Jacquie de Jong-Seinen
BMT, MTA candidate
Jacquie has been singing since she was a child. This passion to sing brought her to the Victoria Conservatory of Music to study with Catherine Young, and then to the music program at Vancouver Community College. From here, an interest in health and wellness led her to complete a degree in Music Therapy at Capilano College/Open University in 1997. She has since used her voice and guitar to facilitate healing in a variety of settings. Jacquie has worked extensively with children. She loves their curiosity and playfulness. While raising her family on a small farm in the Cowichan Valley, she is employed as a voice coach/pre-primary music teacher/music therapist and she co-facilitates an elder college singing program and elder choir.
Jacquie is excited about her new position with the Music Therapy Department at the Victoria Conservatory of Music.
