Lesson Details

Harp

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
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.

Becoming a musician invites a lifetime of learning into one’s life. For children, it allows them to participate in musical groups and organizations 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.
