““ Jen de Ness was one of the key artists to be contracted by Artsedge during my time as coordinator from 2000-2001. I found Jen to be a highly skilled professional singer, composer and teacher who had been operating her own Voicedance Workshops for the previous 9 years. Jen has an unfailing ability to provide a fun environment where people can learn and develop creative and artistic skills. She teaches team building, confidence enhancing and self-esteem exercises in a supportive end professional way. Jen is a creative, committed and generous teacher who I recommend highly in any position involving teaching of voice and performance skills, building creative teams and working as an innovative leader and a committed team member. ”

“Jen de Ness is a very creative & dynamic music/drama coach. Jen helped me to tap into my voice & express myself through music. For a long time I believed I couldnt sing, I had no prior training before I attended Jen's 'Voice Dance Singers Workshop' which culminated in a performance & CD launch at the end of the workshop. It remains one of the highlights of my life and I will always be grateful for the opportunity of being part of a most memorable event. The workshop opened up many doors for me and has helped me on a personal & professional level. Highly recommended. ”
