Jessica Moseley's expertise lies in music theory, ear training and theories of form. Her research interests include the 12-tone music of Alberto Ginastera, theories of composing out in post-tonal music, and theories of form concerning the concerto genre. In addition to teaching private lessons, she has taught courses in music theory, ear training, and keyboard at Hofstra University and the University of Cincinnati. Moseley has served on the Music Theory Midwest board and delivered a paper for the regional society. She was also invited to speak about her views on integrating group piano, theory, and ear training curricula at the National Group Piano and Piano Pedagogy Conference.

I believe it is my job to encourage and guide students in drawing connections between the music they love and the music they are required to study. The analytical and aural skills I teach in my classroom are designed to improve the way my students listen to, interpret, discuss, and perform music. Managing the wide-ranging learning styles and abilities of the students in my classroom is important to me: I approach new concepts from a variety of perspectives-historical, analytical, aural, spatial, tactile-and encourage students to build upon their individual strengths in order to make improvements in other areas.
