Teaching Philosophy

Having taught early childhood music for over twenty years, my philosophy has simplified to one statement: making music is our human birthright. As a music educator, my work is in drawing out our natural capacity for singing and movement. Thinking of music as a language can be a helpful analogy, and how blessed I am to teach this divine language to any and all willing to learn.

Teaching Biography

Jennie has taught hundreds of families early childhood music for over twenty years in New York City and the metro Boston areas. While at the South Shore Conservatory in Hingham, MA, she helped develop programs for ages 3-11 and also created Woman Song in 2007, a singing circle for women who love to sing, now in its fifteenth year. Jennie is thrilled to be back at teaching young families to develop their own musical traditions!

Performance Biography

Before and after earning a Vocal Performance degree from Northwestern University, Jennie performed leading and featured roles in dozens of shows, cabarets, recitals, and concerts. What calls to her most is the intimate performance genre of cabaret. Cabaret allows for a unique connection with the audience on any chosen theme or issue. Jennie has now winnowed her offerings to three shows including her latest foray into comedy, No Confidence, as laughing has become a most necessary and intentional spiritual practice!
