Lydia was wonderful! We had trouble getting a camera working first time, she was so patient. Building on the music base my daughter already had, she quickly zeroed in on what my daughter needs to work on. She looks forward to the next lesson. 😀

I teach harp lessons to students of all ages. I believe in positive encouragement, goal-setting, and a balance of technical discipline and fun! I have nearly 15 years of experience teaching all skill levels, and 7 of those years were spent as a full-time harp instructor teachings hundreds of students in Atlanta Public School system. I would love to meet you and help you discover the joy and confidence that comes from playing beautiful music. I am always happy to help students get started on the harp and will guide you through every facet of renting/purchasing an instrument.

About Carolyn
Sharing my love of music and teaching others is my passion. I began teaching piano and harp lessons when I was in high school. After earning two degrees in music performance at the University of Arizona, I continued my love of teaching by working as the Artistic Director of the Urban Youth Harp Ensemble for 7 years. There I taught harp lessons to hundreds of students, and tried to make music fun and accessible to everyone regardless of their background. I believe that students learn best when the teacher is able to balance hard work and discipline with joy, humor, and a caring relationship with each student.

I earned my harp performance degree from the Lamont School of Music at the University of Denver.

About Becca
I am a friendly, outgoing, and passionate music teacher! I play the harp and piano and absolutely love to spread the joy of music.

I completed my degree in Harp Performance from University of Denver's Lamont School of Music where I received a well-rounded education in both performance and academics (including theory, history, and technology). Please let me know if you have any questions- can't wait to get started!

As a music teacher of over 10 years I take a fun but structured approach to learning the harp. I've taught all ages and I individually work with each student to help them learn the music that they want to and reach the goals that they set for themselves. I also have a large emphasis on hand position and help my students have the very best technique so they can play their very best. We will typically start with exercises and technique and then move to music. I will then send written individual feedback after the lesson to help remind the student of what we are working on. I hope to have the chance to share my love of music with you!

About Jill
I am a harpist, pianist, arranger, composer, performer and lover of music. With over 12 years of experience teaching both piano and harp lessons. Although I graduated from Brigham Young University in Idaho with a Bachelors in visual communication, I have continued to stretch my skills as musician and teacher.

I perform frequently and love sharing my passion for the harp and piano through teaching so others can also experience having these beautiful instruments in their lives.

I teach piano and harp students of all different ages and experience levels, although I have an especially great love for teaching children and youth. I studied classical piano for over 12 years, and classic harp for over 11 years. A huge part of my music education was focused on theory and as a result I have a great love of having a strong foundation in musica
l theory.

I strive to help my students develop a love music that can last throughout their entire life while still learning proper technique and theory. I try to help students set individual goals and then structure lessons to help these students reach each of their dreams.

Practicing can be hard for any student, but playing music you enjoy can help you stick with it. To inspire my students, I find or arrange music they both enjoy and that will help them progress. I've found that this not only motivates students but also adds an extra fun aspect to our lessons and practices.

My passion is sharing my love of music with those around me. Schedule your first harp lesson with me today!

I highly reccommend Jill! She has taught my seven year old daughter online for the past 4 months. My daughter is an absolute beginner, however, is quickly progressing through the curriculum. Jill keeps the lessons & activities fun, and engaing. She is a fantastic teacher, encouraging and oozing with positivity. Choosing Jill as our harp instructor has been the best decision for us. Give her a try; you won't regret it!

Jill is an engaging teacher for my 11-year-old daughter. My daughter has had harp lessons before, but Jill's energetic personality and enthusiasm has rekindled her interest in playing. Jill is organized and an effective communicator. We have appreciated that practice goals between lessons are clearly outlined at the end of each lesson.

I believe lessons should be fun and expansive journeys. I enjoy truly connecting with each student in a light, enjoyable atmosphere. Lessons are tailored to meet each student where they are at, while still pushing them at a rate that inspires them. Positive reinforcement and constructive feedback are always used, while negative criticism is not. I specialize in teaching proper harp technique designed to allow the player to play for a lifetime! If pain arises from playing students will never be asked to push through pain or discomfort. Rather, we will find a different approach that works. Lastly, I love working with students on pieces they really love. No piece of music is off limits! We can make any song work on the harp!

About Pheobe
Hello there, and thank you so much for considering me as a potential teacher! I truly love teaching and so enjoy connecting with each and every student.

I have been playing the harp since age six. While I am primarily a classical pedal harpist, I also love to play jazz, pop, folk, and contemporary music. I love teaching all of these styles as well, and students may choose to play either the lever harp or the pedal harp.

I have been blessed to have studied with some incredible teachers. Studying Salzedo Technique with Cynthia Otis, herself a former student of Carlos Salzedo, allowed me to develop strong and stable harp technique. I went on to study both jazz and classical with Felice Pomeranz at Berklee College of Music. From these experiences, I have developed a style of teaching that focuses strongly on technique while incorpora
ting styles and pieces tailored to each individual student’s musical taste and goals.

Currently, I am completing a certification in Clinical Musicianship. I am thrilled to be learning about the endless healing components of harp music. I believe that music should be a source of joy, a belief that is ever present throughout her lessons.

Harp students in their lessons may expect to learn the following:
-Fingering/Technique
-Proper dynamics
-Rhythmic structure
-Phrasing
-Overcoming stage fright
-Performance Techniques
-Career Tips
-Care for the harp (Cleaning, changing strings, tuning, etc.)
-Orchestral Training

About Joanna
I am a professional piano/harp performer, composer, collaborative artist, and teacher. I have been performing on the piano for 14 years and the harp for 12 years. Currently, I am studying music (piano emphasis) at The Crown College outside of Knoxville, Tennessee.

I have 3 years of teaching experience and truly enjoy it. My students are expected to log in an adequate amount of hours based on their level. I teach mainly classical and sacred genres. My emphasis begins with a solid classical foundation and the students may build off to other genres if they wish to do so. I am comfortable teaching students of all grades.

My goals for students include: excellence in performance, sight-reading, and knowledge of phrasing, harmonies, and rhythmic structure; a love and passion for music; a foundation that will launch their career/hobby.

I have performed in many concerts, competitions, weddings, and charity benefits across the US and will soon perform worldwide. An opportunity I had last semester included performing as the main harpist/pianist for The Crown College Orchestra. Later this year, I will be participating in the Master Players Series in Delaware.

My passion is to help cultivate a love for classical/sacred music. I hope to instill that love in my students as they learn.

I make sure to create a custom lesson plan, tailored to each individual student's level and learning style. I share my knowledge from my own education at The Juilliard School and the Yale School of Music, as well as practical advice from on the job, musician experience in orchestras, chamber music settings, recitals, competitions, and other collaborative projects.

About Margaret
Hi Friends,

Thanks for viewing my TakeLessons profile! I am a professional harpist with a Bachelor of Harp degree from Juilliard, and a Master of Music degree from the Yale School of Music. Since finishing school, I've worked as a harpist performing a range of genres in New York City, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Washington DC, New Jersey, Seattle, New Hampshire, and now, Texas. My training is in classical harp, but I spend a lot of time playing recording jazz and pop music as well. Being a versatile musician is important both for musical growth and development, and also for diverse career opportunities.

Teaching harp lessons is one of my favorite things; it's extremely rewarding to notice expansion in a student's skillset and practical knowledge. My harp teachers at Juilliard and Yale are very important to me, and I frequently relay th
eir sentiments to my students. I always try to be aware of my students' interests and other activities/obligations, and tailor a lesson plan based on how much time they are able to devote to practicing, what repertoire would develop their technique and musical abilities, and, of course, what repertoire interests and appeals to them. I also discuss music theory and tips and tricks for orchestra, chamber music, and other performance opportunities at length in my lessons. I'm comfortable with concert, competition, and audition prep, and apply my experience in all of those areas.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns. I look forward to speaking with you!

My 10 year old daughter studied with Margaret this year. Margaret is unfailingly patient and encouraging. She has a wealth of knowledge about music theory, and conveys the information in a way that makes it seem easy. She was great about tailoring the lessons to fit my daughter’s interests, strengths, and needs.

I took harp lessons with Margaret for 3 years and would have continued if I hadn't relocated to a different city. Margaret helped me drastically improve my technique with etudes and advice. She is great at explaining what changes need to be made to achieve a more accurate technique, and her musical suggestions really changed the way I think about preparing pieces and took my performance skills to a new level. She's honest, clear, and really fun to work with. I always looked forward to our lessons because she has a way of making even tricky, difficult pieces fun to work on.
