Teaching Philosophy: I believe in attainable goals and small steps that make big differences. I believe that all students who want to learn music have the ability to cultivate an aptitude for music. I take an individualized approach for students of all walks of life, as no two students will ever be exactly the same. I am gentle and patient and understanding when it comes to student progress. I want my students to have fun with music & learn the joy of the process rather than only fixating on the result of learning.

Get to know Arden Harper

Hello! My name is Arden Harper. I have a degree in Music Education from West Chester University of Pennsylvania. I've lived my entire life in PA, and have been musical for as long as I can remember. My first instrument was piano, followed closely by trumpet. I have always been involved in my school or university (now community) choirs, bands, and orchestras, and have done a variety of performances including musical theatre, marching band and drum corps, wind ensembles, jazz bands, a cappella groups, choirs, solo singing and playing, accompanying (as a pianist), and much more. As an adult, I enjoy the musical theatre season especially for gig opportunities. I live in Philadelphia, PA with my partner and our cats.
