Janet's recital presented by Camac Harps

Ireland’s multi-award-winning ‘Queen of the Harp’ continues to perform, compose and teach, sharing her unrivalled expertise and experience in all from regular teaching (live from her studios in Warwick (UK) and monthly in Donegal (Ireland) to a world-wide online practise that has proved very popular. From her Grammy Award winning direction of the (student) Belfast Harp Orchestra and later the (professional) Irish Harp Orchestra, she also coaches harp ensembles and orchestras and their leaders in many countries.   
 
Janet’s particular specialisms are traditional (oral) teaching (‘by ear’); special needs training, teacher coaching and palliative harping. Her most popular workshops at festivals and summer-schools are: ‘Everybody Included Session Participation’, ‘The Art of Accompaniment’, ‘Developing Style with Ornamentation and Variation’, ‘Exploring the Harp Repertoire of Ireland and Britain’, ‘Advancing Trad Technique’, ‘Stagecraft for Harpers’ and ‘Getting Creative - Improvisation’.
