Harmonica Home Learning

Add a musical highlight to to your week

While extra-curricular activities remain off-limits, many children have taken up the opportunity to enjoy music making with Harp Academy online with Zoom. The harmonica lends itself perfectly to this platform.

Some children are learning by themselves, while others are enjoying sessions with a best friend, or a circle of classmates. If you’d like to enrol in online lessons send us me an email, or get in touch via our Contact Page.

Team up with your best friend
A great way to keep in touch and have fun together. Paired online harmonica tuition is £20.00 for half an hour on Zoom (£10.00 per child).

Weekly group harmonica lessons
A fun and affordable way to socialise with your classmates. Our group rate for half an hour on Zoom is £25.00 for the first three children. Thereafter it’s £5.00 for each additional group member. The total is divided evenly amongst everyone.

One-to-One Harmonica Lessons
The best way to make fast progress. Individual online harmonica tuition is £15.00 for a half hour session on Zoom.

Enrolments – Spring 2021

Harmonica Teaching 
Harp Academy has resumed operations in schools in a limited capacity and in full adherence with Covid-19 safety guidelines. If we are active in your school, you will have been informed. For several schools however, it is unlikely that we will be returning for a while yet. This situation is under constant review, so we will post updates here and on our FaceBook page.

Free online tutorials ending
As we enter 2021, we regret we will no longer be offering a free online tutorial service. We managed to keep this going since the original lockdown in March 2020, however numbers have steadily dwindle. We are therefore turning our attention to paid 1:1 learning instead.

One to one tuition 
If we have not yet resumed activities in your school and you would like to try 1:1 learning online or at Harp Academy HQ in Hove, please let us know and we will be happy help you.

Teaching Plan 2021
In schools where we have resumed our clubs and small group activities, we will continue to celebrate Diversity by learning songs from around the world and investigate our musical element Duration.

FLASHBACK: Paddle Round The Pier 2019

Summer harmonica fun for all the family…
It was great to see so many harmonauts at Paddle Round The Pier 2019. We’re forever grateful to everyone who turned out; mums, dads, relatives and pets!

Paddle is Europe’s largest beach festival and our annual show is the perfect way to end the harmonica year. 2019 was extremely hot, but our harmonauts still blew the roof off. Dressed as Pirates and Sailors they were fantastic. Next year our dress code is Star Wars!
