Absolute Beginner's Workshops

Absolute Beginners' Workshops

Our next Absolute Beginners' workshop is currently postponed due to the current laws and guidance. We shall look to restart our beginners' workshops as soon as we are able to safely. In the mean time if you would like any information at all, about joining us, hiring a harp or just want to know more about these beautiful instruments, please do get in touch

We organise tutor-led workshops for the absolute beginner with harps provided.

We typically run two workshops a year, though we can put on more if demand is there. If you would like to attend download and complete the application form in Word format here or Pdf format here.

You do not need to be a member to attend, nor do you need to be able to read music!

The aim is to give students an introduction to playing the harp. By the end of the workshop, students can expect to have learned some understanding of basic technique and an ability to play simple chords and some simple harp tunes.

Beginner Workshops are arranged for a group of students.  A fee is charged.  The fee includes harp provided.

Harps North West  promotes these workshops for absolute beginners at a range of venues in Cumbria and Lancashire. Over the last few years, workshops were held at Over Kellet, Penrith, Samlesbury, Shap and Threlkeld. We have also held workshops at Sedbergh, Burton-in-Kendal, Whitehaven and Keswick.

"My fiancee attended the workshop last week and came back describing it as an 'idyllic way to spend an afternoon.' She was incredibly enthused about future harp lessons and joined Harps North West."
