"If you are enjoy singing & live nearby, why don't you come and join us?

Meet new friends & enjoy the benefits singing can bring in lifting your spirits. 

 

Weekly choir practice held at Macduff Arts Centre every Wednesday at 7pm. 

I truly admire Irene’s enthusiasm and the passion for music she shares with everyone.
 
To be able to lead the singing and accompany yourself on the keyboard isn’t the easiest of tasks!
 
Being able to harmonise as a group of singers definitely lifts the spirits of all involved!

Irene is an inspirational musical director of our community choir. She believes in our ability to take on challenges - singing amazing arrangements in 4 part harmony as well as having fun and just enjoying singing together. I am a much more confident singer since being under her musical direction and being part of the great singing community we have at the Mearns Singers.

Irene helped my sanity during the Covid pandemic by leading a x2 weekly virtual Zoom choir. Thanks Irene!

Irene is our musical director for the Deveron Singers in Macduff.

She has an infectious enthusiasm and love of music, performing, and bringing people together to sing in harmony.

In addition to being a brilliant musician, harpist and composer, she brings an amazing sense of community and fun to choir practice and events.

Come join our Deveron Singers choir, it's great!

Singing with Irene and the Deveron Singers is fun, interesting, and educational.

Irene's natural talent brings the best out of us all, and Irene can make us sound amazing.

Irene has introduced me to lots of different music, the wonderful sound of the harp, and given me so many new experiences, from singing workshops to being on stage at the Tivoli Theatre.

Harpist / Clarsach Musician

Irene is available for your special event or wedding. A harp's melody is the perfect accompanyment as background music for your special day.

Irene Watt's Harp Music is beautiful. The sounds were amazing. She literally offered to play any song we wanted (as long as it sounded good on harp). Such a lovely lady. The harp made a great addition to our ceremony and sounded beautiful. My only regret was being the bride I missed a lot of it! However I have been given plenty compliments on her playing.

You're never too young, or old, to learn to play the harp

Harp / Clarsach Music Lessons

Irene can offer harp lessons in-person and online, to individuals or groups.

Her regular harp retreats are aimed at building musical confidence for all levels from beginners to experienced harpists.

She even runs workshops on how to build your own harp. 

I cannot recommend Irene enough!
She is an exceptionally talented musician/teacher and has an enormous amount of patience with both young and not-so-young students!
Her creative energy overflows and you can't help but to be inspired by her.
Having taken lessons with Irene in person for two years, it has been a blessing to be able to continue lesson virtually.
The quality of the lessons via Zoom is great and, with the after-class videos and support from such an experienced musician, it is excellent value to boot!
