Information About Jenny - Twickenham teacher - (5 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Jenny:
I am based in West London.
I trained at the Royal Northern College of Music and Trinity College of Music London where I gained a post graduate diploma with Distinction. After further study in voice at the Central School of Speech & Drama in London I began teaching individuals privately in London. I work with singing and the spoken voice, and continue to work on my own vocal development as a performer.
OBOE: I love the oboe and have played for many years gaining experience in good amateur orchestras and chamber groups. I was awarded a Distinction in my Grade 8 and love sharing my passion for this beautiful instrument with others.
I have experience of teaching most voice types, and specialize in the fundamentals of good vocal technique.
Good physical technique and real connection with the meaning of the song and how to express it are at the heart of my teaching.Tuition is always tailored to the individual: finding a balance between effort and release to maximize vocal freedom and enjoyment.

I highly recommend her if you need help to improve your pronunciation and accent.
See you on Wednesday
During this time Jenny has developed a course of tuition and related exercises which I feel has been very much geared to my individual needs, combining all the benefits of different approaches including the Qi Gong system, grounding and breathing exercises, and actual voice work.
I really appreciate Jenny’s personal teaching style which to me is a very effective combination of sympathetic and patient, yet no-nonsense. I’ve also found her to be extremely knowledgeable both practically and theoretically: for example when working in-depth on the Qi Gong exercises she has been immediately able to observe the small physical changes I need to make to improve continuously and I’ve seen positive results, some unexpected including sleeping better. I’ve also learnt so much about the theory of breathing and the changes I can make to do it more effectively. We recently began work on a specific presentation and again I’ve feel I’ve very much benefited from Jenny’s individual attention to make real improvements to the quality of content and delivery. In addition she has always taken the time to email follow-up notes as memory joggers after sessions.
As someone fast-approaching the age of 50, bad posture, poor breathing and voice habits had crept in and taken hold over my life-time: Jenny’s teaching and support have really helped me to recognise and start to replace these with much more positive and productive routines. I've really enjoyed my coaching sessions which seem to fly by and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jenny as a tutor to anyone looking for help in these areas.
