The proprieter of Harp 2 Ewe, Carole Miller's informal biography

Carole, who organises the courses and is available for performance and coaching, is absolutely fanatical about music, the colour purple and Winnie the Pooh.

Carole says:

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!

I started playing on the descant recorder many moons ago, at far too sweet and tender an age to mention. I drove my folks so crazy playing all the time that they decided that I should acquire my own shed. Eventually they relented and I was chosen at school to learn flute. (And the rest as they say is history!) I now play on a solid silver Miyazawa handmade flute, Type II with open holes, inline G and a B foot joint and a Gerhard Sachs Cocus wood flute, again with open holes, inline G and a B foot joint.

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.

Quotes from listeners
"I have to say that you could have heard a pin drop throughout your fab performance."

"Everybody has mentioned your playing this morning. You were a definite hit!"

"Her recent performance at the International Music and Culture Festival in Turkey confirmed her ability to stun an audience of five hundred, in an open air venue, into silence."

"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."
