Harp · In home

Liza is a wonderful and dedicated teacher. She his young, smart, patient and it is abvious to us that she cares and loves teaching harp. In the last few years, my daughter have had several teachers through out her piano and harp lessons, and I never seen her so excited before and after the her music lesson. She has been inspired and highly motivated from the first moment that she met Liza.
