Ms. Jerilynn Harris, Sinfonietta Conductor

Jerilynn Harris earned her Bachelor of Music Education from Pacific Lutheran University. She is currently working as as a string specialist with Spokane Public Schools and is a private cello instructor.

Prior to Jerilynn's move to Spokane in the summer of 2016, she taught for eight years in the Bethel School District where she helped to grow a program from three full-time itinerant strings teachers and around 200 students to over 1,000 students and more than ten full-time teachers. The collaborative partnership that Jerilynn formed with the Tacoma Youth Symphony, where she also worked as a cello and bass section coach, had a large influence on the quality of her performing groups and on the individual musicianship of her students.


Jerilynn believes that the symbiotic relationship between school programs and youth symphony organizations is key to maintaining a thriving arts sector in any community.
