I was looking for a vibrant, fun piano teacher for my kids as they were not motivated by strict teachers who also taught them boring songs they could not relate to. What a gift of a teacher we found in Catherine. Not only is she warm, kind, caring with an easy rapport for kids and adults alike but she is also an excellent piano and voice instructor. This talented lady is a professional singer too who is well versed in Broadway show tunes and opera too. She also instill her students with a sense of musical rhythm and is holistic in her approach to kids who might need a little physical warm up before class in order to attend better. Catherine’s voice is magnificent and we were fortunate enough to attend a show where she played the lead for The Taming of the Shrew.
She is a professional voice and classical opera teacher too and this complements her piano instruction .. A perk is she can travel to your home or does lesions in her own home . In addition
is a passionate, excellent voice teacher for anyone who is looking to hone their vocal skills and talents. I wholeheartedly recommend Catherine - her lessons are more than just teaching - she is a true mentor and educator in every sense of the word.

Extremely caring and knowledgeable. My grandchildren loved her while we were taking lessons. We only stopped because they live too far away. I highly recommend Catherine!!

After assessing a student's abilities and needs, I tailor their instruction according to what best fits their individual personalities and capabilities. I stress proper technique, beauty of tone, rhythmic accuracy, and expressive musicality. Understanding of music theory is intertwined with the musical experience. Playing in ensemble is encouraged; I play lots of duets with my students.
The atmosphere presented to my students is always casual and friendly. I take care to make them feel relaxed and uninhibited. I relate to them as whole persons, not just music students. I strongly emphasize their enjoyment of the music and my expression of pleasure in their successes. I consider it a privilege to nurture others in the experience of music!

Online Piano Teacher

I grew up being trained classically, and although I value the skills I learned from classical training, I realized that I did miss out on the other aspect of learning piano skills. Those skills include improvisation, creativity, song-writing, and much more! I purposefully incorporate more than just sheet music reading while also trying to make reading music more accessible and relatable. Each student also has different individual goals with piano playing that I think are of utmost importance in the way I teach.

About Jenna

I am a pianist, singer, choral director and lover of many different genres of music from classical and jazz to musical theatre and indie/folk. I graduated from John Brown University in Siloam Springs, Arkansas with a Bachelor's of Music Education, emphasis in Piano. If you are studying voice wit

She is amazing!!!!
Jeanne & Edward S.
Jenna is a great fit for our two teenage beginners! She is lively and upbeat, well organized, moves at a pace appropriate for their age, incorporates music which interests them, presents a great blend of playing and theory, and holds them accountable to practice assignments. We are very grateful to have her for an instructor!
Louis M.
Jenna has helped me improve so much since I've been taking lessons from her. She is very detailed and will break everything down for you. In the amount of time of my lessons I have become a lot more confident and am not nervous to play and sing in front of others now. She really cares about her students and will push you to be the absolute best you can be. All around down to earth good person and a bad to the bone teacher.

"Ms. Bonnie works with both my daughters, Madison (8) and Parys (11). I find her self-developed curriculum to be engaging and simple enough for a novice learner. She is patient and kind also, which works nicely with our parenting approach. Although she is remote, you can feel her presence right within your home."

There teaching style has provided a structured environment with very patient, encouraging tone so the most timid of students will want to learn. Students with learning challenges have done well with their program. Periodic recitals and music competitions are scheduled during the year to showcase each students learning accomplishments. Both Tim and Sally are loving people and would welcome anyone who desires to learn piano, guitar, violin, and voice from their experienced teachers."

"Attentive Instructon

I am an adult student and have taken lessons in the past and am starting again. I have enjoyed the personal and attentive instruction given. Susan sits right by the piano and watches every movement. Teachers I have had in the past have not done this. She provides supplemental material that I need. She is always very friendly, kind, patient and has a great deal of professional knowledge. I would recommend her to anyone."
