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!

As a teacher with more than 10 years of teaching experience, I have specialized in teaching young children ages 3 - 12. I have taught all levels and all ages but I found that teaching young children is where I feel most fulfilled and connected! Although I am a certified in the Suzuki Pedagogy Method, I cater my lessons to fit the needs of each individual student and will find teaching methods that will be most beneficial to the individual student.

About Evamarie

Growing up in a musical family in the Bay Area, California - her mother and brother are pianists and organists, and her dad a singer - it was no surprise that Evamarie would also find a passion in music. Picking up her first violin at 5 years old, she completed her formal musical training at the B

Singing can be scary, especially in front of people. I take a very laid back approach to singing lessons in my studio. We begin with a quick 5-10 minute vocal warm up and then jump into a song the student has picked to learn. We focus on tone, lyric memorization, emotion, pitch, breathing, enunciation, and confidence in the lesson.

About Jennifer

About Kasumi

Hi, my name is Kasumi and I am a graduate of the Eastman School of Music, the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, and an alumni of The United States Army Field Band, where I worked as a professional flutist for seven years. I currently study with the principal flutist of the San Francisco Symphony

Bonnie B.
I have been a flute teacher for forty years with many outstanding and nationally award-winning students but Kasumi stands out among my favorite students and performers.

I was so lucky to have Kasumi start in 6th grade and continue through high school with me. Along the way she picked up many awards through the Seattle Flute Society, the Seattle Young Artists, and the Seattle Youth Symphony where she was first chair in every orchestra. Her high school career culminated in being selected to attend the very prestigious Eastman School of Music with a very generous scholarship.

Kasumi has a sparkly personality and that sparkle shines in her playing. Building on a solid musical and technical base she adds her own distinctive ideas and nuances to create a personal performance.

Having been part of the creative team to produce The United States Army Field Band Flute Fundamentals DVD, Kasumi is well equipped to teach beginners who have never opened a flute case to serious students hoping for a musical career- and to make it fun!
Dhivya K.
Kasumi has been a colleague of mine since our time together at Eastman. Her knowledge of flute pedagogy and technique is impressive and she plays with warmth and clarity. However, it is her enthusiasm, kindness, and patience that make her a joy to work with, both for students and colleagues. I would highly recommend Kasumi to anyone considering flute lessons!
Pamela D.
I couldn't recommend Kasumi highly enough! I have known and worked with her for 10 years, from being in the same class at the Eastman School of Music to now working together in the US Army Field Band. She is extremely professional and always easy to work with. Anyone would be lucky to work with her!!

He makes himself available, and is gracious when circumstances prevents the lesson for that week. Given my busy schedule, I've had to stop the guitar lessons. However, I just saw that they may be able to be done online?...If that's the case, please contact me Jimmy. I'd love to re-start asap.

5 Maintenance Tips for Violin Bows

All musical instruments require attention and maintenance. When it comes to the violin, however, it is easy to forget that the bow needs as much care as the instrument itself. After all, the way you treat your violin bows will affect the way the violin sounds. If too much resin builds up on the hairs, for example, the sound will come out wrong. While it may not be as costly to repair or replace violin bows, why waste money when it’s easy to keep your violin bows in good working condition? …
