Dear Faculty and Students,
ArtistWorks CEO Patricia Butler has been kind enough to forward all your posts about Jeannie to me. My spirits lift as I read all your caring sentiments. I have been Jeannie's husband for 35 years and her manager for the last 25 of those. I want to let you know that Jeannie's last days were peaceful as was her final departure. While I grieve her departure, I remind myself how blessed I am to have lived and worked all these wonderful years with such a life affirming artist.
Jeannie has always been devoted to helping her voice students become the singer they aspired to be and achieving their goals. Before she left us, Jeannie was very relieved to know that Jennifer Truesdale, her good friend and her most expert Deva Method teacher was able to help her Artistworks students. Jennifer is a wonderful person and a consummate professional musician and teacher. I trust her completely to give you the quality of instruction you deserve.
Thanks again to everyone at Artistworks for all they are doing to continue Jeannie's legacy.
