Mike Baldwin biography
Author Biography
Mike Baldwin trained as a harp maker at London Metropolitan University during the early 1990s where he researched nineteenth century U.K. harp patents. He worked briefly for Pilgrim Harps before retraining as a teacher. He returned to London Metropolitan University in September 2008 to resume his studies and is currently writing an MA Dissertation investigating the papers of a nineteenth century harp maker in London. Mike still occasionally makes harps though his interests lie in repairing and restoring single-action and grecian harps. He currently teaches children with learning difficulties in West London.
