Brenda Dor-Groot

London & Rotterdam based harpist with classical roots, a passion for the blues, and a pioneering spirit.

I perform and teach blues, jazz, classical music and free improvisation. Equally at home on pedal and lever harp, acoustic and electric, my harp practise is as varied as it gets! 

I am grateful to have had the best of teachers and coaches in The Netherlands, Germany, the UK and beyond. And I have the loveliest students, in multiple countries as well, in person as well as online. To be honest, I wish borders wouldn’t exist at all, and I love that music is a truly universal language.
