Harp

The harp has played a vital role at the Academy since its earliest days and is now more in demand than ever. Our comprehensive harp course provides relevant training for the next generation of professional harp players. From orchestra to song accompaniment, from baroque to jazz, our harpists are equipped to take on anything the music profession requires.

The Academy offers Principal Study for both undergraduate and postgraduate harpists.
