Dynamic Harps! Student Ensemble Launching September 2013

Monday night 10 week class each school term:

In September 2013 I am launching a harp ensemble with a twist! This harp ensemble will focus on music styles and skills not always covered regularly in harp lessons such as pop songs, show tunes, film music and jazz. The ensemble will run in 10 week blocks in conjunction with the school terms. Each week we will work on repertoire pieces as an ensemble and also look at a specific skill/technique that will inform general harp playing.

Do you enjoy Film, Show, Pop and Jazz tunes?

Then come and come and join us! The classes are open to harp students at secondary school who are grade 3 level or above. Music will be prepared to cater for the group to make sure everyone can participate and progress appropriately within their comfort zone.  

Q: What are the benefits of learning and playing in an ensemble?

A: In an ensemble you will be able to enjoy listening to and trying out new repertoire, benchmark your progress, explore different techniques, improve sight reading, share successes, overcome challenges and meet regularly with harp friends old and new!

Q: Will you need to bring your own harp and equipment?

A: So that we can play as an ensemble you will need to bring your own harp on a weekly basis. A benefit to this will be that if you have any tunings, string or other maintenance questions I will be able to help and offer advice as required. Adjacent parking to the venue is available along with good access to the rehearsal space. I will provide all the music for our sessions and you will need to bring the handouts from previous weeks.
