Adrienne K.

Philadelphia, PA

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.

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.

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 ...

Amanda is a perfect fit for my online harp instruction. I have a very busy schedule and she is able to help me make the most of my practice and lesson times. She is an excellent and very flexible teacher, working with you to achieve your goals for the instrument - classical or improvisational, or both. I am looking forward to learning more about the therapeutic application of the harp in my field of integrative medicine.

I am a strong advocate of the harp Salzedo style and have been trained extensively in that style alone. The top priority is finger/hand technique and learning to produce the correct tone. Because of the level of difficulty that Salzedo learning requires, a certain amount of piano is needed. If you are interested in harp lessons, I would first like to discuss the amount of previous piano training each student has had.

Laura was my daughter’s piano teacher for 2 years at Cary School of Music. Overall, she is just an amazing teacher. Laura is very knowledgeable and always very positive; she can handle all challenges that come up teaching kids; hence, she is extremely well with kids. She knows how to challenge the kids at the right pace and still make the lessons fun. My daughter describes her “fun, friendly, and kind.” My daughter has had five piano teachers so far, and Laura has been the best!!
