MY TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
I believe that freedom- freeing the body, the mind-is the key to freeing the voice and producing a healthy supported sound. My students learn to work hard to support the breath while at the same time opening up the chest, the throat, the “mask” through posture and focus exercises that allow the air to move freely, to “spin” and the vocal production to be full and vibrant without being pushed or forced. I also firmly believe that kindness and humor, mixed with directness, are the most effective teaching tools towards producing a relaxed, confident, vocally flexible and open-minded artist.
“Jacqueline has been my voice teacher and mentor for over three years. Without fail, she tailors her lessons to the individual student and strikes a wonderful balance between constructive criticism and reaffirmation. Her guidance has helped me to better trust my inherent strengths as a musician, work through performance anxiety, and sing with greater freedom and relaxation. Jacqui’s good humor and vocal expertise would be an asset to any student.”
(Michele Kennedy, voice student)
“Jacqueline is an incredible teacher. I feel beyond fortunate to be her student. She is inspiring, warm, clear and generous, with a delightful sense of humor and unflinching honesty. She zeros in on exactly what can be improved upon. Nothing is forced. One gets out of one´s own way. The ease of proper “alignment” in all aspects of vocal production is sought after…and found! It is nothing short of miraculous! And she sings like an angel!”
(Barbara Dana, voice student)
“I wanted to say thank you – you probably already know this, but your teaching lives on in your students for years.” (Ellen Myers Kliman, voice student)
