  • “I was afraid that my daughter could quit at some point, but instead she enjoys every lesson and practices at home without being told to do so. I highly recommend Ms. Craig, she builds confidence in her students and keeps them motivated!”

  • “My daughter is very creative and has a limited attention span. Jessica is able to keep her engaged throughout the entire lesson by incorporating both “free play” and music fundamentals.”

  • “Jessica has been a very thoughtful teacher to our seven-year-old daughter. She is flexible and willing to change her approach to make sure that the child is engaged. This is something we appreciate as we want music to be fun for our daughter.”

  • “Both my son and daughter have really enjoyed their piano lessons with Jessica. My kids learn in very different ways and Jessica is able to work with each of their unique learning styles.”

  • “Jessica has helped me a lot with my violin studies, her teaching style is easy to follow. She is a very calm person when she teaches and it helps with nerves. She helped me find a style that I enjoy playing but she doesn’t limit people to one style. I think she is a very good teacher and I’m glad I have her to help me.”

  • “My daughter is really motivated in learning how to play piano. I cannot be happier with Ms. Jessica as her teacher. She is very talented and professional.”

  • “Learning the violin is something I’ve wanted to do since I was a kid, and at age 40 I finally got around to it! I feel very lucky to have found Jessica as my violin instructor. She has been fantastic to work with and her insightful lessons are helping me to progress faster than I imagined. And she’s been central in helping me develop good habits and avoid developing any bad ones, which is really important. At first I imagined I would try to learn on my own but I see clearly now that would have been a pretty big mistake. Thanks Jessica!”
