Harp lessons fit to YOU! I believe that anyone can learn to play the harp, and enjoy the process. Everyone learns a little bit differently, and I love to work with my students to find a learning style that suits the individual's learning style and ability level. I have over 20 years of experience teaching the harp, and would love to have you be a part of my studio. Beginning adults, and children ages 7+ welcome, no previous musical experience necessary!

About Karen
I love the harp! I began playing harp at age 8, and it seems as though it's always been a part of my life. I have played professionally for many years now, and for me teaching is the very best part of being a harpist. I've performed all over the place through the years, including Texas Renaissance Festival, Dickens on the Strand in Galveston, Texas Blueberry Festival, and North Texas Irish Festival just to name a few.

I teach both pedal and lever harp, and have an appreciation for all types of music. I spent a large part of my career playing traditional Irish and Celtic music, and am currently enjoying music of the Baroque era. I think one should always try new things, as well as revisiting old loves!

Liza is extremely flexible and patient. She has tailored each lesson to my specific needs and has given me tools I needed to make me a better harp player. She chooses pieces that challenge me and has allowed me to chose from several different pieces/styles that I would enjoy learning, too. If I had to miss a lesson for some reason she went above-and-beyond to accommodate a make-up lesson. She has always been very encouraging and I have loved having her has my harp teacher! --Olivia (14 years old)

As a music teacher of over 10 years I take a fun but structured approach to learning the harp. I've taught all ages and I individually work with each student to help them learn the music that they want to and reach the goals that they set for themselves. I also have a large emphasis on hand position and help my students have the very best technique so they can play their very best. We will typically start with exercises and technique and then move to music. I will then send written individual feedback after the lesson to help remind the student of what we are working on. I hope to have the chance to share my love of music with you!

About Jill
I am a harpist, pianist, arranger, composer, performer and lover of music. With over 12 years of experience teaching both piano and harp lessons. Although I graduated from Brigham Young University in Idaho with a Bachelors in visual communication, I have continued to stretch my skills as musician and teacher.

I perform frequently and love sharing my passion for the harp and piano through teaching so others can also experience having these beautiful instruments in their lives.

I teach piano and harp students of all different ages and experience levels, although I have an especially great love for teaching children and youth. I studied classical piano for over 12 years, and classic harp for over 11 years. A huge part of my music education was focused on theory and as a result I have a great love of having a strong foundation in musica
l theory.

I strive to help my students develop a love music that can last throughout their entire life while still learning proper technique and theory. I try to help students set individual goals and then structure lessons to help these students reach each of their dreams.

Practicing can be hard for any student, but playing music you enjoy can help you stick with it. To inspire my students, I find or arrange music they both enjoy and that will help them progress. I've found that this not only motivates students but also adds an extra fun aspect to our lessons and practices.

My passion is sharing my love of music with those around me. Schedule your first harp lesson with me today!

Jill is an engaging teacher for my 11-year-old daughter. My daughter has had harp lessons before, but Jill's energetic personality and enthusiasm has rekindled her interest in playing. Jill is organized and an effective communicator. We have appreciated that practice goals between lessons are clearly outlined at the end of each lesson.

I left Jill a review after my first lesson, but now that we've been together for a few months I wanted to write another. She is the most positive and encouraging teacher I could have ever asked for. My experience learning the harp was better because of her. I can't recommend her enough and hope others are able to experience the joy of learning a new instrument with her. Thank you Jill for everything, you're truly the best!

I am so glad to have Liudmila as my first Piano teacher.I never thought I would be taking Piano lessons at my age, but Liudmila is such a wonderful , patient teacher that she makes me feel very relaxed. She is very knowledgeable about music and takes great care to teach me at my pace and capability. I have already taken about 10 classes with her and am excited and looking forward to continue taking more lessons with her.

I enjoyed my first harp lesson with Liudmila so much! She is a very sweet lady, and a very patient, knowledgable, and professional teacher. She taught me the correct posture and hand positions at the first lesson. I was struggeling with the hand positions first, but she didn't mind to explain them to me over and over again. She also plaid some tunes to me, and I could tell that she is an awsome harpist. I am very glad that I can learn from her. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn from a professional harpist.

Eleonora is an extremely talented musician and harpist. She is very patient and caring to her students. She tailors lessons to fit the students needs, which I personally found it amazing!!! Harp was not very easy for me to learn and I took a very long time to learn my pieces, but with Eleonora’s guidance I was able to learn them in the end. Thanks to her positive and encouraging teaching style, harp lessons were always enjoyable. I would highly recommend Eleonora…you will not regret to take her lessons!!

The harp has honestly taught me so many valuable lessons and I would not be the same person without it. I highly recommend it because it is a glorious instrument that will change your life. You will learn technique, theory, dynamics, and different styles of playing the harp. Anyone can play the harp regardless of age. I would say a lesson with me is encouraging, yet challenging. I would you to fall in love with the harp, just as much as I am in love with it and I also want you to feel as though you are being stretched. Happy harping!

About Lauren
Hello, my name is Lauren and I am a harpist living in New York City, Manhattan and Oxnard, California. I first fell in love with the harp when I was five years old. I attended a wedding in Minnesota where I saw a beautiful pedal harp and immediately took an affinity to the instrument. It took my mom and I three years to find a harp teacher, but when I was eight, I had my first lesson. Since then and now, much has happened. I’ve played at several weddings and events. In 2011, I placed second in the Redlands Harp Competition and I have even been blessed to preform at spectacular venues such as The Thousand Oaks Civics Arts Plaza and The Grand Ole Opry in Tennessee. I have also attended the prestigious summer intensive "Young Artist's Harp Seminar." For my first year of college, I was the principal harpist for Pepperdine University's Symph
ony and Woodwind Ensemble. Currently, I am pursuing a Film and Television degree from New York University Tisch as well as involving myself in the music community at NYU Steinhardt.

When I am not harping, I like to watch movies (Wes Anderson films are my favorite!), go to coffee shops, and visit museums. Being able to play the harp is a wonderful experience and I hope to share my gift with as many people as possible.

Lauren has taught my then 5 year old harp. She was very patient, kind, and encouraging. I highly recommend her as a teacher. She taught my daughter not only harp, but some piano as well. She made the lessons fun and interactive. My daughter looked forward to her lessons and was even motivated to practice!
