Jenny is a great person to study with. Her knowledge and background are second to nobody. She can assist with any musician and experience level to get them to that next step. I highly recommend Jenny to take lessons from. Her dedication to the education of music will surely benefit each and every student who studies with her.

Jenny is an exceptional musician, dedicated educator, and absolute joy to work with. Musicians at her level tend to be intimidating to work with but she has a way of making students feel at ease regardless of their skill level. She's easy going and always greets you with a friendly smile. She is a classically trained flautist and holds degrees in music and education from Northern Arizona University so she understand the not only the music side but how to teach as well. I'd highly recommend Jenny to any flautist looking to learn how to play, enhance their skills/abilities, and/or get back into music.
