I offer private harp lessons at my studio in the Mission area. the length of lessons being 30 or 60 minutes, starting at $30.00. If you don't already have a harp I have some available for rent.

"As a 63 year old lady who has never played an instrument and can't read music, I was thrilled when Emilie agreed to take me on as a student.
I have found it extremely easy to learn the harp under her tutelage.
Emilie is patient, supportive and brilliant at showing me how to customize my fingering technique to accommodate my unskilled hands.
Learning the harp has been a lifelong dream, and thanks to the talents of this extraordinary teacher, I am now able to say I can play the harp!
I would recommend Emilie to anyone who may have a secret dream of playing the harp but was afraid to take that first step."
