Here is one of my followers on YouTube talking about my channel!

I can’t thank you enough for being there for me! The first thing that comes to mind is that you are a Godsend! I felt so lost and in need of help to prepare for this vocal audition. I couldn’t remember what to do with my voice and how to achieve those high notes in such a short period of time. I was truly challenged. The experience of just working with you and the magic that you were able to create in just an hour session via Skype is just amazing. I am so thankful for you and for the fact that you can share yourself and your talents worldwide…especially with those of us all the way in another timezone! Thank you for being so generous! You taught me in such an encouraging and nurturing way…it was the most supportive feeling and it really touches me to think about that! All I can say is that I am so thankful for you…I am so glad that I found you…and I truly look forward to our future lessons together because now that I have found you there is no way I am losing you!
Because of you I stood up with confidence and gave a GREAT audition. I left with my head high instead of feeling those feelings of “I wish I had another chance, I would do or could do better”. I know I sounded great! And with those bands of “light” coming from my hands, I know I touched someone!
So thank you from the bottom of my heart! You are truly amazing!
Your new NY student,
Hi Jill Jaxx,
I just received your ebook, The Mind of a Singer, last night and read it again for the second time and will read it again.
I think I was a right-brained person trapped in a left-brained world. My mother told me that when I began to write, I would hold the pencil in my left hand and, for some reason, the pencil was always taken out of my left hand and I was instructed to write using my right hand. I was “guided” by teachers, professors, counselors, etc. into a 30-year career path that veered away from any creativity which was part of my core being. As a result, I believe I’ve been severely stifled from the lost usage of my right brain (I even think the right side of my face is partially paralyzed now..lol). Perhaps all of the negativity surrounding me entering into the right brain has made me feel it’s “wrong” to go there.
Your ebook has given me the freedom to feel free again…
Hello, again, right brain…we’re gonna have some fun!
Nice to hear from you. My voice is improving in strength and gaining flexibility after following your advice and I want to capitalise on that by having a more structured warm up so I’m looking forward to receiving your cd’s!
I follow your uTube posts, they are always so uplifting and interesting, so please keep up the good work!
You saw my faults right away!! One of the major being that I push too much air and you taught me in a few minutes how to change that. Second was support and you taught me exactly how to use the correct support since even support I was doing incorrectly after lessons with other teachers and reading online. Third was how to put finesse into my singing. So my singing has taken a huge turn for the better!! I am now singing with feeling, resonance, and hitting high notes with no tension all of this after one half-hour lesson with you. Thanks so much, Jill!
Note from Jill: Listen to Steve sing on his MySpace site: MySpace.com/PieceOfCheverie.
I must tell you that I enjoyed your class immensely! You are an awesome teacher and a lot of fun. I still cannot get over that I actually stood up in a group and sang versus from Evita, acapella! And, felt safe and comfortable doing so – you created that environment!
I wanted to tell you I used your DVD for several weeks before trying out for a nun in Sound of Music with our J.C. Little Theatre. I got the part, my first musical experience! Thank you so much!
I send to you more than appreciable words of thanks. Your learn-to-sing-better and fast e-news letter has so far worked tremendously in me and I see changes in each step/advice you send. I hope you continue with more tips.
Hello again Jill, Just wanted to tell you that my DVD arrived. It’s wonderful… I have been singing and training in singing for 15 years, and have studied with a few really good teachers, plus read volumes on all sorts of techniques over all those years. I also teach. You are an amazing teacher. I’m telling you this so you will take this as the complement it is. Very, very helpful video. Thanks again.
Dear Ms. Jaxx,
Thank you very much for your excellent video, Learn to Sing Better Fast. I received it yesterday and I have watched it twice. Your tips have helped me in so many ways already. You have a great way of explaining methods so they are easy to understand and to remember. If you make more instructional videos, please let me know.
I’m happy that you considered me one of your students. I’ll keep you posted on my progress. My goal at this point is to sing well enough that my cats don’t leave the room when I go for the high notes! Thank you, again. And thank you for the speedy service.
Best of luck with your current movie projects.
Hi, I just want to say this channel has some of the best singing instructional videos online. Very straight forward and I could almost immediately notice my voice sounding a little nicer and easier to sing.
Yup I got your message. Thank you sooooo much you really helped me out. You’re the best. WOW YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH YOU HELPED ME!!!! thank youuuu.
Well first of all, your videos helped me tons! I knew I could trust what you said and realized using the tips in them they actually worked!
Second, the “Imagine a sparkling golden light…” thing worked fantastically. When I was feeling nervous or unsure I would use that technique and the sick feeling in my stomach would dissapear so I felt great and ready to sing!
Last, was the fact that you actually wrote back to me! Not many people would take time off their day to help other people by using their own experience. I have also noted that you help other people when they comment on your videos too, that seems really nice of you.
P.S. I performed on thursday and it went great! I loved the feeling of being on stage!
I wanted to write something that you could put up on your website that is specifically for those people that are considering taking a private lesson from you. You know how much you’ve helped me and danalyn with your lessons – we both sing better now and look forward to getting even better still. Our Knightlyghter band practices sound so much better now! Any way, here’s my “testimonial” for you to post:
After having been a student in Jill’s class at LA Harbor College and also having received a few private lessons, there’s something that I must say about taking lessons from Jill; they’re so totally worth it.
I’ve read books, I’ve watched videos, and I’ve had my friends tell me how to sing. But I’d never improved. No matter what I did, I just never got better. My tone was nasally, I’d slide up to pitch and then couldn’t hold it there, and my range was very limited. The experience of having a pro guide me along and tell me exactly what I was doing that hampered my voice from coming out and what to do to allow it to happen is invaluable.
I’ve watched Jill work with others and I’ve noticed how she works with me. On the one hand she treats everyone the same. She’s kind, ecouraging, and supportive. She listens, she watches carefully how you’re singing. And then she explains what you are doing and what you should be doing. She gives you excercises that bring out the best in you. And that’s the “other hand” that makes taking a lesson from Jill so great – she treats everyone as a unique individual.
“Jill showed us the secret to breathing correctly, and increased all of our vocal ranges as well as our self-confidence. One alto now even sings soprano! We loved studying with her!”
“Jill has the ability to convey ideas so that even five-year-olds can understand them. Now over 100 of our young singers know how to sing correctly. And boy can you hear it in our performances! Best of all, she makes learning fun!”
“Jill is a magical teacher who is able to communicate, educate, and bring out the best in singers. She created special musical programs for our school that were highly acclaimed and led to our doing a recording for an off Broadway musical!”
“Jill worked nothing short of miracles at our song and dance camp. Teaching younger singers to breathe properly and connect their head and chest voices can take months or even years. Jill had them doing it after one lesson.”
“Jill, like a musical surgeon, was able to instantly diagnose and correct our group’s bad singing habits—ones that were really hurting our performances. And now we’ve never sounded better!”
thank you for taking me to the next level of singing! After your skype lessons my voice became more flexible. In a short period of time you helped me to discover the potential of my voice and you fixed my problems very quickly. Besides, you inspired me to move on singing and creating!! You are professional and you put so much love and caring into your teaching. I'm very blessed and honored to work with you and always looking forward for a new skype lesson!!
Sincerely yours, Inga Lukas
You are the best here on YouTube, and probably anywhere also, thank you. I really want to sing, need all the help I can get.
Thank you for this another great video, I hope you continue doing that, I really love your videos!
