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.

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.

Private Harp Teacher

The harp has honestly taught me so many valuable lessons and I would not be the same person without it. I highly recommend it because it is a glorious instrument that will change your life. You will learn technique, theory, dynamics, and different styles of playing the harp. Anyone can play the harp regardless of age. I would say a lesson with me is encouraging, yet challenging. I would you to fall in love with the harp, just as much as I am in love with it and I also want you to feel as though you are being stretched. Happy harping!

Lauren is getting me started with harp basics. I was using a cell phone with zoom and it really would be much better if I used the laptop. Lauren is very encouraging and it'll be tedious until I learn the hand and finger positions very well.

Lauren has taught my then 5 year old harp. She was very patient, kind, and encouraging. I highly recommend her as a teacher. She taught my daughter not only harp, but some piano as well. She made the lessons fun and interactive. My daughter looked forward to her lessons and was even motivated to practice!

Online Harp Teacher

Is it hard to learn a musical instrument? That’s usually the first question
people ask. My answer? Not at all! I teach music based on the Irish/Celtic tradition. First, you'll learn to play by ear, and then when you're comfortable with where everything is on the harp, we'll move on to reading notes. Playing in the Celtic tradition is heavily based on improvisation, and learning the freedom of what it means for the music to come from within you. Learning the harp is all about welcoming music into your life, and making it a part of you.

Kathryn has really done a great job teaching the basics of singing to our almost 7 year old daughter. She is the best singing teacher ever and has helped our daughter learn several new songs in a short time. She is very easy going and adapts her style to her students.

Online Harp Teacher

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 is everything you could ever want in a first-rate teacher: she is inspiring, devoted, nurturing, exciting, knowledgeable, a fierce advocate for her students - the list goes on and on. However, what makes Alexandra truly remarkable is her almost magical ability to instantly spark intrinsic motivation - and a love of music - in all of her students. If you are looking to learn from a truly life-changing teacher, look no further than Alexandra Perdew-Bhatt.

Alexandra has met all my expectations. She is very patient. I feel like we are moving along at a good pace. I had zero musical experience and after only 3 lessons can read basic sheet music and actually have music come out of the piano!! I am enjoying the whole process.

Great first lesson! Looking forward to next week.

I was always looking forward to her lessons: she inspired us to practice for competitions and she always encouraged me to play in front of an audience, giving the very best of my self.
Playing the harp has always been a great joy for me thanks to her lessons."

"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!"

"A teenage boy and a 40-year-old woman do not go about learning an instrument (or music theory) in the same way, and Alexandra knows how to tailor her lessons to each students' needs -- definitely not a one-size-fits all teacher. Cheerful and encouraging, she knows how to walk the fine line between demanding excellent work and being a control freak. Whether you or your child want to learn music theory for any instrument, or the harp in particular, you can't go wrong with Alexandra. Also, for those who have to listen to anyone practicing a new instrument, it's hard to make an ugly sound on a harp."
