Jesse Mark Ort
My musical wheelhouse is Classic Seventies Rock & Roll and Heavy Metal. But you could consider me as being a Swiss Army Knife player. I can play and teach anything from Megadeth to Celine Dion to Wes Montgomery.
I am comfortable with instructing guitar and bass to students of all ages. My strengths are in the areas of both rhythm and lead playing. I possess an excellent understanding of technique, a firm grasp on the mechanics of the instrument and skilled in the language of musical improv. In addition, I have a strong passion for music theory.
I am the founder and lead guitarist for the Pittsburgh-based rock band, Trevolta. We have played large venues such as Hard Rock Cafe, Crafthouse Stage & Grill, Jergel’s Rhythm Grille and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
In addition to Trevolta, I play bass for the popular tribute bands Bon Journey and Bowie Live. These bands have performed at Hollywood Casino in Youngstown, Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City and other large venues.
On Sundays, I play guitar as a member of the worship band at Harvest Bible Chapel Pittsburgh North, periodically, filling in on bass.

“The combination of Jesse’s love for music, how to listen to a song and bring it to life on the guitar, and patience with his young students is what makes his lessons meaningful to our son. There are many people who can teach a scale on the guitar, but Jesse’s explanation, demonstration, and methods bring it to life for our son who is always excited to log in and have a lesson with Jesse. We highly recommend him to work with all ages and stages in music with his encouraging techniques.” – Tracy S.
“Jesse is the rare combination of multi-talents, professionalism and accountability. He’s the first to show, the last to leave and is always exceptionally prepared. Humble and proactive, he is both a leader and ideal team member.” – Darren M.
