Students Say

Melanie Masher is a fantastic harp teacher. I get so much out of her lessons. Her attention to detail is impressive. Her explanations are very clear and on point. She looks at my posture, the tone quality and provides feedback during the entire time. She gives me exercises and songs to improve the skills I am working on. She is also very kind and encouraging. She was recommended to me and I highly recommend her for harp lessons.
