Tell us about yourself?

I am Louise Harrison and I studied for a B.A. degree in MIC from 1994 to 1998. Then a Masters in Ethnomusicology in UL from 1999 to 2000. I have studied singing since I was 14 attaining distinctions in my vocal performance diplomas from Trinity College London A.T.C.L and L.T.C.L. I worked as a Bunratty Castle Entertainer while I was in college and then went on to tour with Anuna for three years. We toured the USA, Switzerland, Germany, the UK and Ireland. It was an amazing experience.

I have been teaching voice for the last ten years and have become very busy with students, I love teaching. I have also performed at weddings since I was 18 and still do on my website http://www.louiseharrison.net/I released and album in 2008 and I learned a lot from this experience.

I am always studying courses as I feel it makes you a better teacher. Currently I am studying ‘Care of the child with Special Needs' course in Limerick Senior College. This is an area I have always been interested in.


Tell us about your time in Mary Immaculate College?

I really enjoyed studying in Mary Immaculate College, I loved the subjects I chose, English and Music. It holds a lot of happy memories for me. I was quite shy when I started but being in societies and shows outside of college as well helped. I made many friends.

 

One memory that stands out in your mind from your time in MIC?

I was a member of the choir and we did a performance of Beethoven's 9th in the National Concert Hall along with some members of the National chamber choir and accompanied by the National Youth choir. It was a fantastic experience.

 

A member of staff who had an affect or made an impression on you during your time in MIC?

In Music Dr Gareth Cox and in English Fr Hugh Duffy.


What changes would you like to see within MIC?

I think MIC is progressing very well.


Do you maintain a relationship with MIC today?

Yes I have and still am teaching voice lessons in MIC for the last number of years.


What is your current occupation?

I am currently working as a voice teacher and performer.

 

What are your hopes/plans for the future?

Other than being happy! To progress in whatever field I will be in! I have so many interests and areas that I would like to study.


If you were President of MIC for a day what would you do?

I would like to have the students of MIC interact with children and adults with special needs for a day. I have learned so much from the course I am currently studying. And I think volunteer work would benefit students immensely.


If you could quickly sum up your time in MIC or have any advice for MIC students what would it be?

My advice for students would be to make the most of the societies, like the choir, drama society, sports society . These are the memories that leave an impression on you apart from studying for your degrees, of course! They can give you a taste of future hobbies or careers that may last a lifetime. It is important to have interests outside of work and college is the best place to experiment with these interests.
