From California, all the way across the world to Madrid, Spain, Carmen Jones has thrilled audiences with her vocal power and versatility.
  Jones received years of formal vocal training and she has also shared the stage and recording studio with Jamie Foxx, Jeffrey Osborne, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, Tramaine Hawkins, and local music natives PC Munoz, Derrick Hall, Terrance Kelly and the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir, MC Hammer, Master P. and Dwayne Wiggins.  After graduating from college as an adult student in 2012, Jones was inspired to share her music and vocal knowledge and began teaching lessons to both children and adults.  In addition to teaching Voice Lessons, she continues to perform and tour as a lead vocalist with the R&B Funk band "DejaVu". 

Jones’ easy-going, yet commanding nature and her use of modern teaching technology (she opts to use an iPad and microphone in lieu of a piano), provide each student with more efficient, specific "vocal goal based" routines and therefore better overall lessons and progress.

Lessons are one hour in length and are available at
Studio Déjà Vu, a quaint cottage in El Sobrante, California....or she can come to most "pet-free" locations (within 15 miles of Berkeley zip code, 94705).

Jones' solo skills teaching techniques, along with her notable C3 to C6 range enable her to teach the following important vocal skills:

 

  • Increase Vocal Range
  • Vocal Pitch Control
  • Soloing Style and Technique
  • Vocal Strengthening (Breathing, Holding Notes, etc.)
  • How to Command an Audience 
  • How to Prepare for Audition and Performance
