Certificate of Performance (Piano) - AMEB

Jessica has been playing music for over 20 years and established Learn Music QLD in 2017 after teaching privately for a decade. Jessica grew up learning classical piano, however developed an interest in contemporary guitar and drums in high school before studying pop music at tertiary level. During university, Jessica decided to pair her passion for music with her love of children which is how her private music teaching career started.

 

.Jessica is most passionate about educating music to children because she believes in her philosophy that students of music not only learn how to play an instrument, but they also gain necessary life skills that will be required as they get older. These skills include having the ability to express their emotions, be creative, be disciplined and have excellent managerial skills.

Jessica's students have performed exceptionally well in recent years in both the AMEB and Rockschool exam syllabus.

Aside from teaching, Jessica performs regularly as a pianist at various entertainment venues and also is the drummer of a rock covers band.
