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.
