Elizabeth L. Groveland, FL

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 ...

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.

We've had the best first time lessons experience with Kristie. She is knowledgeable, patient and extremely flexible. I especially appreciate the way she is able to reign in my seven year old's often wandering attention span. I look forward to continuing to work with Kristie in the future.

Kristie is a remarkable musician and teacher. She is persistent in helping her students achieve the impeccable technique, especially good tone and precise rhythm. Kristie is renowned for these qualities in her own playing. But, more than that, Kristie helps her students understand how music is put together, from the simplest concepts of key and meter to complex theories of phrasing. If you love to learn, Kristie will turn you not only into a proficient technician, but a true musician.

Kristie is an exceptional teacher whom I would recommend to any serious student. I studied with her for a year, which turned out to be one of the most productive periods of instruction that I've had. Kristie is particularly gifted in identifying where attention is needed, explaining and demonstrating clearly what the goal is, and suggesting good practice ideas for achieving the goal. She does all of this in a very relaxed manner that serves to promote growth, rather than to increase tension.

Kristie is also a terrific musician with a deep grasp of interpretation and performance. Her resume speaks for itself. It was always a pleasure just to hear her when she would sit at the instrument to illustrate a point.

On top of it all, she's a great person to know. What more could one want in a teacher?
