Jennifer Hamady

                    

I have offices in Washington DC and New York City, where I see the majority of my private clients. I also travel frequently to conduct workshops and master classes- Nashville and Los Angeles are two of my more frequent stops. For those of you unable to join me in person, I also offer video consultations and coachings via Skype and FaceTime.

Thanks to your requests, I have also recently begun to work with people through email; a great, cost-effective way to begin our journey together. Click here to learn more and to see if that may be a good fit for you.  

 

WHAT I BELIEVE

Singing and speaking are about much more than vocal technique and physiology. Unresolved fears, conflicting and unaddressed emotions, and incorrect belief systems can cause as many seemingly vocal issues as the voice itself.

It is therefore imperative to recognize, honor, and address these powerful relationships when developing a voice. Doing so ensures that mental and vocal tensions may be fully resolved, and that growth- both personal and musical- will be integrated and enduring.

This is true for everyone, as indeed, we are all communicators. Whether we express ourselves through song, family, community, creativity, or our professional work, it is the deepest of human desires to clearly, powerfully, and authentically share who we are with those around us... and to be heard. 

The journey of finding your voice is therefore a journey of finding yourself. Exploring who it is you are and what it is you want to say- including what has prevented or hindered you from doing so in the past- enables your entire being... voice, mind, body, and spirit... to engage in a song that comes wholly, effortlessly, and authentically from within you. 

 

BOOKS & ARTICLES

 

My experiences and all that I've learned from my own journey and those of my wonderful clients have been captured in my book: The Art of Singing, published by Hal Leonard in 2009, as well as my 2012 release Learning to Sing. My next book for Hal Leonard, The Art of Singing Onstage and in the Studio will be released May 2016, exploring the psychology, relationships, and technology in live and studio performance.

I also write regularly for The Huffington Post, Psychology Today, and American Songwriter on matters of personal, professional, and creative expression.

-Dominick Cicco, tenor, NYC

“Within the first coaching with Ms. Hamady, I developed a more comfortable approach to singing that sounded much closer to my natural voice that I unconsciously use every day in conversation.  After a performance less than a week later heard by strangers and friends alike, I received consistent observations attesting to my increased ‘resonance’ and overall expression.”
- Mike Block, Julliard School of Music

    

"Fly, run or swim to wherever this woman is... you will not regret it!"
