My harp curriculum consists of a comprehensive plan tailored to the needs of each student, including technical exercises, graduated solos, harp ensemble, performance practice, music theory, and harp history. Orchestra training, and audition and competition preparation are available for advanced students. I have a limited number of rental harps available, and can also provide guidance in renting or purchasing an instrument. I believe that everyone can learn the harp if given the right tools.
