Teaching since:


I'm a professional violinist with 20+ years experience as well as an electronic music producer/artist. Seems like a weird combo, but I love doing both!

I work as a session string player, and I also produce alongside some of LA's most celebrated musicians in the neo-soul, electronic beatmaking, and lo-fi hip hop communities.

Students can expect to be given a completely 100% unique curriculum to work with their goals -- I often ask students to give me a list of people they like to listen to, and then we figure out how we can best achieve a skill set that works for their musical lifestyle.

All of my students walk away with knowledge of fundamental music theory as well as the tools to strengthen their sound, both on a real instrument and on a computer.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

First off, Jesse is a simply extraordinary violinist. She brings a deep level of skill to each lesson with us. Second, her enthusiasm for the instrument has definitely inspired my daughter to elevate her level of play. I cannot recommend Jesse enough!

Before moving to LA, Jesse taught at my music studio where she was hands down one of our most popular teachers. Students of all ages loved taking lessons with Jesse because she made them fun AND educational.

With backgrounds in classical, traditional/folk, and contemporary music she draws from a vast resource of teaching materials to meet the needs of virtually any aspiring student.
