Mrs. Jenny Anderson was born and raised in Northern California, and played flute, piano, and guitar as an elementary school student. She was inspired to become a music teacher after attending Pacific Music Camp at UOP (University Of the Pacific) as an eighth-grader.

She earned her Bachelors Degree in Music Education from the University of the Pacific in 1995. She also earned a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from San Jose State University in 2009. After graduating from UOP, Mrs. Anderson taught private flute lessons, and k-6 music including general music, choir, and band in Galt Jt. Union School District. After moving to the Bay Area, she taught 6-8 band, jazz band and piano in San Jose Unified School District, and for the past 15 years has taught primarily band and jazz band in LGUSD. In 2013, she was honored as a Distinguished Employee in the Los Gatos Union School District. Mrs. Anderson lives in San Jose with her husband, kids, and beloved pets. Her son is an 11th grader and her daughter is a 9th grader – they are both in band, so she is a band mom and a band teacher! She loves being a band teacher and teaches at several music camps every summer.
Born in Spokane, Washington, music has always played an integral part in Mrs. Aryn Krijnen’s life. Studying under Jeri Bentley, a Spokane Symphony player, she accelerated her growth as a violinist, receiving the honor of all-state musician. Her dream of being a violinist and teacher led to studying under Dr. Meredith Arksey at Washington State University, where she obtained her undergraduate degree in music education. There, she was a member of the WSU String Quartet, WSU Symphony Orchestra, and soloed with the WSU Chamber Orchestra. Mrs. Krijnen has continued her performance career as a member of the Washington-Idaho Symphony, Coeur d’Alene Symphony, Silicon Valley Symphony and the Cambrian Symphony. As an educator, Mrs. Krijnen has taught 14 years in the public schools working with students from 3rd-12th grade. She built the orchestra program at Hoover Middle School from 80 members to over 150. In the Saratoga School District, she expanded the orchestra program by 300%. Her tenure there culminated in bringing the after school middle school program into the school day and advocating for equality of arts education for all. Whether coaching small groups, sectionals, chamber music or leading the orchestra, Mrs. Krijnen exemplifies the joy of learning through music. Mrs. Krijnen is married to a cellist and orchestra teacher, Scott Krijnen, and the mother of two children ages 8 and 10. She looks forward to continuing the wonderful orchestra program that is established in the Los Gatos community!
Mr. Corey Miller was born and raised in Northern California and has lived in the state his whole life. He grew up playing the trombone before learning percussion and piano in high school. It was in his junior year of high school that he discovered his love for singing and began training in classical voice. After high school, he moved to Fresno, California to pursue a degree in Physical Therapy at California State University, Fresno. After a year and a half of singing with the Fresno State Choirs, he switched his major to Vocal Performance and later earned his Bachelor of Arts in Music with an emphasis in Vocal Performance. Mr. Miller went on to continue his studies of classical voice at San Jose State University as he earned his Masters of Arts in Music. While at San Jose State he discovered his passion for performing not only in Opera Theatre, but in Musical Theatre. He began performing in and teaching musical theatre productions both semi-professionally and with community theatre companies. This love of teaching musical theatre brought him back to San Jose State to earn his teaching credential so that he could instill his love of music into others. When not teaching, he can be found performing with local choirs and musical theatre companies.
