Oregon-based non-profit Music Workshop provides an innovative online K-8 music education program that any school can access and teach regardless of their means, location or teacher expertise. The program is predicated on the ‘open education’ concept: a global movement that brings high quality online education to schools and students everywhere, free-of-charge.

By providing educational materials directly to schools/students, Music Workshop gives teachers the necessary music education resources to enhance their own curriculum.

As the Founder/Executive Director of Music Workshop, Amy has taught over 800 Music Workshop classes for students K-8th grade throughout.

Amy’s vision to supplement music education in schools worldwide is a tested and proven model to expand the knowledge and interest in music by today’s youth. Share that vision with us “backstage”!

“Having been a Portland native all my life, its been a dream of mine to be established in the community as a source for sharing the passion I have for music through teaching, performing and helping others achieve their goals through my insight, experience and knowledge.”

As the guitarist in Portland’s Dirty Rhythm, Brian Harrison was teetering on the edge of becoming a star in the early 90s. The band went up to Canada to record their debut, Hard As A Rock, with Loverboy’s Paul Dean only to watch the album sink due to poor label support. Fifteen years later the band dipped into their vaults to release Never Cleaned Up.

Today finds Brian actively recording his own music, as well as producing artists and projects in his home studio, overlooking the valley in Portland.
