I have been writing music since I was very young. I love the way music connects feelings into something that other people can hear and understand. I like to write songs with depth and can show you step by step how to get started making your own songs.

I can teach basic composition for other instruments, and show you how to use composition software like finale and even Studio One or FL Studio.

About Jessica R.

Hi! My name is Jessica

If you're looking for an enthusiastic teacher who loves her students (and may be a little bit nerdy), look no further! I teach voice, piano, ukulele, and steel drums.

Pasta, my dogs, and the color green are all the greatest things in life.

Music is a personal journey, and is unique for each person. I love to help people discover and grow their own passion. There is nothing more rewarding than being a part of watching someone develop into an artist who then goes on to influence others on their own journey.

Whatever it is you need, whatever you are here for, your passion is what will push you and lead you, and I am just here to help you with whatever direction you choose.

I have a solid background in live performance, professional gigging, music writing, singing, music theory, and of course in your instrument of choice. So whatever you'd like to work on I can help.

Can't wait to meet you! :)

-Jess

Again, Jessica is bringing so much joy to my playing. She really customizes her lessons to my skills and even how my fingers work, and she is teaching me so many new skills, such as playing around with chords and lyrics to write my own songs! I am so grateful for these lessons.

Jessica was so engaging and supportive from a far! After one lesson my very beginner 7 year old daughter left singing Mary Had A Little Lamb and wanting to practice and show off what she has learned!

Jessica you rock. I had a problem making songs too complicated and wordy. Thanks for being so patient and helping me figure out how my songs can still be my own, but sound so much more professional!

Jessica is a top-notch teacher. Our lessons have been super fun and I am extremely pleased. She is very patient and accommodates her teachings' style to my learning style. I strongly recommend her. As a matter of fact, I plan to study ukulele with her soon.

Jessica is a very talented and PATIENT teacher! I am an older student and I find her to be very easy to understand, very encouraging and willing to work at my level and my pace. She is motivating and helps to keep me focused. I have never had an instructor make me feel so capable!! She is truly the best teacher I've ever had!! Highly recommended!!

I've only known Jessica for a couple of weeks now but the lessons I've had with her so far have been amazing! She's an amazing teacher and really connects with you. She adjusts your lessons to how you want to learn and how you learn best. She's great at making sure you get the best learning experience possible! I would highly recommend her for piano, voice, and ukulele lessons!

Expert Productions

Last year the company Expert Productions hired me to begin playing their wedding ceremonies on the Steel Pan. I am often paired with a DJ and am responsible for the ceremony music. Afterwards I play for a medium sized crowd for an hour while they all wait for the bride.

The Panomaniacs

Brian and I play out at the Bon Aire on Sunday from 2-4. On St. Pete beach, this hotel has been around for a long time and we love playing looking out over the water. We play a variety of music, and all of my students are welcome to come out and show off their skills or just hang out.

Vocalist
Sep 2006 - Jun 2010

PCCA

At PCCA we learned how to sing professionally. Italian Arias, German song cycles, large choral works, and musical theater pieces are just some of the music I learned here. At our Senior Recital each student was able to perform 8 professional vocal works in 4 different languages. In addition, we studied upper level music theory, how to direct, and even how to record our original music at the Gibbs campus in Saint Pete.
