Growing up in a musical family, singing & performing was always part of Jess’s life. After attending local Stage Schools as a child, Jess went on to study Musical Theatre at Leeds College of Music (now Leeds Conservatoire) followed by Arden School of Theatre, Manchester graduating with a 1st Class BA (Hons) in Musical Theatre.
Jess has spent over a decade working in the Entertainment industry, from UK Theatre tours to Disneyland Paris, Luxury Hotels to 6* Cruise Liners, and continues to do so. Performing a wide variety of styles, including Classical, Musical Theatre, Pop and Rock, Jess has to constantly adapt her voice to suit the requirements and demands of the job.
Whilst performing, Jess maintains her own vocal health by regular visits to Singing Coaches and keeping up to date with the latest research and advice.
Always wanting to improve her skillset, Jess completed the 20-hour BAST Course for Singing Teachers in February 2020 and was certified as a Vocal Health First Aider in January 2021.
As a Vocal Health First Aider, Jess can assist with any Vocal worries you may have, offering guidance and advice on ways to move forward and how to achieve optimal Vocal use.
I would recommend Jess, she has helped me gain confidence in my voice, provided great feedback on how to improve using industry experience and helped me to expand my repertoire especially in areas I’m not familiar with. Every lesson with Jess is great fun and you leave feeling good about yourself!

I would absolutely recommend lessons with Jess! The techniques Jess uses are tailored to you and you are encouraged to go at a pace that suits you.
Jess immediately made me feel comfortable and is really great at going at a pace that works for me and my skill set. I have always loved singing but Jess has helped me to really let go and trust in my voice! Thank you Jess.
