Karen is a committed, dedicated and extremely talented teacher. The unique techniques I have learned in studying with her have greatly improved my singing, the quality of my voice, and my range is far greater. I am able to sing notes I would not have thought possible. Karen loves what she does and every lesson has been an extremely enjoyable learning experience.

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.

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!

Each lesson utilizes both ...

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!
