Learning to Play the Harp
The harp is a unique instrument and is known for its beauty. People appreciate the sound of the harp and the skill it takes to play one. People who study music have higher self-esteem and better success in school, in developing their mind and intelligence, in society and in life. Music is a wonderful means of expression speaking what words cannot and is known for relaxation; physically, psychologically, emotionally, and spiritually. Playing the harp can lead to a rewarding career and allows you to perform for orchestras, sophisticated events, teach in schools, or provide music for a church. Harps come in different sizes along with a variety of music for each person which helps promote all ages to learn to play.

50min. Harp Lessons are $45 (given weekly). Harp Lessons are given by the hour to ensure skills and technique are taught and learned. * Students will perform an Annual Harp Recital. * Harps are available for rental at $50 per a month.
