Jennifer Meckler
Orchestra Director

Hello! I conduct the Orchestra, after-school Symphony, and instruct piano & 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. Travel is important to me to learn about the cultures of the world. I have performed as principal violist in a European tour during high school, and most recently I have visited Japan. This is my fifth year teaching in public schools and my second year at WMC.  

I am available via email with any questions or concerns (
