Student & Parent Testimonials

"Jamie's approachable and friendly personality is reflected in her teaching style—she is not afraid to have you try various unconventional techniques that turn out to be super effective and fun! In the year I've been taking lessons with her, my breath support, technique, and vocal range have all improved significantly—so much so that a high note that I found strenuous a year ago is now almost within my comfort range! She is very receptive to different styles of music, and her suggestions are always challenging, fun, and geared toward developing your voice.”

—MARIE, student

Jamie is a great teacher. She helped me with my role of Ariel in The Little Mermaid. She not only helped me with my singing, but she also helped with the staging and acting. Jamie cheered me on and made me feel better about my voice. She is an amazing teacher.

—ZORAYA, student

"Jamie is a fantastic voice teacher. She is extremely patient and encouraging with me as a beginner. I started with hardly any experience at all, and my singing has already improved significantly after only eight weeks of lessons. She helped me with song choice and vocal repertoire, but is also open to my suggestions. I can highly recommend her for anyone who has been thinking about voice lessons, but has not had the courage to start, even at an older age. Just give it a try!"

—LENA, student

"I took voice lessons from Jamie throughout the summer and I had a wonderful time. She was very kind, patient, and encouraging with me, which made studying with her a very positive experience. Her knowledge and experience gave me the opportunity to learn so much.  However, the best part was that she also made it fun! I would happily study with her in the future and would encourage others to do so as well.”

—ELIZABETH, student

"Jamie is a natural teacher of her craft! Her ability to quickly assess and adapt lessons to my daughters’ personalities and preferences of music, as well as her incredibly positive and encouraging demeanor, has made taking voice lessons a great learning experience for both of them. She is very dedicated to finding ways that work for each student to understand how to use their voice and find their breath, and even given the current circumstances of having lessons via FaceTime because of social distancing, the quality and level of expertise of her lessons have not faltered in the least. We are fans!”

—DAEON, parent

"Jamie is a phenomenal voice teacher.  I was very nervous about taking lessons, but she helped me feel relaxed and comfortable right away.  She is kind and encouraging, and she does an excellent job of explaining what she's teaching.  Singing felt like a mystery to me before my lessons, but Jamie helped me see that singing is a skill that can be taught, practiced, and learned.  I cannot recommend her enough!”

—ADELAIDE, Student

"Jamie is a wonderful teacher. She helped my daughter hit her high notes for her role as Ariel in The Little Mermaid. She helped her with the staging and the feeling of the song. In addition, Jamie helped my daughter with the National Anthem. She explained so much to her and helped her tweak stuff when she had bad allergies and had to sing. She gave her some amazing pointers on how to keep hitting the high notes. She is very kind, helpful, patient, and very knowledgeable. She helped her with performance techniques and audition preparations. I highly recommend Jamie."

—SACHEEN, parent

"After two years without a voice lesson, Jamie made me feel confident and comfortable from our very first lesson. I really didn't think I would ever sing again, but she was determined to change my mind And now I'm so excited to grow and get back to where I was before I stopped singing. With Jamie's guidance, support, and outstanding knowledge and teaching style, I am confident that I'll get there and beyond.”
