Harp lessons in Nelson, New Zealand

Would you like to learn how to play the harp? Or perhaps you already play and want to improve your skills.

I work as a harp teacher for children and adults, and I always try to make harp lessons fun.

Harp lessons for children

Small children always say they enjoy their lessons, and their parents tell me that I'm very patient! I use fun learning games to teach the theory side of music, and place a lot of importance on how to read music. That way, young pupils can become independent learners and end up as better musicians.

Unlike many other instruments, the harp sounds gorgeous even when it's played by a beginner. They'll be able to master simple tunes almost immediately. After that, I can teach all the way through to Grade 8 - but it's fine if they just want to play for fun without taking any exams. To me, the most important thing is that they enjoy the process.

Harp lessons for grown-ups

You may already play the harp and need to hone your skills, or you may be a complete beginner. Perhaps you play another instrument and want to try something new. Whatever your current standard or ability, I'd be delighted to help.

I'll tailor the lessons to suit you. If you're just starting out I can help you get to grips with the basics. If you're an advanced player I can teach you specific techniques to improve your overall harp playing skills and performance style.
