“Like any good jazz musician, Jenny uses her voice as an instrument, improvising and playing with the melodies… the kind of singer that goes deep into the song and makes you feel the lyrics.”
– Jazz Times
Jenny offers singing lessons, voice coaching and music composition for all ages and all levels of experience. A popular instructor, students study with Jenny to expand their vocal range, acquire proper methods of basic vocal placement, and support of tone through the breath, while honing skills in phrasing and microphone use. Her style is upbeat and positive!
Some students come to the studio with no vocal training. Much like learning to play a wind or brass instrument, Jenny teaches students how to “play” their voice through proper vocal technique. Lessons are structured to develop fundamentals of vocal placement and breath support, while encouraging students to choose songs that inspiring and fun! Her vocal coaching emphasizes skills in musicianship and performance for jazz, pop, rock, country, folk and musical theater from beginner to professional, as students work for the joy of music, and/or toward a career in music.
Jenny is often invited to lead clinics and workshops at colleges, high schools and chorales, bringing with her a focus on musicianship for vocalists. As well as working with students on composing, arranging and leading instrumental ensembles. A Seattle native Jenny Davis, she holds a MFA in Music Composition and received her Bachelor of Music from Cornish College of the Arts. An international jazz vocalist and composer with over 25 years of teaching experience, she actively performs throughout the U.S., Europe, Canada.
