Hi. This is Jessica H. Currently I just graduated from San Francisco conservatory of music with Masters degree. I am a very patient person who has huge passion about working with kids.I have been teaching piano over 15 years. Since I have been teaching a quite long time. I have had students who past the highest level of ABRSM exams. I can be more serious and push a student to get ahead, or simply teach to have fun - to appreciate and enjoy music. I have learned, is to expect the best, pay closest attention to the students - to what they are ready for, what they want, what they are struggling with, and have a good sense of humor. Inspiring and developing students passion into music.
By the way before you book lessons I want you to know that I only take the students who are willing to take lesson weekly.

Jessica is a professional. Her studio is set up to accommodate a student in maximum privacy and comfort. She Is a lovely young woman who obviously enjoys her craft and is skilled at teaching in a compassionate way yet sets a high standard for her student. It would be important for a student to be self-motivated to PRACTICE diligently. Jessica does not demand that a student practice, but expects that her student will have practiced. I compliment her teaching. One final note: she is kind.

Eliana had her first lesson with Jessica yesterday. It was a very happy experience. Jessica is a skilled teacher, she immediately connected with Eliana and made her feel successful. We are looking forward to our next lesson.

Quality instruction and developed good rapport with my child. Taught at the right level and was one of the only instructors we tried who actually mentioned proper hand position and technique.

I knew Jessica would be the best choice after reading her About Me section... She has been my son's piano teacher since last year. We worked very well since then. My son loves play piano . She is very sweet and patient piano teacher I ever seen.
I would like to recommend her to all my friends.

Jessica is an awesome Music and Piano teacher! She has a lot of experience both as a musician and teacher. She is very patient, keeps things fun and challenging! I especially like how she illustrates musical concepts and dynamics. She seems to be comfortable with teaching both adults and children ( I am an adult, and she also teaches my kids). I highly recommend her!!!! You will learn a lot and be inspired!
