Even if you don't live in the Santa Barbara area you can still take lessons via FaceTime or Skype. If you are a beginner it will be best for you to see a local teacher in person but if you have some experience and would like some coaching from me, lessons via computer or iPad can be scheduled.
Beginners often choose to rent a harp for several months before deciding how seriously they wish to pursue their studies and what type of instrument to purchase. Please inquire about the availability of rental harps.
