Office Hours: Sun - Tues by Appointment

Jennifer is a seminarian in her final year at Meadville Lombard Theological School and a Candidate for Unitarian Universalist Ministry. Raised in a secular family but longing for religious community, she found her spiritual home as a young adult in the freethinking, open-hearted, justice-seeking Unitarian Universalist faith. Prior to answering the call to ministry, Jennifer’s winding vocational journey included stops in literary studies,  nonprofit communications, and childbirth coaching. She is delighted to be learning and growing into religious leadership with the support of First Parish Chelmsford.

Office Hours: By Appointment

     I am a pianist/organist, guitarist, composer and music teacher who grew up in Westford, MA. I started piano lessons at age 7, guitar lessons at age 11 and eventually received my BA in Piano Performance from UMass Lowell as a young adult. I studied organ with Dr. John Ogasapian and served as his Assistant Organist at St. Anne's Church in Lowell from 1997-1999. I later became Interim Organist and Choir Director after Dr. Ogasapian's departure. I then served as Music Minister at St. John's Episcopal Church in Lowell from 2000-2014. I began my work at First Parish in 2014. I enjoy performing eclectic piano concerts, juxtaposing classical, jazz and original compositions. A perpetual student of music, I also studied piano with Constantine Finehouse and jazz piano theory with Steve Hunt

     I own Steve Zocchi Piano Studio where I teach approximately 35 students per week. My teaching philosophy (and my musical philosophy in general) is based on kindness, patience, fun and hard-work..."Fun-Work" if you will. I believe that music can be used to elevate the human spirit and affirm the beauty of life.  I have recorded two CD's of original compositions and improvisations which can be found online. I live with my wife Meghan, and our three young sons, in Acton MA.
