Soprano Bryn Jimenez has taught students of all ages, levels, and backgrounds for over a decade. Her instruction emphasizes solid vocal technique as a foundation for all genres of repertoire, and she specializes in teaching fundamental and remedial breathwork for singers who struggle to integrate coordinated breathing and phonation. Lessons also include exercises for alignment, coaching on language, performance practice, dramatic interpretation, and audition preparation as needed.
Many of Bryn's students perform in musical theatre productions and choirs. Her school-age students have auditioned successfully for NYSSMA and Trinity College exams, TMEA and TPSMEA Choirs, UIL District and State Solo & Ensemble contests, and college music degree programs.
Ms. Jimenez holds certification from the Victoria Conservatory of Music’s Teacher Training Program, which emphasizes pedagogy and appropriate repertoire for voices at all levels and stages of physiological development. She also holds degrees in Vocal Performance from The Victoria Conservatory of Music in conjunction with Camosun College and from the Vancouver Academy of Music in conjunction with Thompson Rivers University, and a certification in Buteyko Breathing Method from Buteyko Clinic International.
Since graduation, Bryn has continued to train privately with teachers and coaches in the United States and Germany.
As a performer, Ms. Jimenez has appeared in operas, oratorios, concerts, and recitals in North America and Europe and has received several awards and scholarships from organizations in the United States and Canada.
