Is it hard to learn the harp? Learning the harp is no harder than learning the violin, piano, or tuba. As with mastering anything, practice is the key.
How old should my child be to start harp lessons? Harpists can be anywhere from 3 to 103. Miss Megan recommends daily practice of 30 minutes. If your child is able to focus for such a period of time, they are ready to begin, especially if they show great interest in music.
Can missed lessons be made up? Yes. Please inform Miss Megan in advance if a lesson needs to be changed. Holidays, illnesses, and vacations are a part of life.
Will there be recital opportunities? Absolutely, it’s a great way to celebrate your hard work with family and friends!
Can piano music be played on the harp? In most cases, yes. Adaptations to the music can also be made if needed.
Do I need to bring my harp to every lesson? No, Miss Megan has harps available in her studio to play on.
Can I learn my favorite song on the harp? Of course, Miss Megan encourages her students to have fun with the harp and accomplish their own goals.
How do you transport a harp? Megan has a big case fitted to the harp that she covers it with to add protection. Then she lays it flat in her car. She uses a harp dolly to wheel it around.
Do we need to have a microphone for the harp to be heard at our event? If the event is indoors and Megan is providing background music only, no microphone is necessary. If it is an indoor performance, a microphone would be wonderful. If the event is outdoors, yes, a microphone would be needed.
Is a deposit required? Yes, a deposit of $50 is required to hold the date and will be applied to the total balance due. If the event is cancelled, the full deposit will be refunded as long as Megan is given at least a week’s notice.
Will we need to provide a chair or music stand for the harp? Megan will bring her own stool and stand.
