A beginner series of 3 two-hour sessions Sat July 14, 21, 28, 2018 - 10 am - 12 noon

If you've thought of taking lessons but want a little try-on, or want a kickstart so you can go to Wells, this is the class for you. You can come to the studio, but this class will be conducted on-line as Well. Students will log-in using Zoom and I'll be able to talk to you individually. Small class size. You need a harp and good internet connection. You'll receive a pdf package of learning materials.  email me for details.

Duncan Adult Ensemble -  Registration for Sept - June 2018-19. Classes are approximately 2 per month. See calendar page for dates.

Want to teach, but not sure how to start? Or are you an experienced teacher looking for new materials for beginners? Marilyn's students are known for their fine musicianship and great technique - here is how and where it begins. 

Class meets approx every 2 weeks from Sept 14 to Dec.7th for 1 1/2 hours. Classes are recorded so you can review and make notes later. There is a wealth of material to cover, mostly in Harp Start Book 1, but with additional exercises and repertoire included. Registrants receive a book especially formatted to allow for lots of note-taking, so you'll be ready to teach. If you are new to teaching, it is an ideal situation to find at least one student to practice on during the course!

Students are welcome to attend in-person in the Duncan Studio, but most students will be on-line. Interactions and questions work well for small classes using the Zoom platform.

This course repeats the one offered at the Nanaimo Conservatory of Music in 2017-18. Level 2 will begin in January.
