Jennifer Tuck, Voice & Piano Instructor, has been performing and teaching music in schools, after school programs, music stores, churches, camps and her own studio since 1994. She sings, plays the piano, and the flute.
Jennifer has a B.S. Music from Valley City State University. She has an A.S. Degree in Music-Vocal Performance from North Idaho College. She also studied at the Lionel Hampton School of Music (University of Idaho.) She has early childhood piano certifications in Yamaha Music Education, Harmony Road Music Education, and is a licensed Music Rhapsody teacher. She is a diverse musician with training in piano, vocal performance, music history, composition, and theatre. She has conducted several community, church, and school youth choirs.
Growing up and throughout college, Jennifer performed in many musical theater productions, choirs, marching, and pep bands, opera workshop, and church worship teams.
She employs a variety of styles and genres including classical, jazz, pop/rock, gospel, country, blues, and Broadway. She currently plays locally on her church worship team. She can also be seen around the area in the cover band, Yer Mama.
Jennifer teaches all ages from Age 4 to adults. Each age level is appropriate in content.
Private and class lessons emphasize building complete musicianship. They implement singing, piano, note-reading, theory, ear training, technique, improvisation, solfege singing, composition, chording, and performance skills.
Music learning is fun and challenging and often employs activities off the piano bench. Students are also encouraged to bring their favorite songs.
Space in Private and Semi-Private Lesson openings are very limited. Students are strongly encouraged to enroll in one of Jennifer’s peer motivating group classes as their first option.
Private and Semi-private lessons are reserved for adults, older or advanced students, or students with special needs that would find a class difficult to focus in.They are also appropriate for home schoolers who would prefer to learn earlier in the day.
To read more about the awesome group classes Jennifer offers please see the group lesson page.
Jennifer strongly encourages parents to attend all lessons for children age 4-8. Parents are the most influential in a child’s life, and for any young person to rehearse effectively at home, the parents must be equipped to aid them. She is committed to assisting parents in learning alongside their child as much as possible.
When a parent is able to learn with the child, everyone benefits. Often a parent get a “second chance” to resume their own musical study, or learn for the first time alongside their child. Having parents present at the lessons is a win-win for everyone.
Piano Classes are 45 minutes of focused piano instruction that encompass learning to read sheet music, play by ear, music theory, and basic singing. Learn more in the piano group lessons page.
