I am here to help you find your voice
If you are experiencing a voice problem, I can help with rehabilitation and a return to health.
If you are a singer wanting to explore your potential, I can help you to find ease and expression.
If you are a teacher wishing to know more, I can guide you on your learning journey.

During my performing career I was surprised by the lack of awareness of vocal technique and vocal health among singers; I wanted to know more. Combining this interest with my scientific background led me to PhD and post-doctoral research. I have used this to publish books and papers, and to design courses for other teachers. I am continually refreshing and updating these, both leading and responding to the latest research and philosophy in this field.

Singing Teaching

I teach professional singers of all ages. My approach is always one of finding efficiency through economy of effort. We will discover your individual vocal expression using emotive sounds and physical balance. Everything is firmly rooted in scientific evidence, although you may not need to be aware of this as you learn new sensations.

Although my own performing background and specialism is in opera and consort singing, I have taught a variety of styles to professional performance level, including Musical Theatre. I am one of the few Pan American Voice Association recognised Vocologists.

If you are interested in finding out more about what easy and balanced singing feels like, I strongly recommend that you come for a consultation lesson to find out for yourself.

Voice Rehabilitation

All voice users suffer from ill health at some time. I work a great deal with singers who are recovering from injury, or just people experiencing a problem with their voices.

My approach is always through the biopsychosocial lens; everything is connected and there is never one single cause for a voice issue. As a regular member of the team in an NHS multidisciplinary Voice Clinic, I have an ongoing understanding of vocal health and healing.

I am a trained Vocal Massage therapist, so I can offer gentle and pain-free hands-on treatment. I also work within the multidisciplinary, holistic Voice Care Centre. The centre provides singers with joined-up treatment and care, we all work as a team to support the process of rehabilitation beyond just recovery.

Mentoring for Singing Teachers and Choral Conductors

Teachers can benefit from the bespoke guidance that mentoring offers, whether you are new to teaching or just looking to update and refresh your ideas.

Not every teacher is able to attend courses, and the opportunity for some ongoing counsel for your own particular needs can be invaluable.

Masterclasses and Workshops

Get the best results from your choir with expert advice on healthy voice use, coupled with some simple exercises and vocal awareness to help your singers.

Masterclasses can be part of teacher-training days, or as standalone events.

Masterclasses and workshops

All courses are now available online and in person. The online courses have pre-recorded content with the option of personal tutoring in addition to this. The in-person courses are delivered worldwide and can be tailored to the needs of your group.

Courses are delivered through Evolving Voice Ltd. The courses on offer can provide information and practical guidance for music teachers, musical directors, singing and voice teachers. You may be a beginner teacher fresh from college or an experienced tertiary-level teacher wanting to explore a wider range of options for your students. There are courses suitable for the classroom teacher who would like to try some more singing with their students, or a choral conductor who wants to check that their warm-ups and vocal guidance are really on the right lines.

  • I had a really enjoyable time doing the concert on Saturday and the Strauss just fell into place with the pianist in a beautiful space. I was able to just tell the story and play with colours, which feels very much like the G of old! And, the audience were very happy. Thank you for helping me.
  • The thing that amazes me about these courses is both the amazing content but also Jenevora’s ability to build community and make you feel like you know people and her even though you’re not even in the same country as everyone else let alone the same room. It’s absolutely the highlight of my week.

  • I’m sure I would have given up by now without your encouragement, it’s thanks to you that I am no longer nervous about singing.
  • Thank you for a great lesson today. Really enjoying singing with you. Thank you for all your clarity and advice. I’m in good hands.
  • I just wanted to also say the most enormous thank you for all of your help. Both vocally and emotionally, it was such a pleasure meeting you and having the training with you in the safe space you provided for me. I will be forever grateful!

  • With Dr. Jenevora I felt I could be truly honest in a safe space to try new things with someone who was really listening and tailoring to my needs. Armed with such a wealth of knowledge and professional singing experience, Jenevora really understands things from a singers point of view, offering such brilliant advice and new techniques and ideas, all with a light, gentle and humorous touch. As an experienced professional, I have never made such progress before. She is a mentor I wholeheartedly trust.

  • I wanted to follow up on the mentoring that you provided me when I was applying for my PhD and I was a bit lost as to how to go about my topic of interest. Your advice was really invaluable and I wanted to tell you that.

    I am now in my second year of the PhD and have just been given provisional ethics approval (minor amendments suggested). This morning, I presented my research in front of a university panel. But it started with the hour that you sat with me on Zoom.
