  It has always been a joy to teach – to introduce people to the fascinating history and technique of the harp.

During her career in Ireland, Helen taught both classical and Irish harp at the Royal Irish Academy of Music in Dublin. She established a diploma for the Irish harp, one of the first of its kind to recognise it as an instrument in its own right. Helen was also one of the founders of the internationally acclaimed annual Irish harp festival/summer school at Termonfechin. Several of her Irish students now pursue successful professional careers.

In Denmark Helen has established an adult harp group which meets regularly for ensemble practise and performance, and she has also taught many enthusiastic young harp students.
