She has seen these very students excel as they gain self-confidence, increase their skills beyond their expectations and have fun along the way.

The 2020 Pivot

During the Covid Pandemic Jasmine pivoted from teaching students in person in her private studio to creating an online Virtual Music Studio. This change has opened up new opportunities to teach students from all over the country. It also has been beneficial for students that may not have easy access to piano teachers in their local area. After seeing the benefits of virtual teaching Jasmine has continued to teach the majority of her students virtually.

When Jasmine is not in her music studio she loves training and going on adventures with her two dogs. She dedicates time each month in volunteer work in her community, and enjoys getting together with friends.
