Voice Teacher and Vocal Coach

 

Jennie Such is a Lecturer in Applied Voice at The University of Western Ontario. Her voice studio is made up of both undergraduate and masters level students.

As a vocal coach, Jennie has worked behind the scenes as a vocal coach for the Mirvish production of the musical Billy Elliot. As a member of the music staff she coached the young actors in the roles of "Billy" and "Micheal" as well as adult actors in the roles of "Dad" and "Tony". Through this work she gained valuable experience with the changing male voice.

Jennie has worked as a guest artist in the vocal programme at the Claude Watson School for the Arts at Earl Haig Secondary School in Toronto. She is also frequently recommended by the school to prepare prospective students for entrance auditions.

Stratford Festival

 

Jennie Such joins the coaching staff at the Stratford Festival for the 2013/2014 season. As a singing teacher Jennie will coach the actors in the musicals "The Man of La Mancha" and "Crazy for You".


Masterclasses and Choral Workshops

 

Jennie was invited to Mount Allison University to work with the undergraduate vocal majors in a masterclass setting. She will be returning to present another vocal masterclass there in 2013.

Jennie has been invited to work with the East York Choir in their vocal retreat, and the Victoria College Choir in preparation for their production of the Mikado. She has also adjudicated choirs and small vocal ensembles at the Gander, Sudbury
Peterborough, National Capitol Region and Sault Ste. Marie Kiwanis Festivals.

When working with choirs Jennie incorporates a soloist's perspective on the techniques of vocal support, breath control, diction, projection and word emphasis into a choral setting, and encourages each chorister to connect with the drama of
the text, to create a wider palate of vocal colours.
