JdC Voice is a singularly run vocal studio in Brooklyn, New York. It's founder, Jenisa de Castro, is passionate about teaching singing techniques that strive towards discovering the unknown. Each voice is different, and unique, and it is our job to uncover the mystery and fly beyond what we think we are capable of.
As a graduate of New York University's Tisch School of the Arts with a major in Drama, Jenisa has discovered much about her own voice, and has continued to study and explore with renowned vocal instructors such as Seth Riggs, Michael Goodrich, and her own father, Gregg de Castro.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
JdC Voice is very dedicated to first making sure the student feels comfortable and safe in the workspace and with the teacher. The next step is to learn about the student's voice and their tendencies, and then to develop upon one thing at a time and keep stemming from there. Through various vocal exercises, we really hone in on vocal coordination until it is strong enough to where we can really begin to stretch and challenge it.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Jenisa began vocal and dance lessons when she was only six years old, becoming a professional Polynesian performer at the age of 12. She quickly became entranced with the world of theater and film and discovered that nothing provides the spiritual fulfillment that comes with exploring the life of someone else, experiencing the world through their unique perspective, if only for a short while. After four rigorous years at NYU Tisch School of the Arts, where she earned a degree in drama, she found that, in addition to theater and film, there is personal fulfillment in any form of art, as long as you invest your whole self into the process. This discovery led Jenisa back to where she started: a small voice studio - but, now Jenisa assumes the role of teacher, eager to share her gifts and insights with students of her own.
