Beginning and/or Continuing Harp Classes
Riley School of Irish Music
7 week course learning technique and Irish tunes
And if you are interested in beginning classes or just past beginning/continuing in the Irish music style the next quarter at Riley School of Music begins on March 20th and will run for 7 weeks, with the exception of April 24.
The perks of this class is small classes, songs are selected for the quarter and you get lots of review and help and you get access to lots of Irish music recordings, concerts and workshops, so if you like Irish music and the whole Irish culture, this is a nice community to join.
This coming quarter is not updated, so I’m not sure what the cost will be, it will be less than this quarter because it is 3 weeks shorter.
