Jennifer is a Toronto-based singer, actor, musician and teacher. For 6 1/2 years now, she ‘s been a stay-at-home mom to Sylvie and Marius, without whom she probably wouldn’t have encountered Music Together!
Jennifer taught piano at Branksome Hall Girls’ School for 8 years, as well as to adults and children out of her own home studio. You may have caught her on stage at the Toronto Fringe Festival in her play “Will”, or at the Ford Centre for the Arts with her Drumming Master Kwasi Dunyo and the Nathaniel Dette Chorale. She currently holds the positions of Cantor and Music Director on Sundays at Eglise Sacre-Coeur de Toronto.
Jennifer is excited to introduce this wonderful, smart and fun program, Music Together, to parents and toddlers, as it was introduced to her and her children.
