New Students

Thinking about playing the harp? It sounds fabulous from the very first day you play. The harp is capable of producing a wide variety of sounds and you can enjoy playing music in nearly any style. Learning the harp exercises your mind! Students will learn valuable skills that will influence academic pursuits, including focus, discipline and problem solving.

Leigh hopes to inspire musical creativity, a love of music making and the harp. Through individually tailored lessons, students learn harp technique, listening skills, music theory, history, and explore composition and improvisation.

All of Leigh’s students are encouraged to play regularly in recitals, master classes, your own community, and with the North Carolina Harp Ensemble.




How do I get started? Before committing to lessons, Leigh invites each prospective student for a forty-five minute intro lesson. This is an opportunity to play and see the harps up close, meet Leigh and learn more about the studio. Intro lesson is $35.

Where do you teach? Leigh teaches from her studio in Carrboro, NC. Completed March 2018!

How much are lessons? One hour lessons are $55 and forty-five minute lessons are $45 each and meet weekly.

Do you teach adults? Yes! I have students of all ages in my studio and experience teaching kids, adolescents, young adults and retirees. 

How do I get a harp? Leigh rents harps to her students starting at $50 per month. If you prefer to own, Leigh can help you purchase a used or new harp.
