Music has been a part of Jennifer Esposito's life since the fifth grade, when she picked up her first trumpet. She went on to earn a degree in music education at Montclair State University. In addition to teaching at the elementary and high school levels, she studied with seasoned musicians and performed with groups such as the Princeton Youth Orchestra and The Harrison Bushwackers.
When Jennifer enrolled her daughter in the Kindermusik program, its mix of music, family bonding, education eventually solidified her own desire to teach little ones. She's now a certified instructor and the owner of her own studio, Kindermusik with Ms. Jenni. She leads classes that involve children of all ages and their families.
