Ellen has a small private teaching practice. She tutors children and adults of all abilities, from complete novices to experienced musicians, with styles of teaching appropriate to the aims of the individual pupil. She encourages every opportunity to perform, be it music exams, festivals, workshops or courses. Lessons are given on an individual basis and usually from her home near Tunbridge Wells.

She has coached young harpists preparing for County orchestral concerts and been an assistant tutor at a residential harp course for The Clarsach Society.

Ellen has given workshops in nursery, primary and secondary schools, introducing the harp to children who have not previously experienced the instrument. A staunch advocate of children’s nursery rhymes, she also enjoys performing her own arrangements of some of England’s best-loved nursery rhymes.
