Piano, Voice

Jeffrey A. Arnett is an experienced teacher with over twenty years of piano, and
vocal teaching. He taught piano, voice, composition, and Harmony Road classes
at Meridian Music School from 1995 through 1998, and it is a privilege to
welcome him back. Prior to Jeff’s return to Meridian Music School, he performed
abroad, started his own record label, directed church choirs, produced, and sold
his Peaceful Reflections album, composed numerous pieces, and participated in
missions work as an instructor to other educators in Jamaica. He considers
himself blessed to have had the opportunity to perform globally, and his music
continues to be heard internationally. Jeff was awarded a full music scholarship
to the University of Indianapolis, earning his B.S. in Music performance (major in
piano, minor in voice). He extended his studies by assisting in master classes at
University of Indianapolis. His principle teachers include Carol Wheeler, Gino and
Maggie Arcoleo, Dorthy Munger, Elaine Norwood, Dr. Patricia Cook, Dr. Nancy
O’Dell, Dr. Richard Ratliff, and Dr. Rebecca Sorley. Jeff is first tenor at Second
Presbyterian Church Choir in Indianapolis, IN. He continues to teach all ages,
and levels including those with learning disabilities. His well-rounded approach to
teaching is flexible, and relaxed. It includes sight reading, music theory
games, eurythmics, playing by ear, improvisation as well as exposure to various
styles and types of music. Jeff, and his daughter love to look up jokes. Here’s a
funny music joke Jeff enjoys: What is the difference between a fish, and a piano?
Answer: “You can’t tuna fish.”
