T28 Pedal Power

5-days from Sat 6th to Wed 10th April - 1:00pm

Merchiston Courses - Classroom Space


Get your pedal playing shoes on and join us for an action packed course. Eira is an enthusiastic teacher, who will inspire! You will go away with a practice plan, technical confidence, repertoire lists and a special addition to your c.v.! On this year’s menu: a dash of technique, a sprinkling of effects and a trio of ensemble pieces. The highlight will be a concert performance on Wednesday afternoon. Do you want to perform at the Edinburgh International Harp Festival?  Come join us for your debut! (Pedal harps can be provided for those travelling long distances - apply early!)

Tutor: Eira Lynn Jones - Eira is a versatile musician whose eclectic career includes orchestral work, recordings, publications, commissions and chamber music. Widely regarded as one of the UK’s leading harp teachers, she is Head of Harp at the RNCM, and has led workshops in Iceland, Denmark, USA and Sweden. China and South Africa are next! Her solo albums have achieved notable success: “I love the album. The diversity of music, a very accomplished technique, and your heart coming through” (Alan Stivell).
