I am a seasoned educator, having taught students professionally since 1994. My studio welcomes harp, piano, and voice students. I also provide music theory and coachings for students preparing for auditions and competitions. Beginner to advanced students are welcome, ages 8 through adult although I sometimes make exceptions for younger students. Interested parents and students are encouraged to set up an interview. I am happy to assist and guide you in your purchase of a piano or harp rental or purchase.
I teach harp students the Grandjany/Renie method.
All music students will utilize technique exercise and a wide range of repertoire coupled with a sight reading and theory program to ensure their musical growth. Although I stress standard literature, I do introduce other music including church music, Broadway, popular, and Celtic repertoire to students. Advance students are exposed to chamber music with other instruments and concertos.
Students have numerous performance opportunities including recitals, church performances, master classes, and harp ensemble for harpists. I also encourage my students to attend conferences, adjudications, and competitions. Harp students are encouraged to join the American Harp Society.
If you are an adult refreshing your music skills or wanting to learn, you are most welcome to join the studio! We will build a program based on your interest and desires. Public performance is not required and we will go at your desired pace. I have enjoyed teaching students from new college graduates to retirees.
