PRIVATE STUDIOS

Suzanne Jalbert Jones

Suzanne's greatest love is educating, and she holds a BM in Vocal Performance from the New England Conservatory as well as a Masters in Choral Conducting from the University of New Hampshire. She treats each student as an individual with different musical strengths and weaknesses. She focuses on expression and uncovering the natural voice, while pressing students to explore interpretive ideas and deeper meanings in the music. She requires all young singers to study piano, as she strives to send musicians into the world, not just "singers." She delights in learning from her students and collaborating with them on recitals, auditions, projects, and competitions.
