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’.

The Harbison Harp Studio at the foot of Warwick Castle

Opened September 2019

StnicholasparkLocated in the beautiful St.Nicholas Park by the River Avon and Warwick Castle, I now live in the medieval water-mill (a preserved heritage building) that served the Castle.  The mill pond is long since filled in and has become the St.Nicholas Park's car-park - and my studio entrance opens directly from the carpark.  This is a wonderful place for all my friends and fellow harp players to come visit and perhaps take a series of lessons, a week or two week course or a weekend

Warwick is Shakespeare’s county and is one of Britain’s best preserved medieval towns with the world-renowned Warwick Castle just beside us! 

The Warwick locality also boasts a vibrant Irish community full of great trad musicians who are always on call for sessions! 

Just a few minutes walk from us is the Castle Limes Hotel where we have an arrangement for our residential event participants, and the great pub across the car-park, the New Bowling Green is where we eat and have our session in the evenings. 

Warwick Castle often hosts spectacular shows of medieval entertainments – including jousting, falconry, music and more so there is a great deal to offer!
