A Lifelong Voice
with Jacqueline Novikov
Mindsets and Techniques to Get Started
Singing well in the studio is not enough. No matter your previous experience, every student will practice singing in front of a real audience.
Shed habits that are holding your voice back and gain mental flexibility to learn new skills.
Build a strong foundation of vocal technique that can be applied to any style of singing.

It’s my favorite day of the week because I get to see Jacqueline and sing!— Nicole, age 12
I didn't really get to thank you after our concert today and I truly want to do so from the bottom of my heart. I've learned so much from you over these two years, from singing styles and techniques to acting skills and standing in front of an audience to general physical wellbeing. I know I've grown so much under your guidance and you've always made me feel comfortable and supported. I love meeting the other students, performing with them and you. Thank you again so, so, so much for being such an amazing and wonderful teacher. It's been an honor to be your student!— Elie, age 18
