Drawing from her many years of traditional voice training, her rich performance background, along with her spiritual studies, Jennifer created her own unique method of teaching voice, which she has been teaching since 2002. This method is all about opening and awakening one's true voice and having the courage and trust to express it. This work blends traditional vocal techniques with grounding and awareness to help the authentic voice to flow freely. Understanding that the voice truly is an expression of the soul, emphasis is put on releasing limiting beliefs that constrict the natural voice.
Students are led through relaxation exercises, as well as breathing techniques. Once grounded and relaxed, Jennifer guides students through vocalizing exercises, all with the intent of opening, expanding, and strengthening the voice. Her students will work on singing songs that allow them to step more fully into their power and courage in expressing their voice out to others. Most of the songs she uses are from musical theatre, pop/jazz, or folk, and songs will be learned by listening to recordings and reading sheet music. Basic music theory is taught, if needed. Her students sing to prerecorded backing tracks to allow Jennifer her full attention on coaching.
For students who feel called to write and sing their own songs, Jennifer guides them lovingly through the process of creating and expressing their own music (see Songwriting Lessons below). Every three months Jennifer holds musical sharing events (aka "recitals") for her students to share their voices with friends and family.
These lessons are fun, joyful , and non-threatening. They are open to all levels and all ages, from 8 on up. Please see fees below.
"I have had the honor to work with Jennifer for a little over a month now. My voice has not only blossomed and transformed completely, but she has helped me regain the confidence that I need as a performer. She has the ability to make you feel comfortable enough to open up emotionally and connect those emotions to the voice. Signing up for voice lessons with Jennifer has been one of the best decisions of my life."
-Jessie Marks, Santa Cruz, CA
"Jennifer Bloomer is a special voice instructor who has a talent for working with young people. She knows how to make her students feel comfortable, while challenging them to develop their gift. Her love of music and her students is obvious; her skill as an instructor immediately apparent. Her pure energy and positive approach help her students learn proper technique and establish a solid vocal foundation. I'm thankful that our daugher, Bridget, has had the opportunity to work with someone so experienced and caring."
