Bryn Jimenez – Soprano
Dramatic soprano Bryn Jimenez has taught students of all ages, levels, and backgrounds for over a decade. Her instruction emphasizes solid vocal technique – breath management, phonation, resonance, and articulation – as a foundation for all genres of repertoire. Lessons also include exercises for alignment, elements of Vibrant Voice Technique, and coaching on language and performance practice, as needed.
Many of her students perform in musical theatre productions and choirs. Her school-age students have auditioned successfully for NYSSMA and Trinity College exams, TMEA and TPSMEA Choirs, UIL District and State Solo & Ensemble contests, and college music degree programs.
Ms. Jimenez holds certification from the Victoria Conservatory of Music’s Teacher Training Program, which emphasizes pedagogy and appropriate repertoire for voices of all levels and stages of physiological development. She also holds degrees in Vocal Performance from The Victoria Conservatory of Music in conjunction with Camosun College and from the Vancouver Academy of Music in conjunction with Thompson Rivers University. Since graduation, she has continued to train privately with teachers and coaches in the United States and Germany. She currently studies with New York-based voice teacher Dr. Claudia Friedlander and coaches regularly with Dr. Ana Maria Otamendi at the University of Houston.
As a performer, Ms. Jimenez has appeared in operas, oratorios, concerts, and recitals in North America and Europe, and has received several awards and scholarships from organizations in the United States and Canada.
