The studio continues to flourish as Jennifer moves forward in the IVA Teacher Training programme, supporting singers of all levels and stages to develop their vocal confidence and artistry.
From a very early age I have had an interest and involvement in music. But in my 70-odd years have never been able to find the time to try my hand (or should I say voice) at singing until June 2012, when I decided it was time to take a few lessons. That's when I met Jennifer Casby. I had only intended to have half a dozen lessons at the very most, just to see whether I had a good enough singing voice to join a choir. Well, the lessons were so helpful and interesting and I was both surprised and delighted with the progress I made in a very short time. So I've continued with regular lessons to-date. I have no hesitation in recommending Jennifer as a really fantastic tutor - she is highly skilled, very understanding and full of enthusiasm and encouragement. Thank you Jennifer!!!. I've learned so much.

Jenny Casby had a profound effect on my confidence and singing ability in an incredibly short time. I'm a professional musician myself and rarely have I found a teacher who is able to break down such a seemingly complex and baffling task into such simple and manageable steps. Without any technical jargon, Jenny broke down the stages for me quickly and concisely helping me to understand and feel what it was I needed to change to get the results I required. It was like she showed me all the magicians tricks so I could help myself to build my voice. This is a rare talent and I couldn't recommend her more highly. Jenny was a shining star of ability, integrity and enthusiasm. She changed the way I thought about music and gave me incredible belief in myself. Jenny is the right teacher for you. Call her!

I had not sung in public or had a lesson for 10 years when I went to Jenny. I was very apprehensive and nervous about singing again, but Jenny immediately put me at ease and made me feel comfortable. I have been working with her now for just under a year and not only has my range improved, but also my confidence in singing. Since working with her I have not only been confident enough to go to auditions for parts where singing is involved, which she has also helped my prep for, I've also got the roles! Jenny is an amazing teacher and caters lessons to your needs at the time e.g. if you have anything to prepare for she will focus on this or help you choose pieces that suit your voice and capability. I can't believe the difference in my voice in less than 12 months and can't wait to see what the next 12 bring!!!!

I would like to tell you how much my singing lessons with Jennifer has done for my confidence in both my singing and performance abilities within my choir and as a soloist. I attended TheFunkyChoir.Com for many months, and later was offered the chance to have singing lessons with Jenny, our choir leader. I looked at Jenny's website and saw her excellent qualifications and felt confident to try out training with her. Whilst I enjoyed the lessons with my old teacher, I felt with the IVA technique that I advanced better with my breathing and voice control. The fact that Jenny records each lesson and then transfers it to my computer is an added bonus and I continue to practise weekly. I would like to thank Jennifer wholeheartedly for these wonderful lessons!
