Christine Johnston - Scituate Schools Choir Director
"It isn't often that a teacher has the pleasure of working with and nuturing a student who is what I call, "The complete package." Intelligence, passion, outstanding talent, dedication, respect and incredible drive are all part of who Jackie is on a daily basis. You just can't fake this stuff. In my 30 years of teaching singing, she is one of the few who I still make reference to as an example of someone who is going to make it in the real world. She "lives" music and I know I am a better music educator partly because I was Jackie Tirocchi's chorus teacher!"
Sydney - Scituate, RI
"I have experienced many vocal teachers and instructors during my time as a singer, but Jackie is one of the best. She teaches her students the many things that factor into how your voice comes out. Her lessons in proper breathing techniques, the anatomy of the throat and how to relax yourself to produce the best sound, are extremely helpful and unique to her, thus far in my singing career. She doesn't only teach her students the proper way to sing, but helps them become better people. Jackie is not only a teacher to me but a mentor and role model."
David Wilson, BFA Review: Carmen at Eagle Hill
"In Act III, the Card Scene absolutely shined. Vocally and dramatically the gypsies, Mercedes and Frasquita, wonderfully contrasted their good fortune against Carmen's ominous reading of death. The whole arc of the story turns on those cards. That's great theatre on any stage, but Eagle Hill I could almost read the cards myself. Encore!"

"Jackie is an amazing vocal and life coach. Her holistic ways of approaching how she is going to teach you really make the difference. Along with teaching you how to sing, proper breathing techniques, and piano playing she also looks at what’s going on in your life. Your diet, exercise, work, and family life can all affect how we sing believe it or not. Taking care of you is the number one thing in having a healthy and successful voice, and also digging deep into that mindset of I can sing or I can do this is what she encourages constantly. She is very flexible with scheduling, she comes to your house or you can go to her studio or sometimes even skyping if you are away. Her method of teaching is very calm, you never feel pressured or embarrassed about anything; she always asks what you are comfortable with. Whenever I leave a lesson I feel very positive and I feel I am that much closer to my goal. She will make the lessons about you and personalize them, she asks your goals, gives practice guides, and determines what needs to be done depending on your skill level, I am a complete beginner and so far I love it! I highly recommend Jackie to anyone looking for vocal, health, life coaching, you won’t regret it!"
"If you're looking for vocal lessons all you have to do is search Google and you'll have plenty of available options. The real question is whether you're looking for a vocal lesson or if you're looking for life changing experience? Thanks to the advice of a good friend, who's also a highly respected musician I decided to schedule a session with Jaclyn. Today, over a year later, I not only use Jaclyn Leigh Mezzo as my coach, but also for the coach of my two girls who are both students enrolled in award winning theater programs. It should tell you something about this person that she has not only earned the trust and respect of a musician but even more so the trust of a dad. I can't stress enough that there is will be nothing standard or ordinary about our experience with Jaclyn. Working with Jackie is not only about your development as a musician but also your development as an individual. Don't take my word for it, schedule a session with this brilliant coach and see for yourself."

"You have such an amazing voice and are sure a great performer and colleague. I will one day say about you, "I knew her when...!" Please come and sing with us again!"
