Education

After my Bachelor Diploma in Genova (Italy), in 2014 I won a Scholarship and I moved to Den Haag for a six-months Internship at the Royal Conservatory. There, from 2015, I have attended finished in 2017 the “NAIP-New Audiences and Innovative Practice” European Master, which enriched me with many new skills and a greater awarness about Music and its role in our own lives and our Society.

Experience / Qualifications

As harp performer, I am an open-minded and curious player: beside many years of pure Classical repertoire, all through the years I collected many different experiences also in Contemporary Music repertoire, focusing on free improvisation, live-electronics performances, collaboration with composers and experimentation of all possibilities on my instrument. I was part of NOOS Ensemble (Italy), PYO-Palestine Youth Orchestra (Italy, Palestine, Jordan), GEO-Galata Electroacustic Orchestra (Italy), Jeune Orchestre International de Montecarlo and DUO Flauto&Arpa (Italy).

As teacher, thanks to my Master carreer I am trained to lead and teach different kinds of groups, from children to teenagers, from people with dementia to vulnerable groups. In 2017, I was involved as Artistic Producer in an intensive training-programm for teachers of El Sistema Greece in Athens (supported by Impact Hub Athens) analysing and developing the organization of music lessons for children in refugee camps nearby Athens.
I am now collaborating with the vibraphone player Fernan Mejuto Vazquez for the
realisation of our original music workshop format “Around the World”, addressed to children and kids from different parts of the world living in NL, and based on our favourite method and philosophy of working through Creative Music Making and Collaborative Composition Processes, applicable to any kind of group and community.

Beside my teaching activity, I work as Production Leader and Coordinator at the Royal Conservatory of Den Haag, organising music events for students. This job has certainly taught me a lot about reliability, responsibility, flexibility and punctuality: all these skills undoubtedly characterize every aspect of my working life, without a doubt also that of teacher.

For all ages and levels. The focus will be on the history of the harp, technique, its role in ensembles, and of course learning to play! The goal is to create a network of harpists from the start. I give the tools to the students so that they can become complete musicians while always questioning themselves intelligently on the motives behind the methods.

Mustakim
Music Classes (Piano and Harp) for kids, teens, and adults
I have been very motivated to learn music for 11 years. So far, I am self-taught and I always have the pleasure of being able to share how I learned to play my instruments (Piano and Harp). Thanks to that, I skipped a few harp levels at the conservatory this year. 😄 Do not hesitate to contact me for more information.

Luna
Harples and solfège lessons for each level. By an enthusiastic harpist. Student at the conservatory with experience in teaching.
I am currently a student at the Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles. I am in my third bachelor. I have followed harp lessons for 13 years with various renowned teachers such as Eline Groslot and Annie Lavoisier. In this period I also gained a lot of experience as a concert harpist. With, among other things, the second prize in the competition Français de la Harpe (2017). And for 3 years I also give private lessons in harp and solfège. These lessons focus on both (young) children who want to learn harp and adults who want to start with harp. Each student is guided at his own pace and the lessons are adapted to the wishes of each student. Also, solfège lessons are adapted as much as possible to the pace of the student.

Eleonora
Harp and Music Theory/Solfege lessons, for adults and children. Harpe et Solfège cours pour enfants et adults
FR Je suis une harpiste italienne qui actuellement vit et travaille à Bruxelles. Je suis diplômée (Master of Music in Harp - soliste et orchestre) avec la grande distinction du Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles. A côté de ça, je continue ma carrière de soliste, de harpiste dans l'orchestre et d'enseignant, en appréciant chaque aspect de ceux-ci. Je suis une professeur passionnée et j'ai plus de 10 ans d'expérience dans l'enseignement de la harpe, de la formation musicale et de la théorie musicale à plusieurs niveaux, à partir des enfants aux adultes. J'ai travaillé soit comme professeur privée pendant des années, soit dans l'école de musique de ma ville natale en Italie (Scuola di Musica "Luigi Rachel"). J'adore créer une atmosphère d'apprentissage positive, permettant à l'étudiant(e) de se sentir à l'aise et stimulé(e), qu'il/elle soit un(e) musicien(ne) débutant(e) ou avancé(e). Chaque étudiant(e) a sa propre méthode d'étude faite sur mesure pour progresser à son rythme et j'écoute avec attention chaque demande, afin de booster son attitude naturelle pour l'apprentissage. Je porte une attention particulière aux préférences de l'élève, en termes de répertoire et d'objectifs, en arrangeant également certaines partitions musicales qui pourraient ne pas être destinées à la harpe premièrement. Ces cours s'adressent aussi bien aux amateurs qu'aux musicien(ne)s professionnel(le)s, jeunes ou adultes. Ma langue maternelle est l'italien, mais je parle aussi couramment l'anglais et le français. J'ai hâte de vous rencontrer, Eleonora EN I am an italian harpist currently living and working in Brussels. I graduated (Master of Music in Harp - soloist and orchestra) with first class honours in Italy and at the Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles. Meanwhile, I have been going on with my soloist, orchestral and teaching career, enjoying every aspect of it. I am an enthusiastic teacher and I have more than 10 years experience in teaching harp, solfège, music theory and harmony on many levels, from children to adults. I have been working both as a private teacher and in my hometown's school of music in Italy (Scuola di Musica "Luigi Rachel"). I love to create a positive learning environment allowing the student to feel comfortable and stimulated, whether he/she is a beginner or an advanced musician. Every student has a tailored method of study for progressing at their own pace and I will carefully listen to every request. I pay close attention to the student's preferences, in terms of repertoire and goals, also arranging some musical scores that might not be intended for the harp in the first place. These classes are either intended for amateurs or aspiring professional musicians, young or adult learners. My mother tongue is Italian, but I am also fluent in English and French. I'm looking forward to meeting you, Eleonora

Laia
Professional harpist offers Celtic harp and pedal lessons for all levels and ages
I am a professional Catalan harpist who is currently studying her first year of master's degree in musical interpretation of the harp, in Musikene (Donostia-San Sebastián). I teach people of all ages and all levels: initiation, elementary, professional ... My specialty is harp and I am not adapted to give classes at my home, at the student's and even online. I adapt to what everyone wants, both frequent and sporadic classes. During these, I like to make brief notes from other fields such as history or music theory, so that they are complemented with the instrument, to help their understanding and thus obtain a more complete experience. This, of course, depends on your interests and I am flexible to what you can propose to me. Write me and ask without any commitment!

Medieval, folk and Celtic harp lessons
"I still remember the first time I heard the sounds of a harp, when I was 8, my grandparents took me to a concert in the little church in Gosselies. To pinch the strings, I was kidnapped by the magic sound that came from the heart of the woods.The longer the concert went on, the closer I got to the harp ... After harassing my parents for a year, I started To study this magnificent instrument, it immediately became a sacred object for me, and thanks to him, I could communicate my feelings, laugh, relax and find the desired balance. " My courses are based on the Irish teaching method so first of all to the ear, on the resources that the student has in himself and on the fact that one learns while having fun. I propose a harp lesson: - Medieval dedicated to teenagers and adults for false beginner and intermediate based on medieval music and rebirth, improvisation, arrangement of melodies, ... - Celtic for all ages from 14 to 70 years, beginner level, false beginner, intermediate and intermediate / advanced based on Celtic repertoire and Irish, Scottish and Breton techniques After a few lessons, the neo-harpists will play short and simple melodies until the end of the journey to play more complete melodies that provide accompaniment and use of both hands. Lessons are defined on the learning needs of individual students. Even if I use the Irish teaching method, I will provide the basis for reading the pentagram, for the integration of rhythm, the foundations of harmony so that the student can read a piece of music independently. I live in Italy, so I come back once a month in Belgium (sometimes more) for the courses in attendance (duration of the lesson in attendance: 90 minutes). Next dates for the courses in attendance: - I hope end of July - the week of August 15 For skype lessons (3x per month, lesson duration 60 minutes) see the typical week. Do not hesitate to write to me.

MUSIC, Harp ( Celtic and classical harp ) focus on alternative repertoire Improvisation. available MUSIC IN ENGLISH all instruments.
I am Australian and live in Italy. I am a Harpist, Composer and arranger, with many years experience playing concerts, solo and in groups ; events, and theater work. My teaching experience is mainly with adult beginners and intermediate, and classical students , or players who want to explore jazz and improvvisation. My focus in teaching is to empower and inspire the student at what ever level they feel they are at. I like to help students arrive at their own goals , and persue their own chosen style , and repertoire whilst, suggesting new and perhaps alternatives in both approach and repertoire to expand musical horizons. For harpists the basis of technique is classical, believing in a strong technical base , whilst the approach of choosing and finding repertoire is non classical. I like to give the opportunity to alternate with music learned off the page with learning by ear. My specialty is improvisation, both structured and free and am available to teach improvisation, and music in English to not only harpists but to any musicians who already play and may like to explore improv. and help with english lyrics, terminology, and theory. I am also able to help musicians to arrange music for their instrument in the context of duos and trios for example strings with harp, or composers wishing to write for harp.
