Teacher Feature: Jenny Payne Vocal and Basic Piano Instructor
The Music Abode would like to welcome vocal and basic piano instructor Jenny Payne to our family! Jenny is now accepting new students and after being with us for just a few weeks she is already receiving student referrals, her schedule will no doubt fill up quickly! Jenny’s calm and patient demeanor combined with her well rounded music education are what make her adaptable to most students.
Since graduating Magna Cum Laude with her BA in Vocal Performance from Vanguard University, Jenny has been teaching private lessons and is also currently singing in a local folk band. While this is a new style of singing for her, she has grown up learning many different styles of singing. From classical, to theater and now contemporary and folk genres. While at Vanguard, Jenny held positions as Section Leader, Student Conductor and President of the University Concert Choir. She also was a member of the Vanguard Singers and Band touring internationally.
Jenny’s biography reads as a very serious, well rounded and educated individual; however, her biggest strengths are in her ability to communicate vocal techniques to her students in a relative manner. She likes to say, “I don’t take myself seriously, but I do take music seriously.” Jenny likes to create a positive environment for her students to feel comfortable exploring, learning, and growing their vocal abilities and music education. “Life can be crazy and hectic, I want to make sure my students feel like our lesson time is a space where they can let go and have fun while they learn.”
