    Hello, and welcome to this post. I am a brand new harpist, and have been fascinated by the harp for YEARS. I have messed around a bit on a lever harp at my high school, but I lately have been wanting to get serious. A neighbor of mine has offered me a pedal harp, FREE! They are moving and are not able to take it with them, and have offered it to me since they have seen me at the school. Should I accept the offer? I only know of one other harpist in my general area and she lives about an hour away. What do you think?

    P.S. My neighbors don’t move for another 2-3 weeks.

    Of course, you accept it! It’s a miracle.

    Where are you located? The next step is to begin lessons.

    I am located in Rifle, CO. The closest harpists live in Grand Junction.

    Absolutely! Accept the harp graciously and with promises to give it a good home.

    I drive 70 miles once a month for harp lessons in Colorado and just figure it is one of the costs of living in a rural area.

    On the other hand, with the number of harp teachers who offer lessons via Skype on the Internet, you may be able to find someone who can teach you in your living room.

    We are all assuming it’s in good condition, which I hope it is. But yeah, accept.

    There are many good harp teachers in the Denver/Boulder area. You will be able to work out something. Someone would come out there if they can build up a class. If it is easier to get to Montana or Utah, there would be teachers there, too.

    Okay, I see where it is located, you are far from those places. There is a harp teacher in Durango named Debi Martin. She may be able to help. You can also check with Lyon Healy west in Salt Lake City for a teacher in eastern Utah.
