What to expect
A session is usually 45mins or 60mins long. A typical session will consist of warm up and technical exercises, technique and then repertoire and stagecraft if there is a concert scheduled. There are recording facilities here at the studio, which is a whole other facet to undertake and students can record individual songs or an EP if they so wish .Live performance is also encouraged with a concert held annually at the iconic live music venue The Governor Hindmarsh Hotel , specifically for students to showcase their talents on the large stage, in a professional setting and of course, family and friends to celebrate their achievements.
Audition preparation and solo performance is another focus with many students winning places in prestigious schools, WAAPA , NAIDA ACPA and The Conservatorium of Music . This is a constant source of mentoring fulfilment for Jennifer , witnessing students taking those crucial leaps toward their dreams.

What people say
Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, Value
" My daughter Ella(age nearly 10 when started) has been a student with Adelaide Hills Arts since 2017.
She has grown in confidence and learnt many skills and techniques that has enabled her to blossom and find her special voice thanks to Jennifer. Jennifer has embraced Ellas unique personality and performance style with patience and respect at all times. She has challenged Ella to be the best she can be and supported her when Ella has found challenges in songs and belief in her own capabilities.
Jennifer has encouraged Ella and supported her throughout this journey of finding her voice, performing skills and confidence.
I highly recommend Adelaide Hills Arts to anyone who has a passion for singing/music/performing.
Jennifer’s undeniable talent, professionalism, knowledge,
experience, communication and genuine warm supportive nature which my daughter has been lucky enough to experience has no doubt positively influenced her to believe in herself and her talent going forward.
A huge thanks to Jennifer.💓 "
