Workshops & Private Tutoring

Thank you for today. The workshop had a great atmosphere…

Thanks for a lovely afternoon.  You did boost my confidence hugely today – and I feel as always that I learned so much – thank you.

Thanks for yet another enjoyable and inspiring workshop!
Putting us through our paces with singing and ensemble pieces, encouraging our listening skills with comparative listening and finally giving us a chance to perform solos in front of a friendly audience! Thank you for your time and encouragement, we are all the better players for it.

Solo Performances

“An extremely persuasive artist with immaculate tone and perfectly balanced technique, she clearly gives a great deal of attention to the shape and position of every note, resulting in a performance that is always carried along by definite and informed ideas.”  
Classical Guitar

“Elegant, vibrant and extremely talented … Her full, almost Segovian tone gave body to the polish and finesse which could only have come from a musical background such as hers.”
Classical Guitar

“Fiona Harrison took the spotlight for the much loved Concierto de Aranjuez. The beautiful sounds from her guitar were complemented perfectly by the orchestra … the concerto was met with rapturous applause…”
Salisbury Journal

“Fiona’s delicate and skilful playing on the classical guitar had the whole audience under her spell from the very start.”
Fenland Citizen

“Fiona Harrison, described on her CV as ‘a musician of lyrical expressiveness’ proved this to be no exaggeration in a truly inspirational and varied programme.”
Wisbech Standard

“Fiona’s programmes have always been exciting but this was stimulating on an even higher plane.” “Your varied programme of interesting and delightful music hit exactly the right note for our party and your delightful, easy introduction of the pieces and their composers contributed to a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere.”
Harting Music Club

“Your work was first rate and widely praised by both audiences and staff alike.”
Cultural Projects Manager, Kent County Council

“Fiona Harrison’s rendition of the Bach Cello Suite No. 1 was fantastic. Her interpretation of Carlo Domeniconi’s Koyunbaba was overpowering. If you ever want to hear so many notes played at tremolo speed without losing the melody, get her version of this piece – it will astound you.”
Oatridge International Guitar Festival

“Fiona Harrison’s virtuoso guitar playing was captivating in Rodrigo’s popular concerto …” 
Blackmore Vale Magazine 

“… a musician of great sensitivity both to her instrument and the mood of the music … gifted with a superbly confident technique.”
Hampshire Chronicle 

“We had the great pleasure of hearing the classical guitar expertly played by Fiona Harrison … throughout the work [Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez] the soloist gave a relaxed and assured performance, producing a beautiful harp-like quality of tone at times.”
