KL Music Studio
Is it hard to play the harp? That’s usually the first question people ask. My answer? Not at all! I teach the harp in three easy steps: Speak, Read, Write. "Speaking" music simply means learning to listen and play your harp. We learn tunes by ear to start, just like you would if you were learning a language. Reading and Writing are what allow you to pick up your favorite piece of music and learn it on your own, just like reading a book. Whether you want to play in a concert hall or in your living room, I will give you the knowledge and technique to help you make the harp a part of your life.
I want to help my harp students learn the Celtic harp with no fuss, no stress, and no pain - just good tunes and good times! I firmly believe that music works best when integrated into the everyday, rather than becoming yet another thing on that ever-growing 'to-do' list. I work with students to make music a part of their lives, even with minimal practice time. As I always say, 5 minutes of playing each day is better than 30 minutes one day.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Hi there! My name is Kathryn and I'm a professional singer, Celtic harpist, and educator. I love all animals (especially dogs), and baking goodies for my friends, family, and students. Over the past ten years I’ve helped hundreds of students reach their goals and fulfill their dreams of singing, playing the Celtic harp, and making music their own! I hold an MM in Voice, summa cum laude, from UCLA's Herb Alpert School of Music, and a BA in Music, magna cum laude, from Luther College with minors in English and Education. My training in education includes Orff, Kodaly, and Dalcroze methods, as well as Alexander Technique. As a singer and harpist I have performed around the United States and the UK, including at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
