Learn to Play the Harp the Hands On Way

We think that the traditional way to learn to play harp, i.e. weekly or fortnightly lessons, is not only unnecessarily expensive, but also not the best way to learn.

You can join our subscription web site for just £20 a month, or £40 a month if you also rent a harp from us (plus deposit and p&p). For this you get ongoing access to online video lessons which you can watch whenever suits you.

You’ll start off with videos showing you how to play simple songs and exercises, and each month you’ll build on what you’ve learned to progressively harder songs and techniques. The course will teach you all you need to be a self sufficient intermediate harper.

We have created a method called the Hands On Technique which simplifies the theory and makes your learning process much more hands on.

The lessons are suitable for complete beginners-videos are close up on Morwenna’s hands while she talks through first where to place your fingers, and then which order to pluck the strings in.

You honestly will be surprised at how quickly you can go from being a complete beginner to being able to play a simple melody. And over the length of the course you’ll learn gradually more sophisticated pieces of music, mixed with exercises as you develop as a harpist.

You’ll learn to:

  • TUNE YOUR HARP
  • PLAY A WIDE VARIETY OF PIECES, INCLUDING
    TRADITIONAL CELTIC CLASSICS, MODERN POP SONGS,
    CHRISTMAS CAROLS, CHILDREN’S SONGS
    AND MANY OTHER GENRES.
  • LEARN A MELODY BY EAR
  • CREATE YOUR OWN ACCOMPANIMENT TO THE MELODY
    WITH YOUR SECOND HAND
  • WRITE YOUR OWN MUSIC
  • IF YOU WANT TO, YOU’LL LEARN HOW TO READ MUSIC,
    ALTHOUGH IT IS ALSO POSSIBLE TO GO THROUGH
    THE COURSE WITHOUT THIS IF YOU CHOOSE-MANY OF
    THE BEST MUSICIANS DON’T READ MUSIC!
  • PLAY CHORDS TO ACCOMPANY SINGING
  • PLAY IN DIFFERENT KEYS
