She performed with the Philly Pops and the Opera Company of Philadelphia and as a soloist with the Main Line Symphony Orchestra in Villanova, PA.

Voice lessons - who would have thought I needed them after being a vocalist and songwriter all these years? After going to so many different coaches and music teachers, I finally found one that not only is in touch with the history of music, but also is in touch with the current status of the industry. Jess got me straight to the basics within ten minutes of my first lesson. I discovered I haven't been using my voice to it's full potential of range. I even have a decent bass register, which I never knew how to use properly.
My friend who I brought with me to one of my lessons, not even a singer, wants to take lessons now after seeing how well Jessica conducted my lesson! My song writing skills immediately improved. She is worth every penny, and I mean every penny. Her price is hard to beat. Very impressed with her musical roots, also vocally talented herself.....like the song I wrote 'Finally I Can Put a Name to Beautiful'.
