Jill Trinka, PhD, is well known by parents and elementary music educators as a dynamic, winsome, and energetic teacher and performer. She has been singing folk songs since she was a kid. Professor Trinka’s performances bring new life to these musical and cultural treasures. Jill accompanies herself on the dulcimer, autoharp, guitar, and banjo, but sometimes she just sings—in her own inimitable manner.
