Jeanne is a classical vocalist who teaches Voice as well as Suzuki Early Childhood Education. For her voice students, Jeanne offers both virtual and in-person lessons (during the COVID-19 Pandemic she has only been offering virtual voice lessons to protect her students). Jeanne’s voice students learn breath control, vocal technique, sight singing, performance practice, and reading music. She provides several practice tools for her voice students to access on her Google Classroom, and posts a weekly vocal tip video on YouTube. Voice students are also invited to participate in regular group lessons through Zoom where they perform solos in front of their peers as well as participate in a yearly live vocal recital. She teaches Suzuki Early Childhood Education classes at The Gifted Music School in Salt Lake City for children ages 0-3 and their parents. These classes use singing, nursery rhymes, movement, and high quality instruments to teach rhythm, tempo, pitch, language skills, counting, and social skills in a nurturing environment (Suzuki Early Childhood Education Classes have been postponed during the COVID-19 Pandemic). As for her background and training, Jeanne began studying voice in 1998 as a teenager. She then went on to graduate with a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from George Mason University in 2007. As a young singer, she dealt with performance anxiety and vocal tension, so she loves helping other students who struggle with some of the same issues. Jeanne especially loves teaching beginners. Throughout her vocal career, Jeanne has studied Classical, Opera, and Broadway music. She has performed in various musical, operatic, and theatrical productions over the years. Jeanne has never stopped her own vocal and music training. After finishing her degree and moving to Utah, she studied privately under Dr. Arden Hopkin during his tenure as head of vocal studies at Brigham Young University, and currently studies with faculty member of the University of Utah, Dr. Carol Ann Allred. Jeanne firmly believes that there is always more you can learn about singing. Recently Jeanne began studying the Suzuki Method of teaching and is certified in Every Child Can as well as Suzuki Early Childhood Education Stage 1. Jeanne has also recently completed Level 1 Kodaly Certification, which focuses on sight singing, ear training, music theory, and choral conducting. Teaching music is Jeanne’s “Happy Place” and she loves nurturing the next generation of musicians as she helps each student grow and develop in their own unique way.
