What people are saying

  • Testimonial

    If you are looking for a carefully planned, relaxed yet professional experience in composing, Jenni Brandon’s workshops are for you. Even after many years experience composing, I gained a great amount of new knowledge. The combination of score study, collaboration with a professional instrumentalist, private composition lessons, and sharing scores with the participants worked very well, even via Zoom. I felt like we were all in the same room together; the convenience of working from one’s own studio with other composers overcame the two dimensionality of the online time. Jenni’s experience in guiding composers in the development of their pieces was evident from the first. She has a light but sure touch. She encourages at the same time she suggests new ideas that really get you thinking. This workshop also helps diminish the loneliness of always composing by oneself. It was refreshing to find the courage to share one’s work in process.

  • Jim Ruggirello – Musical Notes – Gazette Papers

    [We Are Joy – a piano concerto with choir and chamber orchestra] is wonderful, immediately attractive, full of sweeping lyricism, and with a knockout ending…is intensely emotional, and deserves to be heard and enjoyed again and again.

    Jenni Brandon’s Songs of California contains some of the most imaginative, ingratiating recent chamber music for winds I’ve heard. Delightful!

    Composer Jenni Brandon’s Spider Suite is a wonderfully descriptive five-movement work…Brandon is a master at balancing the beautiful and the silly, at finding that middle ground where storytelling is best. – review of Ceora Winds CD Postcards.

    Jenni Brandon is a fresh voice in classical composition…this CD from a talented young voice should be in your collection.  Ms. Brandon is a composer to watch in the years ahead.
