter is learning breathing, voice techniques, song writing skills, and Jennifer is teaching her to accompany her singing and song writing process on guitar and piano.  She is a wonderful mentor for my young aspiring musician."

AW - PARENT, COQUITLAM, BC

professional Division

"Jennifer's extensive musical background and live performance experience shows throughout her teachings. 

Having been to a few different vocal teachers over the years, I have found that some put an emphasis solely on technique and tend to neglect other important factors like stage performance, song presentation, and the emotion behind the music itself. Jennifer coaches all of these, and more.

She brings out the best in me."

BARRY M - AGE 36, LANGLEY, BC

 

INTERMEDIATE / TEEN Division

 

"As a parent, I found Jennifer to be a great teacher and mentor for my daughter.  I could hear the progress in my daughter's voice week after week and how she became more confident with her vocal instrument.  I wholeheartedly recommend Jennifer as a teacher."

KULWINDER S - PARENT, PITT MEADOWS, BC

"Jennifer, you help me more and make me feel better than my feelings doctor." 

K - AGE 8, PORT COQUITLAM, BC

 

INTERMEDIATE / TEEN Division

 

"Working with Jennifer has helped me find my singing voice.  I used to be shy about my voice but her careful and encouraging teaching style has helped me gain confidence.  I love working with Jennifer.  Even if my career takes me across the world, I would want to fly her in.  I wouldn't trust anybody else with my voice."

NASIV - AGE 17, PITT MEADOWS, BC

 

CHILDREN'S Division

 

"I first brought my 7 year old daughter to Jennifer about 2 years ago. My daughter instantly loved her from the first session. She came to Jennifer with pretty severe vocal damage.  Jennifer has repaired it, and has increased her range by an entire octave.  

 

She goes beyond the call. Shows up to functions on her own where my daughter is singing to make things better and sort out any corrections that need to be made.  I constantly have people coming up to me telling me how lucky my daughter is, and how rare it is to have such a dedicated teacher."

DUSTIN M - PARENT, PORT COQUITLAM, BC

 

BEGINNER'S Division

 

"I would like to thank you, Jennifer, for all you have done for me. From not being able to sing a note to now being able to sing an entire song, and even write a song! Not only has your support been for singing, but it's built my confidence in my personal and social life.  I can't wait to take it to the next level. Thank you!"

YOU PUT YOUR HEART INTO YOUR MUSIC... 

 

And you've probably given a few goosebumps.  You know your stuff.  You ALSO know when you could have done better - that one note you wish you held longer & stronger, or that spontaneous vocal riff you ALMOST nailed.

THEY DIDN'T NOTICE, BUT YOU DID.

Being on stage can distract - sounds, sights, tech issues, lyrics, set lists - what to speak of our egos! THERE'S SO MUCH MULTI-TASKING IN PERFORMANCE!  When you FEEL your song to the max, your technique could suffer.  Or you might nail that vocal riff, but disconnect from your feeling in trying. Jennifer will increase your ability to ACHIEVE BOTH at the same time.

YOU KNOW YOU'RE A GOOD SINGER  

 

Aren't the BEST singers the ones you think of as ARTISTS, who MOVE you somehow?  What makes outstanding art?  The perfect combination of SKILL & FEELING.

IF YOU HAVE GREAT PITCH...

 

But the audience can't FEEL your emotion & inspiration, they're missing out on the BEST PART OF YOU.  

 

IF YOU SING WITH LOTS OF FEELING... 

 

But hit or can't hear your odd flat or sharp note, your performance is lacking.

 

You need to be CONNECTED to your emotions to express them, & you need beautiful technical skills to express those emotions ATTRACTIVELY.  It's time to learn & grow.

EXPRESSING EMOTIONS IN A HEALTHY WAY...

Is an art.  AND it takes practice.  You've heard how it's easier to learn languages as a child?  It's the same with learning to express emotions in a way that ENHANCES OUR LIVES & benefits others.  When this skill is practiced at a young age it becomes ingrained & can be drawn upon for a lifetime. 

ART IS THE LANGUAGE OF EMOTION

 

Music.  Drawing.  Movement.  Acting.  Writing.  The arts are how emotions are expressed in a tangible way & are enjoyed either by the artist alone, or shared with others.  As adults, we know all too well how UNEXPRESSED EMOTION CREATES TENSION.

 

INTROVERTS & EXTROVERTS react to this tension differently - children, like adults, may withdraw too deeply into a shell, or 'act out' & 'bounce off the walls'.  Both may resort to distraction & unhealthy habits.

It's a complex world.  Inside & out.

EMPOWER YOUR CHILD WITH A SAFE

... And watch them navigate beautifully.

INTROVERT OR EXTROVERT - ALL CHILDREN ARE CREATIVE

 

Imaging & playing make-believe - quietly with dolls & crayons, or loudly with crashes & squeals - all children are natural creatives.  ARTISTIC creativity requires REFLECTION & EXPRESSION so it suits BOTH introverts & extroverts.  The introverted child is naturally reflective.  The extroverted child is naturally expressive.  

 

WITH A LOVING APPROACH & BOUNTY OF CREATIVE & THERAPEUTIC TOOLS...

 

Jennifer easily reaches the hearts of children & carefully guides them in channelling their natures & feelings, bringing balance to their inner lives.  She helps them explore a variety of outlets - from movement & vocal expression, to art & musical instruments. 

 

Jennifer nurtures not only the development of creative skills, but the ability to process life's challenges into rewarding opportunities for artistic expression & personal growth...

You get goosebumps when they're in their 'zone' - not just because they're great, but because it makes them HAPPY.  When they're happy, you're happy. 

 

HAVE YOU NOTICED? 

 

There aren't many aging singers who can carry a note like they used to.  That's damage from misuse & it's avoidable.  JUST BECAUSE THEY'RE FAMOUS DOESN'T MEAN THEY'RE DOING IT RIGHT. 

NURTURING MUSICAL TALENT REQUIRES SKILL & CAUTION 

 

It's all too easy for young people to emulate singers in the media, but those techniques (& even personas) may be leading them astray.  It's important to learn early on which techniques are safe & which are not. 

YOUR CHILD'S VOICE MUST BE PROTECTED IF THEY ARE TO SHARE & ENJOY IT FOR A LIFETIME.

TECHNICAL SKILLS & ARTISTRY

 

WITH A LOVING APPROACH & A BOUNTY OF CREATIVE, THERAPEUTIC, & TRADITIONAL TOOLS Jennifer easily reaches the hearts of children. She expertly nurtures not only the technical development of the voice & musical understanding, but the ability to process life's challenges & experiences into rewarding opportunities for artistic expression & personal growth - an ability that will serve well in ALL areas of life & last a LIFETIME.

Jennifer also helps young artists access their INNER VOICE & is able to draw out their unique gifts to create CAPTIVATING TRUE-TO-SELF STAGE PERFORMANCE.

AS A PARENT YOU MAY HAVE DOUBTS ABOUT THE MUSIC INDUSTRY

Rightfully so!  You want your child to be happy and follow their passion, yet the music industry can seem a frightening place focused mainly on shallow externals. Jennifer's 1st priority is consistently instilling a sense of INTEGRITY & SELF-RESPECT when teaching young performers, helping them to DEFINE VALUES & AVOID THE PITFALLS OF EXCESSIVE VANITY.  

 

With 25 years as an entertainer in the music & performing arts industry, Jennifer guides budding performers to navigate industry waters with grace.  She maintains open & cooperative communications with parents & guardians to discover which sectors of the performing arts may best suit the needs of their child.
