Explore Jennifer’s Groundbreaking “The Art of Singing” Series
“I have read them all, from technical (vocal pedagogy) to psychological music books, but only Hamady combines the most relevant aspects of each and synthesizes them into the *perfect* instructional singing book. She reminds us about the importance of our SELF, physically, intellectually, and emotionally, in teaching ourselves something as pure and innate as healthy singing…” – Michael Chu, Amazon Reader

Frequently Asked Questions
I see that you’re a voice coach, performance consultant, and a therapist. What do you do, exactly?
For Singers, Performers and Public Speakers: Vocal, performance, and emotional issues are always linked together, often without our realization. One of the most important– and enjoyable parts– of my work, therefore, is my ability to look holistically at people, thanks to my work and training as a singer, performer, and therapist. Each client brings unique issues and challenges to our time together, and I draw from all three of my backgrounds as we address and resolve your concerns. You can learn more about my practice and approach on the Meet Jennifer Page.
For Those Interested in Counseling: Given the nature of my work, clients often also want to address the root causes of their performance and personal anxieties–as well as issues related to self-worth, self-expression, and communication– which we explore in therapeutic sessions. Click Here and Here to learn more information about counseling, my licensure and how we might work together in this capacity.
For Writers: I also love my work with authors and writers, supporting them in giving voice to their creations. I am on the faculty of The Writer’s Center in Washington DC, and conduct workshops there and elsewhere on, and entitled, Public Speaking Fundamentals and Reading Your Work Out Loud.
For Corporations: I frequently bring my experience to the corporate realm in workshops, keynote addresses, master classes, retreats and private coachings. My clients are from many organizations across an array of industries, including Google, IDEO, IBM, Merck, The American Bar Association, Kripalu, Psychotherapy Networker Symposium, Wells Fargo, The New York Open Center, American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, and others. Please Click Here to learn more and begin a conversation about how I can support your organization and team.
What does a session look like? What do we work on?
Whether counseling or coaching, no two sessions are alike. In every case, I allow you to lead, while ensuring that we stay on track and gently guiding you where we both want you to go. Our time together will be a blend of talking, voice and performance work, and emotional investigation, always with a sense of levity and play. While our work is confidential, and you are always in a safe space, I never hesitate to challenge you to look more closely, go more deeply, tackle the big (and sometimes scary questions), and grow.
Should I read your books and articles before we work together?
How should I prepare for our time together, and what should I bring?
Singers, it’s a good idea to prepare material from your projects, and for those not currently working on something specific, two songs – one that you love and sing easily and well, and another that challenges you. For those with presentations or speeches on the horizon, bring those with you.
What do you charge?
We’re all different and have our own best ways of working and learning. I’m therefore incredibly flexible when it comes to how we can partner in helping you achieve your goals. In person and online (Zoom, Skype and FaceTime), pricing for individual, personal sessions is as follows (please Contact Me for Corporate and Industry rates and pricing):
Sessions (1 hour / 90 minutes)
$200 / $275
Package of 5 Sessions (1 hour / 90 minutes)
$900 / $1,300
Package of 10 Sessions (1 hour / 90 minutes)
$1750 / $2,500
Quick Consults (By Phone – 30 minutes)
You are welcome to try single session or two, and if you’d like to purchase a package, apply the amount you’ve already paid to the package price.
For those of you interested in working more intensively– a common option for those traveling to work with me, or preparing for a specific engagement– I offer half-day, whole day, and weekend packages in Washington DC and New York City. I love this way of working together… it is intense, intimate, and incredibly effective. My rates for these intensives vary, depending on specifics. I am also available, on an occasional basis, to travel to you. Please contact me to discuss what will work best for you.
Do you offer a sliding scale?
Two great options for those on a budget are email coaching and my online courses, which will be coming soon. My books are also great resources; they lay the foundation for the work we do in my in-person coaching and in my workshops. I’ve also written various articles that will help you on your journey that you can read here on the site.
Other than a session or package, is there a way we can talk or work together?
Thanks to client requests over the years, I’m excited to offer consultations over email. Whether you would like feedback on your singing and songs, or to touch base about personal or professional concerns, email is a great, cost-effective way to begin our journey together. Click here to learn more and to see if our working together this way may be a good fit for you. My rate for this service is 59US for a comprehensive reading/listening and up to two responses.
Similarly, I offer 30-minute phone or Skype consultations for those who would like to see if we are a good fit, or have a quick question or simple issue they’d like some feedback on. My rate for this service is 99US. My online courses – coming soon – are also a great, cost-effective way to learn at your own pace, in your own home. You can also visit my calendar on the home page to see when I’ll be in your area giving workshops or contact me to set up an event at your school or organization.
I also give six Voice and Performance Master Classes a year over Zoom; Click Here to learn more and to register.
I don’t live on the East Coast / in the US. Can we still work together?
Absolutely! My clients are all over the world, and thanks to Zoom, Skype, FaceTime and Google Hangout, we are able to connect as if we were in the same room.
Another option is to travel to work with me in Washington DC or New York City. For out of town clients – and those with recording, touring and other performance projects on the horizon, or anyone who enjoys working more intensively – I’m happy to arrange half-day, full day, and weekend sessions. These are some of my favorite ways to work with you, as we’re not constrained by time and can relax, connect, and dive deep into your issues and quickly achieve what you want to accomplish.
There are a few instances where working in person is superior to working online – For example, if you want to run songs with an accompanist. In these cases, it’s best (and often more cost effective) to hire someone locally, and then you and I can work together to troubleshoot any issues that might come up.
What kind of computer and technology do I need for online sessions?
It’s less critical to have a specific type of computer, tablet, or phone for our work together, and more important that you have a reliable and very fast internet connection.
I’m a teacher and want to learn more about bringing your ideas to my students. Do you offer teacher trainings?
I often work with voice teachers and coaches to help them bring The Art of Singing to life in their own studios. Most teachers choose to book a package of 5 or 10 sessions, during which we explore your own instrument and teaching strengths, empower you with new knowledge and tools, and teach you to lead through listening. Your students hold the key to unlocking their best voices; I will show you how to share your wisdom and passion with others in a way that brings out their very best.
Thanks to your many requests, I am also currently in the process of creating a comprehensive teacher training program. Please sign up for my newsletter and you’ll receive a note as soon as it’s ready to go.
And join me for four Master Classes in 2020 in Washington DC to watch me work with singers one-on-one, as well as to ask any questions you may have from a teaching perspective.
