*       You CAN Learn to Play the Harp! – Sandi Ludescher, Instructor. When you hear harp music do you always wish that you would've learned to play?

Don't wait until you get to heaven to play harp, either. Get a head start--DO IT NOW! It's not too late--and this class is perfect for you! Your instructor Sandi Ludescher didn't start playing harp until she was 40 years old. And, now, she may be one of the busiest professional harpists in New Mexico. In this 4-week class for beginners, Sandi will demystify harp techniques and show you how easy it is to get started playing the harp. Knowing how to read music is not required.
