Jamie Lynn Hart

jhart@berklee.edu | 617-747-6346

I love the fact that my voice and lyrics can inspire someone, and I love that lightbulb moment when a student says, ‘Oh, I’ve been wondering that for so long, and you just explained it to me.'

Aubrey Johnson

akjohnson@berklee.edu | 617 747-6051

"Berklee is an awesome place to study voice, because they want to nurture you—who you are, what you love. They make sure that you have a great musical foundation, as well. They teach you how to be a singer, but also how to read music and direct a band and write a chart and write your own music with intricate harmonies. They take popular music and they make it what classical and jazz have been at conservatories for years."
