I design, build and perform with the Folk Harp (ie: Celtic Harp), which is a smaller harp, usually with no pedals.

About Thomas
I am a professional musician who can give instruction on many musical styles ranging from Classical to Folk Music from several different countries. All ages are welcome!
As a student, I was involved for many years as a violist with The Louisville Youth Orchestra, I became a graduate of the Youth Performing Arts School in Louisville, Ky. in 1981 majoring in music and theater. I have since performed in a a broad spectrum of musical involvements including accompanying international folk dance troupes, performing Celtic and traditional music at events in several countries, composing music for, and directing several theatrical productions. At the same time I have been involved in educating children in music in several Community Schools throughout the Eastern U.S.. I now reside in Crestwood, Ky, where where I teach and operate a repair shop
out of my home called 'Hewn from the Mountain Music Cafe''. I also perform in the viola section of the Louisville Philharmonia, and have served as as Public Relations Director on the Board of Directors.

*** Lesson Details ***
My objective is to encourage enthusiasm and diligence in my students towards Music and the Performing Arts, focusing on self-esteem, presentation, and public performance. For strings, I incorporate sight reading with ear training using various acclaimed methods modeled after the Suzuki method, which I am in the process of obtaining certification. I value the importance of ensemble playing, and will orchestrate many such activities.

The TakeLessons.com program has many advantages because it is a completely interactive data sharing system for Teachers, Students and Parents. I believe it will be well worth your investment.

*** Specialties ***
classical, traditional folk, international folk, Israeli folk dance music, popular dance music, others

Tom is very patient with younger students that get distracted easily. One of my children is very interested in learning Irish folk music and Tom is great about helping him explore his interests in music. I love having lessons in home. It's very convient and allows me to keep my toddler entertained while my other children are doing lessons. Lessons are also affordable. I would definitely recommend Tom!

My son has been working with Tom for over a year, and we definitely enjoyed the entire process. My son is relatively young (5 when he started), so for us the most important part is to evaluate and inspire his interest with music and violin. Tom did a great job in tailoring his lessons towards my son's interest and learning style, and made the learning process very fun.

From the Beatles to Bach to the Beastie Boys

About Adrienne
One of my favorite quotes from my favorite movie, Almost Famous:
"So Russell, what do you love about music?"
"To begin with...everything."

My musical background is probably like many other teachers - Masters of Music, 10+ years teaching experience, etc. Here are some characteristics that I think set me apart:

Broad Music Style and Interest - On any given day, I can listen to, perform, practice, or play everything from the Beatles to Bach to the Beastie Boys

Extensive Training - I studied with the Principal Harpist of the Philadelphia Orchestra and have performed with the prestigious Curtis Symphony Orchestra

Focused but Fun - I keep students on task but have a light hearted, humorous approach to teaching.

Adaptible - I've been teaching for over 10 years and believe I have a fresh approach to an outdated teaching method.
I recognize that not all teaching approaches work the same on every student and am able to shift accordingly.

Communicative - I'm available anytime if you have any questions during your practice during the week. I accept text messages and videos. I support you at all times!

Experienced Harp teacher of 30 years available for eager students aged 10 through adult! I teach using the Suzuki Harp Method and other methods as needed. I structure the lessons around each student so that they are taught at their level and speed while encouraging and challenging them to excel further.

About Charlene
Over 30 years violin teaching experience. I have successfully taught students ages 3 to adult. Anyone can learn to play the violin. Lessons in a comfortable setting in my studio.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are taught in my home in a comfortable setting. Parents are encouraged to sit in on lessons and are expected to help their child practice. I teach the Suzuki Method and the Suzuki book and recording are required. I will change details to suit a student, for instance I teach note reading long before a traditional Suzuki teacher would and I will add non-Suzuki materials into lessons if needed.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Young students are started out on a play violin so they can learn the proper positions before they graduate to their real violin. I will assist parents in finding the right instrument for their child.


*** Specialties ***
I have never found a child who couldn't learn music. Obviously, some will learn faster than others, but with the right encouragement and help from their parents, any child can learn to play the violin.

Charlene possesses the perfect combination of skill, talent and temperament to make an excellent instructor and teacher. Not only does Charlene have significant skill and experience as a musician but also she has the ability to effectively demonstrate and communicate the principles and techniques of playing the violin from the most rudimentary level (i.e. my level) to the experienced level of serious talented students. Charlene does all this in a relaxed but serious manner. It has been my experience, that when noting deficiencies, Charlene addresses them with patience and corrects and guides the student along in a manner that is both honest and effective but never discouraging or dispiriting. Charlene is very adaptable at modifying her teaching methods or approach and can accommodate instructing elderly retirees (i.e. individuals like me) or some of the youngest students with the tiniest violins you ever saw. In other words, Charlene is very good at assessing a student's goals and asperations and customizing her approach to the individual student's needs and current abilities. Charlene sets clear goals for improvement and learning new techniques and motivates the student to improve and strive for a realistic and achievable level of skill. I would recommend Charlene to any student of any age and any skill level.

About Anne R.

Close
Placerville, CA
View Full Profile

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!

About Anne
Take harp lessons from a GRAMMY® Award winner! Anne has some 30 years of performance and teaching experience and would love to help you get started learning to play the harp, or help you continue on your harp adventures if you have had some previous lessons and experience. And, you can now take lessons from Anne no matter where you live in the world through a webcam and TakeLessons.com!!

Here is what Anne can help you learn:

Proper hand technique
Sight reading skills
Improvisation skills
Music theory
Repertoire building-Learning Celtic, Classical, Renaissance, Folk, and all kinds of tunes
Arranging music for the harp
Accompaniment skills
Performance skills
And much more!

Anne studied music theory and received her formal music education at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). When the Celtic harp piqued her in
terest, she studied harp techniques from world-renowned harpist Sylvia Woods and later contributed to her book: Music Theory & Arranging Techniques for Folk Harps. Anne is an active member of the American String Teacher's Association.

Take lessons online at her studio in South Lake Tahoe, California, or in in Placerville, California.

FAQs:

Do I need to have any musical experience to learn to play the Celtic harp?

It's not necessary to have any prior musical background before embarking on harp lessons. If you have never taken up an instrument before, Anne will teach you harp technique and how to read music, too. It's a plus if you have some past musical experience, because you'll already know the rudiments of reading sheet music. Anne teaches from ages 7 and up. If your child is younger than 7 and anxious to play the harp, get them started on the piano first. This way, when they come to Anne at an older age, they will already know how to read music (harp sheet music and piano sheet music look alike).

Is the harp difficult to learn?

It's no more difficult to learn than any other instrument. If you really want to learn and you practice, you'll learn quickly. It's all about motivation.

Do I need to own a harp to learn to play?

For online lessons, you'll need to have your own harp. You can also buy a harp from Anne. She uses Triplett Harps as rentals and can help you get started on a rent-to-own harp, and is an authorized dealer if you decide you want to purchase a harp in the future. (Note: Anne only rents to students taking lessons from her in her studio. Rentals are not available to students taking online lessons.)

What does Anne teach?

Anne assesses your goals and your experience before designing a learning path that is right for you. For this reason, her lessons are always one-on-one and not taught in a group fashion. Of course, parents are welcome to sit in on their child's lesson.

What is Anne's experience?

Anne studied music theory and received her formal music education at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). When the Celtic harp piqued her interest, she studied harp techniques from world-renowned harpist Sylvia Woods and later contributed to her book Music Theory & Arranging Techniques for Folk Harps. Anne also studied professional stage performance with Ed Hooks (San Francisco, CA) and at the Living History Centre (Novato, CA). Anne applied her formal training to teaching music for the Los Angeles Unified School District. She continues to work with students presenting educational demonstrations for school assemblies. Anne has given workshops to students in the Sacramento Waldorf School, El Dorado Union School District, Merced Union High School District, and Minden Elementary School. She has taught harp since 1987, offering educational demonstrations, focused workshops, and taking on private students. She performed on the 2015 GRAMMY® Award Winning Best New Age Album, "Winds of Samsara".

I'm a professional harpist who graduated from Yale University with a B.A. in Music with extensive teaching experience in the United States and Belgium. I am offering harp lessons to students of all backgrounds, levels, and ages.

I am currently in the process of completing my Doctor of Musical Arts at the CUNY Graduate Center. I hope to transfer the skills and knowledge I have obtained from working with some of the most renowned harpists to my own students.

Teaching is a passion for me. Whether you are just taking lessons for fun, or whether you are serious about creating a future professional career, I will be equally attentive to your needs. I like to ensure that my students progress during the lesson, but not at the expense of having fun! I believe that a relaxed atmosphere is essential to the learning experience.

I had the benefit of taking lessons from Chelsea after I had been learning to play for a bit over a year. She was both encouraging and warm personally, and gave me several ways to think about technique, which helped a great deal. She was able to give me insights to help me get into music theory, as well as technique and practical questions, all so valuable for a beginner!

Everyone has creative and musical abilities within, and it is the responsibility of the private instructor to bring those out in each student. For some people, learning an instrument comes very easily, and for others it is more of a challenge. Everyone learns differently, which is why private musical instruction is so crucial, no matter what the age of the student. A private instructor can customize learning opportunities so that the student can learn at his or her own pace, allowing the instructor to focus on each student's individual interests and passions. A private instructor can also provide customizedl feedback so that the student can improve upon weaker areas of playing and build upon strengths.

rganizations where they learn to work toward common goals. It reinforces mathematical concepts when we talk about rhythm. It invites learning about history when we discuss famous composers, and physics when the way sound is produced is demonstrated. For adults, it keeps their minds active and always learning. No one is too old to learn to play an instrument! Adults learn quickly, and can have great progress in a relatively short amount of time.

I believe lessons should be fun and expansive journeys. I enjoy truly connecting with each student in a light, enjoyable atmosphere. Lessons are tailored to meet each student where they are at, while still pushing them at a rate that inspires them. Positive reinforcement and constructive feedback are always used, while negative criticism is not. I specialize in teaching proper harp technique designed to allow the player to play for a lifetime! If pain arises from playing students will never be asked to push through pain or discomfort. Rather, we will find a different approach that works. Lastly, I love working with students on pieces they really love. No piece of music is off limits! We can make any song work on the harp!

About Pheobe
Hello there, and thank you so much for considering me as a potential teacher! I truly love teaching and so enjoy connecting with each and every student.

I have been playing the harp since age six. While I am primarily a classical pedal harpist, I also love to play jazz, pop, folk, and contemporary music. I love teaching all of these styles as well, and students may choose to play either the lever harp or the pedal harp.

I have been blessed to have studied with some incredible teachers. Studying Salzedo Technique with Cynthia Otis, herself a former student of Carlos Salzedo, allowed me to develop strong and stable harp technique. I went on to study both jazz and classical with Felice Pomeranz at Berklee College of Music. From these experiences, I have developed a style of teaching that focuses strongly on technique while incorpora
ting styles and pieces tailored to each individual student’s musical taste and goals.

Currently, I am completing a certification in Clinical Musicianship. I am thrilled to be learning about the endless healing components of harp music. I believe that music should be a source of joy, a belief that is ever present throughout her lessons.
