Colleen Jennings is an inspiring musician and teacher. Her ability to communicate emotion through the power of her voice is what has been most impressive to me throughout my work with her. She is completely in command of her technique as a perfomer, so the music she sings is without any technical limitation. As a teacher, she is clear and concise, able to articulate the exact technical issue that has to be addressed, as well as being able to demonstrate anything without hesitation, through a wide variety of musical styles and genres. Most importantly, her genuine artistry ensures that students are aware of the meaning of what they are singing, and thus further trains them to be real musicians, true to the communication of the music. After collaborating with Colleen multiple times as a pianist, as well as accompanying her students and observing her lessons, I would highly recommend Colleen as a teacher and as a singer for all levels and styles of music.

Colleen guided me through to maximize my potential as a lyric soprano by showing me a series of techniques, which improved my voice dramatically in a short period of time. She was my coach while I was a Master's student at Mahidol University in Thailand. She always gave me cleverly selected repertoires to challenge me, and she showed me how to sing them and tackle the problems with clarity. She is not only a great teacher but also an amazing performer - this is why her lesson is effective because she can show you everything. I can never thank her enough for sharing her knowledge with me.
