Bridget Jankowski is a pianist working in the northeast Ohio area as a church musician, teacher, accompanist and workshop clinician. In 1998 she became the first licensed Andover Educator (with colleague Jeanne Hansen). She has logged over 150 hours of training and study with noted Alexander Technique Teacher and Andover Educators® founder Barbara Conable. She now works with teachers and students on movement and technical issues via the course “What Every Musician Needs to Know About the Body”. She has worked to help injured and uncomfortable musicians overcome their disabilities and technical problems, and incorporates these ideas into her daily work with students, church choirs (children and adult), and cantors.

Her professional affiliations include the National Association of Pastoral Musicians, the Suzuki Association of the Americas, MTNA (nationally certified), and Ohio MTA.

She currently resides in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio with her husband and three teenage sons.
