Harp Teachers

Whether you hope to make a career of the harp or decide only ever to play it in the privacy of your home, we recommend you have lessons. 


Teachers can help with:  

- how to place your fingers on the strings!  Sounds simple, but incorrect technique severely restricts one's ability and enjoyment of the harp.

- Determining and attaining your goals.  There are so many choices with the harp in terms of types of harp, style of music, and performance outlets

- care of the harp

- access to harp music

- motivation and goal-setting

- arranging music for the harp

- networking
