As a veteran performer and still enamored student of singing, I can only say that it is the lucky singer who finds his or her way to Jean McClelland. She possesses unusual instincts combined with gentle patience and a warm, giving personality. She is unsurpassed in helping individuals discover their true voice. Jean works magic even in the toughest of cases.

Jean is one of the most empowering teachers I have ever learned from. She is a model for what she teaches and what she teaches is the power of being rather than doing.

Jean opens up whole new worlds of possibilities with a few very simple statements, and encourages mental and physical experiences which are the proof and the process of what she has suggested. A very loving, liberating experience.
