Denver Harp Lessons

Reach your musical goals with focused, friendly, and professional one-on-one harp lessons

Barbara's Harp Lesson Approach

Barbara Lepke-Sims of Sacred Space loves to teach harp lessons to students of all ages in Denver.

Whether you're starting from the beginning, want to improve your technique, or have a specific goal in mind, Barbara will customize each harp lesson specifically for you.

As a collegiate student, you may study with Barbara at the university-level through Colorado Christian University and Regis University where she is an Affiliate Faculty Member in Applied Harp.

Barbara is able to help Denver students find an instrument to either rent or purchase when beginning harp lessons.  Most beginner students start with a 30 minute lesson and gradually work their way to hour long sessions.  While students make a lot of progress during each lesson, it is important for students to own their studies and practice during the week to improve their skills.

With a vast array of experience, Barbara is well-versed in helping her harp students meet a variety of goals. Her harp lessons are relevant for all skill levels to:

  • Learn beginner fundamentals
  • Improve technique
  • Prepare to play in churches, nursing homes, recitals, restaurants, or studios
  • Develop orchestra-level skills
  • Become well-versed in playing live therapeutic music

Versatile Denver Harp Lessons Open Future Opportunities

Barbara focuses on preparing her students for a variety of applications and career opportunities. She engages her students in harp recitals, chamber music, orchestras, and even harp ensembles such as Harp Fantasia, a concert sponsored by the Mile High Chapter of the AHS at the Lakewood Cultural Center.  She tries very hard to let students gain real world experience both in and out of their formal studies.

"Barbara Lepke-Sims is a wonderful harp teacher! In addition to teaching me a varied repertoire, she has taught me about performance, networking, and how to be a successful musician. With her extensive experience and contacts, she has helped me find work and prepare well for it. After being a student of Barbara’s for over six years, I would highly recommend her to a harp student of any level!"

"Mrs. Lepke-Sims keeps me at a good pace and doesn't allow me to slack off, but also doesn't have unfair expectations. She has helped me with both my orchestral work and solos, and is willing to work with me, and use my ideas for pieces."

- Ezekiel

"I have loved learning to play the harp and being a student of Mrs. Lepke-Sims. She is a wonderful example of Christian encouragement. I’m grateful for the opportunity to learn harp and get to know Mrs. Lepke-Sims."

"Thank you so very much for everything you have done for me both as a teacher and a friend. You have never hesitated to involve me in any opportunity that comes your way, and you have helped me blossom not only as a musician, but also as an artist.

I am so very fortunate to be able to call you my teacher and am immensely grateful for your presence in my life."
