Jennifer is a freelance flutist, educator and curator with a passion for contemporary Australasian music. In 2016 she completed three years of study at the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM). In July 2018 she graduated with a Master of Music Research degree from Griffith University.
Jennifer is particularly passionate about collaborating with like-minded musicians in chamber music and orchestral settings. In November 2017 she launched ‘Timmins and Friends’, a chamber music concert series whose mission is to perform high quality chamber music by living Australian and New Zealand composers for Australasian audiences.
Jennifer is also interested in connecting with music communities throughout Australia through performing and teaching. In 2016 she performed the Mozart D major flute concerto with both the Frankston Symphony Orchestra and the Art of Sound Orchestra. In 2017 she spent 7 weeks touring with Opera Australia, which involved conducting music workshops with young people in regional centres, as well as performances of Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro in 16 towns throughout VIC, NSW, QLD, WA and NT. In 2018 she began teaching at Crashendo!, an El Sistema-inspired music education programme at Laverton College.
