Overview

Greetings!

My name is Jennifer and I am a Music Educator! I am an Arizona native and have been involved with music my whole life. I have played the clarinet for 14 years and recently graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education. I also hold an Associate's Degree in Music from Eastern Arizona College and a teaching certification in instrumental music education. I reside in Tempe, Arizona and I am currently a high school band director in Mesa, AZ. I have experience with performing in a variety of ensembles including symphony orchestra, concert band, jazz band, small ensembles, and my favorite- marching band!

I currently perform with the Mesa Community College Community Band in Mesa, Arizona.


*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is very student oriented. I teach students of all ages and ability levels. Whether you are preparing for an audition, want to improve a specific technique, or are just starting out I can give you all the tools you need!

I teach lessons with every aspect of music in mind. This includes rhythmic exercises, tone production, sight reading, embouchure development, and much more. I also give my students the artistic freedom to chose what style/genre of music they are interested in performing.

I hold my students to high standards and expect them to practice and be prepared for all lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music Stand, Tuner, Metronome

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect students to provide their own instrument and repertoire. I will bring my own instruments/recordings, and any other materials needed to teach.

*** Specialties ***
I align my lessons with the National Standards for Music Education. I believe theory, singing, and aural skills are all a very important part of learning an instrument and I incorporate those into all of my lessons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great teacher We had just three lessons to prepare for a concert and Jennifer did a great job. She explained timing and tone in a way that was easy to understand. If we decide to continue lessons we would definitely want her to be the teacher! May 8, 2012
