As a music major I developed a deeper understanding of music theory, piano, voice, and theater. I received my A.A. in Music at College of the Desert and my Bachelor of Music degree at the University of Redlands- which I attended on a music scholarship. I have played leading roles in several operas and musicals in Southern California, including Gianni Schicchi, Die Fledermaus, La Boheme (DTL nominee), The Impresario, The Grand Duke, Patience (DTL award), Cosi fan tutte, Little Women, Seussical, and many more. I have also appeared in several concerts, opera scenes, competitions (winning music scholarships and theater awards), and worked as a singer in churches, restaurants, and in pop bands. I continue to stay active in the performance industry, because performing is a part of who I am and I could never live without it!

With this experience under my belt, I feel a desire to pass on my knowledge to students. I carry a strong passion to help people develop their abilities and make them their own. I truly believe that if someone wants something out of life then they WILL achieve it with dedication, perseverance, confidence, and by having FUN doing it!

Jessie is awesome! As nervous as I was for my first lesson, she instantly put me at ease, put me through the paces of warm-up exercises, and I can't wait until next week!

My daughter in 3rd grade really enjoyed this lesson! Jessie was very nice and kind and Kira even had the opportunity to sign in the first session. These lessons are super convenient for parents that are tired of traveling in the car to non-stop places during the day. Would definitely recommend Ms. Jessie.

Jessie is great! This is my first time taking vocal lessons and wasn't sure what to expect. I'm enjoying the experience so far. She makes me feel comfortable and learning a lot from warm ups we practice. Her knowledge with singing and music is inspiring and she's informative, down to earth, and has a great personality. I know I will reach my goals and can see myself develop a nice voice that will sound great with my lessons with Jessie. She is the kind of instructor I was looking for and look forward to the results.

Jessie is a delight and a very patient teacher. I am older and need things explained sometimes more than once. She was patient and kind. I look forward to continuing my lessons with her.

Jessie is an amazing vocal teacher. Her vocal knowledge is beyond her years. I would highly recommend her. Whether you're young or older (like me), experienced or not. Whether you like opera or pop, she is great!
