My Story

Jesse at 8 years old

Jesse Friedberg is on a mission to inspire children and their parents to be creative, compassionate, freethinking, and a little bit smarter than he is (which is pretty darn smart). Based out of Cleveland, Ohio, Jesse accomplishes his mission by writing and recording original children’s music. He puts on amusing, thrilling, and interactive live shows that entertain children and adults alike. Did we mention he is great at talking about himself in third person?

After graduating from Berklee College of Music, instead of mastering the art of Jazz and shredding guitars, Jesse dedicated his time to writing, recording, and performing fun and catchy children’s music for families.

Jesse with Michael Seifert

In 2012, Jesse recorded a children’s album with (name drop alert) multi-platinum award winning producer, Michael Seifert, titled, “Jesse’s Jukebox”. In 2017 he released his follow up children’s album, “Jesse’s Jukebox: There’s Music Everywhere”.

Jesse’s passion for working with children led him to receiving his Masters in Early Childhood Education from Ursuline College in 2015. He applies the skills he learned from there to give high energy, interactive, early childhood music classes that the whole family gets into.

Jesse is driven by Rock and Roll, The Blues, Batman, Electric guitars, Silliness, Funky Bass Lines, Pizza, Corny jokes, Loud Drums, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Banjos, Outer Space, and all things awesome.

He’s working on improving his bio writing skills. It’s a slow process.
