Singing lessons (for ages 8 years to adults) are tailored to student's individual needs/goals with an emphasis on building technique and performance skills.
Jackie will work together with students to prioritize student's goals, identify student strengths and target areas that need to be worked on. She will then guide students to become more skilled and confident performers through encouraging good vocal technique, providing pitch and harmony exercises and working on performance songs. Jackie also has experience working with children/students with ASD and disabilities and is happy to adapt lessons to suit all abilities.
Jackie prefers to travel to students homes to teach so please inquire as to available time slots for your area.
