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.

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC

Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

Dr. S. believes that great playing is derived from great technique. Technique is an essential part of becoming a successful musician. Dr. S. helps her students perfect their technical abilities allowing them to explore vast musical repertoire.

Musicality is what brings music to life. Every musician has their own unique ideas that are expressed through their playing. Dr. S. helps her students develop their natural creative instincts and convey their ideas through their music.

Learning how to play music is fun and rewarding, however it also requires a great deal of self discipline. Practicing your instrument consistently is necessary to become a successful musician. Music is a fun way to learn the value of hard work and self discipline for students of all ages.

I welcome adults and children who are new to the harp or who want to increase their skills. As a teacher, I focus on helping students be able to play the music that is interesting or fun for them. I will start with a firm background on the basics of hand position and reading music, and then we can take it away with what thrills you, whether it is pop, folk, classical, religious, or something else. I hope we can take this journey in music together!

Mariah was a joy to work with. Her passion for the harp is contagious and her teaching style put me at ease immediately. I felt like I was talking to an old friend who happened to know a lot about the harp. She was very supportive and I look forward to working with her in the future.

As a music teacher of over 10 years I take a fun but structured approach to learning the harp. I've taught all ages and I individually work with each student to help them learn the music that they want to and reach the goals that they set for themselves. I also have a large emphasis on hand position and help my students have the very best technique so they can play their very best. We will typically start with exercises and technique and then move to music. I will then send written individual feedback after the lesson to help remind the student of what we are working on. I hope to have the chance to share my love of music with you!

Jill is amazing! I look forward to her class every week. I pretty much have zero experience with music and she has made learning the harp super fun and welcoming. She is encouraging and gives music that is just the right challenge. She has been progressing me every week and it’s been so exciting learning new things weekly.

Hi! So glad you stopped by! :)
My name is Moriah. I have been teaching harp and violin for several years and always love to see how my students get more and more excited about playing their instrument the more we learn. I can't wait for you to experience that too! I have been playing harp for over 13 years and violin for eight, successfully passed Israel's bagrut exam in harp, and am currently studying Music Education at the Jerusalem Teachers' College (Michlalah). But enough about me - not only will you learn harp or violin in the way that's best for you, tailored to your preferences and pace, but you will also learn to read sheet music, as well as music theory and ear training. And most of all, we'll have lots of fun!
I teach women and girls only. All ages and levels are welcome.
Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you might have.
Can't wait to meet you!

About Moriah

Nice to meet you! Music has been my passion ever since I plucked my first string on the harp 13 years ago, and even more once I started playing violin 8 years ago. I love teaching music (which I started doing in 12th grade) and enthusing my students about music too! I have performed in many concerts

"I started harp lessons when I was 8 years old, and neither my parents nor I ever thought about looking for another teacher. Pam Irwin's teaching style made it easy for me to learn many wedding songs, hymns, and classical pieces. This has led to numerous church performances as well as weddings and parties. I've been so blessed to have her as my teacher from the beginning all the way through the 12th grade. During my college freshman year, I won the talent show at Florida College playing the harp. She is well capable to take a beginner to the advanced level. She is patient, kind, thoughtful, and encouraging. I would not be the musician I am today if it weren't for her excellent teaching."

Jill keeps the lessons & activities fun, and engaing. She is a fantastic teacher, encouraging and oozing with positivity. Choosing Jill as our harp instructor has been the best decision for us.

My experience learning the harp was better because of her. I can't recommend her enough and hope others are able to experience the joy of learning a new instrument with her.
