~ Private Lesson Info ~


Hola! Thank you for considering me in supporting your musical journey. To make it easier for you to decide if we are a good fit for one another, here are my beliefs about teaching music …


I believe music was intended to be creative, fun, soulful and ever-unfolding. I believe everyone has their own style of performing, learning and growing. It is my job to get to know you and your style, so I can help create an experience you enjoy. I believe music is more than a technical tool, it is an instrument for expressing what we feel but don’t necessarily “know” how to say in day to day life. I believe it is not only my job to help you expand your knowledge, but also to help you connect to yourself artistically.


I guarantee you will learn and you will grow. And I guarantee I will learn and grow. It is up to you and I to be open to the experience and to watch it unfold as it will. So, following are the technical details, to help us get up and running. Let me know if you have any questions.

Cancellation Policy

The following policies are in place so we respect one another’s time. It is my commitment to follow all of the policies I put in place and I request the same from those I teach. The sooner students are able to let me know they need to cancel / reschedule, the better. This allows me to fit other students in for make ups, etc. I appreciate it greatly.  – Jess


  • 24 hr min. notice required in order to reschedule a make up lesson
  • Lessons cancelled with less than 24hrs notice will not be rescheduled, nor refunded
  • Make up lessons must be re-scheduled within 6 months. After the 6 month window, the lesson will not be made up & payment is taken.
  • When ending lessons, please let me know as soon as you know
    • It is usually a little sad for me haha and I want to know in good time. This way I can review all the information you need to head out on your own.
    • Because lessons are paid one month in advance & all payments are final, you probably want to finish your full month!
    • If you seriously need to get outta here, you can transfer your lesson credit to a friend 🙂
