About this pro

I love music and have been teaching harp and piano for over a decade. I teach at UNR but my private students come to my house. My mom also teaches piano and she is happy to travel to students homes. I  usually have a few harps for rent or for sale and can help you find an instrument elsewhere too.

    A wonderful teacher and so talented and a great person

  • Pam Boyd

    Marina is so patient and encouraging with both her adult and young students. Her method helps you start playing from the first lesson, even without or very little previous instrumental experience. My family has taken both harp and piano with Marina. Wether you choose harp or piano, her dedication and inherited musical talents will create a very positive experience for you.

    Marina is patient and makes lessons fun for our 9 year old daughter. She has come so far in the 9 months since she started and really enjoys it. I am ever so grateful we found Marina!


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First meeting is usually free with the goal of getting acquainted and familiar with the studio procedures. Then I tailor the learning process to the goals we set. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Masters in harp performance and performer diploma from Indiana University 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

30 min or full hour lessons are typical. Students pay at the beginning of the month for their usual lessons amount. 

How did you get started teaching?

Got the position at UNR and the orchestra in 2007

What types of students have you worked with?

All levels all ages. Rarely take anyone younger than 5.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Every spring I put together a big harp production in Nightingale Concert Hall, at UNR, called Harp Plus. Many of my students and local harpists participate in the large ensemble pieces and it bring everyone together.  The most harps we’ve had plaiying together is 27! Always lots of fun. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Meet the teacher and get to know eachother. Find out the studio policies and procedures and also what activities the teacher or studio offers outside of lessons. For instance I offer two studio recitals every year and multiple master classes (performance practice in a group setting). 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What do they want to achieve? How much time are they intending to put in outside of their lesson time.
