Additional Info: As a creative and innovative teacher, Mrs. Lake currently teaches over 25 students in the Chicago area. Mrs. Lake loves to teach all ages and levels as evidenced by her three teaching posts at her home studio, the Sherwood Conservatory of Music at Columbia College, and the University of Chicago.

All methods of harp playing (Salzedo, Grandjany, Suzuki, Grossi, Harp Olympics, wire strung, Celtic, Latin American/Paraguayan/Ecuadorian, jazz, etc.) are familiar to Mrs. Lake, and she believes that whichever method makes the best music while remaining healthy for the player is the right method. Keep an eye out for her new book "Beginning Music on the Harp" which is geared towards young children with no musical training. (Why start on the piano when you really want to play the harp?)

Group lessons are available for the intermediate and advanced levels only.

Mrs. Lake's private studio is on the near west side of Chicago on the corner of Madison and Leavitt streets.
Weekly lessons are recommended for all students to ensure continual progress, and are required for all beginners. Mrs. Lake is currently accepting students ages four and up.
Curriculum
Each lesson includes these components: Warm up/technical exercises, music review, rhythmic work, and a new piece of music. Mrs. Lake teaches music history, music theory, and harp maintenance in lessons.

Performance Opportunities
When students work hard, they earn the right to perform for others. All ages have the opportunity to perform in a spring and fall recital. Adults have the opportunity to take part in quarterly teas or salons at Mrs. Lake's home. Children are strongly encouraged to take part in at least one holiday party, recital, or group class per quarter.

How to Begin Harp Lessons

First, contact Janelle Lake to set up a trial lesson. During a trial lesson, you can see if the harp and harp lessons are feasible for you without being obligated to sign a package contract. Trial lessons are $45/hour, $35/forty-five minutes, $25/half- hour. If you are in the middle of the quarter and you would like to start right away, you may pay for individual lessons until the next quarter begins. Otherwise, this might be a good time to pick out a harp.
