Jennifer is that rare musician that is as accomplished a teacher as she is a player. She has a gift for sharing her passion and understanding with players of all levels. She develops the unique skills and interests that each student already possesses by inspiring her students and making them feel capable.

I began studying with Jennifer in 2008, and continue to do so because she communicates both the mechanics of guitar playing and the inspiration of music in ways that resonate with me physically, intellectually and emotionally. The classical techniques I have learned from Jennifer enable me to play music that sounds great with a solo guitar; but I also like to play with others, especially with my boyfriend playing mandolin. Jennifer’s lessons are always fun, and always challenging. Thinking back to my first lesson, I am stunned at how much I have improved!

I have been taking lessons from Jennifer for six years. I like working with Jennifer because she knows the literature and has extensive performance and teaching experience. This allows her to assign pieces and exercises that will improve specific areas of your technique. This experience also grounds her suggestions on a ‘what has worked’ approach.
