About Eleonora P.

Eleonora is a professional harpist based in the Bay Area.
She was born in Florence (Italy), where at the age of nine began studying the harp. Eleonora went on to earn a Bachelors in harp from the Conservatory of music in Florence and a Masters in harp from Conservatory of music in Parma.
From 2011 to 2017 she performed with the Orchestra of the Royal Northern College of Music of Manchester.

For the past ten years Eleonora has been teaching classical and celtic harp to children and adults.

In 2015 Eleonora completed her training to become a certified Music learning theory teacher. This approach focuses on the belief that music is like a language and therefore in order to become fluent children should be immersed in it early on.

Eleonora teaches private harp lessons to beginners, intermediate and advanced students in San Francisco; she's also available for house calls (depending on location).
All ages are welcome.

My daughter loves to play with teacher Eleonora. She’s been practicing with her since the past two years and cannot be happier as for results and focus. Eleonora is very patient, attentive, professional and with a fun approach that makes kids at ease and get ready to play.

Eleanora is a patient, kind, warm, and very professional teacher. She is everything you could possible hope for. She adjusted her pace to meet my schedule and kept me on track with a firm but gentle approach. She has reaffirmed my love for music and taught me things (such as improvisation) which I never imagined I could do. In just a few lessons, I feel like I have come so far with Eleanora!

Eleanor is professional, but also someone I can really relax with. She is calm, patient and really knows what she is doing. My goals for playing harp music are not standard, and she instantly adapted and stepped in just where I wanted to be with my instruction.

I chose Eleonora as my 11-year-old daughter's harp instructor, and we've been really pleased and enriched by the experience. Early on, my daughter experienced an affinity for this instrument, and I've been very impressed by Eleonora's technique and teaching style and how she helps cultivate my daughter's organic joy and interest in this beautiful instrument. Eleonora is excellent with children, explaining music ideas in a way a child can understand, digest, and incorporate. She meets my daughter where ever is needed and has a great sense for this. When my daughter was learning something new, she told Eleonora, "This is hard." Eleonora responded casually and authoritatively: "There is no hard, only new." This, and the emphasis on practice, really eased my daughter who likes to get everything right the first time and needs this kind of reframing and encouragement when experiencing a new challenge. As an artist myself, I really appreciate this approach and philosophy, but most importantly, I can see my daughter does, too. Whether you're an adult learning for the first time or you have a child who has interest, let your musical lives be enriched by this patient, knowledgeable instructor.

I’ve been one of Eleonora’s first students and I’ve studied harp with her for 4 years. It has been very rewarding.
I was always looking forward to her lessons: she inspired us to practice for competitions and she always encouraged me to play in front of an audience, giving the very best of my self.
Playing the harp has always been a great joy for me thanks to her lessons.

We met Eleonora because my daughter wanted to learn how to play the harp. As a mother, I was pretty curious to see how Eleonora could manage to teach to a 4 years old how to read music notes and learn how to play the harp. With lots of patience and passion Eleonora created different solutions and succeeded in her goal. I was very surprised to see that after only two lessons my daughter was able to recognize several notes, after her third class she was able to play a short tune. It is thanks to Eleonora 's skills and passion that today my daughter plays the harp with great joy and is always excited about learning new things. Thank you Eleonora for making Carlotta' s dream come true!

I’ve studied harp with teacher Eleonora for five years.
She’s a very knowledgeable and patient person as well as kind and available.
She has a great teaching method. The most important thing: she puts energy and passion in every thing she does.
She’s the best harp teacher I could ever have!

Eleonora is a well-rounded professional harpist, always helpful and kind.
Thanks to her thorough preparation (always updated with the latest teaching methods) I was able to approach the harp in the best way and with great results.
I highly recommend her!

My daughter Giulia has been playing the harp for five years. Her teacher Eleonora Pellegrini taught her how to love the harp and music in general.
Harp lessons have been a great experience for Giulia thanks to Eleonora’s patience and kindness.
Now Eleonora moved to California and for us this was a huge loss.

My daughter Ambra and all of my family discovered the harp thanks to Eleonora. She is a capable, patient and passionate teacher. During her lessons, she's able to communicate to her students the passion for music and for the harp which is an extraordinary instrument.
My daughter was 7 years old when she began taking lessons with Eleonora and she is still playing with great passion after 5 years. For us it is a joy to hear her playing. Thank you, Eleonora!

Eleonara is excellent! Very clear and detailed. She is patient and very positive and supportive and has a variety of little tricks to make things clear.
As a retired teacher and a musician , it was easy to spot her skills and qualities.

Eleonora is an extremely talented musician and harpist. She is very patient and caring to her students. She tailors lessons to fit the students needs, which I personally found it amazing!!! Harp was not very easy for me to learn and I took a very long time to learn my pieces, but with Eleonora’s guidance I was able to learn them in the end. Thanks to her positive and encouraging teaching style, harp lessons were always enjoyable. I would highly recommend Eleonora…you will not regret to take her lessons!!

Expert in translating concepts though metaphor and turning into easy things that might seem impossible at first sight.
She passionately plays and teaches the harp. She’s able to comunicate this passion to her students by inviting them to partecipate to harp festivals and competitions. 
Eleonora Pellegrini is a guarantee!
