Who are we?
Jackie Hole until now has remained a best kept secret. Singing since the age of 4, Jackie was once told that she couldn’t have a singing part in a school play when because ‘nobody wants to hear that voice‘ (she was 7)
With confidence knocked, Jackie became a legend in her living room instead mimicking her favourite pop stars behind closed doors. In her late teens she plucked up the courage to perform in local bands gaining early recognition but the lack of confidence turned into a bad case of stage fright that eventually became so stressful that Jackie stopped singing. (for over 20 years!) and pursued a career in internet marketing – earning the European Search Personality of the Year Award in 2014
The music would not stop calling, so that year Jackie took a 5 Day vocal course at the Complete Vocal Institute in Copenhagen. Within one lesson the school were so impressed with her vocal ability they invited her to join the prestigious 3 year Complete Vocal Teacher Training Course and the rest is history.

Extreme Vocal Effects

Only when you have full control of the effects can you truly master them!

The old adage ‘those that can’t do, teach’ does not ring true with plenty of singing teachers – most great vocal coaches have either had a career or have had extensive performance experience – singing in your bedroom is a completely different experience to singing in a studio or live on stage so if you want an active singing career – it may be a good choice to pick a teacher that can show you great sound examples along the way and has extensive live performance experience
