What the participants thought:

‘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.’

‘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’
