Whether you're looking for a unique music opportunity, you love the look and sound, you want to play healing music, or much more, I want to help you reach your goals. My students have performed for friends and family, arranged their own songs, won university scholarships to study music, and played at Carnegie Hall.

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.

Her main reach is for every student to get to know the harp in the unique way that each individual student can and desires. Whether it is through the perfection of orchestral excerpts, study of traditional classical pieces, exploration of improvisation, or even the transcription of a Chet Baker solo or a pop song arrangement, she hopes to see her student fall more in love with music through the harp. :-)

Amy is such a genuine and soulful teacher! I am so grateful with how patient, encouraging, and understanding she was throughout my lessons :). She is thoroughly knowledgeable of so many types of harp repertoire and picked perfect pieces for me to learn to match my personality and musical tastes. As I learned more and more, she always knew exactly what to say to help me master the piece. She is such a sweetheart and so inspiring with her dedication to and passion for teaching the harp and helping her students excel- I wish I could rate my experience with her teaching a higher score!
Joanna
Lessons with Amy are so great! I had beginner harp lessons with her for half a year and loved her natural, encouraging and friendly demeanor! She's also great at the use of demonstration to teach, especially as I am a visual learner. From day one, I learned about the great history of harp technique and developed focused goals to work towards!

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.

"Eleonora is an extremely talented musician and harpist. She is very patient and caring to her students. She tailors lessons to fit the students needs, which I personally found it amazing!!! Harp was not very easy for me to learn and I took a very long time to learn my pieces, but with Eleonora’s guidance I was able to learn them in the end. Thanks to her positive and encouraging teaching style, harp lessons were always enjoyable. I would highly recommend Eleonora…you will not regret to take her lessons!!"
