Janet is teaching private lessons
and vocal classes!
"My philosophy on teaching is that everyone has a natural voice and can improve his/her own vocal quality, tone, range, and style. Taking vocal lessons can also enhance one's self-confidence in singing as well as in other aspects of life."
Janet has a very holistic style of teaching which incorporates stretching, breathing, and visualizing exercises with vocal warm ups that build range, control, and tonal placement. This has shown to be the basis for vastly improved vocal technique. By developing good habits and abandoning old ones, she has helped her students make great progress.
She teaches lessons from her home studio or will come to your house. If you don't have a piano, that's not a problem. She will bring her own keyboard. The ages of her students range from 8 to 64 so all are welcome.
She also teaches classes at Palomar College in San Marcos. Currently she is teaching the Fundamentals of Vocal Skills class, a Popular Vocal Techniques class, and Spectrum Vocal Jazz Singers, as well as some private students in the applied music program. Many of her students are becoming followers. The Vocal Skills and Popular Vocal Techniques classes offer the student a chance to sing in front of his or her peers as they go through the learning process in a safe environment as well as developing good techniques, style, and a basic understanding of how the human voice works. The Spectrum Vocal Jazz Singers is a performing ensemble that meets twice a week and performs some of the greatest arrangements of the vocal jazz idiom. It is by audition only so if you're interested in joining, please contact her soon.
"I just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed your class and that I learned a great deal from you. I only wished that the class were longer. Thanks for your kindness and gentle nature during class."
Beth Guiterrez, a student
"I just love you and your class. Yours is my only class and it is well worth the cost and my long trip to Palomar College. I want you to know that I am truly learning so much from you. You are a delightful, excellent teacher and I am especially thrilled to be exploring jazz with you."
Pam McDonald, a student
"I loved having you as a teacher last year and hopefully I will be able to attend next semester."
Amber Howard, a student
"Your class is such a wonderful learning environment. You taught me so much about singing with emotion rather than just hitting the notes and worrying about technique."Contact Janet for rates and available times
