Jacqui has been teaching private lessons for over 15 years and has been a musician for going on 20 years now. She absolutely thrives on teaching and sharing her love of music with the next generation of musicians. She feels that it is very important to treat each student as a potential colleague.
She has led private lessons and directed groups in sizes ranging from 1 student to full orchestras, even taking conducting classes on a post-graduate level, and has taught general music, orchestra, and choir in school classrooms. Her time as a student and full-time musician in New Orleans have taught her many aspects of the musical world. She started off playing classical music, has studied jazz (couldn’t avoid it in New Orleans!), has played in the pit orchestra for musicals, and has toured the country playing folk music and singing her own songs. She also has a Masters in Arts Administration, and experience with the business and production side of being a musician and artist.
She is available to teach the following instruments: piano, voice, violin, viola, cello, string bass.
