Frequently Asked Questions
I have never played any musical instrument. Can I still learn to play the harp?
Yes! You can learn at any age and regardless of previous musical experience. We will learn the basics of music theory as we go along and progress at your own pace.
What instrument will I need? Do I need to buy a harp?
You do not need to buy a harp when starting – in fact, I advise against it!
I believe that you should try out an instrument before committing to a purchase – and for this, you will need some basic playing skills. Therefore I recommend hiring a harp when you start your lessons.
There are many harp manufacturers offering instruments for hire. The cost of monthly hire varies between £25 and £60 and most retailers offer deducting the costs of hiring a harp when you decide to buy a new one from them.
A 34 string lever harp is the most typical instrument on offer, and it can serve you for many months or even years!
If you would like to know more, book a trial lesson and I will advise on choosing your first instrument.
Where will the lessons take place?
This term the lessons will take place online.
To learn the harp from the comfort of your own home, you will need:
– a device such as laptop, phone, tablet with camera (most devices have them built in nowadays)
– broadband connection
I will help you to connect and make sure you’re comfortable with your set up.
What days and times can you offer?
I teach from Monday to Thursday between 2:00 and 7:00 pm.
What happens if I need to change the time or cancel my lesson?
Please let me know at least 48 hours before the lesson and I will do my best to offer an alternative time in the same week. If that is not possible, we will schedule a replacement lesson during the Make Up Week (please note only 1 lesson is allowed per student during the Make Up Week).
When is the good age for a child to start?
This depends on the kind of attention span your child has, their height and general coordination of movements. Children between 6 and 8 years old usually can focus for longer periods of time and enjoy their lessons, their fingers are also strong enough to maintain good position at an instrument.
How do you teach?
You can have a peek on how I teach through my Live Harp Lesson series for beginners and intermediate players. Every Friday at 11:00 am I give a short, FREE lesson on Facebook where you can ask your questions in real time. There’s always a free PDF for you to practise new skills after the lesson and video from the lessons is uploaded to the website, so you can go back and watch a replay whenever you need!
