HARP TUITION

Tuition, from beginner to advanced level, is offered, either in classes or individual lessons. For beginners, good basic technique, chords and fingering are covered, as well as some simple tunes. Pieces can either be taught by ear or with written music. Singing with the harp is also offered. Contrary to popular belief, the harp is no more difficult to learn than any other instrument and you do not need any prior knowledge of music. The harp has the advantage of sounding beautiful straight away, no matter how simple the piece!


CLARSACH FOR HIRE / ASSISTANCE TO GAIN 100% FUNDING FOR HARP PURCHASE

It is essential to have a clarsach to practise on – instruments can be hired from £18 a month from the tutor. This is a competitive rate since harp makers charge £50 - £60 a month for hire! For parents unable to afford a clarsach, I have extensive experience of fund-raising and have been successful in helping several pupils gain100% funds to purchase their own harp.


PIANO LESSONS

Piano lessons are offered to students wishing to learn for pleasure or to take ABRSM piano grades. Theory and aural training are offered during lessons. With younger children, a ‘fun’ approach using sticker books is followed.
