I have more than five years of experience teaching kids from an early age and adults of all levels. Each lesson is tailored to help the pupil achieve their full potential and suit the their individual needs, that being working towards exams or playing just for fun.
I always give a friendly and fun approach to my lessons. I can prepare students for the ABRSM exams and also teach music theory and aural skills. If preferred, I can also give the lesson in Spanish.
I am a professional harpist based in South-East London currently doing my Master's degree Trinity Laban Conservatory of Music and Dance. I also own two music degrees, from the Conservatorio Superior de Música de Aragón, in Spain, and a Bachelor's degree (hons), from Trinity Laban Conservatory of Music and Dance. I am actively playing with orchestras around London and Spain as well as doing solo and chamber work. I combine my playing with a passion for teaching and all kinds of educational activities, including carrying out workshops at schools, private teaching, community music and group teaching. I have taught several pupils from a very young age to mature students, all of them achieving excellent progress and results. I can teach pedal and lever harp. I have a pedal harp at home, were we can have the lessons if preferred by the pupil.
Laura is an amazing teacher. She's dedicated, nice, and, most important, patient. I started taking classes with her when I was just a beginner, but I feel like I've improved a lot and I've gained more confidence in my harp playing skills. Cannot recommend her enough!
Tengo la suerte de conocer a Laura desde hace muchos años. Me parece una arpista, pedagoga y persona genial. Tiene muy buen carácter, un gran sentido del humor y es increíblemente paciente. Además, se adapta a todo tipo de necesidades que tengas. Recomiendo a Laura sin dudarlo a todos los que queráis aprender o iniciaros en el instrumento, ya que veréis vuestro progreso en un ambiente muy agradable.
Laura is clearly very skilled and knows how to pass that on to her students at any level. She goes at any pace that suits the student (even teaching to read sheet music along. the way) and pays attention to all the small details which make a difference while playing. Laura even takes extra time out of her week to assist her students (e.g. offering to help you find a harp to buy, as she knows exactly where to go!). I would recommend Laura to anyone who wants to learn or improve their harp skills :)
I took up harp lessons in retirement and had no previous experience of music. Laura made me feel relaxed and allowed me to progress at my own pace. She is very amenable and an excellent harpist. I started with a 12 string harp which was a Xmas present and I have now bought a 34 string lever harp with Laura’s help. She came along to the music shop to help me choose it. She’s very patient, thorough and adapts to the pace of her students. I would unreservedly recommend her to anyone who is looking to learn how to play the harp.
