Mikaela Marget and I are beginning our third year teaching as a duo called Heliopsis.

This year, we will be changing up the instruments that we use and the style of our teaching, bringing in more storytelling and the African string instruments with greater emphasis. We will continue to play original music for various traditional instruments from Sub-Saharan Africa, cello, and voice. Our music ranges from raucous and dance-like to serene and peaceful. Each tune has an element of improvisation, so no two performances are the same.

Heliopsis is a 2023-2024 MPR Class Notes participating ensemble, and is available to school groups for educational performances.

We invite you to listen and watch a sample lesson of ours here.
