I am a classically trained musician who loves playing around with pop and jazz in her spare time. My philosophy is that I will teach whichever genre will inspire the student to sit down and practice!

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, and l will tailor my teaching to your learning style. Whether you are taking lessons for fun or are disciplined and serious, you will be continuously improving while feeling challenged. My 10 years of piano study and 8 years of flute background helped me advance quickly at the harp while starting at the age of 16.

As an adult beginner, I was a little apprehensive but Adrienne immediately made me feel comfortable. She's very interested in my goals and dedicated to helping me achieve them. Working a full-time job with inconsistent hours can be challenging and she's always accommodating.

My son Christopher had a lesson with Adrienne. He liked her very much and is looking forward to his next lesson. She has a lovely personality, and I think she will work very well with him.

Adrienne worked with my daughter on a special piece on the harp, which was new to her. She has a caring, consistent demeanor and high expectations for her students. My daughter enjoyed going to her sessions and learned in the best situation possible. Thank you Adrienne!

As a harp teacher, all of my
students play scales, arpeggios, and technical exercises in
their lessons. I believe having a strong technical base is the foundation for
every part of playing and you can't learn without it. I will set the repertoire
for students according to their technical progress and although I may
take into consideration a student's desires to learn a certain piece, there has
to be time and they have to be ready for it. I have both short term and long
term goals for each student that involve theory, technical ability, and
repertoire both orchestral and solo. Adult students still have to learn
technique, it makes things much more fun and easy six months later, I promise! Beginning students will learn how to read notes, understand basic theory, and technique in a short amount of time, so don't be scared if you have never had a music lesson before.

I require all students make
at least an hour a day commitment to practice. I teach mostly the ...

Alexandra Perdew is a one of a kind instructor. She not only pushes her students to excel, but I truly believe that she inspires greatness. She treats her students with the utmost respect and works diligently to provide them with every possible resource needed for learning. She is not a teacher who will let anyone get by with putting in half the effort. She motivates me to work and perform at the highest level possible.

I started lessons with Anne as a beginner harp student with about a year of prior experience. Anne helped me to get through Sylvia Wood's "Teach Yourself" book and I am now at an intermediate level. Lessons were enjoyable and relaxed while still being focused and informative. I am very happy with the progress I have made with Anne and would recommend her as a teacher.

I'm the person Fred is referring to. I have Anne to thank for making my dream of learning to play the harp a reality. I rented a harp from Anne and took lessons every 2 weeks. Her lessons were progressive making it easy to learn the next step (as long as I practiced). Soon I was playing real songs! Anne was patient, understanding, and knowledgeable not only about playing the harp and proper technique, but also about feeding and care of the harp and performance. While Anne is a professional (and a Grammy winner), she is also down to earth with a ready smile and laugh. If you have an interest in learning to play the harp, I highly recommend Anne!

When I was nursing a patients wife brought in her harp and played. I was so impressed with the soothing sound I asked her where she learned. She got me in contact with Ann and I started taking lessons. Having studied music I learned quickly. Yet I must say Ann is an excellent teacher. She is patient, encouraging and supportive. Clearly she is capable of teaching any one at any age. If you are interested in learning this most beautiful of instruments I highly recommend Ann your teacher. You will not be disappointed. You will also be very proud at what you will be able to learn in such a short time. This is also something you will have for a life time.

The harp is my favorite instrument. I currently offer lessons from beginner to intermediate levels. My method of teaching harp is unique because I teach both learning styles of "right-brained" (intuitive, creative, expressive, and improvising) with the "left-brained" style of logic, order, organization, theory, structure, and sight-reading.

You will learn proper technique, grace, and expression, as well as the ability to flow with the music, or let the music play "through" you. For this, there are different patterns which are learned in the left hand while the right hand improvises melodies. You will learn how to embody music and carry it through your instrument.

In addition, I can also teach about therapeutic music according to the ancient "modes" of music and their effects on our different emotional states. In this way, you can help to comfort others (and yourself) through your harp playing--making practicing a fun and enjoyable activity!

I am a harpist at heart since the day I set my eyes on this angelic instrument at the age of 12. Every sound made is immediately comforting and soothing. My experience ranges from teaching children and adults of all backgrounds. I founded Harp4all Music Conservatory and have regular harp ensemble practices and recitals. I teach from several method books including Harp Olympics and Fun From the First. My teachers include Susan McDonald, Elizabeth Richter, Ellie Choate. Susan McDonald has strongly influenced my teaching style and performance.

Sara is the kindest piano instructor. Although it's online teaching, my daughter has continued to embrace her learning and advance to a higher level. Sara is patient and teaches in a way that my daughter (10 years of age) understands. I appreciate the opportunities Sara provides for my daughter to perform before a Guild judge to challenge her learning further. My daughter has been with Sara for about three years and we're blessed to have her in our lives.

Lessons last about 30 minutes. I begin with teaching hand/harp position and we then progress to learning to read music! Lessons are tailored for the individual student's learning style (once I have determined the style). Special needs students are welcomed! I provide music for beginners but a tutorial book will eventually be needed. I strive to make lessons fun and interesting. I'm a teacher who believes a little encouragement goes a LONG way! (Harps available for rent.)

Anne is a very encouraging and caring teacher. Her enthusiasm is contagious--it has caused me to develop a love for harp and Celtic music.

Also, now that I am older, I appreciate her flexibility in giving me lessons in my home and putting up with my noisy birds!
