Her most recent achievement was graduating from the Australian National University in December 2019 with a Bachelor of Music, majoring in performance (jazz/contemporary voice) and composition.
Jessica’s diverse vocal ability has allowed her to perform at a variety of venues, events and functions. Her greatest honour to date was the invitation to perform for The Governor General Sir Cosgrove, his wife Lady Cosgrove and their guests at Government House in November 2018. Her skill, determination and dedication was recognised when she was awarded the Bill Hyslop Prize for Voice in 2018.
Jessica has been working as Music Tutor for over four years. She is very passionate about working with all age groups and helping them develop not only their music skills but their confidence and creativity. She has a rounded approach to her lessons, covering subjects like technique, theory, sight reading, improvisation, aural training and repertoire development.
Jessica has works with a wide variety of students, and all have shown great improvement with pitch, control and technique. However, her greatest joy comes from the increased confidence she see in her students. She's worked with students who are on the autistic spectrum and students who battle with depression and anxiety and found working with these students, and watching them grow incredibly rewarding.
