Most lessons take place in my home studio located in Milwaukie, near the 99E. During the 2017/2018 school year, I will be teaching from my home studio on Monday and Tuesday.
I also teach at Valley Catholic Music School in Beaverton, OR. During Fall 2017/2018, lessons at Valley Catholic Music School will take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays between 1pm and 6pm. We will work together to find a regular every week lesson time that follows the school schedule. Visit their website for the registration form and more information.
Please contact me if you’d like more information or would like to discuss scheduling a lesson.
Harp lessons are tailored to suit each student and their needs. Our lessons will emphasize technique, no matter the style of music, in order to get the best sound from your instrument. I have a background in classical and popular music, and I'm enthusiastic about teaching folk, Celtic, jazz, and worship, too! I'm happy to work with students to find repertoire suited to their interests and skill level. Building upon foundational pieces, each student has customized repertoire to fit their playing. Students primarily interested in classical music will have much different lessons than students who want to learn improv and playing off chords. We will also learn music theory and how it applies to your music and the harp.
Lessons can be as often as you'd like. Many start with weekly 30 minute lessons and eventually increase the time to 45 or 60 minutes. More advanced students may choose bi-monthly or monthly lesson instead.
