Jenni VerHagen has been with Dallas Music since it began in 1988. She is Assistant Director of the school, co-ordinates the First Movement program, and teaches piano and theory.
Jenni was born and raised in Clarksdale, Mississippi. She attended Millsaps College in Jackson where she studied piano with Jonathan Sweat and received her Bachelor of Music degree in Piano Performance. After Millsaps, Jenni came to Dallas and attended SMU where she studied pedagogy with Louise Bianchi and piano with David Karp. At SMU she earned the Master of Music degree in Piano Pedagogy. While at SMU, she also worked under Becky Corley who was on the staff there. A few years later, when Becky started Dallas/Music in a house that she and Mike owned in University Park, she hired Jenni as one of the “master teachers.” They forged a working relationship and friendship that has helped sustain Dallas/Music as one of the premier music schools in Dallas since its inception.
Jenni lives in the country outside of Heath (Rockwall) with her husband Glen, their 5 children–Derek, Drew, Sarah, Graham, and Charlie, their hyperactive and very sweet dog Scout, and their ferocious cat KitKat.
