My teaching approach is very student centered. I make a plan based on where the specific student is in their musical life as well as what they specifically want to learn. This is especially true when it comes to choosing repertoire. I believe that good technique can be used in any style or genre of music. I work with my students on building proper foundational singing technique so they may sing any genre with the best and healthiest production possible.
I am a singer, actor, arranger, and teacher based in NYC currently offering online voice and music theory lessons. I graduated from the University of Maryland in 2019 with a BM in Vocal Performance and a BME in Music Education. I taught elementary school general music for 5 months in Montgomery County, MD before starting my Masters degree program at NYU (which I am currently enrolled) for Vocal Performance with a concentration in Classical Voice. I have been teaching privately for 3 years and have had 9 students. I teach music theory, jazz voice, classical voice, musical theatre, pop, and more.
I have a contract with my cancellation policy and other policies that can be emailed at the time of the first lesson. My cancellation policy is that students may cancel (and reschedule if needed) up to 24 hours before the lesson with no fees. If lesson is canceled within 24 hours there is a $10 fee and if it is rescheduled within 24 hours there is a $5 fee. I charge $1 a minute, so you may choose any amount of time for lessons. I take PayPal, Venmo, CashApp, and Zelle as methods of payment.

One of the two most defining characteristics of Jenna’s teaching is caring and motivated. Jenna is sincerely invested in everyone of her students’ progress. She always pushed me and believed in my abilities especially when I doubted myself. Jenna is the type of teacher that will take endless time to help find you the perfect pieces to work on and she will do everything she can to make sure your skills are advancing. I know when Jenna teaches me that she has so much education/knowledge as well as the motivation to make me the best singer I can be.
Jenna instructed me over a 3 year period and is responsible for tremendous improvement within that time. She is diligent, adaptable and puts in extraordinary effort regardless of your musical experience. If you want to see results and have an enjoyable experience in the process then you have found your teacher!
