Caren Jensen has taught in the Salem-Keizer School District for a number of years and founded the Willamette Girlchoir 18 years ago in Salem, Oregon where she still serves as their Artistic Director. Caren maintains an active voice studio, teaching young developing singers as well as high school, young adults and seniors. She is an active member of MENC, ACDA, and NATS.
The primary focus of Caren’s teaching for the past eighteen years has been with developing the “art of singing” in the young voice through her work with children’s choirs. Caren works with young college students as they embark upon their careers as new teachers of music in the areas of management, vocal health for the young voice and beginning theory for children. Caren has studied conducting with Constantina Tsolainou and Dr. Doreen Rao, as well as Kathryn Olson and Ron Jeffers. She has studied vocal health with Leon Thurman of the Voice Care Network in Minneapolis. Her private vocal teachers include: Mrs. Exine Bailey, Marie Peak, Constantina Tsolainou, Ruth Dobson, and Cynthia McGladrey.
