Jenny P.

Jenny has always been passionate about music and teaching piano and feels privileged to have taught for over three decades. She believes that because every student is different, each lesson should be different. Her emphasis on the importance of positive reinforcement helps her students excel rapidly. Jenny was born in Madison, Wisconsin, and began to play the piano when she was two. She began serious piano studies with her mother when she was five, and mentoring with Juilliard-trained Olive P. Endres when she was seven. Jenny’s “teaching lineage” can be traced back to Beethoven through Miss Endres! Accepted to Oberlin College Conservatory when she was 16, Jenny majored in Piano Performance with Sedmara Zakarian Rutstein, a former professor of the Leningrad (St. Petersburg) Conservatory. She taught Sight-Singing and Ear-Training to fellow conservatory students at Oberlin and was a member of the Oberlin College Choir as a freshman. Jenny was also a MacPhail Performance Scholar in Minneapolis, studying piano with Yakov Gelfand, also originally of the Leningrad (St. Petersburg) Conservatory. Jenny has been teaching piano in San Diego County since 1991 and has been living and teaching in Ramona since January 2007. She also coached vocal students, specializing in ”getting them to sing in tune.” In addition to teaching, Jenny served as Service Keyboardist and Choral Rehearsal Accompanist at St. Mary’s in-the-Valley Episcopal Church in Ramona. Here, she became Choir Director and Music Director until 2017. With a desire to focus on choral singing, Jenny joined the La Jolla Presbyterian Church Chancel Choir and the Point Loma Nazarene University Choral Union. She also accompanies the White Sands Retirement Community Sandpiper Singers choir in La Jolla.
