I design, build and perform with the Folk Harp (ie: Celtic Harp), which is a smaller harp, usually with no pedals.

Tom is very patient with younger students that get distracted easily. One of my children is very interested in learning Irish folk music and Tom is great about helping him explore his interests in music. I love having lessons in home. It's very convient and allows me to keep my toddler entertained while my other children are doing lessons. Lessons are also affordable. I would definitely recommend Tom!

Liza is extremely flexible and patient. She has tailored each lesson to my specific needs and has given me tools I needed to make me a better harp player. She chooses pieces that challenge me and has allowed me to chose from several different pieces/styles that I would enjoy learning, too. If I had to miss a lesson for some reason she went above-and-beyond to accommodate a make-up lesson. She has always been very encouraging and I have loved having her has my harp teacher! --Olivia (14 years old)

I'm a professional harpist who graduated from Yale University with a B.A. in Music with extensive teaching experience in the United States and Belgium. I am offering harp lessons to students of all backgrounds, levels, and ages.

I am currently in the process of completing my Doctor of Musical Arts at the CUNY Graduate Center. I hope to transfer the skills and knowledge I have obtained from working with some of the most renowned harpists to my own students.

Teaching is a passion for me. Whether you are just taking lessons for fun, or whether you are serious about creating a future professional career, I will be equally attentive to your needs. I like to ensure that my students progress during the lesson, but not at the expense of having fun! I believe that a relaxed atmosphere is essential to the learning experience.

I had the benefit of taking lessons from Chelsea after I had been learning to play for a bit over a year. She was both encouraging and warm personally, and gave me several ways to think about technique, which helped a great deal. She was able to give me insights to help me get into music theory, as well as technique and practical questions, all so valuable for a beginner!

About Joanna W.

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.

As a forever learner, I understand students do best in an atmosphere that brings out their creativity and passion. I will do my best to create a space for students of all ages to feel comfortable (especially when it comes to asking questions and trying new things).

Although I have a number of workbooks for students to chose from, I am happy to cater to the preferences of every unique individual; I like the idea of learning together. Whether you want to use the harp to play Minuet, Careless Whisper, or anything in between, I am eager to help students perfect their understanding in an enjoyable way.

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.
