This is the first time that I am taking harp lessons online, and I had a very pleasant experience. Lydia is very kind and gentle and patient, and I really appreciate that in a teacher. I am very much looking forward to future lessons with Lydia and learning to play the harp well through her years of experience.
For my very first lesson on my harpI. Lydia was excellent! She was very patient, knowledgeable, and helpful in teaching me the very basics. I look forward to future lessons.
