Do you love the sound of the harp? Do you always wish you could play? Or do you play another instrument and wish you could add the harp to your collection of instruments? This is the workshop for you. No experience is needed, and most of the class will be taught by ear.
In this workshop, you will learn:
● A brief history of the harp
● The different kinds of harps
● How to figure out what all the strings mean
● How to make beautiful improvised music, using your ears and a few simple ideas
● How to play improvised music with others
● One or two simple songs
● A beginner’s mind and a playful spirit
● A notebook or some way to take notes
● You do not need to read music as most of the workshop will be taught by ear.
● You do not need to bring a harp, but if you have one, please bring it. I will bring harps to share.
