Jessamine Myers has been playing the flute since she was 11 years old, and piano since she was 5. In 2014 she graduated from Fairfield High School, where she performed for various audiences both solo and with ensembles. She graduated from the University of Kentucky with her bachelor’s degree in music education in 2018, through which she has gained experience teaching all woodwind and brass instruments. While at the university, Jessamine had the privilege of playing in several elite ensembles, such as the University of Kentucky Wind Ensemble and Symphony Band, and was selected to perform in the Kentucky Intercollegiate Band. She was also selected for the Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Schuyler Robinson Award, along with other awards through the University of Kentucky music department. Jessamine has studied under Dr. Julie Hobbs, and has participated in masterclasses with several well-known artists such as Dr. Carmen Lemoine, Dr. Rebecca Johnson, and an ensemble masterclass with flutist and composer Ian Clarke at the Central Ohio Flute Association Festival.

During lessons, Jessamine always keeps the wants and needs of the student in mind when selecting repertoire and lesson material. She believes that finding material that interests a student while incorporating key musical ideas and techniques is key in teaching an outstanding musician. Teaching is truly her passion, and she strives to share her love of music with others.
