Additional Information:

Harpists often have fewer ensemble opportunities in public schools than students of other instrumetns. Harpeggios provides my students the opportunities to develop the critical ensemble skills necessary for them to perform together, and with other musicians in addition to their solo repertoire.

Harpeggios performs frequently throughout southern New England at churches, assisted living facilities, museums, private dinner clubs, awards ceremonies, music educator conferences a mong other venues.

Assistance is provided in finding appropriate instruments for students.

Several students have gone on to pursue undergraduate and graduate degress in harp performance and music education.
