Elizabeth Jaxon has been teaching harp since 2000, beginning in her hometown of Champaign, IL. In Paris, she developed a private studio consisting of students of all ages. She was then invited to join the faculty at the Mahidol University College of Music, in Thailand, as instructor of harp and additionally as a string chamber music coach for pre-college, undergraduate, and graduate levels. She is now based in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
Would you like to be able to play such a beautiful and alluring instrument as the harp? Treat yourself (or your child) to a rewarding adventure. There are as many reasons to study the harp as there are harp students, from unlocking your musical creativity to experiencing the instrument’s therapeutic qualities.
I have always found it enriching and rewarding to work with students. I am touched when someone shares my love of the harp enough to venture forth on the journey of learning how to play it themselves. I found that, in the course of my musical studies, I discovered many valuable lessons, not just about the harp and music, but also about myself and about the world. When I can guide people to make those discoveries for themselves, then it is one of the most satisfying feelings I know. Learning to play an instrument takes dedication and hard work from both teacher and student. I try to meet my students halfway in that process — I show the path, but I also encourage students to find things out for themselves. I believe anyone can learn, and why not? Playing the harp is fun, therapeutic, and is an endless source of beautiful music.
