Merchiston Courses - Classroom Space


This course is intended for adult learners who have had only a few basic lessons on the harp, either at the complete beginner’s class at the Harp Festival or elsewhere, and want to progress a bit further.  Over the five days you will learn some simple melodies and consolidate the basic hand position.  We will also explore some slightly more advanced harp techniques and have fun trying out left hand chord patterns.

Tutor: Heather Yule - Heather has taught and performed on the clarsach throughout Scotland and at various events in the USA and Cape Breton, Canada. Heather is involved in the Scottish traditional storytelling scene, which has its base in Edinburgh's Scottish Storytelling Centre. She has performed in Europe, Scandinavia and North America as a traditional storyteller, enchanting audiences of all ages with her unique way of combining harp music and story.
