Expressive Voice Work has dramatically improved the singing and artistic output of thousands of people.  Moreover it has changed how they express themselves in the world and it can do the same for you.  Expressive Voice Work is for everyone, of all abilities (adults only).   We are all doing the beautiful work.

Come along to an initial short introductory session on a Saturday to say hi, have fun and see how this EVW can work for you.

What is Expressive Voice Work?

VOICE: craft & freedom


Singing technique/voice craft (CVT, Estill, SATA) interwoven with uninhibited sound making, improvisation, bodywork and movement to evolve expressive freedom.  We are born noise makers.  Find your voice.  Free your voice, your creative spirit, find your fire.  Through conversations, coaching, singing, songwriting, musicianship, self expression, confidence building, valuing your ‘voice’.  Expressive Voice Work is perfect for singers and ‘non-singers’.

SONGWRITING & MUSICALITY: words & noise


“There will never be another you.  You are completely authentically, absolutely unique in the history of this human race” Dustin Hoffman.
Every voice is important and joins in service of the whole.  Starting to write about your life, poems and lyrics, developing your songwriting and musicality is a beautiful way to honour and celebrate your life and your journey.  It’s something everyone can do, just for yourself or to share.  You can start with just one note.

 

ARTISTRY, COMMUNITY & COACHING


The Expressive Voice Studio creates a sacred space for the conversations, the work, the support.  We are all learning and growing together.  Doing the work.  Breathing, dancing, singing, writing, learning, listening.  This is a transformational journey into your DNA.  The voice sounds the soul.  People come to this work for many different reasons; to find freedom, to express themselves, to improve their artistry, to gain confidence, to have fun, to heal.  All adults welcome.

Jen has worked with clients on all the major record labels (EMI, BMG, Sony), with all the major music awards (Kerrang, NME, Brit awards).  Her only interest is in art and connecting with other human beings.  All adults can do this work and all are welcome.

Testimonials

“Jen spotted my uniqueness and has encouraged me to develop my own singing style.  We work on interesting, unique and beautiful songs and she helps me with my writing as well”

Julia, artist, singer/songwriter

“It’s hard to remember now but a year ago I had never sung a single word infront of another person and had chronic stage fright. A year and many public performances later I am making my love and passion for singing into a career!”

Betty, Soul Singer

“Jen’s an exceptional teacher!”

Letisha, Folk Singer/songwriter

“I can’t believe the extent to which i’ve developed my voice and confidence in such a short period of time! Due to Jen’s skill as a teacher and her belief in me I’m now writing and performing my own stuff regularly, something I never thought I could do.”

Sally, punk rock singer/songwriter

“Jen has a vast knowledge of her craft and the experience to match it.’

Joshua Marment, producer, singer/songwriter

Carmen, Singer/songwriter, vocal coach

“She’s exceptional”

Zac, singer/songwriter

“Jen is that rare thing: a gifted singer and a fantastic teacher. An active, passionate, curious musical artist, equally passionate and curious about the art of teaching, in her pupils and their development. She’s friendly, funny and a lot of fun – but there’s a deep underlying seriousness and wealth of technical experience running through her approach. I can’t recommend her enough.”

Seymour, Singer/Songwriter, Producer, Arranger

“Jen gets you to achieve things you didn’t know you could and teaches you in a totally authentic way for you as an artist.  Everything feels effortless and takes your performance to a whole different level”

Parry, Jazz/Contemporary Singer

“I had lost all my confidence in singing.  I now earn a living as a singer and coach myself and am very thankful for the support and training I received.  I highly recommend Jen to anyone of any level”

Mariam B, Singer, Vocal Coach

“Instantly actionable techniques that really work, as well as invaluable emotional reassurance. After three sessions I went to a rehearsal with my band, who were not aware that I was having lessons and jaws dropped. I recommend Jen unreservedly.”

Loretta, Soul Singer/songwriter
