From 20+ years of music teaching, I developed The Harp Ecosystem. It is my ultimate vision for getting results for harpists. Because of these outstanding results, the Harp Ecosystem is the only way I teach now.
When people ask me if I teach 1-1, the answer is yes, absolutely! And our 1-1 lessons are even better now, as they happen within the context of the Harp Ecosystem.
10 months into launch, every Harp Ecosystem harpist has surpassed their goals, which were high to begin with (that’s what I encourage!)
Even though we know more about teaching and learning music than ever before, the vast majority of harpists I meet are deeply unhappy and anxious about their playing. And it might surprise you to know this is true whether they are beginners or professionals.
They feel they should be further along. That they haven’t completed enough pieces. And probably the most painful one, that they can’t express what they hear and feel in their heart and soul, that their life work is not manifesting. Secretly they fear they might have no talent or have “lost it.”
The Harp Ecosystem addresses all of these problems quickly, kindly and joyfully. We’re super practical, and at the same time laser focused on our deepest reasons for making music. We get it that in order to play with heart and soul we have to speak to the heart and soul, in addition to using proven practical strategies. We walk between both worlds!
A complete learning system & community:
If you long to truly advance your harp playing, your artistry, your career, this powerful program is for you:
As harpists, one of the most dangerous problems we face in our musical progress is isolation:
Isolation brings many unwanted results; lack of motivation to practice, getting stuck in a rut creatively, getting off track between lessons, practicing in a haphazard fashion, or learning a technique the wrong way causing us to actually go backwards!
Another serious problem is not enough time to focus on our music. We feel bad about our progress, confused about what to spend our little time on, and guilty about not making the most of our lessons. This crushes our motivation and creativity.
The third – possibly the most serious – problem is lack of information and community. As solo instrumentalists, harpists often get stuck in the past regarding learning, performing, negative mindsets, technology, business practices, and collaborations. At the Harp Ecosystem we address all of these and move out into our communities with big, fresh presence.
These problems are why I created the Harp Ecosystem for dedicated harpists.
Modeled on 3 pillars:
This has been such a rewarding experience, and the support and friendships I’ve found with all of you has been immeasurable. The Harp Ecosystem helped me to find my musical voice, clarify my harp goals, build a community of like-minded musicians, and explore the soul of music (along with technique!) Just to put a face to some of the growth that I’ve experienced, I’ve created a 39 minute CD (25 minutes of my own improv, something I had never even really contemplated until three months ago), I’m providing harp for a Reiki CD, and built my harp website. So I’m thrilled! Katy, Chico CA
I’ve found amazing support, inspiration, and encouragement because of the Harp Ecosystem. As a comparatively new harpist, I thought I would be left behind in the dust, but instead I have found wonderful friends and mentors as we share our music, our hopes, and our fears. Being able to get advice immediately on technique as problems occur is such a help! Adele, Berkeley CA
My life and my harp life has expanded greatly because of our connection. To be witnessed and to witness other people working through their harp journey, struggles, triumphs, and questions and then to be supported and to support has been a true gift. In the safety of a small group to be exposed in loving eyes, ears and response has been a warm blanket and a pillow of ease. Wendolyn, Fairfax CA
