Learning to play the harp
can be a rewarding experience at any age. Sarah Stuart is an experienced
teacher that has taught students ages 6 to 86. She has students who
play the harp as an extra-curricular activity, others play for relaxation
and some play for therapy. The harp is a beautiful instrument to learn
and it is rewarding right from the beginning. It does not take a long
time to produce a pretty sound on the harp. The challenge lies in
learning to play it well with proper technique.
Sarah Stuart has a
flexible innovative approach to teaching; she will create a lesson and
study schedule to help you achieve your personal goals. She is
experienced at teaching both beginning and advanced students, private and
group lessons. Her lessons incorporate classical, folk, Celtic and pop
genres depending on students' interests. All lessons emphasize solid Salzedo technique, theory skills and ear training.
Sarah began teaching
while she was a student at the Oberlin Conservatory. She taught lessons
to non-harp majors at the Oberlin Conservatory under the supervised
teaching program organized by Alice Chalifoux. Subsequently, Sarah taught
at Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp.
Sarah teaches in her
