Voice, Piano, Songwriting/Composition, and more…  

Jesse plays pianoHi, my name is Jesse Maclaine. I am a mezzo soprano, pianist, composer, songwriter, producer, and instructor with over 25 years experience as a professional musician, composer and music teacher. I have been offering private and group music lessons for over two decades. I teach voice, piano, composition/songwriting, music theory lessons. I have helped hundreds of students refine their musical skills and manage obstacles like self doubt and performance anxiety. 

As a music teacher, I offer a panoply of knowledge, advice, and tools especially helpful for beginning-intermediate level singers, pianists, singing instrumentalists, composers, and performers. Decades of experience as a working musician combined with my extensive background in music, dance and theatre allow me to craft every lesson for the unique interests, strengths and weaknesses of each student. I believe relatable content, constructive criticism, positive reinforcement are crucial to making learning fun and ensuring music education is productive and enjoyable for everyone!Jesse singing
