BMP Teaching Artist Spotlight | Jubilee Chen
At the Boston Music Project, we are proud to have an exceptional team with a diverse background of teaching and performance experiences. When our Teaching Artists are not teaching music lessons, they are pursuing their own professional careers as active performers, composers, music producers, dancers, and more!
This year we are excited to welcome Jubilee Chen to the BMP Team as an Upper Strings Teaching Artist!

Massachusetts, who is passionate about cultivating the intersection between music-making and social change.
