Original Music For Films

“Audience members of all ages were spellbound by the film and Leslie’s live music from beginning to end. At the end of the screening there was very enthusiastic applause—and I don't know when I’ve seen so many wide smiles in our lobby after an event. This was really a treat.”

Mark Murphy, Executive Director
Roy & Edna Disney/CalArts Theater



Learn To Play The Harp

I welcome harp students of all ages and love to see harp playing dreams coming true every day in my studio. My special training in Suzuki Method harp instruction allows young children to learn to play beautiful music and gain focus, confidence and coordination as they do. My adult students often find the harp gives them a creative and tangible way to express themselves through music.

From a harp student’s parent
“Thank you for all the work you did with our son over the years. We were awfully lucky to have found you as a harp instructor. You have had the biggest impact of any adult on our son with the exception of, I think, his parents!”

From wedding clients
“Leslie was so talented and made our wedding ceremony so special. She was very accommodating with our music selections. The music was wonderful and was exactly what we had hoped for. I would highly recommend Leslie to all of our friends!”

From a Rivet Magazine review of PETER PAN screening, accompanied live by Leslie’s music
“McMichael creates a soundscape that is both varied in texture and tone, alternating between the various sounds with cinematic panache ... It’s hard to imagine what the more standard musical accompaniment would have been, now with the harp washing over all the sepia-toned images.”
