Karen is teaching a weekend course on 6th & 7th April as part of the Edinburgh International Harp Festival aimed at elementary/intermediate players. There will be two sessions each day 1-2.30pm and 4.30-6pm
Focusing mainly on Scottish and Gaelic tunes and airs, we will look at music written by Scottish women at various points in history. There are many female tunesmiths and composers working in the traditional scene today but this course will introduce you to the work of those who went before. Essential elements of arranging – harmony, voicings, rhythms and ornamentation will be explored in these new arrangements. Written music will be provided from the start if wished but the course will also be taught phrase by phrase by ear, accommodating all levels of reading and learning styles.
The course costs £68 and can be booked here
