HARPIST TEACHER COMPOSER ARRANGER
In over twelve years of teaching harp, I have worked with students ranging from beginner to collegiate, 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. From 2016 to 2020, I built a private harp studio and served on the music staff at one of the nation’s top-rated public schools, Adlai E. Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire, Illinois. Today, I teach online and in-person lessons from my home studio in Watervliet, Michigan.
In addition to exploring solo harp repertoire, all my students learn music theory, harp history, and sight-reading. My more advanced students also focus on chamber music, orchestral excerpts, and how to prepare for auditions. Students especially interested in composing or arranging for harp may also choose to study music notation, composition techniques, and how to arrange music for harp. I encourage all my students to pursue ensemble experience whether at school, summer music camp, or regional orchestras.
