I empower you to play music from your heart and find your own way of expressing yourself on this beautiful instrument - intuitively and from the heart, without sheet music. It is quite different from a regular harp lesson, so I refer to it as harp coaching.
What is Harp Coaching?
In harp lessons, you mainly learn new songs with each lesson and you see your teacher regularly, once a week, twice a week ... usually for years! And that's totally cool and valuable - it is just not what I offer. :)
With harp coaching we go deeper. Instead of teaching songs, I want to empower you in finding your own authentic expression in music and give you support with your personal questions, like:
Support on your creative path
I can be your muse and support you on the creative path. I create a safe and non-judgemental space for you to discover your creativity and to be with what is and where you would like to go from there. What a beautiful experience to be seen and heard! You will be inspired to bring more awareness into your music so it becomes truly alive and vibrant!
This is what you will learn:
Body, mind & flow - Mindfulness for musicians. This is about the connection between your body and the instrument and how to get into the flow so you can play intuitive and meditative music from the heart while being centered.
I only offer very few spots for harp lessons.

I believe I don't have enough talent. Maybe I am too old to start playing the harp?
There is no too old or not talented enough - you want to play, you can play!
I have never even touched a harp. I am nervous about getting started.
No problem. I have been there myself and seen it all with my students. It is okay. You are welcome just as you are. Try embracing the beginners mind. You will learn so much! Congrats for your courage to try anyway!
If you are a total beginner, I recommend to additionally see a harp teacher in your area, if possible.
How many sessions do I need?
Usually, 1-2 sessions are enough to provide you with everything you need at that moment. Some people occasionally return for check in sessions every couple of months. It is a personal choice. Book me if you need guidance. As simple as that.
Where do you teach?
I am located in Wellington, New Zealand and I teach mostly over Skype.
