BIOGRAPHY

I'm Jesse, a versatile 21-year-old musician and content creator from Helsinki. As an enthusiastic and cooperative musician I play all kind of music in different configurations. I graduated from Tapiola Upper Secondary School in spring 2020 and continued my studies at Sibelius Academy of University of the Arts Helsinki. In addition to studying music and working as a musician I also work as a social media content creator for many projects and companies.

I took up the violin at the age of eight at Espoo Music Institute and I have participated masterclasses in Finland and abroad. Regardless of the genre of music I perform in all kinds of events. I have received scholarships from Finnish Cultural Foundation and Espoo City Cultural Foundation in 2015, 2016 and 2017. 2017 I composed a march for graduated students in Tapiola Upper Secondary School. Other pieces of mine Hiihtäjä and Häivekuva have also been performed by our school chamber choir, vocal ensemble and Espoo City Orchestra Tapiola Sinfonietta. In Upper Secondary School I have also taken part in many musicals as an actor, singer and composer. Last year I participated a project called Kuule minä sävellän! by composing a piece Sydän lyö. This year I premiered composer Arto Paju's Violin Concerto at Taidekeskus Salmela as a soloist with Salmela Festival Orchestra in the summer of 2021.

I also work as a musician in many orchestral productions. In addition my work reaches also in producing and content creating such as being a member of many debuty boards and planning groups.
