Jennifer Andrews, Voice
Jennifer’s interest in music started at an early age, beginning with piano lessons at age 8, and voice lessons at 13. Growing up around a mother whose love of Rodgers and Hammerstein was unbridled, she learned to love the classic musicals, hoping to emulate their wonderful voices. Her first performance came at the age of 13 when she was cast as “Betty” in her school’s production of “Killroy Was Here”. Jennifer grew up in New Orleans and attended Ursuline Academy where she extended her love of music into her academics, earning a seat on the student council as the president of the Ursuline choir. She also performed the role of “Countess” in Ursuline’s first ever opera production ‘The Marriage of Figaro’ during her junior year. During her time in high school, she performed at numerous vocal competitions, and was offered scholarships to several Louisiana colleges, including the University of New Orleans and LSU.
Jennifer went on to study at the University of Louisiana in Lafayette, focusing on classic vocal performance and education including classes on vocal pedagogy, diction for singers, opera workshops, and music theory. She performed in many different stage productions performed at ULL including “Carmen”, “The Mystery of Edwin Drood”, “The Mikado”, and more. Jennifer also competed throughout her college career, earning 3rd place in the tristate area in her category at the NATS competition. With 8 years of piano lessons and 10 plus years in vocal training, Jennifer is excited and ready to teach and learn from her students and hopes to be a positive guide as they blossom their creativity. Jenn currently teaches Pre-K & Kindergarten Music at St. Pius and is a guest choir instructor at Episcipol School of Acadiana's Upper School in Cade.
