Private Harp Teacher

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.

**NB: Due to COVID restrictions, I will most likely be teaching virtually until summer or fall 2021, at which point I hope to resume in-person lessons in NYC. ...

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!

If you have an opportunity to study harp with Catherine, jump at the chance and count yourself fortunate! I have taken lessons with Catherine for over 10 years and she has guided me from a relative newcomer to the harp all the way into my professional career (playing for symphonies, opera, ballet, concerts, etc..). Catherine shares her vast knowledge and beautiful musical artistry in the most patient, kind and nurturing way I can imagine. It's a joy and an inspiration to study with Catherine and I always eagerly look forward to any time spent working with her!
Riley
I have known Mrs Cathy for over 8 years. She has always been very understanding and you can see how much she loves the harp. Our lessons are productive and challenging, but Mrs Cathy still makes it fun! I look forward to our lessons and feel like I’m learning a lot.
Angelle
Cathy is a gifted musician and an excellent teacher. For me, an adult student with a limited background in music, taking lessons with Cathy (both online and in person) has been the perfect fit. She is patient, makes lessons fun and interesting, understands my musical interests, and helps me find music that I enjoy playing. She has taught me not only technique but also some music theory, which has been very helpful. I am so pleased with my progress. Also, when I first started lessons, I had so many questions about caring for my harp. Cathy taught me how to tune my harp properly, transport it, and even change strings. She also taught me how to position myself properly when playing. Cathy is a wonderful resource for all things related to harps. I highly recommend her as a teacher.

Online Harp Teacher

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

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.

I highly recommend Kathryn. She is full of good ideas and helpful suggestions for everything from improving technique to writing down my own compositions. Her teaching style is relaxed and friendly. Its been a pleasure taking lessons from her.

"I highly reccommend Jill! She has taught my seven year old daughter online for the past 4 months. My daughter is an absolute beginner, however, is quickly progressing through the curriculum. 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. Give her a try; you won't regret it!"

"Anne is a fantastic teacher who brings so much warmth, patience, and skill to each lesson! She took me from a complete novice who didn't even know how to properly pluck a string to being able to impress family and friends with familiar songs. She doesn't have you go out and spend a ton on books or materials either, which I've experienced while learning other musical instruments. Anne provides very detailed assignment notes with each lesson too, which she then emails so you can have something tangible to refer to while practicing instead of having to take notes yourself or keep it all in your head somehow. Highly recommend taking lessons from one of the best!"
