Hi, I love to teach! The harp is my passion and I am eager to show you how to play this amazing instrument. I studied the harp at the Cleveland Institute of Music and received my Masters in Music Education from Case Western Reserve University. Since then, I've performed , taught the harp, opened my own company, a full service harp store on the West Coast. My students can participate in music workshops, concerts, recitals, chamber music and harp festival.

I look forward to hearing from you to find out how I can best help you meet your goals.

Harp · In studio

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.
