Since 2002, NW Worship Academy has trained over 150 students of all ages to play both classical and contemporary music, including CCM, pop, rock, blues, and folk. My goal is to find music that interests you and equip you to share it in your community. We provide “jam session” opportunities so students learn to play in a group, and many have gone on to start their own bands or play music for school and church.
"I cannot more highly recommend Joel Harris. He has an uncanny ability to produce great gifts of musical ability." Chris T. – Vancouver, WA

In addition to the training in chord theory and improvisation needed to play pop, CCM, or contemporary worship music, all students work in a method book that teaches general music theory and note reading. Piano students may opt for a greater emphasis on classical piano, including competitions like the Oregon Junior Festival.
