About the class:

The class is suitable for absolute beginners and no previous knowledge is required. We will learn in a relaxed, fun and gentle way which will enable each participant to learn at their own pace. We will work as one group, creating a beautiful sound while learning some basic playing techniques.

This class is designed to give participants some basic knowledge about harp playing techniques and tuning. It is also an opportunity to learn about harps in general and to get acquainted with some of the ins and outs of this beautiful instrument.

We will use small 20 string beginners harps which can be taken home to practise in between the weekly sessions (terms and conditions apply).

How to book:

Please contact me and I will sent you some further information and a booking form.

A £60 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve a booking, remaining fees have to be paid by January 14th.

Please note:

Harps come with many strings attached and need a lot of care and attention. Therefore take-home harp hire will require a £130 security deposit (in some circumstances proof of insurance will be accepted instead). Terms and conditions will apply.

Take-home harp hire is optional and you may choose to hire the harp during the evening classes only. However, the same overall course fees as with take-home hire will apply.
