25 Years teaching experience, 30+ years performing in most every style!
Instructor at Berklee, Victor Wooten Berklee Camp, Milton Academy, Umass Boston, Phillips Academy, Concord Academy


After teaching at several top Boston schools I have honed my teaching chops and am adept at leading inspired lessons and ensembles. My main goals are to help students be inspired, develop good playing technique, learn exciting repertoire and improve "on stage" skills - the skills that make top bands want to work with you!

Private students - meet once weekly or at your own pace. From beginner to advanced pro, I've taught many people successful approaches to practice and performance. I enjoy helping less experienced students develop fundamentals that are based on interesting music. And with seasoned players I enjoy identifying their goals and finding approaches that will help improve their playing quickly and significantly.

Ensembles perform regularly at Boston area venues like Ryles, Club Passim, Lily Pad, Beat Brasserie, Arts at the Armory, Johnny D's (now closed) and also record CDs in a pro studio! Email me JesseWilliamsMusic (at) Gmail.Com for more info.
