Eleanor's news

Hello and welcome to my website. If you are a harpist looking for lessons or coaching, I have (Jan '24) opened up a few lesson times. Please see my Teaching page for my online calendar where you can book straight in. 

EXCITING AWARD I am thrilled to announce that I have won the UKHA (United Kingdom Harp Association) Creative Fund to deliver a Bollywood hybrid (live and online) Workshop with tabla player Mendi Singh. Stay tuned for this, to be held on Sunday 3rd March at Pilgrim Harps' (new) showroom in Horley, Surrey.

Eleanor is also pleased to be tutoring online for the wonderful 'Little Harp Social' franchise, devised by Keziah Thomas with unique books, backing tracks and other learning materials. Eleanor is currently teaching level 2 online and looks forward to taking level one again in the spring! All in a fun and social way online via zoom - enquire with Keziah at hello@littleharpsocial.com!
