Harp Village 2014

Dates for your diary

Friday Sept 19th - Sunday 21st

This year we have commissioned a very special piece of music about Cromarty and homecoming which will form the basis for the workshop tuition at the Harp Village. Students will learn the tune and will all get together to perform it at the final concert on Sunday 21st September at the Stables.

This is a unique opportunity to take part in this very special event

This year's tutors are Corrina Hewat, Patsy Seddon, Mary Macmaster, Heather Yule and Una Monaghan from Ireland.

 

If you're a budding harp player, a player of some experience or someone who has always wanted to try but haven't taken those first steps yet, the Cromarty Harp Village is the place to be in September.

Application form will be available to download

First of all, which of these categories would describe you best?

BEGINNER 

You have very little experience of playing harp at all. You have had relatively few lessons, you may require help with basic technique. All Beginner workshops will be in the East Hall, Cromarty and your tutor will be Heather Yule


ELEMENTARY 

You can already perform simple tunes, require further help in consolidating basic technique and wish to work slowly and carefully. Elementary workshops will be at the Stables and each tutor will be teaching you over the weekend and you'll have a second class with Corrina Hewat


EARLY INTERMEDIATE 

You have been playing a few years, may need some pointers on technique, and wish to work at a moderate pace with the option of slowing down if need be! You will have a second class with Mary Macmaster

.

INTERMEDIATE AND BEYOND 

You already have good technique and can work at a moderate pace and wish to stretch yourself. All Intermediate and Advanced workshops will be at the Stables and your second class will be with Patsy Seddon


Please Note:  LEVELS ARE A GUIDE, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ASK IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION REGARDING ABILITY OR WHICH CLASS YOU SHOULD BE IN.
