About Jessica S.

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.

Online lessons are available on Zoom. I look forward to hearing from you to find out how I can best help you meet your goals.

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.

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.

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.
