With playing that is “fierce and lyrical” and works that are “other-worldly” (The Strad) and “evocative” (NY Times), Jessica Meyer is a versatile composer and violist whose passionate musicianship radiates accessibility, generosity, and emotional clarity.


Ms. Meyer’s compositions explore the wide palette of expressive colors available to each instrument while using traditional and extended techniques inspired by her varied experiences as a contemporary and period instrumentalist…

Jessica has premiered pieces for solo viola around the country, and is committed to expanding the repertoire for viola by commissioning new works while also composing her own.


Ms. Meyer is also the founder of “Chops Beyond the Practice Room,” a series of workshops and coachings that empower musicians with networking, communication, entrepreneurial, and teaching artist skills so they can successfully connect to their audiences while being the best advocates for their own careers.
