Janessa Pogue

Janessa is excited to return to Ethos this year! She served as a full-time music teacher in Monument, OR from January 2019, and now is thrilled to return in her next year with AmeriCorps in Monument, OR. She lives with her family in Kimberly, OR now, but has had the opportunity to live in Wisconsin, SW Colorado, and West Texas. She has a passion for music, both learning it herself and teaching others. She specifically enjoys playing and listening to the bluegrass, Celtic, classical, gospel, folk music, and country genres.

Piano is her primary instrument, but she is proficient also on the mandolin, guitar, voice, and violin. She also enjoys teaching herself cello. She has had 3 years of private instruction in piano and plans to attend the Bradford Christian College in the fall of 2020 to obtain a degree in Christian Education.

When not playing or teaching music, she enjoys hiking, reading, audiobooks, baking, family road trips, Bible studies, and doing laundry (yes, she’s not kidding).

 Through her passion for music, Janessa hopes to inspire the youth in her classes to love and pursue all kinds of music throughout their own lives and careers.
