Jennifer has been incredibly helpful in my growth as a musician. Not only is she so knowledable in her craft, but she makes you feel comfortable and willing to make mistakes and really focus on the art. She is very responsive to any questions or concerns I have, and is also punctual and focused during our lessons. She really cares about each of her students. I have seen my own personal improvement with the cello, which, in my opinion is such an incredibly beautiful instrument. I highly recommend Jennifer to anyone, of any age, who is interested in learning the cello.

Jennifer was an attentive, skilled and encouraging cello teacher for my twelve-year-old daughter. She communicated with us in a timely and professional manner and developed a strong rapport with her student. Jennifer truly inspired my daughter to strive for proper technique and emotional expression in her playing. We were very pleased with our experience.

Jen is a great player and phenomenal teacher. I went to her having never held a bow before and I was playing through simple pieces within a few weeks. She also has a great way of gauging exactly where her students are at and helping them on their musical journey. Highly recommended!!
