Whether you’re totally new to the harp, or already play at a beginning or intermediate level, I have a workshop for you. Hands-on workshops and lecture/demonstrations are available for harp organizations, festivals, and other interested groups throughout the United States. Workshop topics include early music, Scottish and Irish repertoire, music for lap harp and double-strung harp, harp ensemble, performance skills, and “Discover the Harp” for future harpers. Master classes and other workshop topics are available by request.

Individual 90-minute workshops can be combined with additional workshops and my harp performances for an exciting day or weekend of harp. For extended harp study during the summer months (mid-June to mid-August), I am also available to teach at summer schools and festivals. 

Contact me to schedule a harp workshop or presentation, or to obtain additional information.

Coming soon: workshop descriptions.
