Tuition, Mentoring & Workshops
Tuition, Mentoring & Workshops for Harp, Piano and Music Theory.
For nearly 25 years, I have been tutoring at various Fèisean across Scotland, The Edinburgh International Harp Festival, The Gordon Gaitherin as well as teaching private lessons on clarsach, piano and music theory.
As part of my degree at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (formerly the RSAMD) I did a Techniques of Teaching course which gave me a great understanding of all elements of teaching. The tutor training course run by Fèisean Nan Gaidheal taught all aspects needed to be a well-rounded tutor while and I have also attended the Dare to be a Teacher workshop run by The Clarsach Society and the Edinburgh International Harp Festival.
Through the Youth Music Initiative, I have given fun and educational workshops in schools across Scotland and I am an alumna, mentor and trainer for Live Music Now Scotland, offering mentoring and confidence-boosting workshops to new recruits.
Please get in touch if you are interested in private lessons (online or in person) or if you require me to tutor at a harp festival, event or summer school.

“Jennifer has brought a wealth of knowledge and experience to several Fèis Ghallaibh workshops over the years. She is always cheerful, enthusiastic and committed to sharing her knowledge and is an excellent tutor, having an easy and friendly rapport with her students. I would highly recommend Jennifer as a Clàrsach Tutor ~ either with private lessons or as part of a group. Jennifer is super-friendly and very approachable.”Christine Stone, Fèis Ghallaibh Chairperson
“Jennifer has taken the time to get to know me and she can tell when I need a break in the lesson or if I’m struggling and haven’t told her. I would highly recommend Jennifer as a teacher because she is kind, patient and has really helped me learn over the years and is an amazing teacher.”Lucy, 16
