I teach concert harp, folk harp, and singing at all levels, including to those who would like to sing with their harp. My approach is ergonomic, and my focus is elimination of pain, and maximization of comfort, facility, and speed. If you are self-taught, I can help you. My specialty is in putting performers back to work.
