Anna-Wendy lectures in Traditional music in the Outer Hebrides
Item posted: Tuesday 10th October , 2006
After teaching at several Ceolas summer school weeks on the Island of South Uist and flying up to Benbecula as a guest tutor over the past few years, Anna-Wendy accepted the job of part-time music lecturer at Lews Castle College which is part of the University of the Highlands and Islands network. This job gives her a fantastic opportunity to live in a place where Gaelic is the language of the day to day living and where there are beautiful walks to be had, house parties and tunes. She is loving the teaching and the opportunity to live without the city distractions yet is able to fly to the mainland for gigs (it's handy having a friday off). The courses offered are fantastic and we have an amazing bunch of students this year. Students travel from all parts of the globe to study here. There are so many attractions to this place and to this course. The facilities are excellent for recording CDs and part of the learning is the study for a pro-tools certificate - the recording industry standard. The students perform in concerts throughout the year. These will be posted on this site as well as others.
