“If I cannot fly, let me sing.”
Singing is an expression of one’s creativity and spirit. Jane Ericksen Voice Studio strives to nurture this by providing positive and inspiring voice lessons that foster each student’s vocal health and techniques. A balance of imagery, pedagogical facts, and kinesthetic movements will be used in accordance with each student’s learning style to affirm and achieve his or her vocal ambitions. A variety of musical genres will be utilized to develop vocal flexibility and resonance. Most importantly, the studio will provide a fun and safe environment where students will learn the skills and knowledge necessary to excel in any vocal situation.

“Top-tier vocal instructor!”
Jane is an excellent vocal instructor. I have two daughters ages 8 and 9 currently taking lessons with her. I myself am a singer and took lessons for years at Westminster Choir College. I am familiar with the typical approaches to vocal instruction and am very impressed with the novel techniques Jane employs when teaching, particularly children. Both of my daughters find Jane to be engaging, entertaining, and energetic. They always look forward to their time with her and typically think of their weekly lessons as one of the week’s highlights. Jane is very patient with my girls, taking the time to reinforce concepts and present the same information in alternate ways to ensure my girls understand and appreciate what is being taught. It is clear that Jane has a strong passion for teaching and singing, two essential components to being a top-tier vocal instructor. I highly recommend Jane to anyone seeking an instructor who possesses a diverse toolbox for teaching and is herself a very accomplished vocalist.
“In a few lessons others have noticed significant improvement in my singing.”
I have studied voice for over 17 years. Amongst my teachers there have been famous singers who have performed at the Metropolitan Opera House, La Scala and Covent Garden. and yet none of them compares to Jane. She has very accurately and promptly identified my problems and targeted them proficiently. She is very energetic, eloquent and enthusiastic. It is clear that Jane herself received excellent instruction and made the most of it. Jane communicates effectively, and more importantly, teaches from the heart. In a few lessons my choirmaster and others have noticed significant improvement in the quality of my singing.
“I can't recommend Jane enough!”
My 12 year old daughter has been taking lessons with Jane following 3-4 years of singing in various choral groups, and the experience has been nothing short of fantastic. Jane has done a great job of teaching and/or locking down the fundamentals of singing - from breathing, to posture, to how to practice effectively - while also keeping the learning fun and making it feel like it is not work. My daughter has deepened her love of singing while learning a great deal at the same time. I can't recommend Jane enough!
“[She] coaches you to reach your potential!”
Jane makes you feel comfortable about pursuing your vocal range. She demonstrates the techniques and coaches you to reach your potential.
“Professional, knowledgeable and makes singing fun!”
Jane worked with my 15 year old son for several months during a time when his voice was changing and complex. Jane is extremely professional, knowledgeable and makes singing fun! She helped prepare my son for a challenging vocal institute. Most importantly, she nurtured his love of music!
“My daughter was very happy and comfortable.”
What a great first lesson. Jane accomplished so much in just half an hour, teaching my daughter warm ups and began work on proper technique. My daughter was very happy and comfortable with Jane.
