Welcome to the International Harp Academy 'HarpMasters'


International Summer Harp Academy “HarpMasters” has proved its success Summer after Summer, since its establishment in 2006. Since then, harpists - celebrities, teachers and students - from all over the world come over to join a unique group of dedicated professionals to learn, inspire and establish friendships. Year after year we build a community of exchange between the world’s leading masters and young artists from all over the world all in a supportive and friendly atmosphere. With patience and dedication, HarpMasters Academy invests in the talents of young harpists, while creating, developing and promoting excellence in harp performance. This way, HarpMasters Academy offers a life-changing experience, an opportunity for learning, for sharing and for inspiration.

Here are some key qualities in which we believe and which are important for us. These have brought HarpMasters Academy recognition of the international harp community worldwide:
