Our Staff

Leslie Jingluski

Founder and coach, Leslie Jingluski, was trained in vocal performance and spent many years after college in the entertainment industry. She earned her MBA while working in the medical industry and raising a young family. Leslie and her husband, John, live in Quinton and are the proud parents of three children.  After unsuccessfully searching for a program that would share Leslie’s love of music with her children, the idea to start her own was born. The Jingluski family is excited to be in a position to offer this exciting program to performers in the New Kent, Henrico and Hanover area.  We are excited to begin our 6th production!
