Jeanette studied music at the Hutchinson Community Junior College in Kansas and currently teaches at the Arkansas Music Conservatory in Bentonville.

Jeanette’s students say:

“Jeanette is a gifted instructor who is willing to spend the time to teach the fundamentals. I could not have found a more knowledgeable instructor.”
“For a first-time bluegrass player the class was comfortable, positive, and a blast.”
“Jeanette has helped lift the ‘fog’ that surrounds a beginning senior banjo player. I can recommend her as a skilled and positive teacher.”
“Really enjoyed the class. The ability to just sit in with a group and feel comfortable playing is great.”
“Jeanette’s positive approach took me from a total beginner to intermediate level playing. Her upbeat personality and general enthusiasm for teaching created an environment I always looked forward to. Some 30 years later I’m a veteran of of several bands and countless jams.”
“Jeanette has more than satisfied a lifelong desire to play guitar. I will never be a pro but I can play well enough to enjoy it.”
