Jennifer Levitan is a passionate teacher, music leader, and performer. From an early age, she demonstrated a strong interest and creative sensibility on the piano and began taking formal lessons when she was 6 years old. Jennifer received her Associate diploma in Piano Performance from the Royal Conservatory in Toronto at the age of 18 after studying privately with Mrs. Suzanne Hughes. She completed two years of formal organ training under Dutch organist Mr. John Boone. In 2010, Jennifer acquired her Music for Young Children teaching certification.
Jennifer opened her first studio and began her private teaching career in 1998 in southern Ontario. She currently operates the Deerpath Music Studio, where she offers instruction from both RCM (Royal Conservatory of Music) & CCMC (Christian Conservatory of Music in Canada) syllabi. Her personalized approach to music training includes improvisation, composition, ear training, sight reading and small group student workshops.
Jennifer also loves to create and perform music. She was the director’s assistant and choral accompanist for the Ingersoll Choral Society for 9 years and collaborative pianist for the Rapport Singers of North Bay for 4 years. Her ability to play and create music in a variety of worship styles has also put her in demand as a church worship leader. Jennifer has been leading congregations, choirs and musicians for the last 17 years. Currently, she actively serves as a full time Music Leader at Calvin Presbyterian Church, North Bay.
Beyond the world of music, Jennifer also operates JoyFullEating.ca and works with clients as an Holistic Nutritional consultant. She loves to spend time with her husband Michael and the two dogs, Farley & Duchess. Together they enjoy roaming the trails at Deerpath Farm, making maple syrup and creating healthy recipes in the kitchen.
