Jenifer Dittelberger is the owner of Somerset Academy of Music and has been teaching music for over 25 years. She opened Somerset Academy of Music in 2002 with a desire to make music education fun and accessible to students of all ages. Somerset Academy offers private lessons for piano, guitar, banjo, ukulele, clarinet, oboe, saxophone, and voice.
Miss Jenifer’s talent for teaching and connecting with children was spotted at a young age. At 18 she began an apprenticeship teaching with Sue Rieger at the Music Station in Loveland. She went on to study with Lindsay Zierolf at the College-Conservatory of Music, University of Cincinnati and has also studied at Harlaxton College in Grantham, England.
Miss Jenifer believes strongly that music should be an essential part of a child’s education and that studying music has a much greater purpose than simply teaching someone to play an instrument. Her students have successfully participated in numerous performances and contests. Several of her students have gone on to become music teachers themselves.
In addition to teaching Miss Jenifer also enjoys performing and continuing her music education by learning new instruments. She currently lives, teaches and performs in Loveland, Ohio.
