Judith English’s interest in and love of music has been life-long. She began playing the piano at the age of ten, the clarinet in 7th grade, and the organ in college. She went to UNH where she earned a BS in Music Education in 1969 and an MA in Music History in 1970. The clarinet was her major instrument. In 1985, she co-founded the Mountain Winds Trio, which consisted of flute, clarinet, and bassoon, and they gave concerts in the North Conway area, as well as playing for weddings.

Judith taught general and instrumental music in the Concord Union School District from 1971 to 1975. During that time, she met her husband, Ben, who also taught in Concord. Upon their move to Jackson in 1976, they both began teaching in the Bartlett School District, with Judith teaching instrumental music. She also has taught music in Jackson, at Central Vermont Academy in Barre, Vermont, and at Cady Christian School in Center Conway.

Hired as an adoption social worker in 1987, Judith worked with prospective adoptive couples as well as birth parents. Having adopted their own twins in 1986, she found that this work was most fulfilling.

Judith has been taking cello lessons in the Adult String Class for the past two years. Last summer she participated in the Mountain Top Summer Chamber Music Camp and has played in the Mountain Top Orchestra in the past. Judy-ith became an advisor to the Board at MTMC in 2015 and joined the Board of Trustees in 2016.
