As a pioneer Suzuki Harp Teacher and SAA Registered Harp Teacher Trainer since 2004, it has been Delaine Fedson Leonard’s privilege to bring Dr. Suzuki’s approach to ever increasing numbers of harpists. Many of her former students have become competition winners and professionals throughout the USA, Canada, France and Austria. Her extensive background in harp pedagogy makes it easy to tailor her teaching approach to a student’s individual needs.
Students of all ages and abilities are welcomed in the private Suzuki studio. The studio runs on two long (approximately 15 week) semesters and one short (4-6 week) semester per calendar year. Enrollment is by the semester.
Individual coaching in the Austin studio or via Skype is also available at an hourly rate.
