Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
A thorough, solid technique base including scales, and arpeggios. I include detailed theory work as we progress through scales and pieces. A wide variety of pieces including lots of individual choice. I believe it is very important for students to love what they're playing whether it be jazz, pop, classical or hymns. I am happy to push students as much as they wish depending if they are looking towards a professional career or just playing for fun.

I am a passionate musician who is very active in the Chicago music scene in classical, contemporary and alternative music. I recently graduated with a degree of Master of Arts in Harp from the Royal Academy of Music as well as with my LRAM teaching certification. I received my bachelors from the University of Arizona. I currently am a harp instructor for the Chicago Harp Ensemble and formerly worked with the Urban Youth Harp Ensemble in Atlanta. I have a wide range of experience in teaching beginners as well as advanced students. I put a strong emphasis on technique and musicianship.
