Janet teaches both with technique and with heart! My vocal range and tone have improved immensely with her classes. During the quarantine she has held classes over zoom, which to my surprise has worked out really well. I look forward to class every week! I highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve their vocals.Jun 4, 2020Verified
Janet is extremely professional and warm. Voice lessons can be very personal, and Janet achieves the balance between guidance and connecting with you as a person and a musician. I had been singing for about ten years when I worked with her, and was looking to improve on my technique, so finding a voice teacher who could teach adults with experience was imperative to me. I enjoyed my lessons with her and continue to use several of the warm-ups and vocal drills that I learned while working with her.Aug 10, 2017
Janet is a great teacher. I had no idea what to expect when I began lessons, she's worked with me to increase my range and my delivery, I'm impressed with her skill level and creativity.Mar 3, 2014Verified
I am taking lessons with Janet now and I love them. She is an excellent teacher. She really knows her stuff and conveys it with flexibility and fun. She does a great job at putting me at ease, I feel very comfortable with her. I highly recommend Janet.Oct 15, 2013Verified
Singing Lessons (for adults)
Janet is an excellent teacher. In just two months she taught me from being an absolute beginner in singing to being confident in singing and projecting my voice. Her attention to details and experience in teaching allowed me to make great progress after every lessonDec 19, 2016Verified
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I watch them sing, see what they are doing in their belly, ribcage, upper chest, posture, and face. Then I give a diagnosis: what is working well and what we would focus on. We work physically, bringing awareness to shift the problems. Then we return to the song or speaking to use what we learned. We go phrase by phrase slowly, then bring it up to speed.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I started private vocal training at 11 years old and continued through college. With 3 choirs in high school--show, women's, and classical--I went to regional and state choirs which were very competitive. I played major roles in musicals including a season stint at 18 with a fully pro theatre company. I grew up learning about teaching through my award-winning teacher mother. I integrate what I learned through Feldenkrais Method, a summer with Shakespeare & Company, private theatre vocal training, and many years of intense listening to hear where tensions are getting in the way of free singing while at the same time building the muscles to allow certain sounds.
- What types of customers have you worked with?People who want: advice on various types of singing careers. Who want to add range, stop "ripping" out their voice, feel good about singing in front of others, be able to be heard, or breathe more easily. 11-85 years old. Various styles--musical theatre, jazz, classical, pop, folk, spoken-voice. Experience with trans-women voice.
