ABOUT WENDY L JONES
NEVER STOP LEARNING
In addition to B.M. and M.M. degrees in Vocal Performance from Appalachian State University, I've completed all three levels of the CONTEMPORARY AND COMMERCIAL MUSIC VOICE PEDAGOGY at Shenandoah University, completed Level I of Somatic Voicework (TM) - The LoVetri Method, and received a VOICE STYLES SPECIALIST CERTIFICATE from Berklee. At any given time, you'll find me spending my free time building on my skillset in jazz harmony and arranging classes, artist authenticity Seminars, songwriting workshops, jazz improv boot camps, acoustic vocal pedagogy courses, and collaborating and experimenting with low latency online music-making platforms with colleagues across the U.S. And the best part is: all that I learn gets passed on to my clients.
I stay up to date on the latest pedagogy and teaching methods by seeking out continuing education opportunities such as those previously mentioned AND by active participation in professional groups such as The National Association of Teachers of Singing (NC Chapter President), Pan American Vocology Association, ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers), Jazz Educators' Network, Actors' Equity Association, Association for Popular Music Education, the National Association of Recording Arts and Sciences (GRAMMY'S), and the Speakeasy Cooperative for Independent Studio Owners
I'm passionate about music and singing. I'm energetic. I'm goal-oriented and am willing to embrace new ideas and technologies. I'm willing to work hard to get the job done. I'm serious about the voice and everything it can do and now the question for you is: are you ready to get serious about yours?
