Tuning your harp

Lever harp students may skip to 4:10 in the video and use their iStrobosoft app instead of the tuner in the video.

Emily loves teaching harp students of all ages and abilities. She uses the traditional (note-reading) method of teaching. She has a strong interest in music theory and technique. 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?
