Overview

In working with children of all ages, I find that making lessons fun, engaging but productive is the key to making their musical experience memorable. I use a variety of techniques for learners of all tyoes and I am able to connect with students that other teachers find difficulty working with.

I have worked with all kinds of students in the past, but I particularly work well with students with disabilities (ADD, ADHD, Learning disabilities) or students who have difficulty learning in a regular classroom enivronment.
I try to be innovative to teach students in a different way and I try to use colors to help students see patterns in music and to create a different way to learn music and make it stick!

This lessons teacher is great for lessons! The reason I say is because she has a positive attitude pretty much all the time, she also checks on you to make sure you are doing what you are supposed to be doing, and she also makes sure that you get better than her by offering challenging rhythms, long tones which improves your tone, lip slurs for flexibility, etc etc. Without a doubt would recommend especially for Lowbrass instruments

Jenny is extremely interested in your well being. You are so important to her, and because of that, she will do whatever it takes to help you to improve. She says it like it is, which is the only way one can really improve. She honestly cares so much for her students.

She makes the lesson very enjoyable. Lots of joked to keep it light hearted. But she is always giving great feedback and ways to fix different things.
