Jennifer is amazing. We feel lucky to have found her. Both my girls have come a long way in a short time.
Very talented teachers, dedicated to their students, thank you!
Muriel says Jennifer is "very great" and she loves taking piano from her!
My daughter Samantha and I just wanted to send you a quick email to say thanks. Sam's in girl scouts, and right now she's working to earn her Junior Musician badge. The girls are learning how music is made, different styles of music, different instruments, composers, etc. Her troop leader asked the girls to look for some helpful music websites online to share with the troop and Sam found your page, it's been such a great resource we wanted to let you know & to say thanks!
Jennifer has been exceptional at guiding me to work on piano pieces, theory, and technical work that are at exactly the right level. What I mean by that is, she always pushes me to do just a little bit more than I think I am capable of, allowing me to progress and experience successes along the way. I always leave my lesson feeling encouraged and energized! Many thanks!
Terry attended the level 3 contemporary music exam in June. We have received a letter from Conservatory Canada saying he is the winner of the Medal for Excellence of Grade 3 in Alberta . We are so happy to hear that and would like to share that with you and express our appreciation to your great work! Again thank you for teaching Terry to achieve such excellent result.
On CBC Radio One there was program about the book Alice’s Brain. In this book a long-time piano teacher has a stroke and after quite a struggle is able to play piano again. She related how, when playing the piano, she does not feel disabled. I have experienced this at the organ thanks to Jennifer. I truly appreciate this gift you give us beyond just teaching us the piano or organ.
We enjoyed being a part of Imagine Music, it is a great experience.
Excellent lessons and very convenient. It’s been effortless to commit to lessons with the children and they really enjoy the at home environment to learn. Worth every dollar!
Jennifer has been great with our son on the piano. She’s really brought out the best in him and has fueled his passion for playing. Thanks again!
Thank you Jennifer so much for your care and attention with Imagine Music. Your recitals make every child feel confident, special, and successful.
I have only amazing things to say about Imagine Music! The company is affordable, convenient, the teachers are knowledgeable and I am very grateful for the years I was able to practice music with them!
Oh my gosh!!! That was so fun. Cassie and I had a blast listening to the songs and trying to guess the movie title and songs. Thank you so much for doing this. It makes being home all the time so much better. The kids did do amazing. You have some great students!!
Muriel has SO ENJOYED lessons with you, even on Zoom. You are one of the bright lights that kept her going this spring.
Learning the pieces of my choice while also learning technical aspects allowed me to enjoy myself much more than if I were to have treated piano as another academic subject, and Jennifer was more than happy to accommodate me while facilitating the growth of my skill set
Thanks again for all your teaching and your patience! It’s never too late to learn or to test your learning!
Piano, Organ, Keyboard, Jazz and Theory
Jennifer, the best piano AND the best organ teacher is also the music school owner who has over 30 years of teaching and performance experience.
Music School Owner
As a music school owner with over thirty years of teaching / performance experience, Jennifer not only created Imagine Music Inc. in 1994, she continues to grow it. Jennifer’s music school has an undisputed reputation for quality and professionalism within the Calgary music community.
Jennifer is a highly respected music teacher, accompanist, contemporary pop and jazz pianist. She plays at many events such as weddings, corporate parties and a variety of private functions.
Consequently as a sole proprietor, she also knows how to mentor her staff and students with excellent results.
Piano Lessons and Improvisation
Even more as a child, Jennifer embellished music. Likewise, on her first instrument, the organ, she quickly learned how to chord and orchestrate sounds and rhythm settings.
Most noteworthy, at 16 she taught new and creative improvisation techniques to students of all ages.
For that reason she studied piano and keyboard at Mount Royal University, graduating with a Diploma in Jazz and Contemporary Music Performance.
Furthermore she completed the Royal Conservatory of Music Grade 8 Level in piano. Jennifer has taught music students of all ages for over thirty years.
How to Use Your Instrument
Jennifer often instructs on various brands of digital pianos and keyboards. Many people buy highly functional keyboarding instruments and as a result, don’t know how to operate their keyboards or electric pianos to their maximum potential. Consequently, they only use the piano setting. Similarly, students have a lot of fun learning what their instrument is capable of.
A Music School Owner's Approach to Teaching:
- The ability to improvise, interpret, or change your music equals a more versatile player.
- A serious piano student needs to learn various music styles.
- Young students should learn the piano skills that keep them playing as adults.
- Adult students play piano to obtain enjoyment, relaxation, physical and mental skills.
