Ukulele Lessons & Literary Arts Classes

Jill Geddes has an extensive music background. Upon graduating from high school, she was cast in the role of Peron’s Mistress in Harold Prince’s National Tour of Evita. From there, she went on to star in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Into The Woods as Cinderella and then played the lead role of Fantine in the National Tour of Les Miserables and many other shows. She studied Music at Indiana University School of Music and Boston University and teaches an early childhood program called Music Together in Tarrytown at the JCC.

She began studying the ukulele several years ago when her guitar was being fixed and she has never stopped playing it. She loves the versatility of the instrument and the joy it brings to her life and those she teaches. “Ukuleles are like potato chips – you can’t have just one!” She owns several ukuleles and will supply one to anyone who would just like to try before they buy.

Jill works at Strawtown Elementary School in West Nyack. She continues to perform and sing, but her favorite thing to do is teach the ukulele to children and adults.
