Harp lessons for all levels and ages in Paris and nearby

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Harpist graduated with a Master and a License in Music (harp) from two prestigious Canadian schools, and winner of international competitions, offers comprehensive, adapted, and motivating harp lessons. 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.

Lessons given on Celtic harp or pedal harp at my home or at the student's.

About Me

A Canadian harpist passionate about what I do. I started the harp at 9 years old with a wonderful teacher who, by coincidence, was in the lineage of a world-renowned harpist woul would become my harp teacher much later.

During my time at university, I had the chance to play with many orchestras and varied ensembles. What encompasses my many years is the passion to make the connection with someone by doing or teaching music. Music transcends all barriers.

After graduating from my Master's, I've had many opportunities to teach harp during the past 11 years to all ages and levels, and I have discovered many important and very real things about pedagogy.

I aspire to make this connection with all my students, so that they may feel the same joy of learning that I had.

Classical and Celtic Harp lessons for students of any age
My goal as a Music teacher now is not only to teach you “the right notes”: I will do my best for you to enjoy Music, to discover the instruments, to be creative and curious, to give space to your ideas and to express yourself through playing, using few words but a lot of practice. Every lesson will be a moment of reciprocal exchange of knowledge and ambitions, a new adventure for everyone to learn from each other.

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.

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

It is also possible to make your own songs or covers on the harp together with the student!

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.

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.
