"I first met Jenn at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. She started out so simple it almost killed me but I learned more about my breathing than I ever thought possible. As we started singing I found my voice again, which I had lost to a terrible vocal teacher years before. Jenn has taught me to stretch in ways I never thought possible. I was told over and over that I would never sing in a soprano range and yet now she and I are working on that type of music less than 2 years later. In short Jenn is amazing and fun and not only a teacher but a friend to every student. She will make anyone become a singer and learn to love it!"

"Jennifer Smolos is a truly fabulous private singing coach. She works wonders with people's voices and has a broad knowledge of repertory to help you find the songs to best suit you. She is kind, enthusiastic, and technically knowledgeable. I would recommend her to anyone."

"Jenn Smolos is a fantastic vocal coach who knows how to get your voice to do things you didn't think possible. She is supportive and encouraging and makes each lesson a positive experience while also being very specific about personalizing the work to your specific needs. I highly recommend."

"Jenn is an excellent teacher. She is very aware of me during my lessons. She is great at critically assessing my voice, and knows just what exercises to work on in order to get my voice to where it needs to be. She is fun, energetic, and knowledgable. I LOVE working with her, and would DEFINITELY recommend her for anyone who wants to improve their voice! She is encouraging and truthful, she doesn't just tell you what you want to hear. She has helped me to accomplish more than I could have imagined."

"I first met Jenn at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts a few years ago. She was the vocal production teacher there and I was told a few very specific things about her. A: that she was sweet and kind (and also very pretty), and B: that she could make anyone sing. "Not me," I thought. "No one could possibly get any type of voice out of me!" However, both things were very true! Once classes had begun, and I heard the voices of my classmates drastically change in front of me, I knew Jenn was different. She could touch the back of you neck, or your chin or your stomach (or whatever it is she does) and suddenly you'd be singing like a little bird! I don't know how she does it... but the girl has the magic touch. She knows what she's doing. After a few very short in-class lessons, Jenn not only gave me the confidence I needed that allowed me to believe in myself, but I actually evolved int someone with a voice. My classmates were always coming up to me in awe afterward and telling me how good I was sounding, and by the end of the year I was one of the better singers in the class. I've studied with a few other coaches as well, but no one has ever given me results that were even close to where I got with Jennifer. Some people will just work what what you've got whereas Jenn will work with your goals, push you to expand your talent and teach you how to get to where you want to be. Whenever I have an audition for a musical, or need to sing in a show, I contact Jenn and I will always contact Jenn. In fact, she helped me book a part just a few months ago!"

"I met Jenn when she was my singing teacher at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and later hired her as my private vocal coach. Jenn literally transformed my voice and the way I thought of singing. She makes everything easy to understand and gives you simple tips and techniques to improve your voice. I could give a higher recommendation. She's simply a fantastic teacher."

"I've been training with Jenn off and on for over two years now. In that time, my voice has grown exponentially freer and more expressive. She has helped me put together a great audition book, full of songs I love to sing and sing well, due to her work with me on technique and performance. Over time, thanks to our preparations, I have also grown more confident in myself and my capabilities, which has directly led to more and more successful musical theatre auditions. I cannot recommend Jenn enough."
