With 10 years of experience teaching piano, Jennifer studied music pedagogy at the Boston Conservatory, and soon after realized that she wanted to teach her main passion — voice and songwriting. She has been singing and songwriting since she was 8 years old, and it is the beauty and unique expression of the voice that she wants to help cultivate, harness, and explore in others.
Jennifer is interested in helping new and experienced singers find an authentic, INTEGRATED relationship between their body, mind, heart, and words. The voice is a unique instrument– player and played-upon are one and the same. Your voice expresses both the emotional and physical parts of you, and can convey who you are and what you are connected to– right through your mouth! She will be using her many years of singing, songwriting, performing, and yoga experience to help her students.
