Looking for harp lessons?
Tiffany teaches lever harp in Northeast Ohio,
or through Zoom anywhere in the world
What do I teach?
I teach absolute beginners up through intermediate lever harp players about technique, music theory, arranging for solo harp or harp and voice, Celtic repertoire, and session backing. Please note that I do not teach pedal (orchestral) harp, as that is a different instrument not in my field of expertise. As we get to know each other, we can tailor your lessons to fit you and what you want to learn. I use both learning by ear and by sheet music; both methods have their place help to make one a well-rounded musician.
Whatever your focus or musical background, I meet my students where they are.
Let's see if I can help you get where you want to be! (Ages 14 and up)
Scheduling and payment:
Currently, I do not have space for regular students, however I am still offering once-or-twice off lessons to get you started or to offer advice on a particular subject. You can schedule a lesson by contacting me here. Invoicing is done through PayPal.
I am also temporarily offering group technique lessons on my subscription site, the Mastering Celtic Music Club. Learn more here.
A note on what I need from my students:
A consistent practice time is important if you want to advance on the harp. Having regular lessons is not enough. Many adults have dreamed of learning the harp for years, but work, family obligations, and other projects mean they just can't practice for several hours every day. That's okay! You don't need to practice for hours at a time to be successful, but you DO need a consistent practice time, which may look different for every person. You can make significant progress even if all you have is 15 minutes a day, or nearly every day. If your schedule doesn't allow you any practice time, you may want to re-think lessons at this point. Please realize you may need to change something in your schedule to allow yourself this important step to progress...it will only hinder you otherwise. I'm more than willing to help you structure your practice time in a way that works for you and your progress.
I host an online student recital on Zoom once a year. Each student is asked to perform a piece they have been working on for the rest of the group. Don't worry, our recitals are a no-judgment zone - this is just an opportunity to grow by playing for others, connect with harp players around the world, and have fun!
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to meeting you soon!
