About the teacher

Hi! Thanks for visiting the about the teacher page. I’m Jeannine Haden (Hebb) - the sole instructor at Mine Street Music. I’m a graduate of Berklee College of Music with 15 years of professional teaching experience in an abundance of settings. As a private educator, I’ve been employed at top music schools throughout the northeast teaching voice, piano, and songwriting, while simultaneously working extensively as a recording artist, composer, and performer. I’ve taught and/or directed over 1,000 students from the ages of 2.5-87.

Along with teaching privately, I hold a CE in K-12 Music in NJ, and have worked in classrooms ranging from Pre-K to College. I have experience working with students with learning disabilities, having worked for 4 years as a middle school music and band teacher at the Churchill School in Manhattan (a school specializing in language based learning disabilities and ADD/ADHD). I studied pedagogy at the graduate level at Hunter College in NYC, and have served as a music director and accompanist for countless school productions at the middle, high school, and college level. In addition to managing Mine Street Music, I’m currently employed at Mercer Community College as an adjunct in contemporary applied music (voice).

In my own music career, I’ve worked comprehensively in the industry as a songwriter, performer and recording artist. I’ve released two albums of my original music, and have written, recorded, and arranged for numerous independent and label-signed acts throughout the US. I’ve toured nationally, appearing with grammy nominated and award winning artists, while working regularly performing at weddings, corporate events, and restaurants.     

My students range from hobbyist musicians to budding professionals. Many are involved in music additionally through school and community, and most audition and perform on a regular basis. Students have gone on to study music in college (and beyond) and perform at the professional level, releasing their own albums, and appearing as contestants on competitive singing shows. I have had students on so many stages - from intimate local open mics to Carnegie Hall!!

I forge long-lasting relationships with my students, and have worked with all of my current students for years.

I can assist in in preparation for college auditions, state and regional competitions, and musical theater auditions (as well as provide accompaniment for any of these situations).

Additionally, I am available to provide tutoring for AP music theory, placement, and PRAXIS exams.
