A note from Aine:


Aine here. I'm really looking forward to meeting with you!

Over the weekend I'll be focusing on two areas namely meditation music using pieces from the Celtic Tradition and Singing with the harp. And I look forward to seeing where we go with this over the course of a couple of days.

Have your questions ready and let's get harping!

Warmest & best, Aine
