April Point



Harp Retreat at April Point Resort & Spa -

Two Retreats this fall!

Beginner Harp Retreat - Sept 26-28 - Painter's Lodge. All souls welcome. Harp Rentals available. Your chance to find out (painlessly!) whether you'd like to pursue the harp!  More experienced players also welcome - there will be plenty of work for you as well. More details here on the Painter's Lodge website

Keep Retreating - for more experienced harpers Sept 28 - 30.  For this follow-up retreat we will move to April Point, and though the resort will be closed, the beautiful houses back in the bay are ready for us! (Because they are closed, you'll need to book through me. 250-709-2395)

And here are some photos of  past April Point Harp Retreats.


Hi Marilyn,
Here's a group pic. Thank-you for a Wonderful retreat. With the gorgeous weather, beautiful harp music
and your expert guidance, it was Heaven!


And some other cards and letters and photos -

Hello Marilyn
Here are some pictures from the April Point Resort & Spa workshop. I had a great time, I enjoyed every moment of it. We had lovely accommodations, our cabin was the greatest. So relaxing and so quiet at night I was able to get a good nights sleep. The staff were the best and the chef well...they should never let him go. I can hardly wait for the next workshop at April Point. The workshop was the best, I was able to leave with plenty of information and techniques on Harping. Thank you.


Hi Marilyn,
I just had to send a quick note to you to let you know how much I enjoyed the work shop this weekend. The location, the weather, the company was perfect. I really can not wait for the next one.
Thank you thank you,



From April  '09

Registration is now open for the next April Point Harp weekend. Book now - they fill up fast.

call 1-800-663-7090 to book, or get more info at www.obmg.com/learn

I must warn you that the detailed schedule is going to be changed, due to the advertising which prompted a lot of beginners to register. 

So, like the last one:

This one will be for Beginner, Novice and Intermediate Harpers. There will be couple of sessions for beginners only, and plenty of challenges (and a little extra practice time) for more experienced harpers.

Cost is just $199 for 2 nights accommodation and all the instruction. It is double occupancy, (and you need to tell them your room mates name) so if you want to be matched up with a room mate, let me help.

Rental harps are available ($35) if you are new to harping and don't have your own.

Here is the detailed scheduled (see especially the 2nd page) about the Harp Retreat at April Point. If you want register, see their website here

Last fall's retreat sold out with a waiting list, so don't delay. Email me if you want more info...

April 10/09

I understand the class is full or nearly so, but they do have a waiting list, and if you're on it, it will give you first dibs on next fall's event. Let me know if you want to be on the list, in case someone has to withdraw.
