About Stephen Dunstone

Photo: Stephen DunstoneStephen Dunstone is a composer, harpist and teacher based in Oxford. After playing the flute and piano from a tender age, then spending three years singing in the choir of Clare College Cambridge, he discovered the folk harp accidentally when he was looking for a harpsichord. It was a life-changing event: he bought the harp, abandoned the harpsichord, and never looked back.

The desire to create fun pieces for non-virtuoso pupils, and to get them all playing together, has resulted in the Harpo series of solo pieces and a steady stream of harp ensembles. These have been performed in such venues as Blenheim Palace and Windsor Castle, as well as at the Edinburgh International Harp Festival, and they’re in the repertoire of the National Youth Harp Orchestra of Great Britain.

He also plays the hammered dulcimer and has written prize-winning radio plays for the BBC.
