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’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. 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.

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 big time before you step onto the stage
  • Captivate the audience with your performances
  • Figure out what direction your musical journey can take, whether it be professional, simply for your own enjoyment, or somewhere in-between
  • Learn how to understand the notes on the page so you feel empowered in rehearsals

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 skillful and courageous singer that’s already inside of you.

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!

  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.

Voice lessons are an investment in you (or your child!).

“Working with Jessica at Perennial Voice Studio has been truly a wonderful experience. It is a communal effort in the studio and I learn something new during every lesson. Jessica has such great energy and creates a positive atmosphere during our sessions. Perennial Voice helped me throughout my preparation for performing college as a theatre major with interest in musical theater. I went into my audition feeling confident due to the preparation work with Jessica. I plan to continue lessons while on break because it is such a great place to work on becoming a better singer and performer.”

“My daughter has been taking voice lessons with Jessica for just over a year now and we absolutely love her. My daughter looks forward to going each week. She has learned so much – from reading music, to learning how to pick the right songs for her voice, she has so much fun and she has improved exponentially. We are thrilled with where she is today compared to where she was a year ago. In addition, the recital that Jessica puts together in the Spring is just amazing to watch. So many talented singers from all age groups. My daughter was put out of her comfort zone having to perform in front of a room full of people and it was a WONDERFUL learning experience for her. We truly cannot recommend Jessica more highly.”

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.”

“Perennial Voice is AMAZING! I have been singing on and off in different choruses and choirs since about 4th grade. I love to sing. But somewhere along the line, I lost my confidence. Jessica has been working hard to help me bring my confidence back. I felt so comfortable with her from my very first lesson. I’m so glad that I took the plunge and am working with her. I look forward to going to my lesson every week. I can’t recommend Perennial Voice enough!!!”

—Amanda Y. 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!”

Why join a boutique voice studio?

With so many options for singing lessons, how do you choose? Music schools with multiple teachers often have less experienced 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 a highly experienced teacher, lots of personal attention, the most current software to make scheduling lessons a breeze, opportunities to participate in performances and competitions, customized practice materials, and more.
