Enjoy the Captivating Beauty of the Harp with Private, Group & Ensemble Celtic Harp Instruction - Weekly Lessons

Instructor Laura Gibson began her musical journey at the age of 8 when her grandmother, a graduate of the Peabody Conservatory, started teaching her the piano. Laura's love of music continued as she studied additional musical instruments such as the harp, organ, harpsichord, bowed psaltery, ney, and numerous other instruments from instructors around the world. She went on to college to study music performance, fine art, and floral design.
She graduated Summa Cum Laude with a President's Academic Excellence Award, Wasyl Palijczuk Art Award, and M. Louise Shipley Outstanding Graduating Senior Art Major Award. To continue her love and knowledge of the harp, Laura has studied under leading internationally recognized harpers from Scotland and Ireland including Grainne Hambly, William Jackson, Corrina Hewat, and Cheyenne Brown.
