Harp
CRB checked, , pedal harp & lever harp tuition, , ABRSM grade system or, non-grade system with emphasis on learning repertoire , , 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.

I teach electric guitar where I cover many styles and techniques. I have a large collection of exercises that introduce the student to new styles and give them a basic understanding of them. I teach lead and rhythm guitar and also the area where they cross over. I teach my students guitar techniques they will actually find a use for., I teach from home in my studio where I have everything I need. Each lesson the student receives a set of printed notes for their "homework" aloYou do not have to read music to have lessons but if you want to I can teach you that too. My lessons involve some music theory as and when the techniques involved demand it., If a student wants to work on one particular aspect of technique or theory we can do that. No two students are the same - I tailor each lesson to the student's needs.
