”Every hidden cell is throbbing with music and life, every fiber thrilling like harp strings.”
Have you ever wanted to...
learn how to play the harp?
I believe that every student has the ability to succeed- either on a personal level, a professional level, or both. As a teacher, it is my goal to help you progress in a way that is engaging, rewarding, and fun. In lessons, I emphasize reliable practice skills and sound production through proper technique. Although I encourage a broad range of styles and love working with students on the songs or piece he/she/they may be excited about, my background is from a classical perspective and developing well- rounded musicians.
Elisabeth was the graduate teaching assistant for the beginning harp class at the University of Southern California for the academic years 2015- 2017 and 2019-2020. She was also the substitute instructor from 2018-2019 at the Freie Jugendorchesterschule Berlin (Independent Youth Orchestra School in Berlin), as well as teaching privately.

Currently accepting students of all levels ages 6+ into my studio for in- person and virtual lessons
In person lessons are taught at my location in Hermosa Beach. I'm also able to travel on a case by case basis.
If you're a beginner, you'll mostly likely be starting on a smaller lever harp rental. Your curriculum will depend on your personal goals, but will include note recognition, basic theory, musicality + expression, and will center around sound production and technique.
Lessons take place once a week. You can choose between 30 minute (ideal for younger students) or 60 minute lesson times.
