Trained in both Australia and the US, Texas based saxophonist, Jessica Voigt-Page has been described by her colleagues as a “tour de force”. Inspired by the careers and lifestyles of colleagues both in and outside of music, Jessica has dedicated the latest part of her career to exploring ways in which young musicians can establish themselves in the world around them, and can maximise their impact while leading fulfilling, sustainable lives.

This exploration has led Jessica to hold, create and experience a wide range of opportunities, and to pursue unique paths throughout her career.

Currently, Jessica serves on faculty at Baylor University where she teaches applied saxophone, chamber music, and saxophone methods, and will be teaching her music entrepreneurship course in Spring 2020. Jessica has also lectured on various entrepreneurship and professional development topics at Baylor since joining the faculty in 2017.

More about me:

...
I am an Australian Saxophonist who moved to the US to pursue graduate studies in classical saxophone.

With 14 years of teaching experience, 3 degrees in saxophone performance and a diploma from a study program in France, I can guarantee that our work together will not only make you a better saxophonist, but you'll have a great time along the way!

My students have graduated from high school and been accepted to study in the leading music schools in the US, including Indiana University, The University of Michigan, The University of Texas at Austin, The University of Iowa, Michigan State University and many more.

I am also serving on the board of advisors of the Elise Hall Saxophone Competition, which exists to to encourage and support the professional and artistic development of young female-identifying, trans, and non-binary saxophonists by providing career building and performance opportunities.

If you're serious about saxophone, want to have fun, and be supported by a teacher who truly cares about your growth as a musician and a human, get in touch today!
