Bio - Jesse Stern
Jesse Stern has been playing music most of his life. Born in Corvallis, Oregon, he grew up learning the love of music by listening to his dad play guitar and his mom sing. He began his musical education during elementary school, studying classical piano. He then moved onto Jazz and Classical Guitar studies through middle school and high school. He went on to receive a degree in Jazz Guitar Performance from Portland State University, where he had the opportunity to teach music in elementary schools.
After graduating, Jesse began to practice different types of yoga and found an especially deep connection with the practices of Ashtanga, Bhakti, and Nada Yoga, the yoga of sound. To further explore Nada Yoga, Jesse relocated to Marin County, California in the spring of 2014 to study Indian Classical Music at the Ali Akbar College of Music in San Rafael, where he is still studying.
When not teaching or performing music, you might find Jesse cooking up some fresh veggie grub or enjoying the beautiful scenery of Marin County.
