About Jeannette


My Story (in a Nutshell)


A native of the San Francisco Bay Area, I have been singing and teaching music in one capacity or another for about 30 years. After many years of vocal directing and/or performing in local musical theater shows, singing with local opera companies, teaching music in schools, acting as a director with the San Francisco Girls Chorus and teaching private voice lessons on the Peninsula, I moved to Pleasanton in 2006 and established my home studio, JS Vocal Studio and began teaching Voice lessons in Pleasanton. Currently my focus is teaching private voice and piano lessons in Pleasanton and doubling as a Massage Therapist in San Ramon.

Music Education: San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Bachelor of Music Degree in Vocal Performance; Total Vocal Freedom: Alexander Technique for Voice Teachers, Certificate of Completion.

My Passions (in a nutshell)

I love to sing in the Barbershop (intricate 4-part, stacked harmony) style as well as teaching voice lessons in Pleasanton. I sing "baritone" in a women's competitive Barbershop Chorus in Walnut Creek and also in a quartet called “Ricochet” (pictured here is my former quartet, Craze!). Ricochet Quartet is brand new and we plan to compete in May 2019. My chorus will be participating in the National competition in New Orleans this September, and I am overjoyed to be featured as one of the front row dancers! 

My non-musical passion is Therapeutic Massage (go figure!). Yes I am actually a Certified Massage Therapist (CAMTC #76717) and I practice in my privately owned studio in San Ramon. Please visit www.massagebyjeannettecmt.com for more information about my Therapeutic Massage practice in San Ramon.
