Jennifer is currently in her fourth year of study for a degree in Music Performance at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London under the tutelage of Professor Detlef Hahn. She has performed as a soloist in the National Concert Hall and the Helix, in Dublin, and in various venues around London, Switzerland, France and the USA.

Jennifer is well known to audiences in Dundalk and Drogheda where she performs on a regular basis with both Setanta Choir and St. Peter’s Male Voice Choir. She gave her first solo public performance at the age of 12 and has continued to delight audiences ever since. Over the years we have seen this young musician grow and develop her wonderful talent.
Following a recent performance in London, Jennifer’s playing was described as “passionate and engaging, imaginative and daring ... full of fantasy, displaying a technical brilliance that had the audience in thrall.’’ She has been lauded as ‘‘an intelligent, communicative and lively violinist, a joy to watch”.
