My Mission

Professional Harp Teacher

I am a professional harp teacher who is primarily based in Worthing but I have recently started to offer online lessons to all students no matter where you are in the world. Being able to offer online lessons has been a great way to connect with and help musicians from all over the world, not just in my local area. Thanks to the power of technology all you would need to get started is a device with a camera on it and an active internet connection, it's really never been simpler.

In my experience online lessons are a great way to learn an instrument and I have found that I am able to offer as high quality lessons as I would be even if we were doing face to face lessons, so please rest assured it's almost like were in the same room anyway, only you never have to leave the comfort of your own home. I think being in a comfortable and relaxed environment while your learning is a crucial part of retaining the most information and making the most progress.

I have being playing and teaching the harp for many years now and I love what I do. I am very passionate about my instrument and I take great pride in sharing this passion with my students.

I am fluent and capable of playing/teaching the Flute, Harp, Celtic Harp and a Pedal Harp in a wide range of styles and have been playing since I was 6 years old. I have a wealth of teaching experience and have been teaching these instruments for many years now both privately and also in schools in my local area. I believe I am a flexible and versatile teacher so no matter what you want from these lessons together we will get you well on your way to being the best harp player you can be.

My Experience as a Teacher

As a junior student at Trinity College of Music, London I began to study fully how to play the harp with Gabriella Dall’Olio, Frances Kelly and the flute also with David Oliver achieving grade 8 in both instruments. Studying here really equipped me with a wide range of musical skills that not only helped me play my instruments well, but also helped me to develop a better understanding of music in general.

I then went on to further my studies at the Royal Academy of Music were I was fortunate enough to receive both my Bachelor and Masters degrees. Here I was taught by the well known harpist Karen Vaughan and graduated with an MA with Distinction, BMus (Hons) and a Licentiate of the Royal Academy of Music (LRAM) teaching qualification. I am very excited to now be able to share all the skills I developed here with my own students.

I currently teach private lessons from my own teaching space in Worthing, West Sussex and I also teach at Bromley High School, Newstead Wood School and Bromley Youth Music Trust, Kent. This has given me the opportunity to teach and to work with students from all walks of life and skill levels, so I feel confident when working with any student at all.

More About My Lessons

I believe I am a very friendly and approachable teacher who will offer any support that I can when it comes to the harp lessons. Music theory will be integrated into the lessons and students will have the opportunity to take graded exams if they wish to do so or you can of course just play for fun! If you have always wanted to play the harp but maybe don't have one of your own then I do have a lever and pedal harp that you can use for the duration of the lesson.

Alongside my teaching I do also work freelance as a soloist, orchestral and chamber musician which has provided me with many great musical opportunities. I have been fortunate enough to perform at some very prestigious concert venues including places like The Royal Festival Hall, Cardiff Millennium Centre, Royal Opera House, Cadogan Hall, St John’s, Smith Square, Kings College Chapel, Cambridge, Glyndebourne Opera House, Kensington Palace and St James’ Palace to name a few.

As well as being a performing musician I have featured on a number of recordings including composer Paul Patterson’s CD ‘Harp Gallery’ which showcases his works for the harp. I also did a recording for Rick Wakeman and a number of video game soundtracks including the award-winning ‘Total War’ series which was such a great experience. Playing music is something I feel everyone should get to enjoy, so I am very excited to help you on your way to experience this too.

Teacher Tips
What You Will Need

Here is some information on what you'll need to take a Zoom harp lesson.

How To Take An Online Lesson

Here is some information to help you get prepared to take your online harp lessons.

Speed Test, is a very useful tool as having a stable internet connection is one of the most important parts to these lessons. Here you will be able to see what your speeds are and we will only need a speed of 3mbps to have a stable enough connection for the lessons.

As well as a stable internet connection you will need to have access to some kind of electronic device that has a camera on it. This could be things like a laptop, tablet or a smartphone. Many things have cameras on them nowadays so once we have access to one of these you are ready to go.

Once you have a device ready to go, there are many services we can use to connect for the actual lessons. The most common and reliable service tends to be Zoom. If this doesn't work things like Skype or Facetime for Apple device users are also an option.
