Jeanne began studying voice in 1998 as a teenager and went on to graduate with a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from George Mason University in 2007. As a young singer, she was very shy and quiet and it took several years of hard work learning to overcome performance anxiety and tension, as well as developing breath control and a beautiful clear tone. Because Jeanne did not have as much “natural talent” as her fellow students at school and worked hard to excel, she loves helping other students who struggle with some of the same issues. She strongly believes that anyone who has the desire can learn to sing beautifully. 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. Her all-time favorite role has been Mabel in Pirates of Penzance. 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. For younger students, Jeanne focuses on pitch matching, breathing, producing a beautiful tone, and learning basic elements of music through fun activities. She also offers regular group lessons for younger singers at no extra charge for those who can make the meeting time. For singers in their teenage years and up, Jeanne teaches breath control, alleviating tension, singing with a relaxed and open throat, beautiful tone, and learning a variety of repertoire. Throughout the years, Jeanne has never stopped her own vocal training. After finishing her degree and moving to Utah, she has 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.
