From the Beatles to Bach to the Beastie Boys

About Adrienne
"So Russell, what do you love about music?"

"To begin with...everything."

One of my favorite quotes from my favorite movie, Almost Famous.

I'll spare you the snooze worthy details of my background, which is probably similar to everyone's profile on here. Instead I'll highlight what sets 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.

Communicative - I'm available 24/7 (well, minus the hours I'm sleeping) if you have any questions during your practice durin
g the week. I accept text messages and videos. I support you at all times!

References and Experience - I've been teaching for over 5 years and believe I have a fresh approach to an outdated teaching method.

What a great first lesson! I chose Adrienne for a harp teacher because of her description, "From the Beatles, to Bach, to the Beastie Boys..." I'm a classically trained guitarist, full-time guitar teacher, and contemporary guitar/vocal performer. I bought a Celtic harp last spring, thought maybe I could learn via Youtube videos. Nope. Not enough good instruction, not enough motivation. I was thrilled to find that Adrienne is BIG on technique, as I am with my guitar students. She was so encouraging throughout our Take Lessons Classroom session! I have a lot of practicing to do before next week's lesson, and I am so psyched!

Adrienne taught my daughter Harp. Adrienne was incredible with her, making her feel comfortable and happy to be playing, even when my daughter did not want to play. I especially liked how she was always on time, never late.

As an adult beginner, I was a little apprehensive but Adrienne immediately made me feel comfortable. She's very interested in my goals and dedicated to helping me achieve them. Working a full-time job with inconsistent hours can be challenging and she's always accommodating.

I live and breathe harp as a composer, teacher and performer. Let me help you to discover the challenge and elegance of this instrument. Weekly lessons are required. Folk harp (lever) and classical harp (pedal) welcome

About Michele
I have been teaching strings, piano, harp and drums since 1999. Many of my students have studied with me for years and developed a lifelong love of music. Some have gone on to be professionals.

I have been tutoring music therapy students as well as teaching music composition for seven years.

I strive to help students achieve their musical goals however I can, but I do not tolerate laziness or half-hearted attempts.

Music can be a tool and thus, summers are dedicated to fun, composition and learning to record.

I am a harpist at heart since the day I set my eyes on this angelic instrument at the age of 12. Every sound made is immediately comforting and soothing. My experience ranges from teaching children and adults of all backgrounds. I founded Harp4all Music Conservatory and have regular harp ensemble practices and recitals. I teach from several method books including Harp Olympics and Fun From the First. My teachers include Susan McDonald, Elizabeth Richter, Ellie Choate. Susan McDonald has strongly influenced my teaching style and performance.

About Sara
Hi! My name is Sara. My studio began in 2000, teaching one violin student. I took a break and went to college to earn my A.A. in Music and my Piano Performance Certificate from Riverside Community College in California. I graduated Great Distinction and was on the Dean's list. I received many piano and academic scholarships. While in college I started my studio in Riverside California teaching Piano to an autistic child. I taught him 3 times a week and made exceptional progress. I enjoyed it so much I started teaching full time in 2008 teaching piano, harp, violin, voice, guitar, flute and clarinet. Soon I had 50 students and created a 501 (c) (3) non-profit music school. My students and I perform for the public, including nursing homes. The performances are important for the students progress as well as the Piano Guild where students are
adjudicated by judges in a non competitive environment. Moving back to my hometown, I am excited to meet new students!

This was my daughter's first lesson. My daughter was pretty nervous at first, but Sara made us both feel very comfortable and at ease. She has such patience and grace and her kindness just flows from her. She puts a smile on your face and assures confidence within you that you can learn to play the violin. We look forward to many more lessons with Sara! Thank you Sara, and God bless you!

My lessons with Liann are very good. I believe she is definitely one of the best in my option, patient and is an excellent teacher. Although only 5 lessons with her so far, I was able to learn a lot, much more than with previous harp tutors I've had before, and I hope to have continued tutoring with her for a long time

I am a french professionnal harpist. I can make harp lessons in French if you also want to improve your French language or in English. I love teaching! I studied classical music in a Conservatory in Paris. I got my Gold Medal and my first price in Harp. I also studied jazz music in a jazz school. I like playing different kind of music: celtic, pop, rock, jazz, word music and classical music of course. I've been teaching the harp since a long time. I was a harp teacher in a Conservatory in France for more 23 years. I play on a classical harp and electric harp with effects and amp. You can listen to me on my website: http://www.sonates-en-duo. I hope to hear from you!!!!

About Maiwenn
Bonjour, my name is Maïwenn. It's a celtic name. I come from France, from Paris, where I grew up. I love playing the harp. Music is one of the most important thing of the life. You can share it and play with other musicians. Music helps to feel better and positive. I love playing different kind of music because music stays music. I'd be very enjoyed to teach you the harp and maybe to help you to learn few words in French. I started to learn the music at the age of 7 years old. I obtained a gold medal for harp and a degree in music studies at the Conservatory. In 2005 I received my first prize for harp and I became the first harpist in the Symphony and Philharmonic Orchestra of the Paris Conservatory. I regurlarly give many concerts with my different bands. I’ve been teaching harp at different levels for many years. I’ve been working with
a lot event planning agencies specialized in weddings in France for an international clientele. In 2006, I form a classical duo. I am very pleased to propose my duet « Sonates en Duo » an unusual alliance between a soprano saxophone and a harp. We record our first album under the name of Sonates en Duo. In 2011, I set up “Twinkel Quintet”, an electro-acoustic experimental jazz band. Twinkel Quintet explores an unlimited repertory where freedom of expression and experimentation are revealed through my compositions and arrangements of jazz standards, original acoustic browsing with stamps and appliances. For me, the Twinkel Quintet represents, above all, a desire to access and develop a musical project based on her instrument, the harp, - an instrument that is little known in this kind of music, and which provides great scope for creativity. Indeed, the music of the Twinkel Quintet is music that is at the crossroads of jazz and contemporary music, full of moods and colors that awaken and challenge our curiosity.

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.

Want to learn the harp "differently"? Come to me! :)
I have been playing harp for 20 years, studied classical music for 10 years and then started exploring other styles like Jazz, Pop, World Music, Mediterranean Music,... by studying, traveling, meeting new people.
I like to approach the harp "differently".
For beginners, we will start, of course, with the basics of the technique, we will develop the ear, start learning some great and fun rhythmical tunes and new styles on the harp :)
For more advanced harpists, we will explore different styles, develop the rhythm on the harp, improvise, learn different jazz standards, try arrangements of known pieces (you can request anything), and even include singing if you wish :)
Here are some highlights of my biography
- Graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston (2017) and Valencia - Spain (2015).
-Created a new Master Class program for harpists (Harp Jazz, Modern Harp), performed in Poland and Colombia.
- The Voice France (2012)
- ...

About Pia
I am a professional harpist/singer, composer and arranger raised in Belgium.
I graduated from the Music Academy International (Nancy) in voice and from Berklee College of Music (Boston) in harp where I performed in many different settings and styles of music (Jazz, Pop, Mediterranean music, Middle Eastern music, Latin music,...). I was also part of "The Voice" France in 2012 where I made it to the top 20. Additionally, I traveled a lot and performed in many different festivals around the world where I also gave master classes about the Harp Jazz & Modern Harp.

I had been classically trained as a harpist for 10 years and have dedicated 10 other years of my life to "evolving" the function of the harp in music. I incorporate the harp in various styles of music outside of the classical tradition. I perform original compositions and covers th
at feature the harp in different settings and styles of music.

I teach harp students of all different ages and experience levels.
With beginners, we will start, of course, by learning the foundation of the technique as well as developing the ear and the rhythm. We will start learning different styles of music using excellent and very fun exercices and tunes.
With more advanced harpists, we will be able to explore different styles of music more deeply, develop the rhythm on the harp, improvise, learn different jazz standards, try arrangements of known pieces (you can request anything you like), and even include singing if you wish :)

I love to teach the harp "differently" to open more horizons.
I love to teach while having fun! I always listen to the individual needs of my students and try to create the best environment for them. I want them to feel confortable and therefore be ready to learn and share in the best conditions.
