Jacquie has been singing since she was in her early teens. She was
involved in choral singing and sang solo's opening for the Victoria
Police Choir and other local bands. She studied under Catherine Young
at the Victoria Conservatory of Music. At Vancouver Community College
she studied classical voice with Dr. Jacob Hamm where she had many
opportunities to perform with other singers and actors. Jacquie
completed a Degree of Music Therapy from Capilano College. She went
on to work in a variety of settings using her voice as a healing
modality. She also began to teach music and particularly singing and
ear training to children in a number of community centre's in
Vancouver. After relocating to the island, she continued teaching
music as a Kindermusik educator at the Musicalia studio in Oak Bay.
When Jacquie isn't singing to her daughters as a homeschooling parent
she can be heard singing with Encore Women's Choir. Jacquie is
excited about collaborating with other expressive arts performers and
teachers at Adage this year.
