Vocal Coach

Jennie is a certified Complete Vocal Technique vocal coach (Complete Vocal Institute, Copenhagen.) She graduated in 2011 and has been teaching professionals, artist and amateurs ever since. Her passion and compassion makes her a great teacher and her motivation to help everyone reach their vocal goals are very important to her. Her experience as a singer/actress gives her great musical knowledge which is important for the students. Due to her work as an actress she is also able to work with interpretation and not just technique.

 

She is the official Vocal Coach of The Voice of Finland (Nelonen Media). Due to the tight schedule the vocal coach needs to be thinking on her feet and be able to give tools that work for the singers at once. Also being part of a huge tv-production such as The Voice of Finland, you need to be able to work not only with the celebrity coaches but also with the production team.

She has her own vocal studio in Helsinki.
