Hi! My name is Jennifer! I have my Bachelor's Degree in Music from West Chester University in Pennsylvania, and my Master's Degree in Music from New England Conservatory in Boston.
I teach both voice/music for all levels, AND English for foreigners.
After earning my degrees, I taught voice privately at my home studio, as part of the staff of several commercial music studios, and also worked as vocal coach at my local high school for ten years .
In addition to teaching music in the USA, I also worked as a substitute teacher for grades K-12 in all subject areas. (2003-2013)
While living in Vienna, I worked regularly for some of the language schools as an English teacher: assisting students with grammar, pronunciation, conversation, writing, and public speaking/presentations.
I teach from my home studio in PA, Nov-Jan each year. I'm in Vienna for most of the rest of the year. I can teach online when I'm not in your area!
