Harp Lessons

Making music

My Journey

I remember what it was like to want to play the harp so badly but not know how to make it happen. Luckily for me, I had many teachers along the way guiding me to each subsequent level. Now, it’s my turn to help you.

Why Learn To Play The Harp?

  • It helps combat neurodegeneration because learning to play the harp requires effortful learning
  • It’s every bit as beautiful and magical as it appears
  • It enhances coordination
  • It increases your memory capacity
  • It improves reading and comprehension skills (especially for children)
  • It sharpens your concentration
  • It teaches you perseverance and patience
  • It sounds good right from the start (no screechy violin sounds)!

In short, it raises your IQ while you’re having fun! And you’ll be able to say “I play the harp!”

For the child, music lessons can translate into better academic results for children. For the adult, it helps to keep the mind sharp and keeps you growing mentally. Plus, you’ll have acquired a new skill! 

About Me As a Teacher

I’ve always known that whatever I did with harp, I would also want to teach.

Even as a young adult studying various instruments, I was constantly wondering to myself, how would I teach this particular technique to someone else in future, or how can I explain this better to another person? It has been fifteen years since I began thinking this way.

 

Apart from basic skills such as being able to look at the harp without growing cross-eyed, as well as how to actually play that harp, I require that students also be open to acquiring basic theory knowledge (which I incorporate into lessons) about the music they learn. I absolutely encourage constantly challenging yourself with personal goals and always keeping a growth-mindset. Contact me if you would like to find out more or ask questions! Ask away!

What Students Are Saying

Jane Soh is a fantastic harp teacher!!  My teenage daughter, Hazel, loved learning from Jane for over 3 years.  We witnessed Jane’s amazing performances at the Harp Festival at the Boston Conservatory recently.  Jane knows professional harp techniques and practices.  Her instruction helps students understand why they must use proper techniques.  

She is flexible by choosing music that will motivate students to practice.  Jane is articulate and warm.  We highly recommend Jane as a teacher for someone who is serious about learning from the best-trained teacher.  We also recommend Jane as a teacher for someone who needs flexibility.  You will love learning from Jane Soh!
