About this pro

I studied under some of the best trumpet instructors in the business and approach teaching to a variety of different learning styles (one size does NOT fit all).  I love empowerment and transformation and believe that is the foundation of true progress and success, which is why I focus on bettering the whole person...and not just on making them a better musician/trumpet player.  I am also very flexible with scheduling.

I love finding solutions to problems and watching students' faces when they get that "aha!" moment; when something "clicks."  I was born to encourage and mentor, and teaching allows me to be part of that process.

    Jennifer is a talented trumpet player, but she is excellent with kids in lessons. She gets them to want to practice and get better, if lips get tired she pulls up a humorous utube something to help students relax. She will play duets with students. She gives "homework", picks out music to challenge them. 1 hour just flies by!!

    Had a great experience! Jennifer really was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions! She helped me identify a lot of my bad habits in my trumpet playing and helped me to work on them! Loved the lessons!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to assess and assist my students in making goals and work creatively to reach those goals in a way that will best address the needs of the student, cater to their learning style, and keep them motivated.  We will target problem areas, focus on a musical performance approach for challenging literature (rather than just reading the music/playing the notes), and find ways of making mundane tasks fun!  I know from experience that prioritizing this element (joy!) is pivotal to instilling and maintaining passion in any endeavor :)


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am a graduate of the Arizona State University trumpet studio under David Hickman (BA); one of the top 5 trumpet studios in the country!  I also studied under Marcellus Brown from Boise State.  My passion for nutrition, psychology, motivational speaking, physical fitness, and life coaching is evident in my teaching style.  When I'm not teaching, I am playing with my two teenage boys, enjoying time with my husband, or writing/transcribing sheet music for Lindsey Stirling (violinist).
