Teaching

Those who want to learn about the basics of jazz, blues and improvisation for harp are welcome for private lessons in my studio in London, UK, at Harp Studio Rotterdam in The Netherlands, or by Skype/Zoom.

I am available for more 'traditional' harp teaching as well. By this, I mean teaching technique and more classically oriented music at a beginner, intermediate or intermediate/advanced level. Do count on your share of talk about musical structure and chords;), which will by the way greatly improve practicing and gaining insight in your classical and traditional pieces as well.

Should you be interested in graded music exams, I teach both the Trinity and ABRSM curriculums, and all of my students who went in for their exams have passed, most often with merit or distinction. I have had the honour of contributing to the new 2020-2023 Trinity repertoire lists, both by advising on jazz related repertoire, and with a blues composition of my own (grade 6 lever harp).

Harpists with a special interest in jazz can also attend one of the workshops or courses organised or supported by the Jazz Harp Foundation. The calendar at www.jazzharp.org lists these and more education opportunities worldwide.
Want to really dive into learning jazz harp on a higher level? Then consider to attend the Jazz Harp Academy intensive courses, or check in with us at www.jazzharp.org for more info on private lessons with the jazz harp greats.
