Quinlan Hames started playing lever harp at 9 years old being taught at Christian College Geelong. Quinlan is a Victorian College of the Arts Secondary School graduate as of 2022, taught by Jacinta Dennett. Over the years, Quinlan has performed in groups and solo for festivals, special and private events throughout Victoria. He has performed regularly at the National Celtic Festival and was deeply inspired by his experience on the KIN and Community film project, performing in its premiere. He loves innovation in music including many styles of modern music and production/composition.
Private lever harp lessons for children and adults of an absolute beginner to intermediate level. My teaching philosophy is to make music accessible through providing sound technical fundamentals whilst cultivating an individual’s voice. I am able to teach a variety of styles including through ear training. Lessons are tailored to the needs and goals of individual students.
