What people are saying about Jeannette LoVetri

"I was particulary pleased with Ms. LoVetri's approach to non-classical sounds. The students were given very clear and scientific explanations regarding the way the larynx functions when making these sounds, as well as vocalises which promote vocal health and freedom."

Gayle Lockwood,
Brigham Young University, Utah

"The response to you and the Broadway Workshop was highly enthusiastic from student participants, observers and especially voice faculty members. The opera club received high praise for having sponsored such a successful project."

Shirley Thomson,
Towson State University, Towson Md

"Your workshop was invaluable in presenting our students and guests in the audience with, as you expressed, "hands-on" information for singing theater repertoire healthily. It (the workshop) knocked me out."

Pamela Jordan, Chair, Voice Master Class Series,
Loyola College, Md

"From her first words to the initial performer, it was evident that we were in the presence of an expert from whom we could learn so much...Her reminders to the students of solidly-held vocal practices encouraged many of the teachers who often look suspiciously upon non-classical singing. The audience...did not want the program to end. She is equally versed in classical and music theater techiques. Her comments on breath management, posture, tone production,etc., reinforced the fact that good, healthy singing is the order, regardless of the style of music performed. "

Marianne Grzywacz, President, Virgina NATS

"It is with great pleasure that I write to let you know that we have had a tremendous response from your visit to Australia...Your sessions were thoroughly enjoyed by all who took part, and many people have conveyed that you return. As an ambassador for the arts you more than met our expectations"

Janice Light, Co-ordinator of Seminars, Voice Productions Unlimited,
Sydney, Australia

"In 35 years of experience in the world of singers and singing, I have encountered many, many teachers and "experts" on voice. I don't believe that I have ever met anyone who is so thoroughly grounded in her were able to demonstrate to the attendees exactly what is occurring during the process of phonation and resonance. The complexity of that mechanism is considerable, however you were able to communicate clearly and concisely to the diverse attendees, whose understanding ranged from the rank beginner to those sophisticated in the world of science."

John Shackelford, Music Director,
Connecticut Conservatory of the Performing Arts, New Milford Ct

"I would like to thank you for coming to the University of Toledo and giving us the opportunity to learn from you, regarding the training of singers for contemporary commercial music. There is so much confusion regarding this art form and how traditional voice teachers can help the artists who wish to perform in various styles. Your lecture and master class went a long way to clearing the haze from the eyes of hardworking teachers who really want to learn."

Erik Johanson, Associate Professor of Music, Dept of Music and Dance,
University of Toledo, Toledo,OH

" I would like to express our sincere appreciation for your outstanding and inspiring master class that you gave at Shenandoah University...I have attended many other musical theater master classes and belt workshops with well-known vocal instructors and have not felt any were able to fully explain how to produce the tone, demonstrate it or teach it. You were not only able to explain scientifically, but were also able to demonstrate with your own voice the differences between head voice, mix and chest tone...You are truly a gifted musician."

Edrie Means Weekly, Associate Professor of Voice,
Shenandoah Conservatory, Winchester, Va.

"Our Music Theater Committee has said that your insights for them were extremely helpful. The master class was a big sucess. All of us learned a great deal about what is expected and needed for vocal production that is stylistically appropiate for music theater and also healthy for the voice. The meeting with the voice faculty was especially enlightening."

Lindsey Christiansen, Chair of the Piano and Voice Dept.,
Rider University Westminster Choir College, Princeton NJ
