Teaching all levels, from beginning through advanced. I recommend adults to take one-hour lessons every other week. Children do better with half hour lessons every week. Ask about renting a harp!

Private Harp Teacher

I’ve been teaching harp for 20 years. I cater my teaching style and repertoire to the needs of the individual. I believe this is a partnership, so I try to offer options wherever possible so the student can find the music they feel will help them express themselves. I focus on note reading, but I also examine shapes of chords and relations and patterns in order to make music reading as quick and easy as possible. Depending on the student, these added tricks may be huge way makers in their music making experience.

I offer recitals twice a year. For online students, I host a virtual recital. I believe that the more frequently we perform, the easier it is to overcome stage anxiety. I, personally, battle stage anxiety, so I am able to assist others with managing these same feelings.

My ultimate goal with every student is to foster a love for music, both at the harp and in general.

Phaedra is a professional colleague of mine. I have always been impressed with how well prepared her students are for competitions and auditions. Her attention to technical detail, and musicality show a dedication to, and love of teaching. During the Covid-19 pandemic, she is being extremely careful having her students wash their hands, and use hand sanitizer before, and during lessons.
Emma
I took piano lessons from Miss Paedra for about 5 years. I started when I was 6 years old. Miss Paedra is so kind and patient. She really helped me to grow and develop many skills and techniques with piano and theory. The background knowledge I got from Miss Paedra with music and theory altogether ultimately helped me out when starting to learn new instruments like the violin. I still play piano every now and then and I absolutely love and enjoy music. I really appreciate all the work and help I received when taking lessons. Miss Phaedra really helped to push and motivate me to practice and grow, and I know that she truly enjoys working with each of her students and wants the best for them.
Corie
I came to Phaedra as an adult harp student having had about a year experience prior. I had no idea how much I would grow with her as a teacher! She improved my technique, knowledge, skill level, and confidence as a harpist. She truly cares about her students and would find pieces for me to play that were at my level but would keep my interest. My two girls also took piano and harp lessons from her and loved her warmth and encouragement. Coming from no experience at all, I was surprised to see that they were playing Debussy and Chopin after only a few years. Their love for music began with the foundation Phaedra provided and still continues to this day. I was sad once we moved and were no longer to have her as an instructor as we have never found her equal.

Online Harp Teacher

Harp:
A stringed musical instrument that has a number of individual strings running at an angle to its soundboard; the strings are plucked with the fingers. Harps have been known since antiquity in Asia, Africa and Europe, dating back at least as early as 3500 BC. The instrument had great popularity in Europe during the Middle Ages and Renaissance, where it evolved into a wide range of variants with new technologies, and was disseminated to Europe's colonies, finding particular popularity in Latin America. We will start by learning how to tune, seating and hand/plucking placement. I have an easy to follow technique where you will learn the strings, notes, how to read music, rhythms, plucking techniques, and songs. As the student advances theory and soloing will be incorporated.

Karen was great!
Carter
This teacher misrepresented her ability to teach the C system chromatic button accordion. I don't believe that she has ever played one. I asked her before purchasing a set of classes if she knew this instrument and was competent to teach it, and she said she was.

She didn't have one, so she could never demonstrate anything I asked about. She didn't know the key layout. She didn't know the conventions for numbering fingers. She didn't know the basic home key scale pattern.

I waited until I'd finished four classes with my new teacher before writing this so I'd have a good basis for comparison. He is immensely better at teaching this than she was. It further convinced me that she never should have represented herself as competent to teach this particular instrument.

Karen is very patient & caring while teaching.
