"When I turned 80 I decided I needed to find a new challenge. I had always loved harp music so that was what I chose to try. Luckily I found a teacher, Jan Pearce, who not only taught the basics of the harp, but kept me going when I got discouraged! I was frustrated with the level of my playing and almost decided to call it a day.

 

When I told Jan that, she didn’t react except to ask ”Is that written in stone?" Of course it wasn’t and she was quick to suggest ways that would keep up my interest without such high expectations of myself. As a result, I am still going and finding much pleasure in playing. I got brave enough to ask a local Celtic group if I could practice with them and also have registered for harp camp this year. Thanks, Jan!"

 "Jan has been teaching my daughter harp for the past 4 years.  In that time, as result of Jan's teaching skill, patience and kindness, she has learned to read music and play some beautiful classical pieces.  Jan is always very encouraging and I know my daughter enjoys her weekly lessons."

~ Rebecca G.

 

"Jan is a dedicated music teacher for our three kids - she really cares. Jan has done an excellent job in helping them so far in learning both piano and the harp. We have been pleased with Jan's individualized approach to each student and enthusiasm for music. She is passionate about what she does and she has imbued our children with that same passion for music. Her enthusiasm is infectious! Thanks Jan!"
