Her students perform in recitals twice a year and, once comfortable, she helps them pursue additional performance opportunities.


Emily has limited openings for new harp students.

Q: What if I don't want to buy a harp immediately. Can I rent?

A: Yes, Emily has a couple student harps she rents out. If they are unavailable she can give you suggestions of other places to check for rental availability.

Q: I want to start my child on harp lessons. When is a good age to start?
