Welcome to you! I am a London and Surrey based Autoharp teacher and performer. I love to play Autoharp for pleasure and to perform and introduce it to others. On these pages you will find information on Autoharps, what I can offer, links to some lovely people's webpages, live performance photos, future gig details, videos, audio recordings and a little bit more! Please explore...
I was completely new to the autoharp before starting lessons with Guy Padfield. He has taught me the basics of strumming and picking small sections of songs in a few months. After two months, I felt confident enough to take the autoharp to a local music jam and strum with other musicians. He has adapted the lessons so that we play songs that I know and like, rather than sticking to a syllabus. This has been particularly good as most existing autoharp books do not seem to cover recent pop music! I like the flexibility in lesson times and days and the proximity of the lessons to different forms of public transport. He puts time and effort into preparing material between lessons and has been very patient. He is very experienced, professional and enthusiastic. Whether autoharp is your first instrument or tenth instrument, I would recommend Guy Padfield as a teacher." M.O'shea
