Jerusha Baker started working as a musician right out of high school. She got her start as an accompanist, and has been a freelance collaborator throughout her adult life. Having had the opportunity to work in so many voice studios, she discovered her love for the science and psychology of singing.
She received both her Bachelor’s degree in Music Education and her Master’s degree in Vocal Performance from Boise State University. In addition to voice and piano, she played the French horn for many years.
Baker currently works as an Adjunct Voice Professor at Boise State University, as well as maintaining a large private voice studio. Though her primary focus is classical technique, she has incorporated contemporary styles for the last 10 years. She has the continued passion to learn more to help students in all walks of life.
She is a member of Critical Mass Vocal Artists, Opera Idaho Residence Company, and NATS. She serves in multiple capacities at her church, including working with the children and directing the choir. Most of all she loves raising her two children, Jayna and Bryson, with her husband, Scott. In her “spare” time, she loves nothing more than organizing, re-organizing, scheduling, and playing with numbers.
