"The past year working with Jamie has improved my performance skills immensely. I have just made my professional debut in Chicago The Musical and the coaching that Jamie provided during the audition process was phenomenal. Not only was the focus on vocal/acting techniques, but building up my confidence and professionalism. I have learnt so much and I am extremely grateful for the guidance, knowledge and support from JLC."

Passionate Coaching Performance Arts Professional

Jamie Long has been dancing and singing for over 20 years being trained by some of the industry's finest. Jamie began her arts journey with Melbourne Dance eXchange (MDX). She trained in a range of styles as well as being a member of their Elite Training Team, performing for festivals and Starlight Foundation. This sparked her passion for becoming an all-rounded performer. She then continued her training at The Australian Conservatoire of Ballet refining her skills and focus in Contemporary and Ballet specifically Vaganova-Based Training.

Jamie has also trained in musical theatre studying at the VCA in their Music Theatre Studio Course, 2015, and ShowFit, 2016. Her credits include Little Shop of Horrors (Crystal), Fame (Iris Kelly), and The Addams Family (Spanish Gypsy Ancestor). Her most notable roles include “Maria” in The Sound of Music to “Heather Chandler” in the Victorian Amateur Premiere of Heathers. 


Her love for musical theatre and dance led her to choreograph and coach in the last 7 years. Jamie has choreographed a school competition piece, conducted a 180 girl choir on the stage of Hamer Hall, Arts Centre Melbourne (1st place) in 2015. She has also choreographed a few shows including, Altona City Theatre’s sold-out season Alice in Wonderland: The Pantomime in 2016.

Currently, Jamie works as a resident teacher with CentreStage Performing Arts Academy (CPAA) in Geelong. Having a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Teaching (Secondary) from the Australian Catholic University, Jamie currently works as a full-time VIT registered teacher while working with JLC students outside of school hours because she is passionate about vocal health and producing great singers. She has worked with various schools, directing, vocal directing, and choreographing shows. She has also completed the Estill Level 1 and 2 Training course and is a qualified Vocal Health First Aider. 


Jamie believes in creating and maintaining well-rounded performers with an in-depth knowledge of proper technique, musicality, physicality, stage presence, and especially vocal health.


Her principles of Unlock, Unblock, Perform mean a lot to the companies vision and what it always wants to be associated with. To put it simply, in order to emote on stage truthfully, we have to be vulnerable and ready to give everything to the audience. Unlocking any tension. Unblock any issues that cause unease and discomfort. Perform like your heart, soul and mind depend on it. Because the moment you can master that, the truth is effortless.


JLC is passionate about keeping singers safe. The Vocal Health First Aid Qualification is a new achievement, taking a step in the right direction to achieving our goals of guiding students with safe vocal practise to ensure a strong and healthy instrument.

Vocal Health First Aid


We are always striving to help people who reach out and take the opportunity.
