I am a professional cellist with a graduate degree in music and extensive performing and teaching experience. I look forward to working with you or your child to help accomplish your goals and have fun making music! Lessons are tailored to each students needs and abilities, and I have vast experience working with students of all ages and abilities, from elementary students to college students. I teach online and in-person lessons.

I can provide private lessons for beginner-intermediate level violin and viola students who are in elementary-middle school. I also provide beginner-advanced cello lessons for students of all ages.

Just had a great first lesson for my six year old daughter who is a complete beginner. She had a lot of fun and is looking forward to continuing to learn about the violin.

Jessica is a passionate musician who is as equally skilled at teaching her craft to children as she is knowledgeable about Cello. She has been detail oriented, but she has also been exceptionally patient and kind. I have been thrilled with Jessica's offering of in-home lessons. With 4 children, I already do too much chauffeuring for school and sports activities, which would have made music lessons for my youngest very difficult. My 10yo has literally stated that she "loves" Jessica and that "she's so sweet." We have only seen Jessica twice so far, but we hope to continue our lessons with her.

My 10yo son had his first lesson with Jessica and he said it was the "best lesson ever." He is very much looking forward to his next lesson.

Jessica arrived on time and prepared. She was kind, smiled and patient with her student (10 year old girl). My daughter loved her first lesson and is excited for the next one.
