With over 15 years experience, I offer individualized harp lessons on lever or pedal harp to all ages. I focus on starting where the student is and where s/he wants to be, and design a course of lessons based on the student's goals. I love sharing the sound of the harp with others, and especially enjoy helping others learn to play.

About Cheryl G.

I love playing and teaching the harp, and I can help you reach your dream of playing the harp as well. I have played my harp for many events including weddings, memorials, Christmas parties and religious services, both solo and with other instruments and voices. I have been teaching harp students for over fifteen years.
I can help you progress at any skill level, whether you are an absolute beginner to music, already have some musical knowledge and experience, or are an experienced harper who wants to polish your skills. I am flexible in curriculum, methods, and styles of music taught; I tailor the lessons to meet your goals. I teach to the requirements from the American String Teachers Association String Syllabus if you desire a progressive structured music program. As a teacher, I will communicate with both parents and students about what each student needs to progress. I will listen to your thoughts, concerns and ideas, and am always striving to improve my teaching.

As an adult learner I have appreciated Cheryl’s approach to learning the harp. She has always made my learning to be about having fun and enjoying the beautiful music even a beginner is capable of making. There is never pressure to be “perfect” and the utmost patience with learning.
I appreciate her flexibility with scheduling my lessons and willingness to change the dates due to life’s unexpected circumstances.
Learning the harp is about personal enjoyment and sharing the love of a harp with family and friends.
I highly recommend Cheryl!

Private lessons

I have given private harp lessons to children and adults since 2004. I focus on technique, ability to read and interpret music, and exercises for improved agility and individual finger strength. I encourage students to play with other musicians and sponsor beginning harper circles several times a year.

Affiliations

International Society of Folk Harpers and Craftsmen
Jun 2007
Founded by Roland L. Robinson, a harpmaker in Mt. Laguna, California, the International Society of Folk Harpers and Craftsmen (ISFHC) was intended to meet the needs of the individual folk harper and builder for communication with his or her fellow artists. It began in 1980 out of the readership of the Folk Harp Journal and in 1985 it became a California nonprofit corporation. Today, with a yearly membership of almost sixteen hundred, it provides a focus for folk harp activities worldwide.
