'I am so grateful for the rigorous and varied training I had from the Harp Department - I couldn’t have asked for a better foundation for building my career as a musician and harpist.'Anne Denholm, alumna
From Baroque to jazz, our harpists are trained to take on anything the music profession requires.
The harp is thoroughly integrated into the life and work of the Academy, with students collaborating regularly with composers and other instrumentalists, and new works being commissioned every year by the Harp Department. Our professors include celebrated performers and recording artists. You will have the opportunity to work with specialists in orchestral and contemporary repertoire, early harp, jazz and opera as well as distinguished visiting professors.
Academy harpists have won prizes in international competitions and many alumni hold orchestral and teaching positions worldwide.
