Holly Ann Jennings

Teaching Artist Statement
My chief goal as a teacher is to create a safe, encouraging environment where any student with a love of music and desire to sing can find and explore their voice.  I work with students to develop a healthy vocal technique and an age appropriate repertoire full of music they love.  For me, singing has always been one of the purest forms of expression.  Watching a student grow as a performer, reach the point where they are fully connected to their music, and singing from the heart is one of my greatest joys as a teacher.
