In ten years of teaching harp, I have worked with students that range from beginner to college-level, and from ages eight to eighty. My high school students have performed with local youth orchestra programs including Chicago Youth Symphony, Elgin Youth Symphony, Midwest Young Artists, and Illinois Music Educators Association. Since 2016, I have been on the music staff as harp instructor at Adlai E. Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire, Illinois.
In addition to exploring solo harp repertoire, all of my students learn about music theory, harp history, and sight-reading. My more advanced students also focus on chamber music, practical orchestral skills, and how to prepare for auditions. Students especially interested in composing or arranging for harp may study proper music notation, composition techniques, and how to arrange music for harp. I encourage all of my students to pursue ensemble experience whether at school, summer music camp, or regional orchestras.
I teach lessons online, at my students' homes, or at Stevenson High School (for enrolled SHS students only).
