Nicole Jaworski, founder of Jamberry Music, is a local musician and mother living in Evanston, IL. She is a trained classical singer with degrees in Vocal Performance from Rice University and the New England Conservatory of Music. After traveling the country singing opera, she returned to the Chicago area to explore additional ways to bring joy, healing and growth to others using music. This pursuit led her to a study of music therapy and teaching early childhood music.
