SJVoice: sing as easily as you speak


I just want to say thank you again for how much you helped me. In just 2 sessions you got me exactly where I had to be. To use a cliche phrase with utter sincerity, I couldn't have done it without you!

Sarah is a phenomenal teacher. Her technical knowledge is immediately evident, and she knows how to explain her diagnosis and recommended exercises in ways that make the most sense for each individual student. But even more than her technical mastery, what shines through is Sarah's gift for teaching. She gently coaches, encourages, mentors and challenges her students, creating a completely safe environment where everyone, regardless of experience, can find their voice. She not only builds voices, she builds confidence.

Sarah Jaysmith is a deeply experienced, encouraging and patient teacher, who makes voice lessons fun, inspiring and educational and not the slightest bit intimidating. My range and tonal quality have improved leaps and bounds since I've begun working with her!

Sarah is a wonderful singing teacher.  In the time that we have worked together, I have noticed an improvement in the clarity of my voice, my vocal range and my overall confidence.  The vocal exercises and Sarah's attention to detail have helped me to become more aware of proper technique.  As a result, I am a stronger singer.  Sarah is extremely knowledgable and passionate about music.  She teaches with confidence and humour and is very encouraging.  In addition, her tips on performing have been invaluable during auditions and performances.

I can honestly say that Sarah Jaysmith has changed my voice, and improved it beyond what I thought was possible. She is a patient and inspiring teacher, and had me working muscles in my throat that I didnít even know existed. Her encouragement and humour makes each lesson an excellent experience. Beyond her teaching abilities, she is a talented composer, a powerful performer, and a fantastic accompanist. I feel fortunate to know such a multi-faceted and talented musician, and luckier still to have had the opportunity to learn from her.

My lessons with Sarah have given my voice much more ease and stability. Even in less than ideal situations - like at the end of a long show week - I know I can depend on my instrument in a way I've never been able to before I worked with Sarah.

Sarah is a terrific singing coach and my voice has improved and grown stronger with her training. Thank you Sarah!
