Private Harp Teacher

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.

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 and the pursuit of making music.

Caitie
My daughter Caitie very much enjoyed her harp lesson with Elizabeth last week. She usually detests “online lessons” primarily because the instructor has not spent enough time tailoring his or her didactic teaching methods to the specific limitations and practicalities of the computer camera and the internet transmission ability. I was actually shocked (happily) when she boasted how talented Elizabeth is in her online teaching abilities. She stated that “WOW! She is a true professional - she truly understands how to teach online by articulating and directing very clearly.”
Priscilla Marotta
Articulate and enthusiastic teacher. Elizabeth is invested in meeting each student’s goals. She is pleasant and warm.

If you have an opportunity to study harp with Catherine, jump at the chance and count yourself fortunate! I have taken lessons with Catherine for over 10 years and she has guided me from a relative newcomer to the harp all the way into my professional career (playing for symphonies, opera, ballet, concerts, etc..). Catherine shares her vast knowledge and beautiful musical artistry in the most patient, kind and nurturing way I can imagine. It's a joy and an inspiration to study with Catherine and I always eagerly look forward to any time spent working with her!
Riley
I have known Mrs Cathy for over 8 years. She has always been very understanding and you can see how much she loves the harp. Our lessons are productive and challenging, but Mrs Cathy still makes it fun! I look forward to our lessons and feel like I’m learning a lot.
Angelle
Cathy is a gifted musician and an excellent teacher. For me, an adult student with a limited background in music, taking lessons with Cathy (both online and in person) has been the perfect fit. She is patient, makes lessons fun and interesting, understands my musical interests, and helps me find music that I enjoy playing. She has taught me not only technique but also some music theory, which has been very helpful. I am so pleased with my progress. Also, when I first started lessons, I had so many questions about caring for my harp. Cathy taught me how to tune my harp properly, transport it, and even change strings. She also taught me how to position myself properly when playing. Cathy is a wonderful resource for all things related to harps. I highly recommend her as a teacher.

Jessica introduced me to the harp and gave me confidence that allowed me to move with great progress, while really focusing me into the technique of the harp. She empathetically understands the needs of all of her students. Possibly my best music teacher I've ever had.
Helen
I'm happily surprised at how helpful on-line harp lessons have been. Jessica can see my hands, and she has provided great corrections in technique.
Michael
My daughter has been taking lessons with Jessica for six years (since she was 7 years old) . Jessica immediately developed a rapport with her and put her at ease to focus on enjoying the harp. As an instructor, she is extremely patient and kind. Also, she teaches at her harp store so it is very convenient for instrument maintenance such as getting replacement strings. Most recently, she has gotten my daughter performance-ready for several competitions and auditions. What we most appreciate is Jessica providing opportunities to expand her world through harp.

Tori's teaching style is holistic: she focuses not just on reading music, harp technique, and basic music theory but also music history, developing effective practice habits, and helping her students' discover how the harp can become a part of their lives and achieve their musical goals and dreams!

Nora
I can't recommend lessons with Tori highly enough!

I've been obsessed with oil painting, and every kind of 2D visual art, for as long as I can remember, but I never really believed in myself to do it until I worked with Tori.

My drawing, painting, and even my 3D work progressed more, and more quickly, working with Tori than they had in years

Thank you Tori!!!!
Lisa
My three boys (ages 11-15) loved working with Tori. We still have the block print-making pieces, paintings and charcoal drawings displayed in our kitchen. Their favorite project was creating plaster casts of their own faces. Tori is very thoughtful, patient and has a great zen energy. I highly recommend Tori!

"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?"

"My daughter just began learning harp after asking about lessons for quite a while. Jill has been wonderful in her communication, thorough and encouraging in her delivery method, and as a result after just three lessons I am already hearing the courage from my daughter to learn a piece for a recital in three weeks. That’s really amazing! I truly appreciate Jill’s teaching and flexibility around her lessons."

"A teenage boy and a 40-year-old woman do not go about learning an instrument (or music theory) in the same way, and Alexandra knows how to tailor her lessons to each students' needs -- definitely not a one-size-fits all teacher. Cheerful and encouraging, she knows how to walk the fine line between demanding excellent work and being a control freak. Whether you or your child want to learn music theory for any instrument, or the harp in particular, you can't go wrong with Alexandra. Also, for those who have to listen to anyone practicing a new instrument, it's hard to make an ugly sound on a harp."
