Music and the arts have been a large part of my life since I was a child.
I have performed in numerous operas, musicals and plays. Favorite roles include the Witch in Into the Woods, Agathe in Der Freischutz, the Countess in Marriage of Figaro, and Fastrada in Pippin.
I have a degrees in Opera Directing, Vocal Performance and Theatre Arts. I started teaching acting classes in 2001, and have coached voice since 2010. I have studied voice with James Gardner, former head of opera at Julliard School of Music, Matthew Oglesby, vocal area coordinator for the WTAMU School of Music, and Darlene Wiley, head of voice department at Butler School of Music, UT and William Lewis, dramatic tenor with 35 years experience singing at the Metropolitan Opera.
I direct operas, design costumes, teach whenever and whatever I can, and love spending time with my cat.
Absolutely fantastic!! Very knowledgeable and helpful. I’ll definitely be booking her again!!
Jessica is awesome! She is warm, patient, and kind. We hit it off right away. I can't wait for my next lesson. Heather. ;-)
