Ten Years

Today marks my ten year anniversary since one of the three best and biggest decisions I ever made: moving to England. I loved my time there, and I miss so many things about my life there including Abbey Road Studios, and being able to hug my friends and meet their babies. But I also love my life here and the personal and professional challenges that almost immediately filled it.

If you know you need to be somewhere, or do something, don’t wait as long as I did.

New Site, New Name

Getting married (if changing one’s name) presents certain decisions for the teaching artist. Do I professionally keep my old name and personally take on the new? Do I convert everything and everyone over to the new?

I decided to do the latter. My seven year old boys’ violin/viola class will have to re-learn to call me Mrs. Asher instead of Ms. Thompson.  My last album (see to the right) is listed here – everything else from this point on will be, happily, Jenni Asher.

Welcome to my new website. You will find errant thoughts on music education and materials, improvisation, and links to awesome things in the community. And if that isn’t what you’re looking for, please feel free to drop me a line:
