About Jameson J.

If you are a seasoned performer, I will guide you in developing agility, musicality, range, dynamics, and phrase shape. If you are a first-time vocal student, I will provide an engaging, supportive environment to find your voice. My instruction is based on professionalism, experience and range from more than 25 years of singing and 13 years of teaching. I have advanced education in vocal performance and am an AmSAT certified teacher of the Alexander Technique, which allow me to integrate the intellectual and physical aspects of singing. I use my energy, attentiveness and creativity to tailor lessons towards each student's unique needs. I base my vocal technique on the Italianate tradition of operatic "bel canto," but also incorporate broad experience in musical theater, jazz, and early to contemporary classical music. * Breath control * Healthy vocal production "bel canto" * Fach transition * 20th Century music Roles performed: Rodolfo, La Boheme Canio, Pagliacci Count Almaviva, Barbiere di Siviglia Goro, Madama Butterfly Mr Splinters, The Tender Land Don Basilio, Marriage of Figaro Juror #3, Resurrection (Machover) The Cowboy, The Blue Hotel (Hulse) Credits include: * Aspen Opera Theater Center * Boston Lyric Opera * Rome Opera Festival * Austin Lyric Opera * Amato Opera * Dicapo Opera * Bronx Opera I have made demonstration tapes for new works (musical theater and opera) and know how to work a new piece into any voice. In addition, I have worked with the Alexander Technique for over 15 years and integrate its principles into my lessons. My approach is creative, energetic and disciplined. *** Lesson Details *** Every student is different and every lesson will be different depending on the needs of the individual, and the demands of the day. I use the principles of the Alexander Technique to open up the student's mind and body to new experiences. In general, lessons will start with a simple warm-up. Then scales and arpeggios to develop agility, musicality, range, dynamics, and phrase shape. Finally, the last part of the lesson I incorporate some of the new ideas that were communicated earlier into the student's repertoire. *** Studio Equipment *** Piano, Alexander Technique table, *** Travel Equipment *** NONE *** Specialties *** Teaches beginner through professional: Singing, Voice Opera, Musical Theater, Jazz, Alexander Technique.

I have had 2 voice lessons with Jameson, and I really like him and his approach. He has simple techniques that help me sing better: expand my range and vocal quality. I think in a short time I will have significant improvement.
