Hi! My name is Jennifer and I've taught lessons for about 10 years. I received my BA in Music from Trinity Christian College in 2012 and my MA in Musicology from the University of Amsterdam in 2015. I really love getting to share my passion for music with others and helping students to develop their own musical skills.

I strongly believe that it is never too late to learn a new instrument. Music is a wonderful gift with many power qualities and is meant to be enjoyed by all people.


*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very energetic and enthusiastic teacher. I like to motivate the students and encourage love of music along with learning the basics of music. I believe that it is easier for students to learn music if they are also excited about it.

I want to make sure that they are learning things they want to learn in addition to things I want them to learn. I will periodically check with students to make sure any questions they have are being addressed in lessons. I also like to have my voice students bring in a song or two they would like to learn.

For piano lessons I typically use the Piano Adventures books by Faber and Faber. The books are divided up into lessons and span various levels. If students have something specific they want to learn, I am open to integrating that into lessons as well.

Most of my training has been in classical music, though I also have experience with musical theatre.

** Students MUST have either a piano or keyboard both for lessons and that they can practice on.

Jennifer is awesome! She teaches two of my children, ages 11 and 14, and they love her. She is very patient and friendly with them. She has great teaching kills. My kids are learning so much from her. The most important thing is that they are having fun as they learn. What else can I say....she is amazing. :)
