Beautiful Harp is an international harpist and teacher based in Edinburgh. Her diversified repertoire includes classical, folk and jazz music. She arranges and composes jazz music for harp and has been inspired into making arrangements for the clarsach.
Beautiful Harp has been tutored by some of the very best teachers in Europe. She studied classical music with Prof. Ursula Mazurek in Poland and Prof. Helga Storck in Germany, and studied jazz with Dr Carrol McLaughlin in Arizona. She has also attended several master classes with, most notably, Isabelle Moretti, Kumiko Inoue, and jazz harpist Park Stickney.
She has achieved a Masters Degree in Art from the F. Chopin Academy of Music in Warsaw, Poland and a Masters Degree in Classical and Jazz Harp from the University of Arizona in the United States.
Beautiful Harp has performed with some major orchestras in Europe. Early in her career she played with the Young World Symphony Orchestra and, later, with the Young German Philharmonic orchestra, touring Germany and Italy. And she was a harpist with the National Opera in Warsaw and the Poznan Philharmonic Orchestra.
Beautiful Harp had a harp studio in Warsaw teaching classical and celtic harp to a number of young students. After only two years of studying her students had performed solo recitals at the National Philharmonic and the TV Concert Hall in Warsaw. A major achievement for them and a testimony to her success as a teacher.
In addition to this, Beautiful Harp has also had an extensive solo career. In the last year alone she has performed in Edinburgh, in the Ukranian National Philharmonic in Kiev, in the City Concert Hall in Tucson, and in the "Celebration Of The Harp" festival in Warsaw.
In the last two years, Beautiful Harp was a member of Harp Fusion, one of the largest harp ensembles in the world. In that time, she composed numerous arrangements for the ensemble, toured with them around Europe and the U.S., and recorded a CD and DVD.
Most recently, Beautiful Harp is becoming actively involved in the Clarsach Society in Edinburgh and is continuing her career as a performer and teacher by opening a harp studio and becoming director of a newly formed harp ensemble 'Harp Angels'.
