More about Me!

Updated: Nov 16, 2020

Hello! It’s me, your neighborhood piano technician Jenn. I’m not here to dive into my journey of becoming a piano technician. I’m actually here to tell you the other stuff, so you can get to know more about me as a person!

I’m from Philadelphia and grew up in the suburbs of Bucks County. I started playing piano when I was 5, against my will. My older sister had been learning so my parents started me as well. I grew up trying and playing several other instruments as well, including oboe, trumpet, and violin. Violin was the only one that stuck. I started playing it in 3rd grade, or rather, the summer before. I originally wanted to play cello but yet again, because my older sister chose violin, I was shuffled down the same path. It ended up working out because I played all throughout elementary, middle, and high school, eventually becoming the president of my high school orchestra my senior year, an orchestra of over 100 members. I was very lucky I went to a school district that has a great music program.

I continued piano lessons throughout this time as well, not truly loving it until high school, where I started to truly understand the work it takes to learn a piece of music.

I went off to college, where I graduated with a degree in International Studies and a minor in Communications from Loyola University in Chicago. I have an affinity for and love of languages and wanted, and still want, to learn them all. I also absolutely love to travel, and I worked two jobs while going to school full time, as well as having an internship, in order to fund a backpacking trip to Europe with a friend once we graduated.

We went to 15 countries in 28 days with just backpacks, hitting most countries in western Europe. I feel so comfortable in new places, even if I don’t know the language. It was by far one of the best months of my life, and I plan to continue feeding the travel bug I have in the future.

When I’m not fantasizing about travel or tuning pianos, you can find me reading books (I love biographies and non-fiction), playing community softball, hiking, hanging with my friends or, of course, playing piano! I also hope to join a community orchestra because I really miss the feeling of being part of a group working toward a goal.

I’m not sure what else to say, but I just wanted you all to get a better picture of who I am. I know I’m likely going to be in your home for an average of just two hours, but I like the idea of you having an idea of the stranger working on the piano, an important instrument and piece of furniture in your home, and I want you to be comfortable with me being that person.

If you have any questions for me regarding anything I’ve written, please feel free to reach out! I’m always happy to talk about travel, college, Chicago, or pretty much everything. We all have something we could teach each other.
