“My proudest moments are every year at the concerts when the students rise beyond what any of us could expect and play and sing beautiful, exciting music from their hearts. They always dig deep and ring true.”

Lower School music teacher Jennifer Nelson brings great joy to her Kindergarten and Grades 1-4 music classes and the annual Winter Concert, to which Grades 3 and 4 parents are invited. Jennifer has been on the Lower School faculty since 1997. She grew up in Stillwater, Oklahoma, and attended University of Texas and Conservatoire Nationale de Strasbourg, France. She earned a master’s of music in voice from Cincinnati Conservatory. Jennifer always wanted to be a singer. As an educator, she desires to teach all ages to keep the music going throughout time. She believes that people benefit greatly from making music, intellectually, physically, and spiritually. Jennifer is still a working musician after all these years full of changes and after raising three children in Brooklyn.
