Harpsichord Lessons in London by WKMT

Harpsichord lessons delivered by passionate teachers

At WKMT we believe the tradition that comes together with the Harpsichord cannot be dismissed or forgotten. Based on the later is that we have opened our Harpsichord department. 


Our Harpsichord Teachers

One of our WKMT scholars, Prof. Avelino Vazquez Groba and the head of WKMT Camberwell, Cristina Guerra, are in charge of our new Harpsichord department.
Finding the perfect harpsichord teacher in London can prove to be quite a challenge. 
The harpsichord is an instrument studied by a minority of music students, and therefore independent harpsichord teachers are scarce. At WKMT we have organized a solid harpsichord teacher department which can consistently teach our Harpsichord students. 
Our teachers are highly qualified and count with above ten years of experience teaching students of all levels and ages. 



We currently host our beautiful Harpsichord at St. Cuthbert’s Philbeach Gardens, our concert venue. The atmosphere is ideal in terms of the room's temperature and humidity. The size of the music room allows student and teacher to gain the right acoustic insight which encourages an in-depth professional work of polyphonic passages.


We encourage all harpsichord students in London who are looking to start taking lessons in London to get in touch so we can arrange a quick start. 


Our fabulous “Delf” grand Harpsichord is a handcrafted instrument produced following the most rigorous Italian procedures. Of English manufacture, this instrument counts with two different registers. Avelino Vazquez Groba is in charge of keeping this instrument up to the highest of playable standards.
