Harp Performance

Learn to play various songs on the harp with in-depth lessons from a skilled harp coach

I am a harpist at heart since the day I set my eyes on this angelic instrument at the age of 12. Every sound made is immediately comforting and soothing. My experience ranges from teaching children and adults of all backgrounds. I founded Harp4all Music Conservatory and have regular harp ensemble practices and recitals. I teach from several method books including Harp Olympics and Fun From the First. My teachers Pre collge harp at Jacob’s School of Music in Bloomington under direction of Susann McDonald, private study and masterclasses with Susann McDonald, Elizabeth Richter, Ellie Choate. Susann McDonald has strongly influenced my teaching style and performance. My students progress quickly with a strong foundation of technique and note reading/theory. I encourage students to participate in orchestra, recitals, competitions, and other adjudications. I’m a member of the American Harp Society. Other influences in my teaching have been Mary Dropkin, the former harpist of Redlands University.

About Sara C.

Hi! My name is Sara. My studio began in 2000, teaching one violin student here in Bloomington. After I moved to California I became a freelance harpist. I performed with many orchestras and performed at Capital Records for the Stan Lee Documentary “With Great Power, The Stan Lee Story”. I started my teaching studio in Riverside, California while still freelancing and earning my A.A. in Music and my Piano Performance Certificate from Riverside Community College in California. I graduated Great Distinction and was on the Dean's list. I received many piano and academic scholarships. While in college I started my studio in Riverside California teaching Piano to an autistic child. I taught him 3 times a week and made exceptional progress. I enjoyed it so much I started teaching full time in 2008 teaching piano, harp, violin, voice, guitar, flute and clarinet. Soon I had 50 students and created a 501 (c) (3) non-profit music school. My students and I perform for the public, including nursing homes. The performances are important for the students progress as well as the Piano Guild where students are adjudicated by judges in a non competitive environment. Moving back to my hometown I have met so many wonderful students! The move was a hard transition, but it introduced me to teaching online. I was sad to be leaving my students and I wanted to find a way to continue teaching them. It was alot more successful than I had thought it would be! My students have been successful and have been preparing for competitions and have completed many successful Piano Guild adjudications. I have traveled many times back to support them in their endeavors. Apart from my already established studio, I have met so many new students in remote areas who wouldn’t have access to a skilled music teacher if it wasn’t for online teaching. I am excited to meet more wonderful students!!
