A native of Memphis, Tennessee, Jeanetta Hopkins has always had music play a major role in her life. A lifelong learner of music and humanity, she created Bull City Music School to further spread a message of love, respect, and self-confidence.
Love was instilled by her parents and supportive environment. Jeanetta first felt the love of classical music with her uncle, famed jazz pianist, Rozelle Claxton. Knowing that love can spread around she discovered Gospel music with Linda Herring and viola music with Mary Ann Snyder.
Respect for her craft was honed at Overton High School for the Creative and Performing Arts.
She participated in County Wide, Regional and State Orchestras. Playing in these competitive orchestras taught Jeanetta there is no substitute for hard work and dedication. Self- Confidence matured with her as she matriculated to Jackson State University.
There, in Mississippi, a teacher and performer were made. Jeanetta played in the Jackson State University Symphony Orchestra and accompanied the University Choir. At the close of her tenure, she confidently walked away with a degree in Music Education.
Today, Jeanetta instills love, respect, and self-confidence in all of her students.
