Jennifer Gossett, MT-BC is a native of Spartanburg SC but has lived in the Lowcountry for more than half of her life. She grew up in a musical family and followed in the footsteps of her uncle and grandfather by taking up the trumpet as her first instrument. Inspired by the amazing female band directors who taught her, she attended Furman University and earned a degree in Instrumental Music Education. Jennifer taught Band in Berkeley County schools for 8 years, and then led the creation of a brand-new band program at Bishop England High School where she taught for 6 years.
In 2009, Jennifer began her studies at Charleston Southern University in the field of Music Therapy, and she became nationally board-certified as a music therapist in 2012. Since then, Jennifer has worked diligently to bring music therapy services to children with special needs throughout the tri-county area and to promote greater awareness of the power of music to improve the lives of all people, no matter what their challenges may be. She and her husband Kevin (also a music teacher!) live in Hanahan, with their sons Andrew and Ethan. Both boys are proud members of the Hanahan High School Band and the Charleston Symphony Youth Orchestra. In her spare time, Jennifer enjoys performing with the rest of her family in an acoustic rock band, watching British TV series, and exploring the beautiful sights of the Lowcountry.
