Jennifer TuckHello, I’m Jennifer Tuck, welcome to my Inspiration Cafe. This is the place for studio and musical life solutions that sing!

I am passionate about teaching music and sharing the power of the arts.

I’m an independent music studio owner, pianist, vocalist, curriculum writer,  and composer.

What’s Different About Musical Mocha?

Musical Mocha addresses the reality that the teaching musician has many facets of their life. We are gigging and writing lesson plans. We volunteer in our church and community. We have families and social commitments. Finding time to practice and keep a home can be tricky. We have to be professional in business and fun with our students.  One thing is for certain, as teaching musicians we juggle so many things!

Musical Mocha is like a cabinet filled with colorful mugs- reach in and grab the one that appeals to your needs today!

Musician Life-  Here we have articles about being a musician including wellness issues.

Studio Management- It’s good to be the Boss! You will find pro tips on running a successful independent music studio. My aim is to help you to teach effectively within your own unique style.

Piano Pedagogy –  We have practical games that are quick and easy to implement, and bonus information on how to teach group piano, and ideas to create a keyboard orchestra. The piano-it’s an amazing instrument and powerful tool. Le’ Sigh!

Singing Essentials-  This mug of joy is for teaching voice and vocal tips. I was a voice major in college, and so this section is near and dear to my heart.

Music Ministry- This inspiration is for those serving in Christian music and children’s ministry.  I have been serving in this arena since childhood.  I have served on many church worship teams and worked as a church staff children’s ministry leader.  I’ll be introducing some of the curriculum and musicals I have written for kids to you soon.
