Jean Dickinson is an independent contractor who teaches Violin, Viola, Cello, and Bass at Knapton Musik Knotes. She is licensed through the state of Wisconsin to teach K-12 instrumental music and specializes in strings.
Jean is the Conductor for the UW-Rock County Youth Orchestra, and she's a founding member of the Whitewater String Quartet. She has participated as a player in the UW-Rock County Chamber Orchestra, Beloit Janesville Symphony, Choral Union Orchestra, Southern Lakes Orchestra, Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra, and the Waukesha Symphony.
The worst arrangement Jean ever did was rap music on the cello/violin. As you can imagine, it didn't work out very well!
When she's not teaching or playing, Jean collects mid-century jewelry and odd watches. She's an avid gardener, loves to fish and bike, as well as canoe. She hopes to someday master jump-roping and the Pokeman card game that she plays with her grandson!
