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.

Celtic harp
Have you always wanted to learn the harp? here is the Celtic harp is the right choice for you. I teach the Celtic harp for several years. This is the harp found in Ireland and Brittany. I have been playing for about ten years in Denmark where I come from, including traditional music from Scandinavia and Celtic music.

Mélanie
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 to Belgium about once a month for face-to-face lessons (duration of face-to-face lesson: 90 minutes). Next dates for face-to-face courses in Belgium: March 15 and 16. For Skype lessons (3-4x per month, lesson duration 60 minutes) see typical week. Do not hesitate to write to me.

Pedal and Lever harp lessons, in person in SE London or online
I always make sure all pupils enjoy their lessons giving a friendly and fun approach to them. Regardless of age and skill level I want my students to be able to enjoy their time practicing and playing. I can prepare students for all grades of the ABRSM or other boards exams and I complement the lessons with music theory and aural skills training when needed. I can also offer music theory lessons that being to complement music education, prepare for the ABRSM music theory exams or just to expand the knowledge in that area. The approach for in-person and online tuition are quite similar. I effectively teach using both methods with great results in both. When online, I make sure they are of exceptional quality and the pupil gets the same results they would get in person. They are ideal if traveling is a limitation for the student or just want to take them from the comfort of their home using their own instrument. If preferred, I can also give the lesson in Spanish.

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.

Abigail
Classical Harp and Clarsach Lessons Available in London
I am offering private harp teaching to individual students. I offer tuition in classical harp alongside traditional Scottish and Irish music. I grew up in the Highlands, where I began playing the Clarsach learning by ear. I studied classical harp from the age of twelve at Aberdeen City Music School, the Music School of Douglas Academy and Chetham's School of Music (my teachers included Alina Bzhezhinska Lazorkina, Murdo Macrae and Marie Leenhardt). After finishing secondary school i attended the Norwegian Academy of music and studied under the tutelage of Isabelle Perrin. I have experience freelancing with various British and Scandinavian Orchestras and ensembles, and have spent a lot of time working with jazz and contemporary music projects. I have been teaching privately and through arts organisations in the Highlands of Scotland for the last few years, and have developed a great passion for sharing knowledge and my love of the harp.

With me you can learn everything you need for the blues harp. From the first notes, replaying your favorite songs and special techniques to fluid improvisation and playing together with other musicians. I'm also happy to convey a solid understanding of the music theory behind the harmonica, but if you don't feel like learning theory, that's no problem for me. I welcome adults and young people over 12 years of age. Hourly prices can be negotiated by telephone, the price stated is a guideline, not a fixed price.

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!

Perhaps you are a curious beginner looking to explore the magic of the harp, or maybe you are an experienced musician eager to enhance your musical skills? Regardless of your level, my harp and music lessons are designed for you. I am a passionate teacher with over 10 years of experience in teaching the harp, music theory, and music education at various levels, from children to adults. I love creating a positive learning atmosphere, allowing the student to feel comfortable and motivated, whether they are a beginner or an advanced musician. Each student will have their own customized study method to progress at their own pace, and I listen carefully to every request to nurture their natural attitude for learning. I pay special attention to the student's preferences in terms of repertoire and goals, even arranging some musical scores that may not have been initially intended for the harp. These lessons are suitable for both amateurs and professional musicians, whether they are young or adults. You don't need to know how to read music (music notation and solfège) or have played an instrument before to learn how to play the harp. My method is organized so that theory is learned through practice. You will quickly discover that the harp, contrary to what one might think, is a very easy instrument to play! How about playing a wide range of musical styles, from classical to Celtic music, and even contemporary compositions? What kind of music inspires you the most? I look forward to meeting you, Eleonora — FRENCH — Avez-vous déjà rêvé de créer des mélodies magiques et envoûtantes ? Vous êtes-vous déjà demandé ce que cela ferait de maîtriser l'art de la harpe et de plonger dans l'univers merveilleux de la musique ?

Chaque étudiant(e) aura sa propre méthode d'étude faite sur mesure pour progresser à son rythme, et j'écoute attentivement chaque demande afin de stimuler son attitude naturelle pour l'apprentissage.

Ces cours s'adressent aussi bien aux amateurs qu'aux musicien(ne)s professionnel(le)s, qu'ils soient jeunes ou adultes.

J'ai hâte de vous rencontrer, Eleonora

Maria
A professional harpist with a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Harp offers both in - person and online lessons for all skill levels.
First and foremost, at the beginning of each journey, I highly value getting to know and listen to the student's needs and the objectives they aim to achieve. This way, I can establish a teaching method tailored to each individual right from the start. Throughout the lessons, I focus on both refining the instrument's technique (especially if the student is a beginner, initially dedicating a significant amount of time and energy to understand which technique suits their hand and subjectivity best) and enhancing musical expressiveness, ease in performance, and addressing the specific needs that vary from student to student. I also consider it extremely important to work on a classical repertoire while simultaneously discovering the student's musical preferences. I am very open to accommodating the student's requests while highlighting prominent composers and pieces within the repertoire. Central to my teaching approach is the student - teacher dialogue during the lesson, which I believe is crucial for an effective, serene, and formative learning experience. Moreover, I offer lessons aimed at preparing the student for a potential competition, conservatory audition, or orchestra performance.

Custom harples! For both the beginner and the advanced, from classical to pop!
Looking for a harp teacher? Then you've come to the right place! I teach both the novice and the advanced student. (valve harp + pedal harp) I myself graduated as a professional harpist and above that I obtained an educational master, since teaching has always been my passion. My way of teaching is strongly adapted to the wishes and level of the student. I myself like to involve games in class because from my experience this helps the younger students a lot. You can come to me for classical music, but also pop music, Celtic / folk music, contemporary music and Spanish music is possible! It is also possible to make your own songs or covers on the harp together with the student!

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'm in my third bachelor's degree. I have been taking harp lessons for 13 years with various renowned teachers such as Eline Groslot and Annie Lavoisier. During this period I also gained a lot of experience as a concert harpist. Including the second prize in the Concours 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 using harp. Each student is guided at his own pace and the lessons are adapted to the wishes of each student. Note learning lessons are also adjusted as much as possible to the student's pace.

Caterina
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.

Laudine
Pedal harp lessons, Celtic harp or musical theory, all ages, all levels
My lessons, given in a relaxed, respectful and productive atmosphere, are aimed at students of all ages and levels.
