Introduction: Detailed information on services I provide! Basic Lesson Rundown: Lessons begin with stretching, vocal warm ups, scales, and extensive breath work, as well as resolving any tensions that may be hindering your vocal production. I then through collaboration with the student, work on beginning repertoire that is suited for the voice, and challenging at the same time. I ask my students to record all lessons, so that one has the opportunity to review the warm ups, and hear the improvement in the voice, I also write a review of every lesson, with notated warm-ups and a list of "To Do's" for the week so that the student will have a structured practice week. I provide music, and if needed recordings of the pieces so that the student can take the materials back to their homes and practice them on their own. I have over 15 vocal exercises that I have recorded that I provide for the student after the first introductory lesson. In that first email I will send detailed practice info on which exercises to practice, and a vocal hygiene handout on how to best take care of your voice. I track the range of the voice, and usually within a month it will have improved by at least 4 notes either higher or lower. It is important to note that learning voice is a highly individualized journey, each person will have their own set of strengths and weaknesses, as a teacher it is my job to asses this in a person and craft a curriculum, and style that will fit those individual needs. There is no feeling in the world than the freedom and beauty of singing, it is a joy to hear in my students, and very fulfilling to teach this kind of wonderfully positive experience to people of all ages! Singing/Auditioning and Resume Coaching: I am adept at navigating local opportunities for students in the Seattle Theater world. I have had students perform at 5th avenue and Village Theater, receive broadway auditions, participate in “Rising Star”at 5th Avenue, perform for Seattle Childrens Theater, Young Actors Institute, Driftwood Players, perform at McCaw Hall, receive leads at their school musicals, win multiple pageants, as well as acting opportunities in movies and modeling. I have also had students prepare for international and national tours as solo artists. I have also helped a number of my students successfully audition and get into local choirs, and choruses (some even with Seattle Opera, and Tacoma Opera). I can help with this process by preparing you for sight singing, repertoire choices for the audition itself and any language pronunciation issues. I sing for video game recordings in choirs, I am a paid section leader for my church choir and I was a member of The Seattle Girls Choir. I also direct a children's choir at St. Mark Parish for church service every Friday morning. These experiences really help me coach my students on how to best get a spot in any choir you may have interest in. I am an active performer and had to navigate through the college system as well as the Seattle theater system and can provide much guidance to those interested with resume, repertoire and audition coaching. Theory/Song Writing techniques: For some students learning music is just as much a part of the lesson as learning to sing. I love teaching people of all ages how to read music, so that the student can be an independent teacher for themselves and learn music on their own at home, this I think is very important in order to improve skills for singing. The faster the student can learn music, the more time can be spent working on technique and improving the sound of the voice. I graduated from a prestigious Conservatory and had to take very advanced theory classes in order to receive my degree. I also played flute and oboe in orchestra for 10 years, and taught myself how to play piano. I have assisted some of my students interested in writing their own music on chord progressions, and have offered my musical expertise on their compositions. There is nothing like being involved in the creative process of composing and I love supporting my students that decide to explore this art form. Speaking Lessons: I have a studio in north Seattle where I work closely with the transgender community as a vocal coach to feminize my clients voices transitioning from male to female. It is a wonderful process and anyone interested please do contact me! I teach language diction classes. I am fluent in IPA (international phonetics alphabet) in English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish (all of which I have formally studied at a collegiate level and performed in professionally). I can help with accent reduction in English or pronunciation in any of the above languages. Mission Statement: I am devoted to healthy singing, and unlocking your true timbre and voice with extensive breath, and vowel work. You will get the opportunity to work on music you feel passionate about, and perform it for other members of the studio. I can also help in guiding students along the right path of pursuing this art form at a collegiate level. One of the most rewarding aspects of being a voice teacher is taking a student who feels anxious about singing, and giving them tools and confidence to perform in front of others! I had a student who had misgivings about singing in front of people but wanted to try lessons out because he enjoyed singing for himself. He at first had problems matching pitch and singing in front of people. After about 8 months he had the confidence to join a karaoke meet up and sing in front of people for the first time. It was a very proud moment for me as a teacher! A Little About Me: I received my B.A. in vocal performance from San Francisco Conservatory of Music in 2009. I am a classically trained singer, however I enjoy all genre’s of music and firmly believe having a classical base in a singing technique will enrich any style of music you wish to work toward. I am devoted to healthy singing, and unlocking your true timbre and voice with extensive breath, and vowel work. As a graduate from a highly competitive music institution I can help in guiding students along the right path of pursuing music at a collegiate level.

Singing Lessons

I went through a few voice teachers before Jordan she’s the one I wound up sticking with. I’ve been taking lessons with her for a couple years and definitely improved my singing.

Singing Lessons (for adults)

Jordan is friendly, professional, and supportive. She uses music that I'm passionate about in order to teach the skills and fine tune technique. If you are thinking about singing for the first time or hoping to expand your present skills, Jordan is the right teacher for you!

I highly recommend working with Jordan if you want to improve your singing! No matter what level you're at, her coaching can help take you to the next level. Jordan is great at meeting her students wherever they are in terms of skill and focusing on the fundamentals that will unlock their voices. A lot of voice instructors don't emphasize the important role that proper technique plays in singing, so Jordan's structured approach is really beneficial. Her teaching not only made me a better singer but also helped me become a more inspired musician.

I’ve been receiving singing lessons from Jordan for about a year. I have little to no experience with vocal lessons before meeting Jordan. Thanks to Jordan I have been hearing a significant difference in my singing voice over the year. Jordan has been great at identifying the strengths and weaknesses of my voice and has the expertise and knowledge to continuously challenge myself to the next level and has a very keen ear. She is also very flexible and understanding, and is willing to work with your current situations !

FAQs

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I usually start the first lesson off by doing a short interview. I ask about goals, music you may be passionate about, and what it is you're looking for technically for your voice i.e. improvement of range, strength, ease, etc. After this short interview we begin some warm-ups and I asses what I think could be encumbering your voice, and long terms goals on what we can work on. It really is a process and I tend to mold the lessons based on the individual, and what their needs are.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a bachelors in vocal performance from one of the top Conservatories in the world for singing. I have a vast knowledge of performing and figuring out my own voice which I can pass onto my students. Continuing my education I go to teaching lectures, talk with my colleagues who are also teachers as well as attend classes in the Seattle area for various styles and techniques concerning music and singing.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I have worked with total beginners and more advanced full time performing singers. I am open to any one who wants to improve their voice and enjoy teaching everyone equally!
