Jane Keller graduated from The Ohio State University with a Bachelor of Music, Bachelor of Music Education and a Master of Vocal Pedagogy. Although classically trained and with over 30 years operatic experience, Jane's real loves are musical theatre, cabaret and jazz.
Jane's first two one-woman cabaret shows, BIGGER IS BETTER and DO I HAVE TO GET NAKED?, were performed in New Zealand and the U.S. to critical acclaim. BOOMERS BEHAVING BADLY had a three-week sell-out season at Circa Theatre in Wellington and then a hugely successful five-week NZ tour. Jane's most recent cabaret show, YEP, STILL GOT IT!, premiered earlier this year to rave reviews and full houses. Jane will take this show to the U.S. in 2016. Jane, Geraldine Brophy and Michael Nicholas Williams collaborated and performed FLORAL NOTES in Wellington and then toured NZ. Geraldine wrote this show for herself and Jane.
Jane specialises in teaching musical theatre singing styles and repertoire. She has a large private singing studio in Wellington. Jane also teaches singing on the musical theatre course at Whitireia.
Jane has been a long time tutor at the National Singing School. She has also taught at Toi Whakaari: National Drama School and at The New Zealand School of Music in the Jazz School.
Jane lives in Wellington with her husband Richard and their 23-year-old son Sam.
