Hello, my name is Stacy Jager. I am a musician located in West Bend, Wisconsin. My primary musical instrument is the piano. I have been playing for 20 years and have enjoyed teaching for over 10 years. I have a great passion for the piano, thanks to the many music teachers I have had.
I grew up in the small town of Beaver Dam. Our house was located in what you would call the middle of nowhere. We lived on 80 acres of land which did not make for a great social environment. As a result, my desire to play piano increased. My parents decided that it was time to look into piano lessons for me. At the age of nine I received my first piano lesson. I really enjoyed learning and practicing.
I gave my first "piano lesson" in grade school and have had a desire to teach others ever since. The first real lesson I taught was in my senior year of high school. After completing all of the Michael Aaron piano series, my teacher recommended I teach at White House of Music in Watertown during my first year of college. I worked there for two years while attending Maranatha Baptist Bible College in Watertown, WI. I later transferred to the University of Stevens Point. There I taught piano lessons through a UWSP program. After deciding to change majors from Music Education to Music Therapy I transfered to my final school. I chose to attend Alverno College in Milwaukee and graduated with a Bachelor's of Music in 2007.
After college I worked at Cedar Community for two years as a music therapist. I provided theme based music therapy groups three to four times a week to multiple households. I really enjoyed working with and getting to know the residents there.
In addition to working at Cedar Community I ran sessions over the summer for children with disabilities. It has been a privilege to use music to help others.
I look forward to sharing my music in many ways, including teaching piano, providing music entertainment, providing music therapy services, and recording my own compositions.
Thank you for taking an interest in my work!
