Harp Teacher Charlton, SE London - Claire Iselin

Methodology

Welcome to my profile! I am a committed, enthusiastic and friendly harp teacher who can teach all levels and a range of genres. Let's make great music together.
Music starts when speech stops!

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I can teach pedal harps and celtic harp to all ages, levels and abilities, also music theory, chamber music and orchestra repertoire, as well as preparing students for orchestral auditions. Although my speciality is classical music and I am happy to work on any style of music (pop, jazz, contemporary, background music) with my students.
The goal is to learn the harp in a healthy way, to explore sounds, feelings on the instrument, and to have fun!

- Tell me about your qualifications.

MMus : Distinction in performance at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance
BMus ( Hons) : 1st Class Honours at Trinity College of Music
Also achieved her IVT teaching diploma whilst studying for her Masters.
Claire has studied art of teaching, language of music, Improvisation, and conducting there.

Prizes/Awards
John Marson Prize for 'an outstanding and creative young musician' 2008
1st joint prize in North London Competition in 2009
1st prize of Rehearsal Orchestra Competition and finalist of Soloist Competition playing Ginastera Harp Concerto 2012
Workshipful Musicians Society's Silver Medal 2012
Isabel Bond Gold Medal 2013

Originally from France, she did her study at Ecole de Musique de Colmar and Conservatoire National et Regional de Strasbourg.

- How much do you charge?

First contact/lesson (30min): Free
Lessons at my house can be 30, 45 mins or an hour long and either weekly fortnightly or monthly to suit the pupil.
30min: £18 - 1h: £35
I do travel to some students, but please get in contact with me to talk about it.

- Where do you teach?

Preferably at my home but I can be flexible, so please get in contact with me.

- When are you available?

I can be available every day and will be helpful to find the best time for you.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages from children to adults. However, she generally will not take students under the age of six or seven. This can depend on the child and she will look at it on a case by case basis. Concerning the very young children I would like to have the parents support during lessons.
Please get in touch if you would like to discuss lessons for a younger child.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

It depends on the student's requirements. Claire is happy teaching just for pleasure or for grades.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

The harp is an elegant, charming, and magic instrument. Please do not feel scared about it. If you are an adult and it was your childhood dream... maybe it is time to realize it ;-) or if you recognize yourself saying: I am not good on this instrument, I can not learn it. To those people, Claire would say: Come to try it over and let's go to find out its secret together.

Experience

Claire freelances in London with several symphony orchestras, she has an extensive experience as a solo player, chamber music and orchestra player.- extensive experience in teaching and in addition to her private pupils she is deputy and assistent teacher at Trinity Laban Music Conservaoitre - Junior department since 2007, and has given Masterclasses in Illzach, France in 2010.
