Owner and Director, Black Swamp Fine Arts School, LLC

Sophia Jarrell is the owner and director of the Black Swamp Fine Arts School LLC  in Bowling Green, Ohio. The school provides instruction in various facets of the arts for babies, children, teens and adults. It’s the mission of the school to develop not only fantastic artists, but beautiful souls through an encouraging and positive atmosphere.

In addition to overseeing the business activities of the school, Jarrell teaches a studio of violinists, runs rehearsals for full-scale ballet productions and mentors faculty members who are developing their own pedagogical skills.  

Before launching the school in 2016, Jarrell had already been actively involved in presenting and coordinating arts events. These include choreographing and presenting ballets for children, coordinating and promoting the tour of a German youth orchestra to her hometown and serving as the music director for The Radiant TV Network

Educating other artists and entrepreneurs about flourishing in business is one of her passions. Jarrell has presented on this topic at the National String Teachers Association Conference and as a guest speaker at Bowling Green State University. 

Jarrell participated in The Hatch in 2016. That same year, she earned her Bachelor of Musical Arts degree with an entrepreneurship minor from BGSU. Two years later, she received her Master's in music performance, also from BGSU.

In 2017, she married her Falcon Flame, Michael. The couple welcomed two sons, Charlie and Frankie, in 2019 and 2020.
