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.

Chelsea is a fantastic teacher who combines a disciplined mastery of the harp with a genuine understanding of each student. She is engaging and kind with children and a lovely person and teacher in every way. We love working with her and it has been extremely gratifying to witness our children’s progress under her tutelage ! I feel so lucky to have her as our teacher.
Mary
Chelsea is WONDERFUL! She has supported every aspect of our son’s development with regard to his harp playing and we are so grateful for her support!! Chelsea is a top professional and anyone would be lucky to have her teach music!!
Stephanie
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!

There is no such thing as a musician with poor ear-training; it is a necessary skill for becoming fluent in the language of music. I teach ear-training as part of instrumental lessons (voice and piano) and a lessons by-themselves. You will learn how to read a vocal line by sight (without the aide of a piano), tap out rhythms, identify harmonic and melodic intervals, hear the difference between various chords in a harmonic progression, and transcribe music.

About Natalie

Natalie is a NYU and BMI Workshop trained composer of songs, musicals, and concert music who has helped many songwriters find their voice and fine-tune their skills. She is particularly adept at identifying what is keeping a song from working (whether it be music, lyrics or both) and helping writer

Very knowledgeable and experienced in not just playing the violin but teaching it as well.
Chris T.
At the age of 58 I decided to start taking violin lessons for 2 reasons, enjoyment of playing music and exercise my brain. I found Lucy K on the takelessons.com website and she was able to accommodate my request for lessons in my home on a Sunday. Starting from scratch, she taught me the fundamentals of playing and I have made some progress over the last 8 months. She is patient with me yet will push me along and at time bring me out of my comfort zone, which is good. She has the ability and training to teach students from early age to older adults like me. In addition, she also teaches piano, which my wife started lessons with Lucy K at the same time I started violin. She has my recommendation if you have interest in either violin or piano.

It is incredibly important for students to have a general understanding of music theory, regardless of their instrument. Music theory is the core of the music that we play and listen to, and it is a vital part of every student's music education. The purpose of music theory is to show students how music works, and for that reason, every music student should be exposed to it at some level.

Having started piano at the age of 7, I was taught music theory at a very beginning of my music education. I studied it throughout my childhood and into my collegiate years. I can teach this subject in detail and help the student develop a clear understanding of the music that they read and play.

About Sheila

My interest in music began at the age of seven when I began private instruction in classical piano, and by the age of ten, I began playing the flute. I received my Bachelor of Music with a degree in Music Education from the University of Redlands, where I studied flute with Sara Andon. There, I per

"Just had my first lesson with Glynis, and my first singing lesson ever, and couldn't be happier! As many can relate, I was a bit nervous about singing in front of someone, but immediately felt comfortable with Glynis. Her communication is great, and she seems genuinely interested in understanding what you hope to get out of the class, and helping you to get there. In my first lesson with her, I learned that my range is better than I thought it was, and she was as excited about that as I was! Couldn't ask for more from a teacher. For those who are on the verge of booking with her, just go for it, you'll be glad you did!"

"Sue is a wonderful teacher and I would recommend her to anyone. I'm in my late 20's and have never played a musical instrument in the life, but I was eager to learn. After looking at many teachers I decided to take lessons with Sue and I couldn't be happier. I've taken 3 lessons with her so far and plan on taking more in the future.

Although we follow the lessons in a piano book Sue adds additional insight and helpful tips about the lesson at hand. She gives you tips on finger positioning, keeping the same pace while playing songs, and much more that you can't get from just a book. Even if you plan on learning mainly through a book I'd suggest taking a few lessons from Sue as well to compliment your study habits and to make sure you're learning everything correctly. Sometimes she also provides some interesting information about the song you are learning like it's backstory and it's popularity which I find great additional information.

Sue is very patient and lets you learn at a pace that is comfortable for you. I've never felt any pressure while taking a lesson and enjoy the setup she has in her home. Again, if you are looking for a piano lesson, no matter your experience level, I think you'll be happy having Sue as a teacher."

"My daughter had taken private singing lessons through her school for two years before working with Bethany. Her previous teacher had a set "curriculum", and she wanted my daughter to conform to her method, even though it did not seem to address either my daughter's strengths or deficits. Suffice it to say, it was not a great experience.
When we first contacted Bethany, I explained that my daughter just really loves to sing. It is an outlet for her. She's not trying to "get" anywhere in particular with her singing. She wants to learn good technique through songs that she enjoys, and through songs that fit her current range and gradually stretch her. Bethany has been amazing. She is thoughtful about song choices. She is encouraging, and has a very positive approach. She has really gotten my daughter to think critically about her singing. Often, my daughter will talk about what she is working on with Bethany, and it is always from the perspective that she can improve. It is a far cry from having her come out of her previous lessons feeling completely defeated. I really appreciate how Bethany takes kids where they are, and asks their input around what they want to learn. Also, she has been so flexible when we have had to change our schedule with her. She is really great."
