FAQs:

Do I need to have any musical experience to learn to play the Celtic harp?

It's not necessary to have any prior musical background before embarking on harp lessons. If you have never taken up an instrument before, Anne will teach you harp technique and how to read music, too. It's a plus if you have some past musical experience, because you'll already know the rudiments of reading sheet music. Anne teaches from ages 7 and up. If your child is younger than 7 and anxious to play the harp, get them started on the piano first. This way, when they come to Anne at an older age, they will already know how to read music (harp sheet music and piano sheet music look alike).

Is the harp difficult to learn?

It's no more difficult to learn than any other instrument. If you really want to learn and you practice, you'll learn quickly. It's all about motivation.

Do I need to own a harp to learn to play?

For online lessons, you'll need to have your own harp. You can also buy a harp from Anne. She uses Triplett Harps as rentals and can help you get started on a rent-to-own harp, and is an authorized dealer if you decide you want to purchase a harp in the future. (Note: Anne only rents to students taking lessons from her in her studio. Rentals are not available to students taking online lessons.)

What does Anne teach?

Anne assesses your goals and your experience before designing a learning path that is right for you. For this reason, her lessons are always one-on-one and not taught in a group fashion. Of course, parents are welcome to sit in on their child's lesson.

What is Anne's experience?

Anne studied music theory and received her formal music education at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). When the Celtic harp piqued her interest, she studied harp techniques from world-renowned harpist Sylvia Woods and later contributed to her book Music Theory & Arranging Techniques for Folk Harps. Anne also studied professional stage performance with Ed Hooks (San Francisco, CA) and at the Living History Centre (Novato, CA). Anne applied her formal training to teaching music for the Los Angeles Unified School District. She continues to work with students presenting educational demonstrations for school assemblies. Anne has given workshops to students in the Sacramento Waldorf School, El Dorado Union School District, Merced Union High School District, and Minden Elementary School. She has taught harp since 1987, offering educational demonstrations, focused workshops, and taking on private students. She performed on the 2015 GRAMMY® Award Winning Best New Age Album, "Winds of Samsara".

I teach harp lessons to students of all ages. I believe in positive encouragement, goal-setting, and a balance of technical discipline and fun! I have nearly 15 years of experience teaching all skill levels, and 7 of those years were spent as a full-time harp instructor teachings hundreds of students in Atlanta Public School system. I would love to meet you and help you discover the joy and confidence that comes from playing beautiful music. I am always happy to help students get started on the harp and will guide you through every facet of renting/purchasing an instrument.

About Carolyn
Sharing my love of music and teaching others is my passion. I began teaching piano and harp lessons when I was in high school. After earning two degrees in music performance at the University of Arizona, I continued my love of teaching by working as the Artistic Director of the Urban Youth Harp Ensemble for 7 years. There I taught harp lessons to hundreds of students, and tried to make music fun and accessible to everyone regardless of their background. I believe that students learn best when the teacher is able to balance hard work and discipline with joy, humor, and a caring relationship with each student.

I am a french professionnal harpist. I can make harp lessons in French if you also want to improve your French language or in English. I love teaching! I studied classical music in a Conservatory in Paris. I got my Gold Medal and my first price in Harp. I also studied jazz music in a jazz school. I like playing different kind of music: celtic, pop, rock, jazz, word music and classical music of course. I've been teaching the harp since a long time. I was a harp teacher in a Conservatory in France for more 23 years. I play on a classical harp and electric harp with effects and amp. You can listen to me on my website: http://www.sonates-en-duo. I hope to hear from you!!!!

About Maiwenn
Bonjour, my name is Maïwenn. It's a celtic name. I come from France, from Paris, where I grew up. I love playing the harp. Music is one of the most important thing of the life. You can share it and play with other musicians. Music helps to feel better and positive. I love playing different kind of music because music stays music. I'd be very enjoyed to teach you the harp and maybe to help you to learn few words in French. I started to learn the music at the age of 7 years old. I obtained a gold medal for harp and a degree in music studies at the Conservatory. In 2005 I received my first prize for harp and I became the first harpist in the Symphony and Philharmonic Orchestra of the Paris Conservatory. I regurlarly give many concerts with my different bands. I’ve been teaching harp at different levels for many years. I’ve been working with
a lot event planning agencies specialized in weddings in France for an international clientele. In 2006, I form a classical duo. I am very pleased to propose my duet « Sonates en Duo » an unusual alliance between a soprano saxophone and a harp. We record our first album under the name of Sonates en Duo. In 2011, I set up “Twinkel Quintet”, an electro-acoustic experimental jazz band. Twinkel Quintet explores an unlimited repertory where freedom of expression and experimentation are revealed through my compositions and arrangements of jazz standards, original acoustic browsing with stamps and appliances. For me, the Twinkel Quintet represents, above all, a desire to access and develop a musical project based on her instrument, the harp, - an instrument that is little known in this kind of music, and which provides great scope for creativity. Indeed, the music of the Twinkel Quintet is music that is at the crossroads of jazz and contemporary music, full of moods and colors that awaken and challenge our curiosity.

Want to learn the harp "differently"? Come to me! :)
I have been playing harp for 20 years, studied classical music for 10 years and then started exploring other styles like Jazz, Pop, World Music, Mediterranean Music,... by studying, traveling, meeting new people.
I like to approach the harp "differently".
For beginners, we will start, of course, with the basics of the technique, we will develop the ear, start learning some great and fun rhythmical tunes and new styles on the harp :)
For more advanced harpists, we will explore different styles, develop the rhythm on the harp, improvise, learn different jazz standards, try arrangements of known pieces (you can request anything), and even include singing if you wish :)
Here are some highlights of my biography
- Graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston (2017) and Valencia - Spain (2015).
-Created a new Master Class program for harpists (Harp Jazz, Modern Harp), performed in Poland and Colombia.
- The Voice France (2012)
- ...

About Pia
I am a professional harpist/singer, composer and arranger raised in Belgium.
I graduated from the Music Academy International (Nancy) in voice and from Berklee College of Music (Boston) in harp where I performed in many different settings and styles of music (Jazz, Pop, Mediterranean music, Middle Eastern music, Latin music,...). I was also part of "The Voice" France in 2012 where I made it to the top 20. Additionally, I traveled a lot and performed in many different festivals around the world where I also gave master classes about the Harp Jazz & Modern Harp.

I had been classically trained as a harpist for 10 years and have dedicated 10 other years of my life to "evolving" the function of the harp in music. I incorporate the harp in various styles of music outside of the classical tradition. I perform original compositions and covers th
at feature the harp in different settings and styles of music.

I teach harp students of all different ages and experience levels.
With beginners, we will start, of course, by learning the foundation of the technique as well as developing the ear and the rhythm. We will start learning different styles of music using excellent and very fun exercices and tunes.
With more advanced harpists, we will be able to explore different styles of music more deeply, develop the rhythm on the harp, improvise, learn different jazz standards, try arrangements of known pieces (you can request anything you like), and even include singing if you wish :)

I love to teach the harp "differently" to open more horizons.
I love to teach while having fun! I always listen to the individual needs of my students and try to create the best environment for them. I want them to feel confortable and therefore be ready to learn and share in the best conditions.
