Rooted in Irish traditional music, style, repertoire and method - Janet Harbison's Harp Summer-schools invite you to experience 'how we do it traditionally'.   
Always fun and informative, accessible and enriching, Janet guarantees to positively impact your skills, creativity, understanding and performing confidence.

Join us for a joyful week of harping from one of Ireland's most experienced and successful teachers and professional trainers.  Significantly progress from whatever stage you are at now – whether you are a total beginner or performing professional.

Immerse yourself in the magnificent setting of west Donegal at the heart of a rich, rural Irish community and experience traditional music at its most natural...   

Harp tuition over 5 or 6 days with daily walks and trips out in the locality - on the Wild Atlantic Coast and in Dungloe town, in Glenveigh National Park or the Green Glens of Gweedore - and we will take a trip to Gola Island on Wednesday afternoon (weather permitting!)  experiencing many of the famous places from the songs we will learn.....
