The Domestic Musician-AboutI believe that every child should have access to a quality music education.

  • I believe any child can learn music: any age, any background, any learning style.
  • I believe online music education is a unique way of learning for those who just need a different option.
  • I believe that every school should have access to quality music curriculum.
  • I believe teacher’s shouldn’t feel frustrated with how to come up with weekly lesson plans.
  • I believe teacher’s can have music education videos for when they have a substitute.
  • I believe that parents who don’t know much about music CAN help your child practice and learn music from home.
  • I believe student’s can learn music online with the help of a quality and certified teacher.

On this site, you will find ideas for teaching in your home school or classroom, video lessons for children, and lesson plans that include the National Music Standards.  

I am a HUGE advocate for learning music through private lessons, school music classes, and ensembles. Music teachers are one of a kind and reach children the way no one else can.  While supporting teachers and traditional learning opportunities, I am wanting to offer another way of learning through videos and courses.  If your child, or you as a parent or teacher, need music lessons or a curriculum, you have come to the right place.

So who is The Domestic Musician you may ask?

My name is Jessica Peresta and I am a music teacher, mom of 3 little dudes, and wife to one tall dude.  I’m a Netflix binging, sushi eating, worship band playing, nature loving, football watching kind of gal.  I LOVE teaching and inspiring others and am in love with all things music.
