Summer 2019 saw 26 harpists, ranging from age 6 to 60, meet in Bushmills Community Centre and in Portballintrae Village Hall for Beginner and Intermediate level Harp Workshops led by Katy Bustard of Causeway Harp School.
In September 2019 a new 6 week Beginners’ Harp Course will be held on Saturday mornings in Portballintrae Village Hall. This course is already fully subscribed, but keep an eye on the ‘What’s On’ page on the website, or on Facebook for details of more courses running throughout the year. Places are limited so please don’t hesitate to get in touch to book your place or to find out more.
Individual Harp Tuition is also available and pupils may work to attain qualifications in Irish Traditional Harp through the London College of Music, learn just for fun and relaxation or to achieve specific personal goals.
Group Workshops for improving and intermediate level harpists also take place at various times throughout the year. These intensive workshops are designed to not only expand repertoire and develop technique and style, but also to provide valuable opportunities to play together as a group and to meet other harpists. Our next scheduled Group Workshop is a Christmas Harp Workshop on 16th November! See the ‘What’s On’ page for more details!
Harp Taster Sessions and Beginners’ Classes for schools, community or corporate groups, or for a group of family and friends may also be arranged. Please get in touch via the website contact page for more information.
