As well as playing music, Rona is a Gaelic teacher, having taught at Sabhal Mór Ostaig and she is the Lead Gaelic Tutor at Edinburgh University, in charge of the development and delivery of Community Gaelic education.

In light of the Coronavirus shut down of concerts, alongside the boom in the uptake of Duolingo, she and her colleague Mark Turner will be offering online Gaelic tuition. This will utilise an online video-conferencing platform ZOOM, with which we can communicate as a whole class and in small groups. All extra materials will be made available before the classes.
