Private Harp Teacher

I have been teaching harp for over 10 years. I teach with a strong emphasis in technique, employing mostly Salzedo styles with a few French styles in hand and arm position.

I have a series of books from which I teach for all ages, all abilities. At any point I encourage the student to learn songs they like, creating an enriched atmosphere of learning.

I teach music theory, exercises, and sight-reading alongside our weekly studies of pieces and songs. I will help you find the right materials so you can enjoy your lessons!

It is my goal to have students perform pieces with comfort, strength and for memory.

My teaching philosophy is to cultivate a love for music while learning the best way to approach the instrument and learning how to play well. Like any good goal, hard work and patience are needed, but ultimately love and the pursuit of making music.

Very fun first lesson with Elizabeth. She was very patient, and explained things such as technique and posture in a very detailed way. Excited for future lessons!
Kim D.
Elizabeth has been thourough, encouraging, and super cool! She even helped me find a good rental harp (and delivered it) ,and is scoring rock songs for me. She keeps track of progress, sends music to practice, and gives good pointers on technique. I've been playing multiple instruments for 40 years, the harp is a challenge, and I'm so blessed to have found her as a teacher. If you are considering which teacher to go with, go with Elizabeth. You won't be disappointed!!!

Private Harp Teacher

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!

About Mariah

I am a harpist and a scientist. At Brigham Young University, I minored in music, emphasizing in harp, while earning a geology degree. I also performed in the BYU Harp Ensemble. The formal training in harp at BYU gave me good footing in the basics of harp, complimenting my analytical bent on music.

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.
Jill W.
Mariah is such a joy to work with! Her excitement for music and the harp is so encouraging and inspiring! Her fun and bubbly personality will instantly put you at ease, while her knowledge of technique and hand position will help you learn correctly from the start. She also does a fantastic job of explaining things in a way that makes sense and is easy to understand! You will love learning the harp with Mariah!
Jonah
Mariah is amazing to work with and so passionate on the harp. She also has a few harps available to rent at an extremely low price, so if not having a harp is getting in the way of you learning possibly the most beautiful instrument in the world, Mariah would be a great option for you.

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.
George M.
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.
Patricia F.
Great first lesson! Looking forward to next week.

Online Harp Teacher

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!

"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."
