Music has always been a part of Jill's life, thanks to her parents, who listened to music all the time while she was growing up. She became active in musical theater, and after graduating from high school, landed the role of Peron's Mistress in Harold Prince's national tour of Evita. From there, she went on to tour as Cinderella in James Lapine's Into the Woods and then played the lead role of Fantine in the national tour of Les Miserables. In between shows, she studied Music Education at Indiana University School of Music. Once settled in New York, Jill was introduced to Music Together® when she took her daughter to a class. She fell in love with the program and began the journey to becoming a teacher. Jill also has a son, two dogs, and one cat. In addition to teaching and being a mom, Jill enjoys running and has completed two New York City marathons. Jill was awarded Music Together Certification Level II in August 2019 for outstanding achievement in teaching, musicianship, program philosophy, and parent education. The award was granted by Kenneth K. Guilmartin, Founder/Director, and Lili M. Levinowitz, PhD, Director of Research.
Jill is extremely happy to bring Music to her community of Rockland County.
