“Operation Welcome You Home has been honored to have JoEllyn sing the National Anthem at many of our Missions. JoEllyn sings with her heart and with her beautiful voice. It is the most emotional rendition of the Anthem we have experienced. Words cannot express our gratitude and appreciation for her tremendous and heartwarming performances for our Military Heroes!”

“Ms. Caulfield brilliantly performed my song cycle, A Winter Come, last year during my residency at Northern Illinois University. This six-song cycle on poems by Howard Moss, former long-time poetry editor of the New Yorker, has become a standard in the repertoire of contemporary art songs and I have heard it performed many times since its premiere in 1967.”

“Ms. Caulfield’s rendition was among the finest ever. She exhibited a gorgeous voice and superb musicality throughout her performance. Her vocal artistry is remarkable.”

“After years of piano, trumpet, and euphonium lessons, I found my niche in music with Ms. Caulfield. I joined choir my senior year of high school, and later realized that it was one of my best high school decisions. Through choir, I easily signed up for lessons at school which fit conveniently into my schedule. With JoEllyn’s encouragement and vocal training, I was able to audition and receive a college scholarship after only five months of lessons. Singing in front of my peers became much easier, and learning stage presence boosted my confidence in other areas of life. ”

“While trying to balance both long hours in a gym and performing as a solo acoustic artist, I experienced two bouts of significant vocal damage. After finishing vocal therapy for the second time, and after making some lifestyle changes I didn’t make the first time around (no more long hours in a loud volleyball gym), my doctor suggested I take voice lessons and treat them as a continuation of therapy. I was skeptical. Regardless of all the reassurance I was given, I was really afraid that taking vocal lessons would completely change my style of singing. JoEllyn acknowledged and understood my apprehension and really took the time to understand my style as an acoustic singer/songwriter and never pushed me in a direction I wasn’t comfortable with. The techniques I learned with JoEllyn have been such an asset to vocal health and style. Long story short, I am a year removed from my lessons and they have paid off in ways I never thought they would when I began, and my belief is reaffirmed show after show ”
