Harp Workshops
Improving skills for playing on the harp

Instructor

Each year Alison runs a series of workshops for harpists who want to improve their harping skills and share their passion for Celtic harp music with kindred spirits. These are practical hands-on workshops that impart knowledge that simply cannot be learned easily from a book. Come join Alison and have some fun. The local workshops are limited in attendance, so book early.

 

  Workshops  

Alison is offering very affordable 4-week "harp tasting" courses through various Victoria seniors centres. Small harps are provided and in additon can be rented for home practice.

The next is at the Monterey Centre in Oak Bay with four hands-on sessions with very friendly little lap harps in a supportive, fun group of co-learners. These classes are for the very beginner and note-reading is not required. You will learn basic technique, tuning and some simple tunes. Harps will be provided for in-class use. There is the option to rent a small harp from the instructor for the length of the course for optional home practise.

Monterey Centre Harp Workshop

Contact Oak Bay Recreation - Monterey Centre or Alison for more information.


Alison also has workshops annually in her studio. Alison ocassionally holds informal monthly group lessons near Sidney BC. Enquire if you are interested.
