**Patreon page just launched!**
As live performances and face to face teaching can't go ahead during the pandemic Karen has just launched a Patreon page for both general chat and exclusive behind-the -scenes look at the life of a modern harper, and online teaching. Learning pledges start at £5 a month for a pre-recorded teaching video and sheet music pdf, and go through various price points and levels, including one to one zoom lessons - you can find it here.
Karen teaches both children and adults at all levels - giving instruction in a variety of harp styles including fingerpad technique for gut-strung instruments, fingernail techniques such as those from the Robert ap Huw manuscript (suitable for various types of harp especially for ornamentation), and gut-strung levered clarsach, wire-strung, bray and Paraguayan harp techniques and tunes.
