Ethel Harris holds bachelor's and master’s degrees from Northwestern University's School of Music specializing in music education and piano performance. She began teaching piano at the age of seventeen on the recommendation of her piano pedagogy professor, Louis Crowder, and she has had many years of experience in all facets of music education as well as piano performance.

Ethel's early teachers were Hulda Brethauer, Mildred Butler and Bessie Ash Noack in Belleville, Illinois, a suburb of St. Louis, Missouri. Harold Zabrack, a noted piano pedagogue in St. Louis, and Professor of Piano at Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey, prepared her for entrance to Northwestern University. Her undergraduate piano professor was Ms. Wanda Paul, a legendary pianist in Chicago, and it was at Northwestern University that Ethel was inducted into Mu Phi Epsilon, a musical honorary. Louis Crowder was her professor of piano at Northwestern for her master's degree. Following university studies, Harris studied with Vitya Vronsky Babin, of the famed Vronsky and Babin Piano Duo, and Babin's assistant, Olga Radosavljevich, at the Cleveland Institute of Music. In Arizona, she studied with Professors Eugene Pridonoff and James Ruccolo at Arizona State University School of Music.

Ethel Harris has performed as a soloist, with chamber music groups, choral and orchestral organizations and has taught piano and vocal music in schools and private studios in Illinois, Louisiana, Ohio and Arizona. She served on the Board of Directors of the Phoenix Chamber Music Society for more than ten years. In that capacity, she conceptualized and created a program to develop an audience for chamber music in Phoenix area. This Audience Development Project, as it was called, first obtained funding from state and city sources of funds for the arts. Harris coordinated and marketed chamber music programs to Phoenix area schools. The performances were played by the internationally-known chamber musicians performing in regularly-scheduled concerts for the Phoenix Chamber Music Society. She planned and provided all arrangements for these visiting musicians, including transportation and hospitality.

Harris sings with the Alliance Française Chorale du Grand Phoenix as a charter member and performs with the Harris-Levno flute and piano duo currently, and she is a performing member of the Monday Morning Musicale, a group of musicians who have been active in the Phoenix area for over thirty-five years.

"She also is the piano accompanist for the TREMBLE CLEFS, a performing choral group made up of persons living with Parkinson's disease, their spouses and care-givers. In addition, she is the pianist with MUSICA NOVA, a professional orchestra formed in 2003 of more than sixty musicians based in Northeast Maricopa County."
