Jill Dawe began playing trumpet at age eleven. She is a graduate of Memorial University’s Bachelor of Music/Bachelor of Music Education conjoint degree and Master of Music Education programs. Jill works with the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District, teaching junior high classroom and choral music in the St. John’s area. She also maintains a private trumpet studio.
Making the balance between teaching and performing a core goal, Jill plays around town in a variety of groups and seeks out opportunities to work with young people. She currently holds the second trumpet position in the Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra. She has also been fortunate to play and record with Hey Rosetta! and The Fortunate Ones.
