My name is Jennifer Schweigert. I am the proud director of the Mighty Madison Orchestra. I recently returned to teaching after several years of managing a local favorite breakfast restaurant. Teaching has always been a passion of mine and I am honored to return to work with the great students at Madison for my 2nd year!
I grew up in Abilene, Texas and am a proud product of AISD. I graduated from Cooper High School in 2004. While a student at Cooper, I played viola in the Cooper Orchestra and I also played clarinet in the Awesome Cooper Band. I was also one of the original members of the group Revolution! After graduating, I attended Texas Tech for a semester before transferring to Hardin-Simmon University. I was in the University Symphony Orchestra and the Going Band from Raiderland. During my time at HSU, I was a member of the Collegiate Orchestra, HSU Orchestra, HSU Concert Band and the World Famous Cowboy Band. I graduated in 2010 with a Bachelors of Music Education degree. I have also been a member of FBC's Celebration Orchestra since 2005. I continue to play in many community ensembles such as the Civic Orchestra of Abilene, Abilene Community Band, and various other chamber ensembles.
