I feel Jennifer and I have a great connection , we get along fabulously. She is a tremendously talented musician and singer (obviously ). Her abilities as a pianist and singer is equally matched by her ability to professionally yet pragmatically teach,mentor, tutor and guide one in the art of operatic singing. We have established goals. She is the epitome of promptness. I always look forward to my lessons with Jennifer. It is an honor to be her student .

David, You rock. Such a talent. Thanks for the very expressive review. It's just like your musical spirit, colorful and engaging.
I've only taken one class so far, but it was a great experience. You can tell that she really cares and listens to the student to understand what they're interested in learning and singing. Overall, a few fun first day.May 14, 2018VerifiedJennifer Paterson's reply
Your beautiful, natural voice is a joy to hear very week!
Her years of experience and knowledge proves to be true just within the first session. She has a genuine love for singing and for teaching others no matter where they are at in their journey. I greatly appreciate her openness and excitement every time we get together.May 10, 2018VerifiedJennifer Paterson's reply

Thank you, John. It is fun to teach you.
Jennifer is absolutely amazing. She has influenced my daughter through music in such a positive way. My daughter has become incredibly passionate about music and looks forward to her weekly lesson. She’s taken huge leaps in her skills and has grown tremendously because of Jennifer.May 16, 2018Jennifer Paterson's reply
You have a great performance. It is a pleasure to teach you.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I offer a free first lesson so we can get acquainted and make sure we are a good match. There is no obligation to choose me as your teacher.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Each student is different. I design a program to suit the student.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?When Jennifer Paterson started lesson at the age of 6 she had no idea that the most interesting, inspiring and joyful people and experiences she would have in her life would be through those connections she has made through music. Jennifer feels fortunate to have degrees from The Royal Conservatory of Toronto, a Masters of Music from Boston University, and the University of British Columbia. She was the recipient of the Canada Council Award to study at the Royal Opera house in London (Covent Garden) and was the principal Soprano for the New England Chamber Opera. She has thrilled audiences with her exceptional performances of classical and popular music throughout the United States, Canada and Europe and has released several recordings. Jennifer has performed in almost every genre of music. Her leading roles include Maria in West Side Story and Carrie in Carousel among many others. She originated the role of Phoebe in the world premiere of Le Devin du Village by Rousseau with the Boston Early Music group, The Friends of Doctor Burney. Jennifer is one of the most distinguished teacher in the San Diego area and teaches piano and voice to students of all ages and all styles. Jennifer enjoys teaching student of all ages and many styles. The solid technique she works with, serves her students who perform in all genres of music. She works quickly and is very goal oriented with every student, whether they are studying music for the sheer fun of it, or if it is to perform in major venues throughout the world. She makes music fun!
