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 H.

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 with me, I think you'll find that I am passionate about connecting each of my students to the own unique beauty of their voice and using that connection to bring about free singing, confidence and musicality by way of foundational singing technique. I also have extensive training in a cappella arranging/singing if you are interested in learning how to start/direct your own a cappella group.

My training in classical piano began when I was five year old and I've had some incredible instructors along the way who have enhanced my skills in contemporary keyboard, including beginning-intermediate jazz and jazz improvisation. I love to teach students to read sheet music and pursue classical/technical excellence, but also to learn how to play music using chord charts, by ear or all three, depending on your personal goals and preferences.

With a passion for music theory and improv techniques, I love to help students who are aspiring songwriters to develop that creative side, especially in combination with learning piano skills -- they pair very well together!

The most successful musicians I know are well-rounded and have developed solid foundations in technique so that they can perform well in many different styles and adapt quickly. This is such a necessary skill in today's technological world where we can share music from across the world with a click of a button! In my lessons, I love to help my students study a variety of genres.

Speaking of technology, I'd like to make a quick plug for my husband :) He is a fantastic videographer and primarily works for a film producer in the DFW area, but he also loves doing independent creative work on the side. He has experience creating quality music videos and would love to create content for any student interested in this!

I really look forward to meeting you and helping you become a confident, skilled musician!

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!

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.

Jenna was way more than I expected. She is knowledgeable and friendly. My son is 7 and tends to normally get off track but she was able to keep him engaged the whole time. My son ended his lesson and kept playing even after she left.

Jenna is very gifted and instinctive music instructor. She is quick to adapt to the needs at hand. I was trained classically all the way through college, and wanted help in playing by ear. Jenna gave me incredible assistance in this area and opened up the world of improvisation to me! I have also watched her train high school singers to amazing skill levels in the acappella arena. Jenna is incredibly versatile, technology-savvy, and one of the most positive instructors I have ever met!
