Harp, Skip and Jump: A Fun Beginning Harp Workshop

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

Not Needed:
● 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.

Getting started with harps. Class 3: Don’t let these small hurdles stop you from playing harp

Always Wanted to Play Harp? Maybe for a long time. But three main things may have stopped you so far: How to buy a harp. I’ll agree, buying you first harp can feel quite daunting. There are a lot of unknowns for the beginner. It doesn’t help that there are no standards for harp-making. How do you know how to choose?  How to find a teacher. It’s not like we’re hanging around street corners, dancing with big plexiglass signs. So how do you find the teacher who is a good fit for you? How to find your confidence. At some point, you’re going to sit back and wonder what you have gotten yourself into, and maybe wonder if it’s possible at all.  You are in the right place, and I’m here to help!  Watch my free “How to Get Started Playing Holistic Harp” video series, and learn how to find the right harp, the right teacher, and how to find the confidence to begin.
