Singing Technique Masterclass w/ Jennifer Peers
A special singing technique masterclass for Musical Theatre performers.
The Hub is excited to welcome Jennifer Peers to our Musical Theatre School for a special singing technique masterclass! Each week you will be guided through a group singing warm-up, with practical exercises and in-depth discussion to help better understand your voice. This will be followed by a masterclass where you will have the opportunity to perform a solo and apply these skills in performance.
This is for you if:
- You are currently working on a show and want to keep your voice healthy.
- You need help preparing for auditions or your next show.
- You are a dancer or actor struggling with vocal identity as a “singer”.
- You have recently graduated from training and need guidance transitioning from student to professional.
- You are looking to be challenged and inspired, understand your instrument better, set new goals, or level up your career.
This masterclass is open to singers of all levels.
I came to Jen as a weekly vocal coach after graduating from WAAPA. Jen soon became much more than this! With advice about the industry, casting agents and golden information she soon became a life saver. Jen has such in-depth knowledge as a singer and performer and can always answer my obscure questions, no matter the topic. Her studio space is friendly and open, much like Jen herself and she has allowed my voice to grow exponentially.
I wanted a singing teacher who was a performer themselves, someone who was part of the industry. I needed a teacher who would challenge me, be honest, supportive with a focus on process. I needed to build a strong and varied repertoire of audition songs. I needed a teacher I could discuss audition technique, strategy and choices. In seeking the right teacher I searched long and hard… and the same recommendation kept coming thick and fast – Jennifer Peers! And what a sensational recommendation she has proven to be. Jen is quite simply superb – a dedicated, passionate and professional teacher – and in the words of some else on this page – bloody lovely herself! I cannot recommend her more highly!
I started getting regular lessons with Jen after working with her at NIDA. I wanted to give my voice and performance more freedom and stop second-guessing myself. Jen helped me appreciate my own uniqueness, which was instrumental in getting me my first professional gig in Muriel’s Wedding the Musical. Jen is an excellent, friendly teacher with a deep knowledge of singing, performance and the industry. I would recommend her to anyone — she just gets it!
I found that I had gotten to a place with my voice where I felt stuck. I honestly didn’t know how to progress myself further. That’s where Jen comes to the rescue. The beautiful thing about the way Jen teaches is that she has a wealth of technical knowledge and uses this knowledge in way that meets you right where you’re at on your journey. Jen knows how to get the best out of your instrument and shows you how to make it better. From an acting point of view, Jen knows exactly how to get you engaging with your songs with deeper understanding of the text and gives you the confidence to make bolder acting choices of your own. If you want to sing your songs with technical proficiency, emotional engagement and most of all confidence I could not recommend Jen enough.
Sessions will be in two parts:
1. Group warm-up and singing technique.
2. Masterclass where each participant will have the opportunity to perform and receive individual personalized feedback.
