About Jenny


Jenny has been joyfully making music at the piano since she was a young child. She holds a Bachelor of Music degree in Piano Performance from Brigham Young University and is a Nationally Certified Teacher of Music.

Jenny loves teaching piano lessons and has been doing so since 1998. As she has turned her attention in the past few years to being a mother, her focus in piano has naturally become centered on teaching young children. Jenny developed and co-wrote her own preschool music class curriculum when her oldest son was three years old; she loves helping young children experience the joy of music! She also loves teaching young-at-heart students of all ages, and particularly enjoys helping adult pianists develop their technique and expression in their playing. Jenny is a naturally happy and enthusiastic teacher, and loves creating fun resources for her students and sharing them with others.

Jenny IMG_4260also played violin for nine years in school orchestras, and she was the organist for her LDS church congregation for several years. Jenny is married to a very talented pianist who is an optometrist by day. They love playing duets together and making music with their four children.
