Jenny’s life-long involvement in music ranges from gospel singing in church as a child to 15 years of classical piano study which led her to earning a degree in music education from Lander University with an emphasis in piano and choral music. At the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago, she helped develop the group piano course for kids and created a successful method of teaching rhythm, ©Rhythm Shapes.
Asheville Music School is hiring a piano teacher, specifically one that has training and experience with early childhood education, and is willing to teach in-person lessons. Experience in ensemble leading, with knowledge of multiple instruments, a plus. Music degree required.

As the saying goes, two heads are better than one. When we decide to take up a new hobby or commit to learning something new, it’s not only more helpful to have a teammate by our side – it makes the experience more fun! Learning an instrument together is one solid way to become teammates with your child. Not only will you be a great mentor while they learn an exciting new instrument, but you’ll be able to explore what music has to offer together. This will be one of the greatest decisions you make as a parent, for your child and for yourself.
Asheville Music School will be hosting a virtual benefit for the Henderson County MountainCare featuring our students and faculty on Thursday at 7pm. We have collaborated with MountainCare for many years providing musicians and entertainment for their clients and have seen firsthand how important and special this organization is for the community. Please tune in, donate, and share to support MountainCare in finding a new location during the pandemic.
Asheville Music School, in partnership with local Asheville musicians, has started a new music scholarship fund in honor of the late Sean Mason. The Sean Mason Memorial Scholarship Fund will benefit students wishing to study percussion instruments of all kinds, as well as studies in jazz and composition. Sean was long-time Asheville drummer and percussionist who passed away late this past summer of 2020.
Join us for a lovely evening of live music that we’ve planned on Oct. 3. We have the Brevard Philharmonic Woodwind Quintet and Bob Strain jazz trio performing at a private home in North Asheville. You can bring a picnic, bring some wine, bring the family (or, date night!). It’s a very safe space, with everyone social distancing. We’d love to see you!
