Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
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 was a wonderful instructor who explained things clearly and effectively, always with enthusiasm!! Anne accommodated scheduling despite time zone differences and work schedules, which was so appreciated. It was very inspiring to be around Anne’s clear love of not only the harp, but music in general. I am so thankful to have been a student of hers! I would highly recommend to anyone looking for quality harp instruction by a professional—regardless of age or musical experience! You WILL learn how to play the harp with Anne.

Anne makes each lesson fun and is always ready to applaud your progress (even when you think it is less than it should have been). She has creative suggestions for combatting any blocks that can arise and tailors each lesson to where you are at on your musical journey.

My teenager has been working with Anne for two years. During those two years Mrs. Anne has not only meet my child where she is capable but also challenges her to go further beyond being content. Anne has been very patient and understanding. She’s been remarkable in helping my child to learn and play different genres along with growing in her own musical interests. My child is improving on sight reading, and is enhancing her repertoire of harp music. Most important, is that the our communication as Instructor, student, parent, is transparent and full circle. If there’s a musical piece my child has chosen and Mrs. Anne is unfamiliar with, she goes out of her way to look into it. I’m very thankful for Mrs. Anne being knowledgeable and able to instruct and guide where I can not. She’s a fantastic instructor!

Fantastic Teacher! Anne is a fabulous teacher, an amazing musician, and wonderful advisor. She teaches online just as if the lesson were in person. These lessons are a dream come true and so is Anne as a teacher. She teaches with excellence, but also at a pace that works for you. She is patient, funny, and very wise. My harp journey is a joy because of Anne! Highly recommend!!!

Background Check

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.
