Cultivate Your Voice

Voice Lessons at Perennial Voice Studio

Get Started

Cultivating talented and confident singers!

Deep down you know singing is something you need to do, whether it be professionally, in the local community, or just for your own sense of artistic fulfillment.

Maybe you see your child’s enthusiasm for music and know that with a little training they would really shine!

Singing looks like it could be so fun, so natural, so expressive!

But right now, things just aren’t working. Your voice isn’t doing what you want it to do – things that seem like they come so easily to other people. You wonder why it’s just not happening for you!

You’re not sure what kinds of songs you should be singing or how to perform them with confidence and skill. You have a hunch that you’re not presenting your best self at auditions as you see opportunities pass you by. You realize you need to act the song, not just sing it, but you’re not sure how.

Or maybe singing has become a source of stress, confusion, or shame for you and you haven’t found a way out yet.

But now, you know it’s time for a change.

You’re done allowing a lack of training stop you from reaching your full potential.

You’re READY to kick confusion to the curb, transform your voice, and discover what it can really do!

Welcome, you’ve come to the right place!  

Vocal training will give you a voice that is reliable, healthy, and FUN to use!  Imagine what it would feel like to finally sing with ease, confidence, and joy, whether that be on stage or in the shower!

At Perennial Voice Studio we’ll help you…

  • Overcome vocal limitations that prevent you from sounding your best
  • Find the PERFECT song for your next audition
  • Combat that stage fright that kicks in hardcore before you step onto the stage
  • Get clarity about presentation and acting skills so you can communicate effectively with the audience
  • Learn music theory, sight singing, and music reading skills

You’ll feel more prepared, assured, and supported when you have someone in your corner to help guide you.

We help you gain mastery over the limitations that have held you back in the past so that you can become the talented and courageous singer that’s already inside of you.

Every singer ought to have a guide to help them navigate their journey through the singing world!

Ready to start singing? Here’s what to do!

  1. Schedule a complimentary Consultation Call. We’ll chat and figure out how I can best help you reach your goals.
  2. Get invited to a 45-minute Initial Fit Lesson where we figure out where you are vocally and determine a plan of action to get you where you want to go.
  3. Join the studio and start your journey to the voice you’ve always wanted!

Get ready to have fun and make some vocal magic!

Tuition Rates

Voice lessons are an investment in you (or your child!). They are an investment in not only your voice but your musical future, the opportunities available to you throughout your lifetime, and the joy and fulfillment you get from singing and making music. There are a few ways to work with me 1-on-1.

Regular Weekly Lessons

Most people benefit from regular weekly lessons. These ongoing lessons are best for developing singers, since it takes regular steady work over time to develop the voice.

Monthly tuition rates start at $299.

Drop-in Lessons

Drop-in lessons are best for emerging professionals or highly-skilled singers who just need to brush up a song or need a few quick pointers.

Drop-in lessons start at $95.

Summer Package

For the summer of 2022 I am offering a flexible 6-lesson package. You can find more information about the summer package here.

Summer package rate is $499.

“We would HIGHLY recommend Jessica Walch for voice lessons. Our daughter has the opportunity to take lessons with her and LOVES it! Jessica is able to challenge her, support her, and inspire while having fun and building her confidence as a singer. Jessica is highly skilled in her job. She gives the parents feedback and can work with beginners and experts alike. Our daughter is always singing. Do yourself a favor and sign up with Jessica. You will not be disappointed.”

—Adrienne B. Five stars

“When I first came to Jessica for voice lessons, I was convinced my voice was embarrassing and never let anyone hear me sing a note. As a challenge to myself, I wanted to become free of this fear that held me back. At our first lesson I was able to do the beginning voice exercises and Jess assured me that my voice was definitely adequate should I choose to train it! Many lessons later I am able to enjoy my voice and find singing satisfying in a way I didn’t think was possible for me. Jess is positive, energetic and very professional. I highly recommend her.”

—Susan E. Five stars

“My daughter loves Jessica! She is so excited for her lessons! Jessica makes you feel comfortable and really brings out the best in your child! Highly Recommend!”

—Karen C. Five stars

“Jessica’s talent and her ability to teach are a winning combination!!”

—Carolyn M. Five stars

Teaching Philosophy

I believe that the best voice teachers lead with curiosity, compassion, and heart. Learning to sing can be a winding road that is best traveled with an experienced, compassionate guide!

My goal is to get all my students singing with a healthy, functional technique that will last a lifetime. I want each of my students to reach their vocal goals and still enjoy the process along the way!

Learning to sing requires both the student and me to stay open-minded and willing to try new & different things.

Being a voice teacher is such a privilege and I am honored to work with each one of my students!

Why join Perennial Voice Studio?

With so many options for singing lessons, how do you choose? Local multi-teacher music schools often have less experienced (or even current college student) teachers who are usually working with a large number of students and can’t give any one student much personal attention or thought. Teachers who are famous on social media may be great but also might not teach consistently anymore and will pass you off to their associate teachers.

When you join us at Perennial Voice Studio, you’re joining a high-caliber boutique studio where the focus is on you and your progress. You’ll get the best in instruction from an experienced teacher, lots of personal attention, the most current in scheduling software to make your experience the best it can be, and so much more. You’ll also have opportunities to participate in workshops and performance opportunities and/or competitions (as the world begins to return to normal!).

Other Offerings

In addition to offering private voice lessons for kids and adults, I occasionally offer group singing classes for kids and singing classes for adults.

You’re probably pretty sure that voice lessons are for you. Let’s meet! Schedule a call so we can chat and find out what singing lessons can do for you and your voice.

If you are looking for the best voice lessons in New Jersey, you’ve come to the right place! I look forward to working with you!

Singing is a skill that can be cultivated over time with the right guidance. The best voice teacher for you is the one who you feel comfortable with and confident in. It’s the person who helps you improve your voice within the first few lessons, but also has the skills to help you over the long haul.

Singing lessons can be a life-changing place of growth. Don’t miss out on your transformation!
