Brittany Smith is a professionally trained classical harpist, holding a DipABRSM in harp performance. She studied privately under Shirley Lukey (Suzuki), Dr. Alison Attar (D.M. Harp Performance, Northwestern University), and others.  She received her Suzuki Teacher Training under Mary Kay Waddington, the founder of the Suzuki method for harp.  Brittany enjoys passing on her love for the harp to her students and watching them grow from “playing an instrument” to playing music. Throughout her experience with the Suzuki method, she feels it is one of the best ways to gain a solid foundation both musically and technically.  Brittany has been performing professionally in the northwest Chicago area since 1999, and teaching Suzuki harp since 2006.
