I am a local small musician who does soprano and baritone ukulele cover videos. I record my own songs and post them online, and help others do the same! I learned guitar and viola at a young age and then taught myself how to play the soprano and baritone ukulele. I have been taught by amazing teachers, taught some of the best students including myself! My different experiences as student, teacher, and musician make learning a lot of fun. I take a lot of influence from popular you tube musicians and love using that as a tool to teach and learn. I even have an extra ukulele you can use during class if you need! I will have helpful worksheets and tools for you to take home and practice on your own time as well.

Currently I record cassettes and digital audio files. I have also created really fun music videos with all of the music produced myself. Through high school I was in a few bands, and I have always had such a huge passion for music and seeing that passion grow in others.

My clients learn how to play in my comfortable and creative home. I have beautiful acoustics in my living room, with inspiring artwork on the walls and a ton of natural light. I work with singers and uke players of various age and talent range!

Experience

Nanny/Tutor
Feb 2012 - Aug 2014
College Nannies and Tutors

As a nanny and tutor, one of my best qualifications was understanding how children learn. I didn't only help with math and English, but I helped them learn how to play instruments for their music classes!

Jess helped my 5 year old not only learn ukulele but she also gave my child confidence in her abilities to learn other instruments and play for our family. She's come out of her shell a lot since learning and I couldn't be more grateful!

Jess is really great! Her whole demeanor is just light and fun. It's easy to learn from her. Totally worth it!

Jessica is a very skilled and talented musician and genuinely kind instructor. She was very patient with me and my lack of experience with the ukulele. Her lessons were not only simple but fun to do as well. I'd recommend her to anyone interested in learning the ukulele!

Such a wonderful teacher. She's sweet, patient and attentive w/ my son. I can't rave enough about Jess as a teacher. 😃

Jessica can play both baritone and soprano uke well and has both available to use at her location. she is very helpful with grasping concepts in theory (i've never played an instrument before or done a music class) and for adapting new fun songs that are of appropriate difficulty to play and keep you progressing on uke.
