Live, ambient harp music creates a beautiful environment for your guests to relax and enjoy a meal or reception. I perform in a variety of settings, including museums, churches, private homes, hotels, restaurants, and elderly centers. I also have a built-in microphone to amplify my harp to fill larger spaces. Although my pricing varies by location, requested repertoire, and overall complexity of the event, my flat rate for private events is $100 per hour.
Live harp music is one of the best ways to take your event to the next level. Although well suited to intimate settin ... gs indoor or out, the harp is easily amplifiable to provide background music for larger events as well. With a background in chamber and orchestral performance, I am comfortable reading my surroundings and adjusting accordingly. Because weddings are often highly choreographed events, I understand how important it is to have a reliable musician onboard. To provide the best service I can, I prepare special repertoire requests and work closely with the wedding planner throughout the entire planning process.
Although my pricing varies by location, requested repertoire, and overall complexity of the event, my flat rate for wedding services is $300 per service.
Regardless of age, learning is a continual process that keeps the mind healthy and alive. Music is one of the best ways to activate every part of the brain, including coordination (did you know the harp has seven pedals?), concentration, listening skills, and mental alertness. Perhaps more importantly, music is a way to express the soul in a way that words cannot.
Although I have more experience coaching group lessons, I love working with both children and adults one-on-one. Because learning the harp can be a daunting prospect, I encourage you to consider taking a few lessons to get a feel for the instrument. My private instruction rate is $45 for a thirty-minute lesson and $60 for one hour. Please contact me with questions about how to get started learning this beautiful instrument!
I began playing the harp at age four, and have since found a deep passion in music. My high school education included a European tour with my youth orchestra, followed by a summer at the the Interlochen Summer Arts Academy. The following year, I was featured on "From the Top" and awarded the Jack Kent Cooke Scholarship, a merit-based scholarship awarded to twenty high school musicians nationwide.
I am currently studying harp performance at Colorado State University with Colorado Symphony harpist, Courtney Hershey Bress. In the summers of 2018 and 2019, I attended the Aspen Music Festival ... and School, studying with harpists from the New York Philharmonic, Vienna Philharmonic, and Finish Radio Symphony Orchestra. I continue to compete as a solo harpist and have performed with orchestras and choirs throughout the country.
As a solo artist, nothing gives me more joy than sharing my music with others, whether in homes for the elderly, hospital atriums, at weddings, special events, or as a private instructor. Please feel free to explore my website and contact me with questions or inquiries about my services. I look forward to sharing my music with you!
