– Student Feedback from Musical Improv course

Jennifer Jordan
Hi there, lovely to meet you.
Thanks for stopping by, you can find out about me and my practise below, or sign up to my mailing list to hear about new projects, content and classes.
About Me
I am a teaching artist with practise in Improvisation, Acting, and Songwriting. My relationship with performing began when I was very small and led me through: An Acting degree at Bretton Hall; 4 years of Regional & National open air tours of Shakespeare and Jane Austen; Various webseries – including ongoing collaboration with Anna Rose James investigating Shakespeare’s sonnets; And so far has landed me in the land of Improvisation, thanks to my 18 months living in Vancouver.
My ethos as a teaching artist: Everyone deserves the same opportunities and respect in class. I’m positive and energetic, as I believe encouragement is the best motivator. My teaching practise is continually evolving, with focus on how best to empower students to take artistic risks and feel supported in a group. I will always offer a number of feedback routes for anything which does not feel comfortable in class and encourage students to always put their own wellbeing first. Learning and developing skills should be joyful, challenging & inclusive – and that is what I aim for. Read my class Code of Conduct here
