She has performed at bluegrass festivals and state fairs in the Midwest, and at Silver Dollar City in Branson, has played with bluegrass bands including Flint Hill Flash, Subject to Change, and currently plays with Gloryband, Stained Glass Bluegrass, and The Good Shepherd Pickers as part of an outreach ministry.

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

“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.”
“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.”
“Really enjoyed the class. The ability to just sit in with a group and feel comfortable playing is great.”
“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.”
