Jennifer John has completed her first term as a lecturer at The Royal Northern College of Music.
The RNCM is a leading international conservatoire located in the heart of Manchester, with a reputation for attracting talented students, teachers, conductors and composers from all over the world.
“After having been invited to deliver a masterclass early in 2018 to the Pop Degree students at RNCM, Andy Stott head of the department offered me a part time position there. What an honour that was! I was asked to have a dual role; one as vocal coach to some of the 3rd and 4th year students and also to deliver advice and create opportunities for Professional Engagement. To be able to share my passion for creativity and my knowledge as a business woman with like minded students from all over the world was a dream job. As well as teaching them, I learned so much myself. I learned about their different approaches to music making and I also discovered a wealth of new music that they were listening to which was inspiring and very exciting. My ever expanding playlist is an eclectic mix of global heaven. Teaching is a privilege; one based on trust and resonance. To be able to impart knowledge that will assist another person getting closer to where they wish to be is amazing. I have no doubt that the successes of all of the students I had the good fortune to work with will be visible for all to see in the not too distant future.”
With a heavy heart Jennifer also bid farewell to Unilever Ltd where she had worked for 4 years with a group of scientist forming ‘Sunlight Unplugged’ a unique choir who went on to win a local (Liverpool) Choir competition. Thank you for an amazing 4 years all. Good luck to Amy Chalmers who will now take over as Choir leader. we hope you have as much fun as Jennifer has Amy, working with this special group of very lovely, talented and clever people.
