Harp Centre Australia and the Harp Queensland of Society are offering a 3 hours workshop with Alice Giles on Monday May 25th, 11am for 11.30 start (details above). BYO lunch!


The workshop will be in two parts -


1. 11.30am— A teaching workshop highlighting important aspects of teaching beginners as well as advanced students. This 75 minute workshop is designed for teachers (but is open to all interested harpists), and will be based on Alice’s wide experience of teaching around the world.


Alice has just recorded an extensive teaching video together with the renowned American harpist Heidi Lehwalder which will be published later this year. Alice will share some of Heidi’s teachings which apply to all schools of harp playing, not limited to one style (eg French, Salzedo, etc)



2. 1.30 pm— A 75 minute master class with Alice for interested students / professionals.


Please contact Jill Atkinson to register your commitment to playing at this class,


to reserve your place as numbers are restricted. Also please advise as to whether you are


prepared to bring your own harp.
