I hope to inspire, educate and connect your with your inner creative self. I use humor as starting a new instrument can be daunting. As a full time professional harpist and educator, I hope to give you the best musical experience possible.

Jessica introduced me to the harp and gave me confidence that allowed me to move with great progress, while really focusing me into the technique of the harp. She empathetically understands the needs of all of her students. Possibly my best music teacher I've ever had.
Helen
I'm happily surprised at how helpful on-line harp lessons have been. Jessica can see my hands, and she has provided great corrections in technique.
Michael
My daughter has been taking lessons with Jessica for six years (since she was 7 years old) . Jessica immediately developed a rapport with her and put her at ease to focus on enjoying the harp. As an instructor, she is extremely patient and kind. Also, she teaches at her harp store so it is very convenient for instrument maintenance such as getting replacement strings. Most recently, she has gotten my daughter performance-ready for several competitions and auditions. What we most appreciate is Jessica providing opportunities to expand her world through harp.

We can talk about songwriting basics, common chords in popular songs, and ubiquitous song forms. You'll be writing for Nashville in no time!

"I took several guitar classes with Ahmad a while back - he is an excellent instructor and very personable. He was more concerned with teaching me how to play the guitar rather than trying to get me to pay for more sessions. I still have his very helpful teaching notes!

In addition to the actual instruction, he also had great advice on what to or not to buy - I am an expert at the violin (this is not like an Asian thing but I had insisted to learn it) but was a complete novice with the guitar. It also helps that he is a bonafide musician in an actual band - I attended one of his concerts, which was very enjoyable, but had to leave before I could talk to him."
