Lesson Details

Harp

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I teach harp lessons to students of all ages. I believe in positive encouragement, goal-setting, and a balance of technical discipline and fun! I have nearly 15 years of experience teaching all skill levels, and 7 of those years were spent as a full-time harp instructor teachings hundreds of students in Atlanta Public School system. I would love to meet you and help you discover the joy and confidence that comes from playing beautiful music. I am always happy to help students get started on the harp and will guide you through every facet of renting/purchasing an instrument.

Teaching since:
May 2002

Sharing my love of music and teaching others is my passion. I began teaching piano and harp lessons when I was in high school. After earning two degrees in music performance at the University of Arizona, I continued my love of teaching by working as the Artistic Director of the Urban Youth Harp Ensemble for 7 years. There I taught harp lessons to hundreds of students, and tried to make music fun and accessible to everyone regardless of their background. I believe that students learn best when the teacher is able to balance hard work and discipline with joy, humor, and a caring relationship with each student.

Experience

I taught daily group and private lessons to hundreds of students in the Atlanta Public School system. We performed at prestigious events around Atlanta from the Governor's Mansion to Atlanta City Hall. Several of these students went on to earn college scholarships for their harp playing, and also attended programs such as Interlochen, Brevard, and the Young Artists Harp Seminar.
