In NORTHERN IRELAND

Sunday March 1st, 2020

 SYMPOSIUM FOR HARP TEACHERS, BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND 

"Irish Harp, by note, rote and reason" Methods of teaching explored and explained

At University of Ulster, Belfast Campus


This is a first event focusing on the teaching of the Irish harp.  'By note' is the classical training system where learning is literacy based; 'By Rote' is the more usual 'learning by ear' system which is about imitating the teacher in a fixed format; and learning 'By Reason' is based on the ideal of 'Music as a Language' taught organically and intuitively as a creative improvised art.  Organised in association with Ulster University and sponsored by Harp Ireland.

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.’ 
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 Morphett, Adelaide, Australia
