I have been owned and operated my private voice studio, JRD Voice Studio, since 2007. In addition to my private studio, I have been on faculty at the Vancouver Academy of Music since 2015. I frequently adjudicate at music festivals and competitions around Canada, and I have students that range in age from 6-76, beginners to pros...I work on vocal technique and musicianship, as well as specifically preparing students for RCM Exams, and auditions for everything from performing arts high schools to university, college, and conservatory auditions. I also teach a college-level diction course, helping students learn the International Phonetic Alphabet so that they can sing in any language. My greatest joy is helping my students discover THEIR unique instrument. I have both my Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from the Curtis Institute of Music and I was a Young Artist at the Lindemann Young Artist Development Program at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. I've got the skills to help you achieve your goals - and we'll have a LOT of fun learning!

Hey there! Are you looking for singing lessons? Want to improve your voice? Learn to read music? Take an exam? Get into a college voice program?

I offer access to the Full Voice workbooks, RCM exams, festivals, and competitions, as well as extensive prep for professional auditions. My experiences at the Curtis Institute of Music and the Metropolitan Opera have helped me to develop a compassionate, empathetic, and emotionally available approach that enables all students to find their authentic, unique voice.
