- Teaches students:
- Ages 4+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
- December 1992
I have been teaching piano to students of all ages since 1992, both to individual students and groups. I taught with the Music Learning Center of Michigan. I have been a music teacher and choir director for a number of years as well. For eight years I have played the organ and piano for Church worship.
*** Lesson Details ***
Music should be appreciated and enjoyed. Lessons should be fun without sacrificing quality. This is the approach I offer to students. I focus on teaching independence through music theory and sight reading. Performance is an important part of learning so I provide two recitals every year- one for Christmas and another in the spring, at the end of the school year.
My schedule only allows for weekly lessons. Requests for every other week cannot be accepted.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Separate room dedicated to teaching with upright piano.
My 7-year-old daughter has her piano lesson with Jennifer for 14 months. Jennifer is a great piano teacher. My daughter has learned a lot from her and really enjoyed playing piano.
Was nervous about my first lesson, never played piano before but Jennifer explained about the piano, notes and how to start reading music and my nerves subsided. Didn't think I'd be playing easy, short pieces in my first lesson! Looking forward to my next lesson.+ Read More
Jennifer is a knowledgeable piano teacher. English is not my native language but the way she explains the music theory is very easy for me to understand. I'm very lucky to have her as my teacher.
The instructor was warm and welcoming. I felt I had her full attention and she corrected my errors and noted my strengths with equal grace.
Great piano teacher! She has been great for my shy little 7/8 year old (we've been with Jennifer for ~1 year now). I love that she is patient with my daughter! She is always positive and encouraging. My daughter has come a long ways! She just played beautifully at their Christmas recital!
I also appreciate that Jennifer is conscious of the distractions of a young child. She has a piano in a separate room with doors. If there is too much noise outside of the room, or outdoors, she will turn on a 'white noise' maker to help cancel out the distractions and keep her students focused!
Overall, it has been a great experience so far! No complaints! Yes, I'd recommend her!
It's was terrific!
Fantastic! My daughter talked about her lesson all the way home. Great job with a 6 year old- first time with music lessons.
Great with little people
Great first lesson!
Jennifer is a wonderful teacher with ambition, paced teaching, and most of all, passion for what she does. Highly recommend.
Jennifer is a phenomenal piano teacher. Her energy, positivity, and complete mastery of the art of teaching piano makes the lessons a great experience for my two children. My children are 7 and 5 and her approach to each of them perfectly compliments each of their personalities and abilities. We love Jennifer!+ Read More
Fantastic piano teacher for kids! Jennifer is patient, kind and energetic. She was prepared for us to arrive and worked very well with both of my children. We are so excited!
I loved my lesson today!!!! It was my first lesson ever at 31 years old and I felt like I could conquer the world when I left! Can't wait for my lesson next week!
Jennifer G is an excellent piano teacher. Very thorough and has a knack for explaining everything in a way where the student can understand. If you want to learn piano correctly sign up with Jennifer G. You will be happy you did.
Jennifer is a great Piano teacher. My daughter loves her. Thanks
My daughter was so excited to tell me what she learned. I can tell she will really enjoy this!
She was wonderful!!! She is such a great teacher and my daughter cannot wait to go back next week. That makes me excited as a parent that my child is excited about music.
Jennifer is a great piano teacher.
She could influence very young kids easily and get them interested in learning from her. Both my 7 years old son and my 3 years old daughter are fighting for the piano seat when she's teaching my son.
This was my first time ever taking Piano lessons. Jennifer made me feel comfortable and eager to learn more. I actually played a song...it wasn't perfect but I tried. I'm looking forward to my next lesson and the possibilities for the future. Thank you Jennifer!!+ Read More
It was everything a first experience should be. The instructor got right to work and started at basics. She didn't skip a moment and kept my daughter occupied the entire time. My 4 year old was overjoyed and felt like she was "all that" the rest of the day!+ Read More
It was great. My daughter had a great experience with Jennifer's first lesson. Thanks
My daughter had so much fun during her first piano lesson! Jennifer's lesson was very engaging and my daughter can't wait to return.
Everything has been great. She is so patient with my 5 year old son, and he loves his lessons.
Ms.Jennifer is the most fantastical teacher ever, but really, she is. My sister and I (Grace) have been taking lesson for 6 years now and we've really enjoyed her the whole time. She works around our crazy (and I mean CRAZY) schedule, multiple times. Taking piano lessons from her has been a really fun experience and I'll keep doing it as l can. Now I'm in 6th grade and can read treble and bass clef and can play much more than I thought I would be able to when I first started.
Now to outdo Grace, Ms. Jennifer is sooo cool and the bestest (not a real word)teacher in the whole universe and has like superwoman powers on the piano. I totes(once again not a real word, that's just how good she is) recommend her.
Mrs. Jennifer has been the greatest most awesome teacher I have ever had. I started lessons when I was 9, and in 6 short years I've become a musician. I feel like I can read/play any piece of music (although I can't...at least not yet). I've learned so much by taking lessons with her. When I started, I barely knew how to read treble clef! Now, this year as a high school freshman, I was able to be in the marching band as a synthesizer player. I can't put into words how much she means to me! Not only is Mrs. Jennifer an amazing person, but she is an amazing teacher as well. I have so much fun at all of our (my sister and I) lessons and I'm dreading college, just because I can't have lessons every week with her. I couldn't have asked for a better role model, and I definitely recommend her as a piano teacher. (As long as she still has time to teach me)+ Read More
Very pleasant to work with and very patient with me as I regain my previous skills.
My daughters are 10 years old and have been taking piano lessons from Mrs. Jennifer for about three years. They love her! She's kind and incredibly patient.
Because I wanted my daughters' love of piano to develop naturally -on their own time, I wouldn't force them to practice. Now, starting their fourth year of lessons, my daughters enjoy learning, playing, writing music, and they look forward to the recitals. I have very much appreciated Jennifer's patience and understanding of this process. She has helped shape a love of piano that will stay with my daughters forever.
Jennifer is a great teacher! I like how well Jennifer works with my daughter and she has helped my daughter grow so much in her piano playing over the years that I would never want to go with another teacher. Jennifer has been so kind and understanding throughout our 5 years with her and my daughter looks forward to more lessons to come!+ Read More
She is very patient and kind! Definitely recommend!
She is amazing and my kids love music because of her!
Good first impression, hope to continue learning.
Jennifer gets on my daughter's level. If there's something she doesn't want to do she changes with ease, she's very versatile. Jennifer and my daughter get along really well and have been taking lessons for about 3 years. She is wonderful.+ Read More
My daughter enjoyed the lessons so much, we are signing up for more!
Jennifer is very patient and is able to quickly pick up on the skills you need to be successful. I recommend her for anyone (the very young to the old).
Jennifer is a great teacher. I love her class!
I loved the lesson...Jennifer is an awesome teacher
Jennifer is a very good instructor. She is patient and very encouraging. She has a very pleasant personality which provides for a very comfortable learning environment. I'm very happy with my choice of Jennifer as my piano teacher.
Great teacher! Enjoys the lessons and time spent with her!
My girls have been taking lessons for 9 months and We are very happy with the results, Jennifer is a very good teacher. She works with the girls on what they like to play!!
best teacher ever
Jennifer has been teaching my 9 year old son for the last few months now. My husband and I enjoy listening to him play and the progress he makes week to week. She is amazing with him. Definately great with children. We are excited to see how far he can advance this year. Keep up the great work Jennifer!! Thanks!!!
My daughter wanted to learn to play the piano. She loves it even more than she thought she would thanks to Mrs. Jennifer. She is always welcoming and professional. Mrs. Jennifer is amazing with helping parents if a schedule change is needed. I can't thank her enough for helping develope the love of music in my daughter. Thank you Mrs. Jennifer for instilling the love and respect of music lessons and values in my daughter. I know they will forever impact her life in the most the positive ways!!!!
We have extremely please with Jennifer. She knows what she is doing and she is wonderful with kids. Both of my grandkids enjoy going to lessons every week.Thanks,Terry
I love your technique and how you want Breanna to learn all the chords . It helps alot so that she can learn how to create her own music .
Piano is fun!
Jennifer is very nice and encouraging. I like the method of reading music by intervals (versus memorizing the notes). I have had ~6 lessons and have enjoyed them all.
Jennifer is EXCELLENT!
My experience with Jennifer has been absolutely wonderful. I decided to put my daughter in piano, because she admires Alicia Keys and wanted to play like her. Jennifer is caring, and knows how to teach with patience. My daughter LOVES her.
Jennifer is so good with my daughter and very patient. She has learned so much already in such a short time! We are both glad we found a kind and wonderful instructor.
Great teaching skills!
My 8 & 5 year old daughters started piano with Jennifer for the very first time. I'm surprised how just merely over two months and both have progressed very well. They love going to piano lessons and no complains especially from my 5 year old. My girls are always excited when they get home to share and show me what they have learnt. Thank you Jennifer! :)
Jennifer is an EXCELLENT teacher. Rather than just having me play the pieces, she TEACHES me the theory and helps me understand why it's important in the particular piece of music. She is always flexible to work with my personal learning style and to comply with my requests.+ Read More
