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.

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.

In addition to 20 years of guitar playing, as well as a bunch of other instruments, I'm also a national Telly and Addy award-winning composer and performer. It's strange to say, but my music is heard by millions of people every day. I compose, perform, and produce music for TV commercials, shows, theatre, dance, and weird short films. As far as my education goes, I've studied guitar with a number of teachers, and studied composition and music theory with Stuart Saunders Smith, Linda Dussman, William Horne, and piano virtuoso, Martin J. Cannelli. After graduating from Loyola University of New Orleans with a degree in English Literature and Music Composition, I was hired as an English professor at Assumption University in Bangkok, Thailand. When I returned to the States, I was hired at an ad agency in Baltimore (where I was born and raised), doing all elements of TV commercial production, from script writing to coffee making to (drumroll please) Music. That's where I learned my way around a professional level recording studio, and got to put all my musical abilities into practice, writing and performing music of all styles, with all kinds of instruments.
In the past 10 years, I've lived in a lot of cities - New Orleans, Chicago, Prague, Bangkok, Berlin, Baltimore - but I finally made it to New York City, and I'm extremely happy to be here. There's so much going on, and so many creative opportunities for musicians - there's never a dull moment. So if you're just beginning music, trust me - you're in the right city to hit the ground running.

Throughout my life, I have always been drawn to music and teaching. That passion would lead me to attend Berklee College of Music, and after graduating, move to New York to pursue a career as a music educator.
I began teaching professionally in 2007 while still attending Chandler-Gilbert Community College. During my time at CGCC, I was a co-founder and tutor of the Music Theory Study Group. In my last year at the college, I won first place in the composition division for the Artists of Promise contest with my electric guitar concerto titled "IDP's of Darfur Prelude and Concerto," which granted me a chance to perform it at the Orpheum Theatre in Phoenix, AZ. Shortly after the performance, I was awarded with the 2008 Most Outstanding Theory and Composition Student Award.
During my time at Berklee, I worked on projects involving composition, performance, and production/engineering. Throughout my time at Berklee, I was featured on several performance and recording sessions as a guitarist. During my last year, I was an orchestrator for "Curtain up!," a student concert that featured original musical theatre works, and was selected to lead The Cooperative Big Band, a student organized ensemble for senior jazz composers.
Currently, I teach children and adults within a wide range of formats including private lessons, summer camp, rock band classes, and theory classes.
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
