I have been teaching harp for over 10 years. I teach with a strong emphasis in technique, employing mostly Salzedo styles with a few French styles in hand and arm position. Young harp beginners start with my book "Animal Alley: Friends of the Forest" teaching the student new notes with the help of our furry friends!

I have a series of books from which I teach for all ages, all abilities. At any point I encourage the student to learn songs they like, creating an enriched atmosphere of learning.

I teach music theory, exercises, and sight-reading alongside our weekly studies of pieces and songs. I will help you find the right materials so you can enjoy your lessons!

It is my goal to have students perform pieces with comfort, strength and for memory.

My teaching philosophy is to cultivate a love for music while learning the best way to approach the instrument and learning how to play well. Like any good goal, hard work and patience are needed, but ultimately love of the ...

As a family, we are delighted to recommend Miss Elizabeth Gerberding as a musical instructor. Not only she is a very successful and accomplished professional musician playing on recognized stages with well renowned international stars, she has “the personal touch” to connect with kids and teach effectively her knowledge.

Miss Elizabeth explains clearly the musical concepts and is very supportive. She can identify the learning style of our daughter and adjusts to optimize her improvement constantly. Personally, our daughter connects very well with her and has develop a great admiration towards her as a role model.

Also, the music classes are giving our daughter more confidence to play in front of audiences and we recognize the improvement in that aspect of our daughter’s personality.

In summary, we are have been blessed to find an outstanding music professional to teach our daughter and we gladly recommend her.

I've been taking harp lessons from Elizabeth for 3 years. She helped me to rent a harp until I knew for sure it was going to be fun. It only took one lesson to know I'd love it. Elizabeth is very patient with me. She has helped me to master any problem that arises with great expertise.

She methodically introduces me to knew techniques so that I'm never overwhelmed.

She is always positive about every aspect of teaching. I would recommend her highly!

Joe's strong music background and experience make him a good teacher. I'm positive that he would be excellent with a beginner. I only needed a refresher in knowledge and he has helped me a great deal. I would strongly recommend him for future students
Vanessa S. Palm Springs, CA

I teach Celtic (lever) and pedal harp. Strong technical foundation based on blend of Renie, Salzedo and Russian technical schools. Repertoire dependent on each student's individual goals, but including popular and jazz music. Emphasis on musicality and expression.

Diane S. Byron, MN

Beginner to intermediate students who are at least 5 years old.

I do not teach nor do I have a large concert harp. I only teach students who are interested in learning a 22-34 string celtic or gothic style lever harp.

About Diane

My journey in music began when I was around 5 years old and first heard the children's choir sing in church. My mother used to tell me that I would beg her to let me sing in the choir but she would always have to tell me I wasn't old enough. As soon as I was old enough, she enrolled me in church choir and I've been in it ever since.

I have performed with the Rochester symphony orchestra and chorale, Rochester community band, Rochester civic music, church choirs and orchestras, Lake of the Isles community band, and performed Handel's Messiah at Carnegie hall in New York City. I've done some acting and singing in musicals as well.

As I got older, I discovered playing the clarinet was fun but never gave up singing. I just did them both. After ...

Diane was an excellent instructor and I enjoyed her professionalism and patience with my daughter. unfortunately my daughter became dis- interested due to a need for " a personal touch" that only in home or studio practices could provide.
