Teaching Highlights

-Billy T Award Winner for 2016 David Correos

Quote from David helping him prepare for the International Comedy Festival Show


"As a comedian I have no business of being a singer.
But Jennifer helped get my show to the next level by teaching me to sing with emotion and energy.
She was very accommodating as a teacher and never made me feel self conscious or nervous while rehearsing.10/10 would sing again."​














The winner of New Zealand's X Factor 2013 Jackie Thomas

Here is a quote directly from her:


"I had never had a singing lesson pre- x factor, so I contacted Jennifer just a week before I was due to sing at judges retreat in Rarotonga.  I was a very very shy singer (and person) and she helped to teach me the basics and build my confidence very quickly.  She encouraged me when I broke down in tears infront of her due to the nerves and stress.  I feel like I've not just found a great singing teacher, but an awesome friend."









​​"Annie" the musical at the Civic Theatre in Auckland New Zealand

Here are testimonials from two of the orphans:

  

 Amelie James-Power played Orphan Kate

 "My mum heard about the Auditions for Annie and asked me if I wanted to try out.  I did because I loved dancing and putting on shows for my family and friends... but I hadn't ever sang before.  So we searched the internet and found Jennifer.  She was amazing, right from the beginning.  So kind and patient and fun, yet full of great advice.  I looked forward to my sessions with Jennifer, she really understood me and I began to love to sing.  I even joined the performance choir at school.  Now you just can't stop me, I love it.  Thank you Jennifer for helping me find my voice and get into Annie, it's changed my life! X"



​Lucy Taylor played Orphan Duffy


"I wanted to audition for the UK production of Annie when it came to Auckland but I never dreamed I'd get in!  Mum contacted Jennifer to give me some help with the songs and script once I got down to the last group of 60 girls.  Jennifer was so fun and I'm sure she was the reason I did well in the auditions because she helped me with singing and the acting and I got the part of 'Orphan Duffy'!  Now that Annie is finished, I'm still getting singing lessons with her."
