"So much substance in just the first 2 lessons...I cannot just go thru without it becoming part of who I am at the harp. I am allowing the techniques you are bringing to be an integral part of how I listen, view and approach the harp.
Thank you so very much for this very Rich course" C.M. - USA

"Just wanting to say how helpful your videos are for someone who is a visual learner and wants to get the technique right." C.Q. - Australia

"I am finding these lessons very clear--both your explanations and the videos. I like the 'breaks', creating short sequences; I like the key words appearing sporadically, and seeing both hands/from both sides is also helpful...Remarkably prompt and thorough in answering any questions I had. It is clear that you sincerely want us to learn to play the harp properly and beautifully. M.D. - (USA)
