Dare to be a teacher!

Could you be a harp teacher? 
Could you facilitate your local harp group?
Could you share your knowledge, experience and enjoyment in playing?


If the answer to any of these questions is ‘yes’, then come along to this FREE course hosted by the Highland Branch of The Clarsach Society.

In this course Charlotte Petersen will share her experience of teaching students of all ages and abilities, individually and in groups. She will share ideas on aspects of teaching and discuss how to use your individual knowledge and ability to help keen students in your area get started on playing our wonderful instrument.

Supported by the National Office of The Clarsach Society, this event is free and open to members of the Society only. It aims to expand on a similar course held at EIHF14 and so it will be of interest to anyone who attended this course as well as novice teachers and/or group leaders.
