Meet Our Instructors

Dr. Barger founded Cornerstone Academy of Clarinet to bring university-level clarinet instruction to anyone who shares her love for all things clarinet and wants to both begin developing or fine-tune their existing clarinet skills.  As Mentoring Instructor, she personally advises and supervises each of her hand-picked Cornerstone Instructors as they use her teaching styles and methods to guide their students toward Excellence in Artistry!  Each instructor has studied extensively at a very advanced level with Dr. Barger at the University of Nebraska--they are "the best of the best." In addition to her instructors, Dr. Barger also interacts with all Cornerstone Academy Students.  She is also available on an extremely limited basis to serve as a student's sole instructor, but space is extremely limited.

Jennifer Reeves

Jennifer Reeves is currently pursuing a Master of Music degree in Clarinet Performance at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where she is an active participant in the University Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, Wind Ensemble and Graduate Chamber Music program. Reeves joined Lincoln's Cornerstone Academy of Clarinet as an Instructor in August 2013.

Prior to moving to Lincoln, Reeves attended the University of Tennessee at Martin where she won the First Annual Friends of Music Concerto Competition in 2009. She was a substitute clarinetist for the Jackson Symphony Orchestra in Tennessee and the Paducah Symphony in Kentucky. In the summer of 2012, the Four Stikx Clarinet Quartet (co-founded in 2010 at UTM) was invited to present recitals at Mahidol University and Silpakorn University in Thailand (as a member of the quartet and as a soloist). In addition to her primary teachers, Diane Barger (UNL) and Amy Simmons (UTM), Reeves worked with several renowned clarinet artists at the 2011 Aria International Summer Academy (Deborah Chodacki, Kenneth Grant, Mark Nuccio and Nathan Williams) and the 2009 Belgian Clarinet Academy (Tamara Cuypers, Robert Spring and Eddy Vanoosthuyse). She hopes to continue her education with achieving a DMA in clarinet performance and pursue a career as a university clarinet professor and world-wide performer.
