About Jennifer H.

Greetings!

My name is Jennifer and I am a Music Educator! I am an Arizona native and have been involved with music my whole life. I have played the clarinet for 15 years and am a graduate of Arizona State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education. I also hold an Associate's Degree in Music from Eastern Arizona College and a teaching certification in instrumental music education. I reside in Gilbert, Arizona and I am currently a high school band director in Mesa, AZ. I also serve on the board of the Arizona Band and Orchestra Director's Association. I have experience with performing in a variety of ensembles including symphony orchestra, concert band, jazz band, small ensembles, and more.

I currently perform with the Tempe Wind Ensemble in Tempe, Arizona.


*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is very student oriented. I teach students of all ages and ability levels. Whether you are preparing for an audition, want to improve a specific technique, or are just starting out I can give you all the tools you need!

I teach lessons with every aspect of music in mind. This includes rhythmic exercises, tone production, sight reading, embouchure development, and much more. I also give my students the artistic freedom to chose what style/genre of music they are interested in performing.

I hold my students to high standards and expect them to practice and be prepared for all lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music Stand, Tuner, Metronome

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect students to provide their own instrument and repertoire. I will bring my own instruments/recordings, and any other materials needed to teach.

*** Specialties ***
Clarinet

Jennifer has been teaching flute to my son for over a year. She is patient, friendly, and supportive. As an effective teacher, she challenges my son while keeping it fun. We highly recommend her!

My daughter has been to Jennifer three times so far, and we will continue to use her for lessons. She is friendly, great with kids, recognizes strengths and weaknesses easily and addresses them. My daughter has learned so much in the few lessons she attended thus far. I recommend her to any one else in the Gilbert area looking for a step above the rest.

Great teacher

We had just three lessons to prepare for a concert and Jennifer did a great job. She explained timing and tone in a way that was easy to understand. If we decide to continue lessons we would definitely want her to be the teacher!
