Gain a strong foundation in playing the Harp and begin your musical journey with a multi-talented harpist.
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 pop, folk, classical, religious, or something else. 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 can work with each student to find music based on what they are 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!

My first lesson with Mariah went very well. I am learning the basics. Mariah is well spoken and clear. She is personable and helpful. I am excited to continue with my lessons.

Mariah is an amazing teacher! Every lesson is packed with ways to improve, creative and challenging exercises, and encouragement. You will learn techniques for practicing on your own that are both sustainable and effective. Mariah takes into account where you are and where you want to go with your harp practice. I started working with her as an absolute beginner and I've learned so much from her!
