” I started my lessons when i was 11, and have now been one of Jo’s student for just over a year now and my skills have strongly developed. When I came to her I had never had any singing tuition before, and only sang the one genre of music, Musical theatre. Jo took on board what I liked, and the styles of music I am good at and went from that. She taught me theory, performance, scat, how to count beats, new skills, warm ups to do and how the voice works, and much more. Although she is most knowledgeable in Jazz , she was able to help me and teach several others, such as Classical, Musical Theatre, Pop , etc. She is a very patient and kind teacher, that pushes you to do better, but knows your limitations. Because of her background not only in jazz but in Musical Theatre, when I auditioned to get into a Performing Arts school she was able to help me pick a song that would show my abilities and help and improve the piece each lesson. Because of her help and encouragement I am now a full-time student at the school I applied to. Each lesson we do something different, and constantly work on new songs. I have a folder of several songs Jo has taught me, and many experiences that she has arranged for me out of class. some of those experiences included performing at a open mic with a live jazz band, and watching her perform at many different venues. I always look forward to class because i always learn new things, and pushes me to improve, but always takes into account what I enjoy, and what I like to sing.” – Ava O’Brien
