Great teacher when stable, however, there is an uncertain amount of mental illness this woman battles, and it unfortunately spills over in her business. When looking for a teacher who will be an impression on your child, make sure to ask the hard questions. She is unpredictable at best - a potential danger at worst.

Jessie is absolutely wonderful. I started fiddling 8 months ago, and I had zero background in music. She is so patient, and has all the qualities I could want in a quality teacher. Looking back, I am so happy with how far I've progressed already. Although I moved away from Boise for college, we're trying Skype lessons and I can't wait to resume in-person lessons when I'm back in town! She always has a great schedule to work with too. Thanks for being awesome, Jessie!

We are thankful for being able to find a violin teacher who loves fiddling also! Ms. Jessie is very organized and does a great job teaching and encouraging. She is friendly and professional.

Ms. Jessie is a wonderful instructor to work one-on-one with. No matter your level (I started from the bottom of music really), she is accepting, patient, and encouraging.
She is excellent in teaching all aspects of the violin and music in general and makes sure that you learn how to do it the right way. I learned how to read, write, and count music through her guidance. Her positive attitude makes the process exceptionally fun and you will leave her studio wanting to immediately practice more because you feel confident and capable.
She is VERY flexible in meeting times and always goes out of her way to make sure you get a lesson in for the week if you can't make your usual scheduled time.
The North End Treble Makers also organize group sessions and events which are highly encouraged. Such as playing for retirement centers or putting on shows for friends and family in the park.
I highly recommend Ms. Jessie and the North End Treble Makers for learning any instrument and for introducing music into your life.
I have taken lessons with Jessie for three years. With her patience and guidance I've learned so much. She's an amazing instructor, and will do anything and everything she can to help you learn. I highly recommend her.

I have taken 3 fiddle lessons and am already playing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Fiddlin Frog got me a good deal on a fiddle, electronic tuner, and everything else I need to start playing.

Very nice woman who does a good job explaining terms and procedures for playing violin properly. I have only had one lesson so far but I can tell I will learn a lot from her.
