Mother of 2 voice/piano students
"My daughter has had the good fortune to have Jenn Connor as her voice instructor at the Caledonia Music Centre for the past 5-6 years. As the Recreational Director at the Hamilton Gymnastic Academy, and someone who has worked with children for the past 30 years, I have a very good understanding of the qualities needed to be a great teacher. Jenn has all of these qualities, plus so much more.
My own daughter is one of those kids who can’t sit still and is easily distracted. My child also uses many avoidance tactics to get out of doing work. Jenn has a very easy going nature that is coupled with the ability to keep her student on task. Jenn uses positive reinforcement and rewards to keep my child motivated and learning. She follows the curriculum and always comes prepared with lesson plans. Jenn is also flexible enough to realize when something is not working she needs to switch gears quickly so as to not lose the student’s interest.
Personality wise, Jenn was a great fit for my child. I consider Jenn to be a very positive role model for my child."

“Jenn is a wonderful musician and instructor. She is excellent at encouraging both kids in their piano and keeping them engaged. She makes the lessons fun, and the children really enjoy her as their piano teacher.”

"Jenn is one of those rare people that has the ability to connect so easily with kids and adults to make her instruction and lessons dynamic.
Her positive, energetic style of teaching uses our daughter's current music interests, using fun games and challenges that motivate our daughter while reinforcing the foundation of traditional theory.
Communication with Jenn is amazing, whether it's reaching out to us with updates, pieces or challenges for our daughter to work on or her understanding of life's scheduling conflicts and changes."
With 10 years of teaching experience already under her belt, Jenn Connor is excited to be offering music lessons online and in person at her Burlington studio.
Originally from Burlington, Jenn demonstrated at a young age a willingness and ability to perform, singing Hilary Duff’s “Wake Up” at the local town fair when she was 10 years old. That same year, Jenn was chosen to play the lead in her school's senior musical production of “Cinderella.” This early onstage experience led to additional opportunities in high school and furthered her interest in pursuing a career in music.
Vocally, Jenn is classically trained, specializing in Bel Canto over the past 13 years. In addition to teaching vocals, Jenn also teaches beginner and intermediate piano, both classical and pop/jazz. Building upon her own Royal Conservatory credits, Jenn’s previous work experience includes helping students prepare for RCM examinations.
In pursuit of her own singing career, Jenn has worked with renowned producers including Los Angeles-based Tomas Costanza (Boys Like Girls) as well as award-winning producers Douglas Romanow (Justin Bieber) and Rob Wells (Ariana Grande). Jenn’s recent release, “Like I Did,” a fresh, innovative sound (produced by Wells) received airplay across Canada and critical acclaim from numerous online music blogs and magazines.
Jenn’s musical influences range from the pop stylings of Michael Jackson to the operatic roots of The Tenors, reflecting her depth of musical appreciation. Jenn credits The Tenors, Criss Angel, and Cody Simpson for their ongoing guidance and support in her musical career.
