What students are saying...

"I came to Jessica a year ago, with the desire to learn harp. As a local business owner dealing with some life upheaval at the time, I didn't know what kind of commitment this would be, and I had no idea whether I would be able to stick with it. All I knew was that I wanted to be able to someday play improvisational harp, to bring joy to myself and others around me. Jessica understood the goal I had set for myself, and began teaching me with an eye toward technique, as well as discovery of music that I would enjoy playing. Along the way, I've learned a lot about discipline, slowing down, and being present. You could say that learning harp has taught me a lot about life. At this point, I can't imagine not having this in my life, and I can't imagine a better instructor than Jessica."

”Jessica has been my harp teacher for over a year. As an adult student, 62, Jessica has guided and helped me through my journey in music. She has made me feel comfortable in my mistakes and encourages me to improve. She also has incredible patience with her young students. If it was not for Jessica, I would not have been able to play harp today. I really appreciate for all of the hard work she has poured into teaching me. She is an amazing talent teacher. It's my great honor been her student. I highly recommend her.”

”Jessica is a wonderful harp teacher, and a very kind person. She is very thoughtful and attentive to the student's needs, and customizes her lessons to each student. As a beginner harpist I'm really appreciative of her attention to proper technique and her flexibility in teaching me my focus areas such as improvisation, and arranging. She often prepares music or techniques specifically for my individual needs which is beyond what I would expect! She goes above and beyond just the lessons and often we connect through email throughout the week about harp progress, introspections and she has always been open to any questions I have outside of lessons. I really look forward to every lesson I have with Jessica and I'm super happy to have found such a great teacher like her!”

Jessica is a great harp teacher and harpist!  We've tried 2 other teachers before and Jessica has the best combination of teaching skills, leadership and patience.  She has a hands on style of teaching and responds to the individual and unique needs of her students.  We've been with Jessica for 18 months now and our daughter continues to progress musically and loves her harp more and more each day.  Jessica is also an amazing harpist.  We first met while she was playing at an event.  We would recommend her for your special event too!
