Introduction: Take lessons in person or online from award-winning harpist Anne Roos! I'll help you along on your harp adventures! I have some 30 years of teaching experience, and I would love to help you get started in learning to play the harp, or help you continue along in your harp adventures if you have previous lessons and experience. You can now take lessons from me no matter where you live in the world - via Zoom, Skype, and FaceTime! Or take your lessons in person in South Lake Tahoe, CA (halfway between Reno and Sacramento) or in Placerville, CA (a one hour drive from Sacramento), when pandemic restrictions subside. I can help you learn: * Proper hand technique * Sight reading skills * Improvisation skills * Music theory * Repertoire building - Learning Celtic, Classical, Renaissance, Folk, and all kinds of tunes * Arranging music for the harp * Accompaniment skills * Performance skills * and much more! I studied music theory and received my formal music education at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). When the Celtic harp piqued my interest, I studied harp techniques from world-renowned harpist Sylvia Woods and later contributed to her book "Music Theory & Arranging Techniques for Folk Harps." I performed on the GRAMMY® Award Winning New Age Album, "Winds of Samsara". NOTE: Anne's degree from UCLA is in mathematics, and she has taught for the L.A. Unified School District. If you need math or algebra tutoring, Anne is fully qualified. I love helping people learn to play the Celtic harp!

Anne Roos is a great teacher and fabulous instrumentalist. Learning to play an instrument is not just for children. I am Sixty-two and am living proof that one can learn to play the harp even though they have never read music or kept a beat. Anne is professional and cares deeply for her students. She gives them the power to succeed and knows how to help them improve. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to learn the harp regardless of their age.

Anne Roos


  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Anne Roos prefers to offer hourly lessons to older teenagers and adults, rather than half hour lessons, and then seeing students every other week. This allows more time for Anne to respond to questions, and it allows students more concentrated practice time. For children, and on request, Anne offers half-hour lessons taken every week--Less material is covered during the lesson, and the student's practice time is monitored more closely.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Anne takes the time to assess your musical experience and goals into consideration before you embark on your learning path. Lessons are always taught one-on-one so that you can learn at your own pace--Anne protects you from getting discouraged by comparing your abilities with others. Anne welcomes parents to be present during their child's lessons.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Anne's formal music education is from UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles). Anne studied harp techniques from Sylvia Woods and contributed to her book "Music Theory & Arranging Techniques for Folk Harps". She was schooled in stage performance by Ed Hooks (San Francisco). Anne Roos taught for the Los Angeles Unified School District and continues to work in schools, performing at school assemblies for all ages. Anne began teaching private students in 1987 and is an active member of the American String Teacher's Association. Anne Roos performed on the GRAMMY® Award winning harpist on the 2015 Best New Age Album, "Winds of Samsara". She enjoys working on advanced and works with advanced performance and studio recording preparation with advanced harpists, too. Visit her web page for more info.
