Please label all kit items 
Please be assured that Harmonica teachers check our music activity area at the end of each session to ensure nothing has been left behind. If an item of kit is found, it will be handed to the school office. Occasionally children can leave a music session with somebody else’s kit by mistake. In each case, the situation can be swiftly remedied if kit items are marked or labelled with their owner’s name. Your help is appreciated.

All Shook Up
A reminder that every Harp Academy student should bring the following kit items to their harmonica sessions: Harmonica / A4 Pocket Folder / Notebook & Pen

Richard On The Radio

As part of this year’s harmonica festival, Harpin’ By The Sea, Hanna Neter from BBC Radio Sussex visited Harp Academy’s Richard Taylor for an early morning music lesson during the Alison Fearns breakfast show.

In less than half an hour, Hanna was playing When The Saints Go Marching In and enjoying her new found musical skills. You can hear how Richard, Hanna and Alison got on right here.
