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, please see below for more info*.
