Biography
J. Senja Morgan 
 
Senja Morgan comes from a musical family and began teaching voice and piano lessons in her native state of Massachusetts. She has continued teaching since her move to Wheaton in 1993. Her teaching objective is: “To help students of all ages and abilities develop and express their gifts in music.” 
 
In 2008 she began teaching individuals with special needs through the Western DuPage Special Recreation Association, after enrolling her own son (born with Down syndrome) for private percussion lessons. Her experience teaching students with various diagnoses such as autism, visual and hearing impairment has enriched her overall teaching style since then, as she works intently to discover and harness each student’s own particular style of learning.
 
In the musical theater world, Senja has served as musical director, accompanist, vocal coach and actress. Notable roles were “Mabel” (Pirates of Penzance,) “Cinderella” (Into the Woods,) the “Piano-Playing Nun” (Nunsense) and both Peggy and Joanne" (Godspell.) She has coached teens and adults who have landed major roles in local school and community productions.
 
Senja has been a soprano soloist in concert and church events, including a three-week tour of the Orient. She has served as soloist and music director for choral residencies at six cathedrals in the UK including Durham, Salisbury and Wells Cathedral. A choir trip of singers from St. Mark’s Church (Geneva IL) is planned for Ely Cathedral in July 2020.
 
She has served as music director previously in four churches and is currently on staff as Associate Worship Director at First Presbyterian Church of Glen Ellyn. She maintains a private music studio, and continues to teach piano and voice lessons for students with disabilities through WDSRA.
 
Senja received both a Bachelor of Music, and Master of Sacred Music degrees from Boston University, with studies in voice, music education, choral conducting, piano, organ and a professional music teaching certificate. She studied Alexander Technique, choral conducting with Dr. James Jordan at Westminster Choir College, and recently did a private study on “the anatomy of a melody” with choral composer Alice Parker.
