Merchiston Courses - Classroom Space


This course will encourage harpers to focus attention on building and analysing their technique alongside ways to extend the range of exercises, warm-ups, stretches and technical prowess. There will be in-depth technical analysis as well as learning how to use technical practice creatively so that it is fun and rewarding as well as having a positive impact. Gillian will spend some time one-on-one with participants to help assess each individual's approach to improving strength, ability and speed.
