Teacher, performer, enthusiast, encourager
& all round Magic music maker
Music comes first every time and I play all the recorder family, tin whistle, concert flute, baroque flute, piccolo, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, guitar (badly!), piano, all the classical percussion instruments, saxophone and the Clàrsach. I really think everyone should have a go at making/playing music. It's never too late to take up an instrument - the only necessary skill is that you want to have a go!
The philosophy behind 'Harp 2 Ewe' courses is simple - good teaching with a variety of excellent tutors, carrying on the tradition in pleasant surroundings with excellent food to sustain the sessions, giving opportunities to play and learn in a safe environment. Music is supposed to be fun and learning should be too! Hard work, good humour, good food and good music - what more could you ask for?
"The sound of the Clarsach at the hands of Carole Miller is so hauntingly beautiful that when she has played here at The Dundonnell Hotel for our guests you could hear a pin drop, Carole and her harp command and receive total absorption and joy from the moment she begins to play."
If you're looking for something a little different for your wedding, why not give the service and reception an authentic Scottish flavour with traditional music on the Clàrsach. With enough notice, Carole can customise your special day with music of your choice on Clàrsach (the small Scottish Harp).

When I was only 16, I was accepted onto the BA Music Performance course at the RSAMD (Now the RCS). I studied flute with John Wiggins (1st Flute BBCSSO) and Richard Chester (1st Flute RSNO) for four years (Piano with Gustav Fenyo and Bela Simandi, Harmony and Composition with John Weeks) before pursuing a career mainly teaching, coaching and performing but also examining and adjudicating.
I took up harp in my mid 30s, having always wanted to play. My main harps are a Frank Sievert Silmaril and a Starfish Maple Glenelle with Delacour levers but I also have an Ardival, Camac elctro harp and a Bohemian Harp that I play on regularly.
