Jen Rafferty has been a music teacher for over a decade and has become the Chairperson for the Music Department in the Cortland City School District. I truly believe she is an Instrument for Change in engaging more students into music. This engagement has ignited music in the community. Jen recently finished writing a book “A Place in the Staff”, and writes frequently in her blog which can be found here: year Jen lit up the stage at the Empire Longevity Symposium by doing what she loves most:engaging people into their own music. It was great. Give this one a listen, and get your music going.
