Do you want to become a better singer, speaker, performer? Have you dreamed of singing on the big stage or simply just for fun?
Specializing in Pop, Theatre, R&B, Rock, and Broadway I am here to help you succeed and be happy in vocal technique and performance, auditions and confidence. Teaching is my passion, and I have great successes with students of all ages and backgrounds such as: Michael Mahany who is now playing the lead in "Wicked" and "High School Musical" in New York and Nationally. Also George Dvorsky playing the lead on Broadway of "Jekyll and Hyde" and "Anything Goes" at Lincoln Center. Jeff Calhoun, known for his brilliant chorus dancing in "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" on Broadway, learned how to sing with Jane. He then scored leading roles with Tommy Tune. Jeff Calhoun is now one of the most sought after directors on Broadway. Lets have your voice be heard! :D

I can help you (or your child) to be able to sing in tune, freely and easily with projection, while eliminating injurious vocal habits. The singing technique I embrace promotes health and longevity of the voice, and singing should not be difficult or uncomfortable in any range. I never promote pushing, straining, or false manufacturing of a certain sound, even in the "pop" style of singing. I have been teaching music professionally for 20 years, and private voice lessons for over 14 years. I work with adults, teens and pre-teens to help improve musicianship while helping all to find the true beauty and power of the natural singing voice. In addition to teaching choir and music theory at Middle and High School levels, I have also been a musical theatre performer, a member of a rock band, a professional pianist and a professional opera singer.
