Music Therapy Graduate Gives Flexible Singing/Instrument Lessons to Beginning Music Lovers!

Methodology

I would be best to teach at a beginner level, but I can offer a wide range of suggestions about general musicality, practice habits, theory, technique, and singing while playing an accompanying instrument! I can also offer tips on songwriting. I like to teach using the music that YOU love.

Because of my degree is in Music Therapy, my approach is very flexible, acknowledging that each individual has a different background, skill set, pattern of obstacles. I am passionate about teaching students in the style, level, and approach that suits them best, and will support your musical goals so you can feel fulfilled, confident, and expressive in your personal life!

Background

Hi there - I am a graduating Bachelor of Music Therapy student... this means I am trained in general music, voice, piano, guitar, and percussion at a basic to intermediate level (I can also play a little cello!). My main instrument is voice, and I can sing in many styles: classical, pop, blues/soul, etc. I have been teaching on-and-off for several years, to many different types of new musicians: young and old, even adapted lessons for those with developmental disabilities. :)

Hi Everyone,
Thinking of taking piano lessons? Well you have come to the right place. I found Jessica by chance one evening when I was visiting a friend at a nursing home. Jessica and her friends were there volunteering their talents and entertaining the residents. I went up and asked , "Does anyone know someone who can teach me piano'? Jessica said sure she would love to do that. As it turned out I felt hesitant learning by reading music, that's the best way to learn. But Jessica found a way that would work for me. I am a 61 year old student that just wanted to play Christmas Carol's and at sing a longs. I can say that I have enjoyed my piano lessons and would recommend Jessica to teach you and your children. My grandchildren and I had a blast this past Christmas.

Ms. Jurgenliemk teaches with expertise and passion. It is clear that she has had both many years of musical training in various instruments as well as playing for the beauty of expression. I've taken many lessons with Jessica and have come both to know my instrument better as well as myself.
While primarily a vocalist, she is a strong multi-instrumentalist including guitar and piano as well, making her both a well-rounded musician and a excellent teacher.
