During their rehearsals, she demonstrated remarkable teaching skills as well. She provided instruction/suggestions in a manner that was encouraging and positive. She was very supportive when my daughter was struggling with a certain portion of a particular piece of music. Jennifer is so talented and professional and just an amazing person. We can't wait to work with her again." Mary Dougherty

These performances have included classical music, modern chamber music, and accompanying a choir. It is more telling that I have often thought of Jennifer's playing when she was not the performer - attending a concert, listening to another pianist, and imagining how the music would have been improved if that pianist had Jennifer's clarity, understanding of individual composers, range of style, strength, subtlety, ability to shape to and support a soloist ... the list goes on." Dan Sackheim

She plays all of these styles with ease and wonderful expression." Leslie Sandefur

"Jennifer is a very professional and compelling live artist as well as very creative in the recording studio. I have just completed a recording project with Jennifer that involved many other superb musicians including Sly and the Family Stone’s and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s Jerry Martini, and singer Twanna Turner. Everyone involved in the project was blown away with Jennifer’s musical talent, not to mention the fact that she is a very nice young lady and fun to work with. Whether it was taking the lead or providing accompaniment, Jennifer knew intuitively what a song needed and added her own beautiful colors to the canvas. She plays with a depth and sensitivity well beyond her years, and for this reason I believe Jennifer is an “old soul.” Standby everybody, we will be hearing a lot from Jennifer as time goes on." Bill Wylie
