Born and raised in Asheboro, NC, Jonathan “Jay” Smith always knew that music was a part of him. As a teen, Jay Smith began singing in school plays and there is where he found his joy for performance and the stage. Years later, Jay began taking classical lessons as a voice student of Queens University of Charlotte and received his Bachelors of Arts in Music. Today, Jay continues studying voice and is currently a teaching and performing artist throughout the city. He is dedicated to helping students find and grow their voice. He believes in reaching students by focusing on their achievements, instead of solely on where they need improvement.

“When someone finally accomplishes something that they once believed to be impossible, there is no longer anything they cannot dream of doing.” –– Jay Smith
