Private Lessons, Ensemble Coachings, and Workshops

Jennifer is a passionate recorder teacher with over twenty years of experience teaching private lessons, coaching small ensembles, and teaching workshops. She is available to teach private lessons from her home in Colorado Springs, CO or online through Zoom or other video apps.  All ages and levels are welcome!


Jennifer has been an instructor at both the summer and fall Texas Toot (TX), Dallas Recorder Society Workshop (TX), Austin Recorder Society Workshop (TX), Hidden Valley Institute and Next Level Workshop (CA), Orange County Recorder Workshop (CA), Las Cruces Recorder Society Workshop (NM), Los Alamos Recorder Society Workshop (NM), Rocky Workshop (CO) Boulder Recorder Society Workshop (CO), Denver Recorder Society (CO), and Phoenix/Prescott Recorder Society Workshop (AZ).


2020 has been a difficult year for in-person workshops. Jennifer has worked to design topics and classes that work well in a virtual format. She taught several classes for the San Francisco Early Music Society in place of their regularly scheduled summer 2020 workshops. Jennifer also taught 2 virtual beginners' courses for the American Recorder Society and is scheduled to teach several virtual chapter meetings for ARS chapters around North America during their 2020-21 seasons. 



Either in her private home studio in Colorado Springs or online, Jennifer enjoys interacting with her students as they find success in tackling recorder technique and creating moments of musical delight. She is willing to work around her students' busy lives and schedule lessons on a weekly, bi-monthly, or even monthly basis.  Now is the perfect time to schedule a lesson and discover the joy of playing recorders!

2020 has seen the rise of virtual meetings to fill the gap of musical gatherings that are currently on hold. Jennifer is eager to help your group or chapter host a virtual session to bring players together. Contact her for more information!



Jennifer takes great pride in creating dynamic and interactive classes for the workshops she teaches. She strives to find balance between exploring a set of repertoire, both old and new, introducing and reinforcing recorder and ensemble techniques, and having fun! She is willing to travel across the United States (and beyond!) to teach workshops.
