Harriet has taught harp workshops all around the world in several different languages and at folk festivals across the UK from Shetland to Wales to Southern England to the Isle of Man.

She is a regular guest tutor at the Harfentreffen Harp Festival in Germany (2010, 2012, 2014) and at the Proitzer Muhle Harfentage Festival, Wendland, Germany (2015, 2016). She has also taught at the Bardoneccia Harp Festival in Italy (2014) and the Dinan International Harp Festival in Brittany, France (2015).

She has taught workshops for the Clarsach Society in Northumberland, Wales, the Peak District and the Lake District as well as running harp days with many different harpists around the country. She recently was a guest at the Coleg Telyn Cymru harp course in Llangrannog, Ceredigion.

Along with Katherine Thomas and Gwenan Gibbard, Harriet helps to run the annual Harp Summer School in Glasbury near Hay on Wye (sponsored by Glasbury Arts and Theatr Brycheiniog).

Over the last 5 years they have worked with other international harp teachers including Diego Laverde, Lily Neill, Maire ni Chathasaigh, Hannah Stone and Eleanor Turner for 4 days of classes, masterclasses and concerts culminating in a massed harp concert at Theatr Brycheiniog in Brecon. Harpists have attended the course from all around the world.

School work

Harriet works regularly in schools, both with the mid Wales “Artists in Schools” programme for Aberystwyth Arts Centre (since 2007) and for one-off events doing concerts and workshops for children around England and Wales.

She has given over 150 participatory concerts in schools and special schools as part of Yehudi Menuhin’s “Live Music Now” scheme between 2005-2008. Because of that experience she is very used to working with children with special needs and now trains new musicians on the Live Music Now scheme.
