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 has early childhood music certifications in Yamaha Music Education, Harmony Road Music Education, and is a licensed Music Rhapsody teacher. She majored in Voice at University of Idaho and has a Associate of Music from North Idaho College.
Jennifer enjoys playing keyboards and singing in bands and loves working with people of all ages. She especially delights in encouraging children.
Growing up and throughout college, Jennifer performed in many musical theater productions, choirs, marching, and pep bands, opera workshop, and church worship teams. She developed a broad taste in music for many different styles and genres.
Jennifer employs a variety of styles including classical, jazz, pop/rock, blues and Broadway. She loves to hear the vision of each client and expressly tailor a set list that is uniquely characteristic of their special event.
Jennifer teaches all ages from Age 4 to adults. Each age level is appropriate in content and curriculum choices.
Private and class lessons implement singing, piano, notereading, theory, ear training, technique, improvisation, composition, 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.
Jennifer uses both a notereading and an ear/chordal approach. All music is age appropriate and family friendly.
Private and Semi-Private Lesson openings are very limited. Students are strongly encouraged to enroll in one of our fantastic and motivating group classes.
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.
At the first lesson Jennifer will make a recommendation on which books/materials to purchase.
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. If 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.

After you call to setup and verify your time/schedule/lesson type with an instructor you can take care of your reoccurring payments ahead of time online with our secure site through PaySimple.

Payments won’t be processed until the 1st of each month (and stopped when lessons are discontinued or paused). We ask for a 3 week notice if stopping lessons so we have time to turn off payments and find a replacement for your time slot.
