Currently, I have a private music studio located in Union Bridge, MD where I teach just over 20 students ranging from age 7 to adult.  I love interacting with each of my students on a personal level, and discovering each individual’s own style and though most of my lessons are conducted in person, I do have options for virtual lessons as well. 

Lesson Rates:

   30 minute lessons are $28 per lesson

   45 minute lessons are $42 per lesson

   60 minute lessons are $53 per lesson.

Rental Harps:

I do have a few rental harps to interested students.

Please contact me for harp rental availability and other rental/purchase options

I encourage you to contact me with any questions about private instruction. To make it easier, here are a few frequently asked questions in one place for easy reference.

Private Instruction FAQ

Do I need to know how to read music before studying the harp?

Though knowing how to read music prior to lessons is most definitely helpful, it is not a requirement to take lessons. Learning how to read music is a skill that new students will learn during their first few harp lessons and will continue to strengthen throughout their time in my studio.

Hi! I'm Olivia Higgins and I am a freelance wedding harpist and harp instructor in the northern MD and southern PA areas.


I began my harp studies at the age of ten under the guidance of Elaine Bryant and I quickly fell in love with the harp. Throughout high school I played  in recitals, church programs, and with the Frederick Symphony Orchestra.


After high school I attended Gettysburg College Sunderman Conservatory where I completed my Bachelors of Music in Harp Performance with the help of my teacher Astrid Walschott-Stapp.



I began performing and teaching private music lessons during college and fell in love with helping my students and wedding couples realize that the harp is capable of so much more then classical music.

Services: Wedding Ceremony Violin and Harp

I hired Olivia to surprise my now wife on our wedding day and it worked perfectly! Olivia was very open to different music genres and selections that I had in mind. She was able to book a violinist to accompany her for an additional fee. Both fees were very affordable compared to other musicians. The harp looked absolutely amazing and the combo with the violinist brought such a magical feel to the already magical ceremony. My wife was very excited when she walked down the aisle and saw where the beautiful music was coming from. Thank you for making our wedding one of a kind!
