Fundamentally expand vocal range, ease, tone, expression, sense of yourself!
Fundamentally expand range, ease, tone, expression, sense of yourself. Many students come to me after unsatisfying experiences with other teachers. Particular stretches, movements, & positioning allow people to shift ingrained habits and build freedom. If one technique doesn't work for you, you'll have five more to succeed! After 4 decades of performing professionally, I absolutely love making it easier for others to find their voice. I've taught privately & workshops for over 2 decades. It is incredibly satisfying to watch people progress so quickly, and expand their sense of themselves so deeply! "The progress that I have seen in my voice since working with Janet is astonishing. I have seen other coaches and . . .usually was left with a hoarse voice. This is not your average vocal coach. Janet is all about technique and making sure you still have a voice in 30 years. Now, I can belt high notes effortlessly!" I'm a great vocal technique teacher for a variety of styles: pop, musical theater, folk, classical, country, French cabaret, various ethnic styles. Students mostly pick their own repertoire. Go to someone else for R & B, rock screaming, or opera. Songwriters, teens 13 +, adult beginners, and active performers all have found amazing growth with me--vocally and personally! Feel safe, supported, and grow fundamentally!
About Janet R.

I grew up talking and reading about excellent and innovative teaching techniques with my award-winning teacher mother and my university professors older sisters. Bel Canto, Feldenkrais, listening deeply internally when I had troubles as a pro, and having to figure out what to do when my students have had problems has shaped my techniques, which keep evolving. The pandemic taught me that I hear where tensions are even on-line! I cannot explain how. Since I still hear so deeply, so specifically, where students need to release and position, on-line teaching is a delightful, unexpected pleasure! If we can cut down on driving time, expense and pollution--still get a fantastic result--why not?! Humor, kindness, focus, and artistic devotion guide me to guide you to whatever level you are interested.

Janet is a fantastic and passionate teacher! I started taking vocal lessons from her about 3 years ago, before the pandemic, and I’m still sticking around - I just loved how I constantly saw improvements in my voice after each lesson! She helped me remove vocal strains, add needed support, develop correct singing postures, and much much more. Janet demonstrated exercises very well and helped me understand how singing works from different aspects - how it mechanically works and how different notes and vowels feel. What I loved about Janet’s lessons was how customized they were to each voice. She was able to identify my very specific weakness and suggest the most appropriate exercises on the spot each time she heard my voice. I would highly recommend you to take vocal lessons with Janet if you are like me, who love customized lessons and want to learn how to sing better while developing good vocal habits.

Janet is an incredible vocal coach! I have attended classes both in-person and online. In either format she has a great ear and can help you overcome trouble spots in songs, finding the right note, expanding your range, and advising on techniques that not only make you sing better but also sing longer without ever straining your voice! I'm amazed at my own improvement both in my range and emotion. Vocal lessons can be a vulnerable thing, but Janet has a great way of making you feel safe to be silly and try new things. It is worth every penny and you will not regret signing up!
