January 2009

Hello! Here's a little about me:
Whether it's the voice, piano, guitar, or some acting chops, I have pursued the arts passionately throughout my entire life. The motivation to look at things from as many perspectives as possible has driven me to have a unique tool bag of practices to bring to any teaching situation, and has proven successful in my teaching practice.

Creds, Street: I began performing professionally since the age of 7 as a singer, dancer, and actor in the regional theater scene. Once I got into songwriting, I taught myself how to record and went to town.

Creds, Academic: I have a BA in Music, studied theater with SU in NYC, and have an MA in Music Therapy (board-certified). I've been a practicing music therapist for the last 3 years at a Philly children's hospital, as well as an assisted living facility down the mainline.

Jackie is an extraordinary teacher.
She is terrific with my twin girls, well versed in music and piano and quite
talented in both playing the piano, singing and teaching.

My girls are learning a great deal, and really enjoying it.She is an exceptional piano teacher! We are thrilled with her teaching technique so far. . .

We give Jackie our highest recommendation.
Sincerely, Kimberly and Joe Pratt (mother of Stephanie and Natalie Pratt)
