Jennifer Moberg is the founder and managing director of the KinderU Suzuki Music Academy, the first Suzuki school in Hong Kong. KSMA has been nurturing a community of dedicated families and providing high quality Suzuki classes in violin, viola, cello, piano, and Gordon Music Play since 2006.

Ms. Moberg was the head of the strings department and taught violin and viola at the Afghanistan National Institute of Music (ANIM) from 2014-2016. ANIM is the only music school in Afghanistan, a conflict zone where, during Taliban times, there was an outright ban on music of any kind. ANIM seeks to revitalize musical traditions, assure musical rights, and serve Afghanistan’s most vulnerable, street kids and orphans.

Ms. Jennifer is a regular clinician at workshops in Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand, and she also adjudicates and consults for the Hong Kong Speech and Music Recital Development Foundation. She is a regular teacher at the AVS Suzuki school in Bangkok, Thailand, where she also is a volunteer teacher at the Immanuel Music School, which provides free music instruction to children living in the Khlong Toey slum. She taught Suzuki violin at the Hartt School of Music, the Talent Education Suzuki School, and the Suzuki Music School of Westport. She ran a non-profit outreach program in inner-city Bridgeport (CT), providing Suzuki lessons to at-risk families. She was the director of music for Rightmind Kindergarten, for which she is currently a consultant.

She began her studies as a Suzuki violinist with John Klein at the Park Avenue Suzuki Studio. She received Suzuki Teacher training at the University of Hartford’s Hartt School of Music with Teri Einfeldt. She also did SAA training with Carrie Reunning-Hummel, Ed Kreitman, Gail Johansen, Ronda Cole and Linda Fiore, and supplemental training with Hwang Kyung Ik (Korea) and Lan Ku Chen (Taiwan). Other mentors include Caonex Peguero-Camillo, Chang Guo, Calvin Lewis, Dr. Paul Chenevey, and Dr. Mark Hartman.

Ms. Jennifer’s JAMM Quartet performed the world premier of Dr. Yu Man Ching’s “Primordial,” and she has performed with the Hong Kong Amadeus Academy Orchestra, the Hong Kong City Chamber Orchestra, the Youngstown Symphony and Greenville Symphony. Ms. Jennifer played with Park Avenue Chamber Music Ltd. and in faculty chamber groups at the Hartt School of Music.

Ms. Jennifer holds a Bachelor of Arts in Music from Houghton College, and is currently completing a Masters degree in International Development at Chulalongkorn University, Thailand.
