Charlotte Seale enjoys an international reputation as a renowned teacher and leading exponent of French technique.
Her many successful students have graduated as professional harpists and hold jobs as Principal Harp in orchestras across the world, from Ireland to Brazil.
Charlotte has also enjoyed a busy career as a performer. At the age of 23 she became Principal Harp with the BBC Northern Radio Orchestra, where she stayed for 8 years, also playing regularly during this time with the Hallé Orchestra, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, the Northern Sinfonia, and the Scottish National Orchestra.
She subsequently freelanced in London and has worked regularly with all the major London orchestras, including the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, English National Opera, London Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, English National Ballet, and Ballet Rambert.
She had a flute and harp duo, which performed nationally, and broadcast both on radio and television. She has made countless concert appearances both nationally and internationally, and recorded for all the major record labels.
Charlotte is the only British harpist to have been awarded the Premier Prix with Distinction from the Conservatoire Royale de Bruxelles, where she studied under Mireille Flour, a pupil of Marcel Tournier in Paris. Prior to this she studied with Tina Bonifacio, and afterwards with Edward Witsenburg in The Hague.
She also teaches at the Purcell School of Music. Charlotte is an Honorary Associate of the Royal Academy of Music.
