My Musical Education Background
My mission is to provide a warm and supportive environment in which all students can explore the world of music with confidence and joy. Lessons are content-centered around performance pieces, popular songs the student wants to play, theory and technique.
I hold a degree from The Ohio State University where I studied Piano Performance with internationally-recognized Richard Tetley- Kardos. I'm a certified Yamaha instructor and also have taught in my private studio for more than 11 years. I am a member of the Music Teacher National Association, the Arizona Teacher's Music Association and National Federation of Music Clubs. I also serve as Board Secretary for the Phoenix Music Teachers Association.
In addition, I continue to accompany, perform in piano ensembles and play for various events.
Genres and Subjects Taught
I teach Pop, classical, jazz, new age. Also, I provide lessons for people of all levels from beginner to advanced. In addition, I provide music theory lessons that compliment the music of study.

Maddy is playing the piano as I type. "Maddy is playing the piano as I type. You are the most amazing teacher! I cannot believe how far she has come. Sometimes I have to go and check who is playing because I cannot believe it is her :-) Thank you Jenni"!
Jenni is able to quickly analyze a student's current ability and to develop an individual program leading to rapid improvement while having fun.
