Looking for an experienced, inspiring, knowledgeable professional harp teacher?
You found the right place!
I welcome students of all levels and regardless if you want to turn professional, are preparing for exams, auditions or orchestral excerpts, or just want to play for your own leisure, accompany your singing or just enjoy the sheer pleasure of learning a new instrument – whether you are new to music or not. There are so many reasons to learn the harp, and there are all right – you should, it is an amazing instrument. If you are already an intermediate or advanced player, great, let’s push what you can do.
Originally from Switzerland, I graduated from the prestigious Guildhall School of Music & Drama with a Masters Distinction and Bachelor of Music First class degree. I have been teaching privately for more than six years with regular students who progressed and enjoyed learning through my teaching. I value hard work and discipline but also fun and engaging ways to learn. I also understand that some weeks are more filled with your other work than others. I will always encourage you to progress and persevere because I believe you can do it and you will learn a lot by doing so.
Subjects that I will work on and develop in my lessons are tailored to your needs. They generally include: technique, sound production, tone, sight-reading, repertoire, studies, excerpts study, improvisation, arrangements and music theory. I have had the chance to take many masterclasses from the prominent harpists, prominent teachers of the French and Russian harp techniques, such as Isabelle Perrin, Catrin Finch, Sivan Magen, Sylvain Blassel, Marielle Nordmann, Chantal Mathieu, Helga Storck and many more. By joining the London Harp Studio you will meet like-minded musicians and be part of a lineage of eminent harpists and tradition of harp playing that traces back to no other than the Queen of France Marie Antoinette!
