Jessica has always been interested in teaching an education. While at school she conducted, led and accompanied her own choirs. During her time at Cambridge she assisted The St Catharine's College Chapel Girls' Choir, helping with rehearsals and was an Assistant Conductor for Robinson College Chapel Choir, Cambridge. She was fortunate enough to have conducting lessons with Stephen Cleobury, Tim Brown and Stephen Layton to name but a few.
On leaving Cambridge she became the Musician in Residence at St George's School in Ascot where she helped to conduct and run various orchestras and choirs, as well as teaching classroom music from age 11 to A-level standard. She was then appointed to be the Head of Music at College Francais Billingue Londres where she too ran many sucessful choirs that gave numerous concerts. She has privately taught singing, piano and music theory for over 5 years from beginners to post Grade-8 pupils.
" Jessica is a fun and enthusiastic singing teacher, my daughter really enjoyed working with her and her voice really improved following their lessons together."
Jessica is an experienced accompanist for examinations and concerts, having accompanied vocal classes at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and many ABRSM examinations.
She is also a keen composer. During her time at Cambridge University she learnt composition with Jeremy Thurlow and Robin Holloway. She was fortunate enough to study composition with Adam Gorb at The Royal Northern College of Music.
