Joie Bianco, student, Frost School Of Music, University of Miami
Having the opportunity to study with Jane Monheit, over the past year and some, has been nothing short of incredible, and so positive for my career as a working musician. Like so many in the world, I’ve been an excited listener for over 20 years. Little did I know though, how truly supportive, gracious, and unpretentious she would be as a teacher/mentor. That being said, I could write for days about the technical improvements I’ve made as a vocalist. (Too many to list.) Really though, what I observe to have been even more impactful than just that, is the sense of empowerment I feel as a woman in this business. She’s encouraged me continually to trust my instincts as a performer, and to never settle - to surround myself with people that have my very best interest at heart. Jane has the voice of our time, and she’s an even better teacher!
