Fun fact: Jenn may be a dentist, but she secretly loves to munch on sweets. Shh—don’t tell her patients!
Jennifer Yu is a general dentist who is proud to call Calgary her new home. Beyond her passion for dentistry, she wants to spread her love of classical music and wishes everyone to have the privilege to learn and enjoy it at an early age. She finished RCM Grade 10 with First Class Honours with Distinction when she was 15, and following a musical hiatus during post-secondary school, is now picking up piano from where she left off! In 2018, she was invited to compete in a concerto competition in Kansas, where she rekindled her love for music. Her next project is the Honens Pro-Am this year.
While piano has always been her main passion, Jennifer also plays violin, flute, and a Chinese instrument called the pipa. She played first violin with the Edmonton Youth Orchestra for several years and will be performing with the Pittsburg Symphony Orchestra (in Kansas) later this year.
Jennifer has been teaching piano since 2007. Currently she teaches piano online every Sunday. In her spare time, she loves to play in ensembles, either as an accompanist or violinist. She previously accompanied a choir, and now enjoys organizing hobbyist ensembles. Her most recent project has been a piano-clarinet-cello trio.
With her recent move to Calgary, Jennifer hopes to continue her engagements in the community and find new spots for her other hobbies—eating and traveling!
