Hi! My name is Jennifer and I LOVE music!! I've been teaching piano lessons for about 10 years and voice lessons for about 5 years. I really love getting to share my passion for music with others and helping students to develop their own musical skills.
I graduated from Trinity Christian College in 2012 with a Bachelor's degree in Music. In 2015, I completed my Master's degree in Musicology at the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Since then, I have worked for a theatre company in San Francisco and as an accompanist for both high school and middle school choirs in Ceres, CA. I recently moved back to Chicago and would love to start teaching lessons again!!
*** Lesson Details ***
For piano lessons, I will typically use the Piano Adventure series by Faber and Faber. I am also open to working on other pieces a student brings me. I do expect students to reimburse me for the cost of the books they keep.
Voice lessons begin with the fundamentals of breathing and proper tone. I will typically select one or two pieces at a time for students to work on that tie in to what they are learning. I also encourage students to bring in suggestions of songs they would like to learn.
** Students MUST have either a piano or keyboard both for lessons and that they can practice on.
Played piano for choir rehearsals and concerts.
Ran choir rehearsals when director was absent.
Conducted a piece at the Ceres High School spring concert 2017.

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. :)
