Harp Tuesday and Skype Lessons


In November of 2010 I started a bi-weekly video series on YouTube all about playing the harp.  Topics I've covered range from "your first harp lesson" to in-depth looks at recital repertoire.  I have a blast doing it, and I invite you to take a look at the archive.

Doing the Harp Tuesday series has led to teaching lessons over the internet via Skype, which is great fun.  It can sometimes be hard to find a harp teacher in your area, and Skype lessons solve that problem!  If you're interested please visit my lessons page.
