Learning an instrument is rewarding, challenging, and amazing. The harp is a great instrument to learn because of its uniqueness and diverse musical capacity.
I love teaching and welcome pupils of all ages, with or without previous musical training! I teach both lever and pedal harp, and in my studio I have one concert grand extended pedal harp, one mid-sized lever harp, and one small lap harp.
A harp of your own is essential for practice outside of lessons. You can purchase new or used harps, or rent a harp.
Purchasing routes for Utah residents include Lyon & Healy in Salt Lake City, Summerhayes Music in Murray, or used options such as KSL CLassifieds.
You can also rent harps through Lyon & Healy, Harps Etc, and The Harp Connection.
Lessons are held once every week, and payment is due at the beginning of the month. Lessons can be 30 minutes or one hour long. 30-minute lessons are advisable mostly for younger students.
Recitals are held twice a year and are welcome for students of any skill level to participate in. This is a fun way for students to showcase their hard work and build their confidence performing in front of others! Group lessons and other extra activities, such as service opportunities and workshops, are also incorporated throughout the year.
In my teaching I emphasize musicality and expression while staying relaxed and in control of both your body and the instrument, achieved by proper technique to prevent tension or injury. Along with learning pieces, students will become well-rounded musicians by also working on music theory, scales and arpeggios, technical exercises, orchestral excerpts, music history relevant to their current pieces, and confidence with performing.
