Piano Accordion with Addie Harper: 10 July 2023START: 10 July 2023
END: 14 July 2023
COST (STUDENT): £195
In this five-day Piano Accordion course for all abilities, you will have the opportunity to learn tunes, techniques, harmonies and chords from Caithness virtuoso Addie Harper Jnr. Addie is in regular demand as a tutor and performer throughout Scotland and beyond, and he has become a firm favourite of the Sabhal Mòr Ostaig Summer Short Courses.
Addie hails from a famous musical family, and those who take his course find he creates a relaxed and encouraging atmosphere, enjoying his calm instruction and patience; as such, he regularly draws students from all quarters. As part of the course, students are expected to perform together at the Thursday night cèilidh at the College, and although this may seem daunting for some, Addie ensures that everyone who wants to can take part onstage with the group no matter what level they are at.
As this course is running the same week as the Button Box course at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig with Fergie MacDonald MBE and Robert Nairn, there will be plenty of opportunity to play with other box players and indeed a chance to hear three of Scotland’s finest box players in a special night of music during the course week.
