"I was a student with Miss Jackie for three years. In those three years alone, I learned so much about my craft and Miss Jackie inspired me to pursue my love of Musical Theater. Every lesson was a new experience and an incredibly fun one! She encouraged me to audition for plays, musicals, and to take dance classes, which led me to pursuing my Bachelors Degree in Musical Theater performance at Arizona State. I could honestly say that without the encouragement and love that Miss Jackie put into my voice lessons I would not have had the drive to do what I love. Miss Jackie is an incredible voice teacher because she nurtures every student’s dreams and enables them to grow. I am so lucky to have had her as my voice teacher."

“Jackie Maraya Griffin was one of the kindest singing teachers I ever had. When you become one of Jackie's students, you not only become her student, but you become a part of her family. Jackie was always very patient with me. Through her patience and ability to pin point the weakest points in my vocal register, she not only showed me how to broaden my register, but taught me how to control my voice. I would recommend Jackie to any person who has the passion to sing because she's only going to make your voice better and better."

"In these last 3 years as a student of Miss Jackie, I’ve learned the importance on how to use my voice properly. I remember walking into her studio for the first time, I felt blessed and inspired being coached by another Filipina! I could tell she truly cared about my well-being and vocal health. She evaluated my voice so I understood what I needed to practice at home for continued growth. I learned beneficial knowledge about my voice with great support from her. I appreciate Miss Jackie so much for guiding me in my performing arts career."
