What Janet's Skype pupils thought:

'For sure I've learned more from you than anyone. I full heartedly love lessons, its my favourite part of the week'

Sarah L., Oregon

Let me say how much I enjoyed Tuesdays harp lesson.  It brought back a tidal wave of great memories all centered around your harp instruction.

Connie C., Okanagen Falls, BC

"I had been playing the harp for six years before I started with Janet and after one year with her my repertoire has tripled and I have developed skills I never thought I’d have. Learning through Skype caused there to be no interruption in lessons when quarantine started and has been really helpful as my parents don’t have to drive the harp long distances. My sister and I have found it much easier to learn new pieces for choir and other events thanks to Janet’s teaching technique"

Katie (16 )and sister Chloe (10) O'S., Kildare

What the course participants thought:

'Janet makes everyone feel relaxed in her well equipped harp studio and seamlessly adjusts group work to fit each individual. A great mixture of technical exercises, new tunes and tackling accompaniment. The traditional Irish music session in the evening was thoroughly enjoyable and inspirational. Great music, great company and great food. I learnt a lot and looking forward to attending again in the future' 

Jill B., Liverpool


I used to try and learn the right-hand and left-hand parts of a tune and then struggle to put them together. Then I went to Janet’s weekend workshop and everything became clearer and easier. Janet explained how chords work and showed me some easy chords and how to play them in a variety of ways to accompany the tune.  The workshop was fun and relaxed. Players of different abilities could join in at their own level and the workshop gave me confidence to play with others, including more experienced players. I am now enjoying my harp much more. Thanks Janet, I will definitely be coming to more of your workshops.

Also, please could I book on to the feb weekend if you have space? 

Isabelle F., London


‘I have just experienced four incredible weeks of total immersion harp studies.  Honestly, I absolutely loved every minute of it and I’d do it all again in a heartbeat.  I was exposed to wonderful stories of Irish history, amazing music, fabulous people, an incredible venue with excellent cuisine and your thoughtful curriculum complete with teachers on your team who are second to none.  Thank you Janet, and thanks to everyone for your contributions towards this magnificent learning experience.  You’re all forever in my heart.’ 

Connie C., Okanagen Falls, BC


‘Janet, you’re my champion – Grainne H and Cormac DeB both said I would do great with you, and I did!  Loved my 3 weeks with you this year as well as my week last year.  Coming back again next year for sure!’ 
Hank H', Arkansas, USA


This was my second time and worth every inch of the distance.  I’m taking a life-ful of teaching skills home with me as well as great music and memories’   
Christine M., Adelaide, Australia


‘What a great harp week.  Tanja got a lot from it and we’ll be back…’
 Jed & Tanja, Norway
