Bagpipe Lessons

$50 / hr

Highland bagpipes require more learning in-person than most instruments, because of the musical expression and the oral traditions embedded in the culture.  Jenna is passionate about keeping this tradition alive through teaching.  She has studied piping under Jordon Anderson, Fraser Clark, Sean Patrick Reagan, and at the College of Piping.  She recently developed the curriculum used by the Montréal Piping and Drumming School.

Composition Lessons

$45 / hr

Jenna's primary passion is understanding how music works.  She can teach you to write in the style of the composer or era of your choice, how to arrange music for any ensemble, the nuances of notation, or even the art of creating just a beautiful, simple song.  The sky is the limit when you start a new piece.

"Without craftsmanship, inspiration is a mere reed shaken in the wind." -Johannes Brahms
