Jessica D. New York, NY

About Me

About Jessica:

Jessica is known worldwide as a writer and musician who uses her own comedy, illustration, videos and crafts in her performances. She tours the US and the UK regularly and has performed in many festivals including the Reading & Leeds Festival, Latitude Festival, Montreal Comedy Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Dublin Comedy Festival, NY International Children’s Film Festival and more.

Jessica’s comedy and ideas are inspired by being the oldest of 6 girls and growing up in a small town in Maine, where she taught Sunday school and counseled teens and tweens in a local after school program for four years. When Jessica was 19, she moved to Philadelphia to study animation after winning a scholarship to the Art Institute of Philadelphia, and relocated to NYC shortly after graduating.

Her unique music, performances, art and internet videos have won many awards, garnered much praise, and have also been publicly denounced by the US Catholic League.

She has performed her music and written segments and songs for television (including ABC’s “Good Morning America”, MTV’s “I Bet You Will”, Fox News “Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld”, TBS’s “Saving Grace” website and “The Tyra Banks Show”), radio (including “The Opie and Anthony Radio Show”, BBC’s “Loose Ends Radio Programme” and BBC’s “The Simone Show” in the UK), feature films (including “What Would Jesus Buy?” directed by Morgan Spurlock), and stages across the US and the UK (including London’s prestigious Soho Theatre, NYC’s Irving Plaza, Joe’s Pub and The Bowery Ballroom as John Waters’ opening act, and LA’s Troubadour).

*** Lesson Details ***
Taking lessons with Jessica is fun and challenging. Jessica is like a cool aunt or a playful big sister who likes to have a good time but who also wants to teach you to play guitar or ukulele and sing, hopefully at the same time. Singing and playing at the same time can be really tricky. But with Jessica's laid back style and attention to your needs as a student, you will go as fast or as slow as is comfortable for you. Jessica works with classic rock and folk songs as your step ladder for learning. Jessica also can help you develop your own musical styles and teach you to write YOUR OWN SONGS from beginning to end if that is of interest to you.

*** Studio Equipment ***
amp, microphone, keyboard, guitar, ukulele, stands

*** Travel Equipment ***
Guitar and Ukulele. Students can borrow and rent instruments initially but must get their own, as soon as possible

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25
lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.I teach classic stringed instruments such as acoustic / electric guitar and ukulele, and several unusual instruments such as singing saw and electronic and standard autoharp. I can also teach singing, songwriting and offer guidance on how to monetize your band, including acquiring sponsorships and arranging local and international tours. I have a very easy going style which consists of the two of us sitting one on one and starting with the basics, then moving on to learn others' songs (The Beatles or other classics are a good place to start) and then trying to compose our own songs, as well, if that is of interest.

About Me

Hello,

Thanks so much for taking the time to inquire about studying music with me.

Music and studying music has always been a passionate experience for me. I have been so blessed with the teachers and fellow musicians in my life. You should realize that your study of music may start with me, but it will last your entire lifetime. I hope that all of your life you will have a rewarding relationship to music and the spirit of great sounds!

I'm originally from California. I have performances degrees from the Grove School, as well as San Diego State University.
I currently reside in New York City where I get the chance to play with some many great musicians. I have performed in great jazz clubs in New York, on Broadway, and performing arts centers across the country. I'm currently playing in many great performing ensembles. I have put out two CD's as a leader and played on multiple CD's for other artists.

It has been my pleasure to teach privately, as well as in the classroom for 7 years. I enjoy performing many different types of music. I pride myself on being very open minded in terms of musical taste. Never apologize for liking what you like! I bet there is something in that music which is great. I can't wait to learn something from the music you introduce to me.

I be glad to provide a full resume to anyone who requests it.

*** Lesson Details ***
My most important goal for each student is that they get to where they want to be musically.

I want the student to be able to play the way he or she wants to play. If you want to learn to play one song, that is great! If you want to learn to play one classical etude that is just as great! If you want to learn how to play in a salsa band, bravo! I treat the desires of my students as my curriculum. Each student will receive special prep time from me each week. I pride myself in taking the time and energy to prepare for each meeting. Every time you complete a lesson, it is my hope that you are walking away as a better musician/bass player.

Now I realize that not every student my know exactly what they want. Maybe, they just want to learn a little bass for fun...guess what...that is awesome!

In the beginning I hope to find what will musically interests you the most. Usually, you might have a goal that requires you to play on a higher level than you do presently. If that is true, we might take some time to figure out a road map to get you to that place. Along the way, I'm sure you and I will learn many new concepts and techniques that aid you in becoming the bassist/musician you want to be.

And rest assured, the teacher always learns from the student...this is the best part of teaching: learning from the student.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio: 3 electric basses, plenty of amps and chords, one acoustic bass, piano, ukulele, guitar, computer playback and recording.

*** Travel Equipment ***
As requested

*** Specialties ***
I have been lucky to play tons of different types of music. I believe I can give musicians and aspiring musicians a deep understanding of what is most important in many different styles of music. Music I have been lucky enough to study and play professionally: Jazz, Rock, Funk, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, Blues, Classical, Pop.
I'm also a very good transcriber, so if there is a song you heard on the radio we can definitely play it! Ear training could be an area in which I could be of service to you as well.
I have many arranging and composing credits and I would be glad to help students in this area whenever requested.
