About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
I'm a violinist, jazz vocalist, and composer, trained at the Royal Academy of Music. I teach violin, improvisation, and composition. My interests are eklectic to the utmost -- from music to health, graphic design to languages, to writing and giving storytime at children's libraries. I'm also a member of the London Vocal Project led by Pete Churchill, and Ritmos da Cidade (Rhythms of the City), a samba percussion band in London.
In 2009, I founded the Yellow Bird Quartet, a string quartet that exists on the premise that while we are classically trained, we are also jazz musicians.
As far as my taste goes, I'm picky, but I generally like jazz, classical, hip hop and r&b. I don't like a lot of commercial sounding things and go in head first for the deep stuff. If it means something significant, I'll probably appreciate it in some shape or form. I love my job. I have the honor of playing with many different groups regardless of their genre, who know their stuff. Every few months I compose something new for vocals, violin, piano, or the erhu.
My album "A Portrait of Jenni" was released in September 2008. Check it out on iTunes, Napster, eMusic, Rhapsody, or Amazon MP3.
