I love giving harp lessons to students of all skill levels, young or old, learning on a pedal or lever harp and find pleasure in hearing that my students “hug their harp because they love it so much!” I teach the traditional harp method with a fun emphasis in music theory and history when applicable. Excellent performance and memorization techniques are also incorporated into lessons to ensure the highest quality of playing.
Harp rentals are currently available to help get you started. Please contact me for further information about harp lessons. Not in Eastern Oregon or in the Burns, Hines, or Harney County area? Ask me about lessons via Skype!

What Megan’s students say about harp lessons:
Fear doesn’t adequately describe the feeling of committing to learning something entirely new at age 65! I never had a music lesson of any kind so deciding to learn to play the harp was like trying to fly despite not having any wings. Luckily I found Megan…not only a wonderful harpist and teacher but quite possibly an “angel” in disguise. Although I feel that I am very much “in process” I found that I can make music even as a late-bloomer! It’s a miracle!
I wish everyone could take harp lessons from Megan! Megan is unendingly patient and positive. She really knows her stuff and shares it in a gentle, caring manner. I want to be Megan when I grow up! She has helped me fulfill a decades old dream!

The biggest personal obstacle to taking harp lessons was the unknown! Where does one find a harp? I didn’t know how to look for a teacher or if I could afford the harp or the lessons. It was hearing Megan play at church that got me thinking that maybe it was possible for me to learn. When I began harp lessons it was incredibly enjoyable and not as difficult to understand as I had thought it might be and the cost of lessons was also very manageable.
Megan is very patient and very clear in her teaching method. She always puts me at ease and is never overly-critical. Her knowledge and musicality are so wonderful.
I would definitely recommend others take lessons from Megan. I feel she can teach all ages and levels, not just beginners. Megan has helped me learn to love the harp and love playing it. I feel that is one of the main jobs of a teacher—instilling the love of the instrument and love for music.
