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.
Learn to play the harp with professionally trained harpist! Whether you're a complete beginner, an advanced musician or somewhere in between my harp lessons can be tailored to harpists of all levels and ages. Every pupil is different and learn in different ways and I believe that it is important to identify what each student responds to in order to get the best results. A solid technique is crucial but instead of repeating various technical exercises which can be a bit tedious, I try to identify these techniques within pieces of music, helping them understand how good technique affects and supports their everyday learning, practicing and performing.
