Guest Tutors

One of Shelley’s aims with Dynamic Harps is to create the opportunity for members to access tuition from a variety of harpists. Studying and being inspired by a variety of harpists really is key to becoming a well rounded musician. So since 2104 Dynamic Harps have been very excited to have worked with guest tutors, below you can see some of the wonderful and inspiring harpists we have worked with over the past years. This page was written by Alys, Student Dynamic Harps Member (July 2016)
