Overview

I have a unique musical past that has led me to where I am today. I started playing piano at age 6, flute at age 10, and harp at age 16.

Why and how did I get into taking harp lessons? Well, I remember being mystified by the harp in Fantasia and when I was in high school, my dad found a teacher and after the first lesson, I was hooked!

I attended Penn State University and graduated in 2009 with a BA Music degree and concentration on harp. I stayed at Penn State for an additional year to complete a Professional Performance Certificate on the harp. I have been lucky to have played some of the best orchestral repertoire in some of the most amazing concert halls such as Carnegie Hall, Heinz Hall, and the Kimmel Center.

I am currently pursuing a Masters of Harp Performance at Temple University. I study with the principal harpist of the Philadelphia Orchestra, Elizabeth Hainen. I will be done with my Masters in 2014 and after I plan to take orchestra auditions and teach!

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a big believer in studying the classical repertoire but also playing fun tunes you enjoy.

I consider myself to be a harpist but most importantly, a great musician. I will encourage you to become the best harpist and musician you would like to become. I will tailor my teaching to your learning style. Whether you are taking lessons for fun or are really serious, you will be continuously improving while feeling challenged.

I promise if you start taking harp lessons with me, you'll wonder why you hadn't started sooner!

*** Specialties ***
Grandjany and Salzedo techniques

Harp
great teacher for young students

Adrienne is a wonderful music teacher. She makes music easily accessible to young children (and their tone deaf parents). She is very patient, organized, and responsible. We highly recommend her.
