Devon Harp Centre’s retail shop is now open Thursdays (closed this Thursday, 26th August), Fridays and Saturdays 12.00 – 5.00 pm, but we can open most other days by appointment if you want to try out a harp, or for servicing/repairs. And we can still post strings and accessories, and answer queries by email 7 days per week.
We have installed a Winix air purification system in the teaching room, and have recommenced teaching one-to-one lessons again, but all group lessons are cancelled until the pandemic reduces substantially – we will keep reviewing the situation.
For the safety of our customers (many of whom are shielding) and staff, we ask that customers still use the antibacterial hand gel dispenser on entry. Please bring with you your own face covering and use it while in the shop. All instruments and strings are wiped down after use with antibacterial wipes as are card readers and other touchable surfaces.
Thank you for your patience, everyone !
The Devon Harp Centre is located in the High Street of one of Devon’s oldest market towns, Totnes.
Totnes is a historic town full of musicians, artists, potters and craftspeople – there are plenty of small independent shops and cafes, and it is a great place to relax and enjoy a coffee after a harp lesson.
We rent and sell lever harps, lyre harps, healing harps and harp sheet music, and we have a calm and peaceful teaching studio where you can have just one single 30 minute ‘taster’ session for £18, or further full 50 minute lessons for £30 each – regular or occasional – whichever suits you best.
Learning to play the harp is not difficult – reading music is not always necessary. It does not have to be expensive either. The harp is one of the most beautiful instruments – its healing sounds are recognised by music therapists all over the world, and learning to play harp is a very enjoyable and satisfying journey. At the Devon Harp Centre, we play and love harps, and will do our best to show you what a magical experience learning to play the harp can be.
