Jesse Larson fell in love with Zimbabwean marimba music when she first attended Kamp Kutandara at the age of eleven in 2003, and has been an avid marimba player ever since. She has performed for many years with Tamba!, Musha Marimba, and Kutandara. She has been an assistant instructor in adult beginner classes and the youth class Shumba, as well as acting assistant director in the youth band Vana Vedu from 2010-2012. Her warm personality and ability to relate with all students has made her well known around Kutandara Center. She has also been a counselor at Kamp Kutandara from 2007-2012 where she has motivated and encouraged young participants in their musical endeavors.
Jesse loves teaching almost as much as performing, and works well with students of all ages and musical levels. Her love for this music permeates all she does.
Jesse offers 55-minute private lesson on marimba.
