I welcome adults and children who are new to the harp or who want to increase their skills. As a teacher, I focus on helping students be able to play the music that is interesting or fun for them. I will start with a firm background on the basics of hand position and reading music, and then we can take it away with what thrills you, whether it is improvisation, pop music, or classical. I hope we can take this journey in music together!

About Mariah H.

I am a harpist and a scientist. At Brigham Young University, I minored in music, emphasizing in harp, while earning a geology degree. I also performed in the BYU Harp Ensemble. The formal training in harp at BYU gave me good footing in the basics of harp, complimenting my analytical bent on music. I love combining these foundations and analytical sense with my shear love of harp and music. I enjoy teaching, performing, improvising, arranging, and even dabbling in therapeutic music.

I have been playing harp for 7 years. Having begun playing as an adult, I am acutely aware of the challenges of beginning a new instrument, as well as the sense of fulfillment of playing a piece you personally love. Accordingly, I work to understand my students own experience and help them overcome challenges they encounter. I am also eager to find or arrange music based on exactly what each student is interested in. I teach both pedal and lever harp. For students in northeastern PA, I have lever harps available for rent so you can try it out before buying your own harp.

Becoming a harpist is a dream come true for me, and I am excited to help your dream come true, so book your first lesson with me today!

Mariah is amazing to work with and so passionate on the harp. She also has a few harps available to rent at an extremely low price, so if not having a harp is getting in the way of you learning possibly the most beautiful instrument in the world, Mariah would be a great option for you.
