What Students Say:
"Tomina is a talented, skilled teacher, who really understands basic learning theory. She is excellent at breaking learning down into small chunks, correcting weak areas, and going after all areas of learning an instrument. She loves music and relates very well to people (warm, caring, good sense of humor). I highly recommend her as a teacher."
"Tomina is a talented harpist and an excellent teacher. I’ve been studying harp with her for several years. She is very methodical in her approach towards teaching and knows exactly how to breakdown the concepts for a student. She is also extremely patient, always encouraging, and accommodating to the busy schedules of an adult student. I enjoyed every lesson with Tomina, from the first lesson on sitting and hand positions and how to pluck the strings on a lever harp, to practicing techniques and exploring much more sophisticated pieces on a concert grand a few years later. Learning harp is a lifelong endeavor, and I am so glad that I started the journey with Tomina!"
"Tomina taught me how to play the harp properly with correct positioning of hands; I will forever be grateful for that. She's the real deal if you're looking for a professional teacher with lots of experience."
