About Jeanne Masterman

Jeanne graduated from University of Massachusetts, Lowell in 1991, Summa Cum Laude, with a Bachelor of Music degree in Voice Performance.  (She also holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Journalism from Boston University.)  She began taking voice lessons in 1982. Her teachers were Barbara McClosky, a well-known voice therapist, and Eunice Alberts, who had a stunning career as an opera and oratorio soloist.  Jeanne also took graduate courses in music education and developing the child voice at University of Massachusetts,  Lowell, and University of St. Thomas, Minnesota.

 

A member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS), she has continued her education through her organization's journal and workshops.  She has also attended workshops for voice teachers at Massachusetts General Hospital and Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary.  Although classically trained, she has attended many courses concerning musical theater and pop singing styles.


Jeanne has taught private voice lessons since 1991.  She teaches students from second graders through mature adults.

 

She has been the soloist at performances of major works presented by Westford Chorus, University of Mass.-Lowell, and for several area churches.  She was a substitute music teacher for the Westford Public Schools, and teaches voice classes in community education programs. 

 

For more than 10 years she and soprano Beth Fowler, with pianist Rachel Muller, have performed as the trio "ClassiGals," which has presented programs of classical art songs for children for area libraries and organizations.


Recently, Jeanne and Rachel joined with singer Laurie Oliver to form the trio "Cantabile."   The trio has assembled a group of art songs (poems set to music by classical composers).  Cantabile's programs are suitable for adult and teens, especially for libraries that are observing National Poetry Month (April).
