Manda S.

Boston, MA

About Manda

As a graduate of the Baldwin Wallace Conservatory and Boston University Metropolitan College, Manda has obtained a diverse education in performance and performing arts management. As a clarinetist, Manda has performed in Illinois, Alabama, Ohio, and Massachusettes as a soloist, chamber musician, and in large ensembles. Her performances have been well received for their diverse programming and superior musicianship and technique.

Manda began teaching clarinet and piano in 2008 while she was still in high school. She began with beginning and intermediate musicians and quickly received the op
portunity to coach advanced players at one of Illinois' top high school band programs. While studying in Ohio, she began teaching clarinet and piano at the Joyful Noise Neighborhood Music School. There she continued to have one of the largest studio classes of both instruments for two years. Currently, Manda continues teaching in Boston, MA through Takelessons and Musika as well as through her own personal network.

Outside of her performances and teaching, Manda has held positions as a fundraiser and administrator at the Verb Ballet company in Ohio, the Boston University Tanglewood Institute in Massachusettes, the Brooke Charter Schools in Massachusettes, as well as the New England Historic Genealogical Society. Using her skills learned in these positions, as well as from working with mentor Dr. David Cutler, Manda uses an entrepreneurial and logistical mind set when running Manda's Music. You will be met with a professional atmosphere and efficently run lessons and administration.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect to have their at-home-work as well as practice techniques written out in a journal for their reference every week. We will begin working slowly so the student and I feel comfortable with each other, as well as with the instrument. Each student is different, so there is no timeline that is set to work from. We work at a pace that is comfortable yet continuously challenging for the student. Over all, Manda works to acheive her goal for students to gain an appreciation for music, and look forward to coming to lessons each week.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The lesson spaces include stands, pianos, and chairs.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide pens, pencils, metronome, tuner, and small repair equipment. I expect students to bring their instrument (for clarinet only), assigned music, assignment journal, and specified instrument equipment (i.e. reeds, swab, cork grease, etc).

*** Specialties ***
Classical music, popular music, and beginning jazz.

Jill G.

Roslindale, MA

About Jill

I've been in and around music all my life. I started violin at age 5, part of the first generation of Suzuki violinists in the United States. I've loved being a professional violinist and violin teacher for over 30 years! And I've also founded and directed three community music schools in Newburyport, Boston, and Manhattan.

I hold Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Violin Performance, and I'm lucky to have had wonderful experiences during my formal training! In my undergraduate years, I was awarded a full 4-year scholarship for string quartet and chamber music playing, which was invaluabl
e as a real-world training. In graduate school, I was fortunate to learn so much as a Teaching Assistant for undergraduate violin students.

I have also been an innovator in musical education, and I've felt honored to coach numerous already gifted violin teachers who have sought me out to improve their techniques for best teaching practices. From my 30+ years of private violin teaching and observing how children learn, I developed a super fun groundbreaking class in New York City for 2.5 to 5 year old beginners called Crackerjack Kidz! And a few years ago, I wrote a text to accompany young students and their families.

I continuously work to be a master teacher dedicated to the very best methods, using a variety and combination of techniques and strategies tailored to the student's musical success and enjoyment.

My specialties include music-based early childhood development, adult beginners and continuing learners, intermediate and advanced players, and chamber music coaching.

I welcome you to start your family's musical journey with me!

*** Lesson Details ***
While each lesson is different, we always try to spend a little time warming up, making sure we're comfortable and free of tension, reviewing what we've worked on, and layering in new concepts each time. We also learn age appropriate music theory (the "why's" of how music works), we exercise our imaginations, and we learn how to effectively practice.

We learn to think, solve problems, hear the music in our minds, and coordinate our bodies to play beautifully! Along the way we learn skills for life, the joy of accomplishment, and love of ourselves and others!

Whether you're a toddler or a senior, violin can always teach new things and help students appreciate more about themselves and the world!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room with keyboard and computer. Parents can sit it on lessons, and are enouraged to do so with young students.

*** Specialties ***
I'm a classically trained violinist and a master teacher with over 30 years of experience. I've been teaching Suzuki violin to children ages 3 and up for my whole career, and I'm also extremely comfortable with traditional methods for beginner, intermediate, and advanced students of any age.

My specialties include:
music-based early childhood development
adult beginners and continuing learners
intermediate and advanced players
chamber music coaching.

My first lesson in many many years! You may as well say I was a beginner. As an adult learner, I need a type of instruction that will leave me motivated to continue and Jill was just PERFECT. Knowledgeable, patient, she uses tricks and techniques to facilitate learning. I learned so much in just the first lesson. I am very motivated to continue and to get to a point where I can actually play!

My son Kyle is a beginner guitar player. He is currently being homeschooled, as the result of being pulled out of a local elementary school, as the result of bullying. He has been thru a LOT emotionally, and we are slowly helping him to recover from the emotional damage.
Putting yourself out there with something new like this, and leaving yourself vulnerable are things that are difficult for him right now.
Ben has been so professional, caring, and patient with Kyle. I believe he will help him find the passion in this beautiful instrument, and the confidence to express his feelings and enjoy the art of music.
Thank you Ben!!

Jake is quite good. He is easy to talk to and understands what I expect
to get from these lessons. We discussed aspects of learning which included
how to hold the guitar, hand position, etc. He gave me exercises to
practice and we played together given what I already know. I enjoyed the
first lesson very much and would recommend him.

Kelly will bring her love of music to every lesson. Her enthusiasm is contagious and very motivating for her students. She is always 100% present in mind, body and soul for her lessons and considers her students an extended family. Kelly tailers her lessons to suit her students age, personality, ability and lifestyle. Kelly will challenge her students and teach them to love and appreciate music. My daughter grew to love Kelly and she has become a lifelong friend.

When three different people tell you they have the best piano teacher in the world and it ends up that they all take from the same teacher, you tend to listen. That is how we came to find Kelly Jenkins (Miss Kelly) when we moved to a new area. Her business card said “Gift of Music Piano Lessons” and spoke of developing each child’s individual gift for music. One friend confirmed this claim and commented how her children actually wanted to practice for Miss Kelly. That seemed a bit hard to believe at first. But in the three years we were blessed to learn from Miss Kelly, we found this to be true—not only for my son and daughter that took piano lessons from her, but for my younger children who got excited about music and piano from watching their older siblings and being cared about by Miss Kelly.

Miss Kelly has an excellent knowledge of music—both performance and theory. But more importantly for a teacher, she is able to convey that knowledge in a positive, effectual way. Perhaps this is due in part to being the oldest of ten children. But from whatever source, she is able to teach and correct in a way that leaves the learner feeling empowered, not diminished. She is very friendly, professional, and respectful. We were looking for a teaching experience that was not overly stringent but that would develop a solid musical foundation for a lifetime of music love and service. We are very happy with Miss Kelly’s ability to provide that.

Needless to say, when Miss Kelly moved, we were sad to see her go. Yet we are still able to maintain a friendship—even across the country. We have even been blessed to hire her, on occasion, as a consultant when music questions have arisen that we knew she could help with.

In short, we highly recommend Miss Kelly.

I met Kelly Jenkins several years ago when she became my children's piano teacher. For several years she taught my three youngest children--who had very different needs and interests--with skill, compassion, and enthusiasm. My youngest was a beginning piano student, my son was slightly more advanced but quirky with special needs, and my older teen daughter was a singer who wanted to improve her understanding of music theory and challenge herself through piano study.

One of Kelly's finest traits is her ability to understand, respect, and nurture individuals based on their needs and interests. She didn't teach piano--she taught children. She didn't come with a specific set of piano books that each child needed to work through. She came with many ideas, a listening ear, and positive reinforcement. My children not only liked Kelly, they LOVED her and knew she loved them back.

Kelly helped my children select music that interested yet challenged them. She organized recitals, then thoroughly prepared my children so they had successful performing experiences. This included teaching them how to bow, giving them opportunities to perform in the recital location before the audience arrived, and offering lavish praise afterwards. She also gave my children vision by exposing them to more advanced students, including professional musicians.

Over the years that Kelly came to our home (did I mention she came to us?! What a blessing for me, a busy mom!), she was always professional and friendly. She was on time and rarely cancelled lessons. If she needed to cancel, she did so ahead of time and offered alternate arrangements. She kept me apprised of my children's progress, or lack thereof, so I could better support their efforts.

Kelly went beyond being a piano teacher. She was a MUSICAL MENTOR for my children. She sought to understand, respect, and nurture each child based on his or her need, skills, and interests. For the children she teaches, Kelly would provide safe opportunities for individual growth and success, and encourage lots of fun in the process.

FYI--I met Kelly because of her piano skills, but her interests and skills are wide and varied: travel, culture, cooking, home improvement, jewelry making, dance, web design, small business development, retail, and child care. She has a keen and curious mind and is open to new experiences.
