Gráinne Hambly will be teaching tunes from the Irish tradition by ear. Pieces will be chosen from a selection of Irish traditional dance tunes, airs and harper’s tunes from the 17th and 18th centuries, tailored to suit each level. We will look at how to add appropriate ornamentation and ideas for developing your own left hand arrangements. Elements of Irish style will also be discussed. Written music will be provided as back-up after the workshop.

Ailie Robertson will be teaching tunes from the Scottish tradition. We will look at dance tunes and slow airs, tailored to suit each of the 3 levels. Written music will be provided as back-up after the workshop.

Adriano Sangineto will give a workshop about “Getting the groove”, aimed at exploring the rhythmic aspect of the harp, developing that rhythmic-harmonic awareness that is essential for playing dance music. The workshop is divided into learning the basic steps of the dances (shown through the video), singing and studying the techniques on the harp. The course will deal with both Italian folk dances and original compositions of Adriano.

Tristan will be teaching some wonderful tunes from the Brittany region of France.
