Creation: 'Like a freight train'


At birth the voice is free as the birds

“The voice comes from a part of yourself that simply knows, expresses itself and is” – Jeff Buckley

Creativity is beyond the mind

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science.”  Einstein.

“I love the feeling of a song before…

…you understand it.  When we’re all playing deep inside the moment the song feels wild and unbroken. ..there is a moment when the song is still in charge and you just cling on for dear life… It is that fleeting moment that we chase in the studio”.  Nick Cave.

Every piece of ‘art’ originates in the act of improvisation; in the demo, the sketch, the journal, the dance, the spontaneous, uncertain, trusting moment.  It is my belief that technical work must be balanced with uninhibited voice work.  It's my belief that singers/artists/musicians should practise being 'in the moment', mindfulness.  The absence of analytical, critical thought.  The act of free improvisation (spontaneous creativity) is something everyone can do.  It’s something you practise.  There is a clarity that comes from doing, from allowing a stream of consciousness, spontaneous creative flow. 

I love these exercises in voice work.  Particularly exploring the whole of the voice; delving into the 'imperfections'.  Being free with the voice.

"When I first came to Jennie 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 her to anyone of any level".  Mariam B.  Fronts her own band/Cabaret.
