Sylvia welcomes all students in her private studio in Lovettsville, VA and at the Community Music School of the Piedmont in Upperville, VA (harp is taught at the satellite location in Purcellville). Prior musical training is not required.
A mother of seven children, Sylvia enjoys teaching students of all ages. Adult students are welcome too. If you have "always wanted to play the harp", Sylvia would love to teach you.
Sylvia's students have opportunities to play in harp ensembles and small instrumental ensembles. She has several students who participate in the “Strings Program” in Loudoun County schools.
Every November Sylvia presents her students in an annual recital at the beautiful historic Waterford School in Waterford, VA. Her students also have opportunities throughout the year to play in recitals at the Community Music School of the Piedmont in Upperville.
Sylvia is a member of the American Harp Society, International Society of Folk Harpers and Craftsmen, Loudoun Arts Council, Music Teachers National Association, Northern Virginia Music Teachers Association, the American String Teachers Association, and the Virginia String Teachers Association.
