Learning to Play the Celtic Harp is Easier Than You Think

Have you always wanted to play the harp? Forget the excuses--You are never too old, too busy, too...whatever--You can still learn to play the Celtic harp.

The Musika Music Education Blog recently interviewed me, and it got me thinking about all those times people walk up to me while I am performing to say, "I always wanted to play the harp." My response is usually, "It's never too late. You can learn now!" And the looks on their faces are always saying to me, "You've got to be kidding. Me???" Read about my own journey learning to play the harp and discover that no, I didn't start playing as a young child, as most people assume. 

I've been playing the Celtic harp for about a gazillion years, or at least it feels like it, even though I was a young adult when I found my harp teacher (or rather, she found me). I just was in the right place at the right time to discover my teacher, Sylvia Woods

Now, in this digital age, it doesn't matter that we haven't stumbled across each other, in person, in order to take lessons. I can offer you harp lessons no matter where in the world you reside. I can teach you via Skype, Google Hangout, iChat, you name it. If you've got a webcam and a high-speed connection, you can learn. Or, you can visit me here in Northern California and take lessons from me in person.

What does it take to start learning how to play the Celtic harp?  Read these Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS) about taking harp lessons from me, and then get in touch on my website. I'd love to hear from you and help you start on your own fun harping adventures.
