Finding your own pace is important, so do resist the urge to rush ahead or bite off too much in one go!  And do try to both watch and play along regularly.

Each Course is a similar price to just one lesson with music teacher!
– and Creative Harping lessons can last a lifetime!

Because the focus of the Creative Harping Program is learning how to improvise without the need of written music, it has proven popular with musicians of all abilities. 
It has been specially created to cater both for the ‘beginner’ harpist as well as experienced players who wish to get away from just reading the dots and want to learn the art of improvisation, creating spontaneous music that flows effortlessly from one feeling to another.

“Christina Tourin is a compassionate leader in the art of creative teaching. She enables her students to bring forth the music from within, while giving them the solid foundations of musical training and technique.”

For me, to think about it all as a “cradle of sound’... Well, in my imagination it is as big as an ark to encompass all the lives you have touched, and as a result, all the lives that others have touched in turn!
