About Harriet

Public liability insurance of £5 million
Harriet is a professional harpist and woodwind specialist based in Rutland.

HARP Harriet has been playing the harp since 2004 when she saw a picture of one at school and thought it looked pretty! She began her studies with Audrey Douglas and in 2007 moved to study at the Royal College of Music Junior Department under the tutelage of Daphne Boden. At RCMJD Harriet played in the Sinfonia and Harp Ensemble. She was a member of the London Schools' Symphony Orchestra. Undoubtedly the highlight of Harriet's career was playing for HRH Prince of Wales on his visit to RCM as President. Harriet has played in many concert halls around the country, and abroad including Symphony Hall Birmingham, Leeds Town Hall, The Barbican and at La Mortella, the home of William Walton in Italy. Harriet is a deeply musical harpist who aims to create a story with every piece she plays. She is equally at home with classical repertoire and popular music. She is able to cater her music to the needs of you and your guests at your event, be it corporate, a party or your wedding. CLARINET Harriet has been playing the clarinet since the age of 8 and became a Music Scholar at Oakham School age 11. Here she had many musical opportunities which have helped formed her musical preferences, including leading the school Big Band. In 2007, she commenced her studies at the Royal College of Music Junior Department where she studied clarinet with Guy Cowley. There she also played in the Saxophone Ensemble, Clarinet Choir and Symphony Orchestra. Her final concert with RCMJD was a memorable occasion at St. John's Smith Square, London. Age 16, Harriet auditioned for the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and was offered a place at audition. She began her studies in 2011 with John Cushing, former principal clarinet of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, and saxophone with Lawrence Gill. While studying at RCS, Harriet took part in many varied projects including Wind Orchestra, Plug (RCS's contemporary music festival), operas, Symphony Orchestra, chamber music and musicals. It was the latter that made an impression on Harriet and she was lucky enough to be invited to play in the band for RCS's productions of The Addams Family and The Girl Who at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2014. She has also played on Children in Need and for the RCS's productions of West Side Story, Legally Blonde and Carousel. While at RCS, Harriet took part in masterclasses with Timothy Lines, Claudio Conti, Matthew Hunt and Michael Collins as well as playing with the Orchestra of Scottish Opera, The Oracle Ensemble and The Royal Scottish National Orchestra. She also took part in a tour of Tuscany with Raucous Rossini, a student led opera project aimed at discovering Rossini's shorter operas!
