Harp Lessons in Aurora, CO
At Neighborhood Music School, anyone can learn the harp
We believe every student is unique and different in their own way. Therefore, why should lessons be any different? Each harp lesson is tailored to the individual student’s specific interests and needs.
While focusing on foundational elements such as proper technique, reading music, finger position etc., our teachers also help students learn songs they are familiar with. This includes movie theme music, popular songs on the radio, their favorite classical artist, etc. This helps keep students motivated and pushing further to learn each week.,
Our Philosophy for Harp Lessons
Harp Lessons Should Be Fun!
We know that an interest in harp may be what first brings you into our school – but having fun is what keeps you coming back! Here at Neighborhood Music School, our goal is for every student to LOVE their music lessons as they embark on a rewarding journey of progress and discovery. We put the “fun” in fundamentals!
Our knowledgeable staff blends a high standard of music education with a creative, student-focused approach that gives students space to discover and nurture their passion for music and the harp. Whether it’s your first time at the keys or you’re a seasoned pianist, our teachers are ready to help you progress quickly toward your goals – while having fun along the way.
We Emphasize Healthy Technique
Healthy technique is critical to lifelong enjoyment of the harp. Our first priority is teaching strong fundamentals, including hand, wrist, and arm techniques. We believe that full-body instruction is essential to musicianship and safeguards students from injury.
Once the fundamentals are in place, you and your teacher can craft the story you want your music to tell. Our qualified teachers will assist you in developing musicianship and exploring nuance through dynamics, pausing, phrasing, and varying tempos. Learn with us as we infuse elements of music theory and music history into our well-rounded approach to fostering musical excellence.
We Care About Your Musical Interests
There is no one-size-fits-all method of harp instruction. Regardless of ability or prior experience, our teachers take an individualized approach to each of our students – underpinned by detailed individual assessments, a personalized learning plan, and one-on-one guidance throughout your musical journey.
While fundamentals and technique are essential, our ultimate goal is to equip students to begin exploring their own personal musical style and interests. Your teacher will work with you to understand where you want to go and craft a unique plan to get you there. Whether your style is, Neighborhood Music School helps students excel in their craft while encouraging the occasional step outside their comfort zone to try something new.
