I have been immersed in music since I was a young child, studying the violin, piano, voice, musical theater, and dancing. Music is one of the most important things in my life. I thoroughly enjoy inspiring students, both young and older, to fall in love with music as I have. I have been teaching for twenty years, and have been performing for thirty years. I teach violin, viola, cello, string bass, piano, voice, flute, saxophone, and beginning guitar.

I performed in many youth symphonies during high school, as we moved around quite a bit. After I graduated college, I played in community orchestras, chamber orchestras, quartet gigs, duets, and soloistically. I have been a worship leader at church and led music from the piano, while singing. I have also played the violin for years in different churches. While living in Vienna, I performed house concerts with a good friend who is a touring concert violinist. I also have five years experience as an accompanist of high school choirs, jazz ensembles, and solo performances at regional and state festivals. I have been the guest conductor of two high school honors orchestras, prepping the two days before hand and leading the orchestra.
I have 20 years of private teaching experience, having established three studios in my home in three different states. I teach ages 4 - mature adult. I have run my own administration and have managed my own recitals on a yearly basis. Seasonly, I have as many as 55 students at a time.

"We were able to find an instructor close to our home and she was a perfect match for our daughter! The only negative was that the website indicated a studio. So Google showed the studio address and we went there but it was a residence; not even the right place for the instructor. Very confusing to use the term "studio". It is an instructor's home not a studio." Kara H. wrote at Friday, Feb. 17th 2017
"Jennifer is a skilled, resourceful, and empathic music instructor who aims for and delivers student success. She treats each student -- I've had the pleasure of being one -- as an individual, and works hard to identify goals, strengths, and weaknesses in order to customize lessons. On top of that, Jennifer is a fun, encouraging person whose love of music is contagious. I highly recommend her!" Julien J. wrote at Wednesday, Oct. 05th 2016
