    I am fully silver in the hair and 58 in the age department!! I started playing harp in my late 40s when I had little time in my life to do so. I learned right away that learning as you age gets harder and harder…so it has required more patience and grace to do so. But consistency and persistency have helped me to slowly…very slowly…move forward! For instance, it took me 6 years instead of 3 to get through the International Harp Therapy Program and graduate in 2020. I also have a harp teacher that uses the ABRSM curriculum which has 8 levels and I am still only preparing for my level 4 exam! But, slow and steady wins the race, as they say.
