Testimonials

I have been taking harp lessons with Angela for several years and continue to enjoy our lessons together.   Angela is extremely patient and continuously works with me in order to create realistic, attainable goals to ensure that my technique and musicality continue to grow.  Her versatility as both a performer and teacher provides her with an immense knowledge of harp repertoire, allowing me to experiment with various genres and techniques I may not have been exposed to otherwise.  Most importantly, Angela has inspired me to continue learning and loving the harp for years to come.

Angela has been a fantastic harp instructor! She brings enthusiasm and lots of encouragement to each and every class. At the beginning, we went through my lesson goals and she has been very conscientious and patient working with me to achieve them. One of my goals is to complete my grade 8 RCM exam. I feel very confident that I will be prepared for this challenge!
