Information About Harp and Piano Lessons

Harp lessons and piano lessons for all ages and levels in Central Illinois.

I offer instruction in harp, piano, and music theory for children and adults, beginners to advanced levels, in my Jacksonville, Illinois, home studio, or at The Music Factory in Springfield, Illinois.

In addition to private instruction, The Music Factory offers Musikgarten music and movement classes for children from birth through age 10, including group piano classes. We also have group classes for more advanced musicians, including music composition, musicianship, and an introduction to the harp class.

For more detailed information about starting private lessons, please visit the harp lesson or piano lesson page. If you have further questions regarding lessons for either instrument, wish to study music theory or music history, or are interested in enrolling in lessons, please contact me.

For inquiries about Early Childhood Music, please visit The Music Factory.
