Q&A with Jenny Winegarden

Jenny Winegarden is an Educational Consultant at West Music.  Her ten years of teaching Early Childhood music classes, and a degree in music therapy help her relate to and assist customers.

  • What is your background in music, and how do you use that to help our customers?
    I have been involved in music since I can remember, starting with singing in church choir when I was three.  I sang and played in band through high school, and graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree in Music Therapy.  I then went on to teach Early Childhood music classes for ten years before coming to West Music. I’ve learned a lot along the way, and continue to learn new things all the time to help our customers.
    • What do you think are the strongest services that you can offer our customers?
      I  think that my experience and background in music along with my enthusiasm for music are my strongest attributes that I can draw upon to assist our customers.
      • What do you think sets West Music apart from the rest of the pack?
        I haven’t worked for West Music  very long, but as a teacher I was a frequent customer!  I enjoyed working with the West Music staff because they were always very friendly and knowledgeable.  I hope to keep up that tradition!
      • Describe the rapport that you develop with customers.
        I love talking to customers, finding out what they want and what they need, and then getting them the most for their money! Since I’m new, I can’t wait for the day when the same customers will call me again and again for my help.
      • What aspects of music education have you most excited right now?
        I went to my first World Music Drumming class this summer and loved it!  I am anxious to see it in action at the school level, and to continue my training.
