About this pro

I've been writing music since I was 4, I went to UTA for vocal music education and music is something I love very deeply. I'm currently a student at Berklee College of Music for Songwriting and Producing music. My goal is to start a recording studio, helping the young and bright songwriters realize their next ablum and start performing live. 

When i first started writing music, I was my biggest critic. I didn't like any songs i had written, and that was so discouraging for me, so i made it a goal to start writing music that even i want to listen to. After years of practicing on my own, and then being taken in by a more experienced songwriter, I've started loving my own music. Now it's my turn to take in a new songwriter and help them make music they like.

    My daughter loves Jessie, she’s an excellent teacher!

  • Mallory

    I have taken voice lessons with Jessica for a few months and already seen a lot of improvement in my singing ability! She is extremely friendly and makes me feel comfortable about my singing even when I mess up. I definitely will be continuing my lessons, and would recommend her to beginners and experts alike!

if you have financial promblems, i can always help you work around it but my standard is $45 per hour lesson, and $25 for a half hour lesson. if we have a regular weekly schedule, you'll pay every month, if we're on a lesson to lesson basis, you'll pay every lesson


How did you get started teaching?

I started "teaching" when i was about 12 at my fine arts school, little kids would pay me in quarters for teaching them how to play coldplay songs on the piano :)

but i started teaching for real during an internship with Travis Academy of Fine Arts, where i taught high school students how to play keys with a band and teach basic harmony logistics for live sets


What types of students have you worked with?

mostly high school age students, but I've had a few middle and elementary school students as well. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I was reminiscing on some advice i was given by my mentor about context in writing, and i found myself saying the exact same thing to a student a few days later. He then wrote one of my favorite songs he's ever done, I was so proud of him. Passing down lessons is so important.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Find someone who makes you feel comfortable, comfortable with workshopping your song, comfortable with getting critique and encouragement. Find someone you vibe with really well.
