Keeping Children Safe in Music is the latest in the EduCare's series of distance learning courses on child protection. The training programme uses short films to show a variety of good and bad practice examples, which will be available to watch online. It will help anyone teaching music to children gain a better understanding of their child protection responsibilities, and avoid situations that could lead to accusations of misconduct.

Adults & children

Please note that you will need to have a harp before having lessons from me!

You can hire a small lever harp (folk/clarsach) for a couple of months (usually with an option to buy if you like that harp), and I'm always happy to advise students on buying second hand harps.

My recommendations of good small lever harps are Pilgrim Clarsach from http://www.pilgrimharps.co.uk/hire.htm or a Salvi or Lyon & Healy Lever Harps from either London http://www.holywellmusic.co.uk/start.html. I also highly recommend the Camac lever harp range, especially the Hermione from The Early Music Shop.

The reason I recommend these small harps is that not only are they good instruments, which means you will enjoy playing them, they keep their value well and second hand ones are sought after. Please do not buy a cheap harp from ebay!

If the harp is less than £1000 it's probably not a good harp :-(

More information about getting a harp can be found here http://www.iharp.info/get-harp.htm

Twice a year I run an informal harp ensemble on a Sunday afternoon where all my students get together and play solos as well in ensemble.
