Availability: Willing to teach during both weekdays and weekends.
Willing to travel: 15 miles
Experience: I have been teaching several subjects as a private during the last six years, and harp from the last four. Have been working for two years in the music school CEM Maria Grever, both as a harp and aural teacher.
Also, I have been giving private spanish and catalan lessons during the last two years.
All roads lead to Rome...! And every student is different. As humans, we all have distinct qualities that make us unique (both mentally and physically wise) hence, while my teaching method is strongly based in harp technique, it tends to mutate and adapt to every student. I honestly do not believe I have ever taught a piece or a scale the same way twice, since everyone has their particular way to overcome difficulties (even if they do not know theirs yet and I have to help them find out), their individual and irrepetible musical talents, different ways to analyse what their eyes see on the paper, and even a personal way to understand a simple dynamic.
Feedback For Anna (3)
Very good and easy to deal with and very flexible.
Anna was very communicative and welcomed my daughter and myself for a trial harp lesson. Anna was very kind and patient with my daughter and taught her to play a short piece of music on the harp using both hands. I would recommend Anna to teach beginners how to play the harp.
Anna is a nice and patient tutor who is always nice to me. As a new beginner, her instruction has made me improve a lot and she is always willing to answer my questions all the time. Frankly speaking, she is both a tutor and a friend who helps me so much. She gives me confidence and make me love harp more. Besides, her professional skills impressed me so much.
