Janiece is an incredible teacher. She combines technical prowess and detailed knowledge of the architecture of vocal production with a loving and creative spirit that invites students to open both heart and voice. Working with Janiece has freed up my sound, expanded my range, and helped me to find joy, pleasure and confidence in my singing.

Janiece Jaffe is one of the most sophisticated and compelling musicians I have ever seen. Her inventive, beautiful singing creates sacred space wherever she goes. And when she works with my church choir, she gets everybody listening, moving, and singing very sophisticated circle songs with joy.

Janiece is a master vocal teacher, sound healer, and spiritual mentor.   Her deep knowledge of the physical and spiritual aspects of singing allows her to meet students at their own beginning level, diversifying and catering her instruction according to the learning styles of each individual student.  As Janiece's vocal student, I have found her sound and unique techniques for vocal production and improvisation has led me to view singing not just as melodic tune-making, but a vocal and improvisational playground!! Janiece's sound healing sessions and workshops have revealed a deeper spiritual meaning to my singing and its use in my life to help others.
