I have been teaching private voice lessons for over 10 years to students of all ages. I have a wide range of experience teaching classical, jazz and commercial voice styles. Some of my significant training in teaching voice includes a Bachelor's degree in Classical Voice from the University of Wyoming, and a Master of Music and Doctor of Arts in Jazz Voice from the University of Northern Colorado with a focus on Vocal Pedagogy. I am also trained in Level I of Somatic Voicework™ which is a Contemporary Commercial Voice training program run by Jeanie LoVetri, and attend regular teacher training workshops through this same SVW platform.
I strongly believe there is no one-size-fits-all approach to teaching and studying voice (no matter the style), and I am prepared and excited to help you achieve whatever personal vocal and musical goals you have, whether you are a music professional or a hobbyist. Our plan of study together can be directed at any of the following based on your goals and priorities:
Vocal function and technique
Aural skills/ear training
Style and performance
Music business consultation/getting the gig
"Jenna really took the time to make sure I had all the tools I needed to prepare me to sing in the professional world. She has a vast knowledge of vocal pedagogy in the jazz setting and has an approach to education that every artist should have. I felt genuinely prepared to start a career as a jazz vocalist after studying with her.”
- Lora Sherrodd, Downbeat award-winning jazz singer, UW alum and current Temple University jazz masters student
"Jenna doesn't have a stock template that she uses for her students - she molds her teaching style to fit the individual."
-Nick Nelsen, UNC composition alum and lead singer of the rock band Nelsen
"I looked for a voice coach for a long time before choosing Jenna. I listened to a number of local vocalists, but when I heard Jenna sing, I knew I had found what I was looking for. Jenna has a real jazz feel. Her delivery seems effortless, but is technically precise. She pays attention to detail. Her teaching style reflects this. She has helped me tremendously."
