Eleanor teaches primarily at her home studio in Lincolnshire and online (currently we are amidst the CVD19 pandemic and all Eleanor's lessons are via Zoom ) and gives masterclasses and workshops around the world. She also creates exciting and diverse courses, some of which are now available ONLINE via Eleanor's new 'Online Harp School' on the Teachable platform. Click here to read about these courses: hot off the press is The Three Waves course in the rudiments of Indian classical music on the harp, together with tabla maestro Mendi Singh, which will enable you to gain a comprehensive understanding of playing Indian classical music, an ability to slip into a Bhangra groove at a moment's notice (ideal for Bollywood playing) and a deep understanding of how a chance meeting can be nurtured into a fulfilling musical relationship over five years (culminating in us having two fantastic managers and national and international bookings!)
Eleanor enjoys sharing her skills and knowledge of the harp and music throughout history to infuse the next generation with passion and confidence. Eleanor encourages students to engage in extensive research, thoughtful practice and to learn from other instrumentalists, composers and conductors.
Eleanor also teaches at the following institutes: University of Birmingham, York University, Durham University and the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. Eleanor has been a tutor on Ruth Faber's Teenage Harp Course, for 14-18 year olds, for many years and highly recommends the course to young harpists from the UK and abroad. This year the course was held entirely online, with a full cohort of 20 musicians, but in 2021 we hope to be back at our new home of Sherbourne School in Dorset; course info can be found here. For Conservatoire students, graduates and harpists working on competition programmes, recitals and creative projects, Eleanor hosts Intensive Study days and mini courses (2 or 3 days) at her home studio or online.
