My name is Jenna. I am a mum of 2 gorgeous wee kiddies.
I graduated in 2008 from The Australian Institute of Music in Sydney, Australia, with a Bachelor of Music, Majoring in Music Theatre.
I have performed in many productions/soloist roles, both in New Zealand and Australia.
My biggest role was playing Rosalia, and understudied the lead role Maria, in the Australian touring production of West Side Story. I also toured Australia in The Music of Andre Rieu Spectacular show, both as a Soloist and within a Trio.
Other accomplishments have been performing the role of Narrator in Joseph and the Amazing Technicoloured Dreamcoat,(now FOUR Times, most recently in Nov/Dec 2020). Singing a duet with the late Rob Guest on his New Zealand Tour and have worked for Perform Educational Musicals, touring around schools for book week and cyber safety awareness.
Now I have settled in Palmerston North with my family. I have decided to dedicate my time to teaching and helping other achieve their singing goals. I love running Legato Vocals.
Hi, my name is Katie and I’ve been loving singing since I was 3 years old! I started performing on stage when I was 9.
I then attended Helen O Grady Drama Academy for 8 years which helped to spark my passion for performing Arts.
I have since performed in many shows through theatre companies in Palmerston North, Pahiatua and Fielding.
A musical theatre highlight for me was when I got the opportunity to play Belle in the musical "Beauty and the Beast".
I have performed in many different gigs including a multitude of concerts, private functions, weddings and all kinds of parties.
I have also had the opportunity to perform in front of King Charles (Prince Charles at the time) and Camilla.
I started teaching singing students at the age of 16 and have had experience in teaching students on and off for the past 6 years.
After high school I headed to London for a gap year which gave me the opportunity to work in the music department at a private boarding school
(I even got to teach the late Queens grandson).
I now work in Palmerston North as a teacher aide at a primary school.
I am so excited to jump aboard on this new journey with Jenna at Legato Vocals and to pass on my passion/love for singing to you all.
Jenna is an amazing vocal coach! She was brilliant at adapting to my learning style. Being more of a visual learner she worked with me to help achieve what I thought was a impossible note to sing. The best thing I did was contact Jenna and even though it was 3 weeks before my audition, she helped me develop my voice and also land the role in an upcoming musical! I would recommend anyone who is wanting to develop their voice, to get in touch with this amazing vocal coach . Its only been three weeks but my vocal range is stronger! Thank you Jenna
