What can you learn?
Beginner’s classes introduce students to basic techniques and inspire them to work on music on their own in areas of traditional and classical music. They are tailored to the individual students needs and encourage progression.
This is focused on how to control your hand position and body movement. This will improve the sound whilst at the same time encouraging a relaxed position.
Learn faster and perform without stress:
All students are encouraged to work using Renie’s Repair Point method and Neuro Linguistic Programming. These will help with performance technique as well as help the students to grow in confidence.
Learn your favourite pieces of music or prepare for the Grade Examination:
As well as focusing on technique, all students are advised to learn complete pieces and prepare for examinations.
Arranging New Music for the Harp:
The goal of this class is to encourage students to explore music beyond the existing repertoire for the harp.
