Jennifer Meckler
Orchestra Director

Hello! I am Ms. Jennifer Meckler, and I direct the Orchestra & Symphony, and instruct Music Production classes at West Morris Central HS.

I grew up near Harrisburg PA and attended Cumberland Valley HS in Mechanicsburg, PA. I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education, with a minor in Art History, at Ithaca College in Ithaca, NY. Before teaching at West Morris Central, I taught middle school orchestra & general music, as well as elementary strings, in Canton, MA, outside of Boston. In 2015 I attended the four-week Conductors Institute at Bard College and learned advanced orchestral conducting from Harold Farberman. I am continuing my studies in orchestral conducting through private conducting lessons with Dr. Sandra Dackow at William Paterson University, where I am pursuing a Master of Music Education. My major instrument  is viola, and I am also well-trained on violin, cello, and double bass as well as piano. This is my sixth year teaching in public schools and my third year at WMC.  

I am available via email with any questions or concerns (
