Hi everyone. I got a Lyon and Healy Ogden about two weeks ago and I love it and have been practicing a lot. I live in Pittsburgh, PA and I’m currently going to what seems to be the only harp teacher in the area (only other ones listed on registries have moved away or are not actually based in Pittsburgh), but it is not working out very well so far. We don’t really seem to click or understand what each other are saying, and she tends to not tune any of her harps before our lessons which is pretty annoying.
Chris, in case you know someone who has membership in American Harp Society, ask to look briefly in Pennsylvania and you will find at least eight harp teachers in Pittsburgh. I can’t list these contacts in a public forum but you could click on my underlined name above,

It takes a teacher who is flexible and willing to acknowledge the students competence. So the communication style needs to be cooperative, the goals clear and gradually progressive. You might try communicating with your current teacher about what you are needing
