I am dedicated to helping students improve on their instrument and work toward their own personal goals. All ages and all levels are welcome. I think it is important to build on a foundation of technique, sight reading, and music theory, but also have fun in the process. I have a BM in Clarinet Performance from the University of Puget Sound and a MM in Clarinet Performance from California State University, Fullerton.
About Jenna T.

I am a performer, teacher, and student. While working towards a Masters in Performance with the Los Angeles Philharmonic's Burt Hara at Cal State Fullerton, I have subbed with local orchestras as well as participated in recording projects in Orange County. At the University, I performed with the wind symphony, orchestra, and new music ensemble. I completed my Masters in the Spring of 2019 and now perform regularly with the Los Angeles Clarinet Choir and Synesthesia Sinfonietta. When I was a child, my uncle, a doctor for the CDC in Atlanta, was visiting for Christmas. I only saw him once a year, and this year he gave me a pink plastic recorder. After becoming immediately obsessed with the small instrument, I begged my parents for lessons. “Lessons on the recorder?” they laughed. Every Christmas, my uncle would bring a duet book, and we would play duets on recorder. Finally, in third grade, my parents started me on piano and the next year, I began private lessons on clarinet. I found my passion for playing at a young age. I believe that although it is important to build good technique, practice habits, and musicality, it is also important to keep the passion and joy that playing music can bring us. As I grow as a person and a musician, I always try to remember what brought me to music in the first place: playing and enjoying music with my friends and peers. Aside from performance, I discovered my passion for teaching as I started working with students in private lessons and working as a camp counselor at a woodwind camp. I was invited to sub with the Auburn Symphony and was excited to perform Tchaikovsky’s Symphony no. 2 beside my mentor and friend, Jennifer Nelson. Today, I am indebted to the inspiration my uncle gave me as a child and all my teachers for my opportunity to complete a Masters of Music in Clarinet Performance at Cal State Fullerton.

I enjoyed working with Jenna. She came to my place to give lessons. She was punctual and patient. I didn't have many lessons, but I like her.

So far I’ve spent only a few weeks as a student, but even with a few lessons, she was and to point out the very and fix the very little things that overall greatly impacted my playing as a young clarinetist.
