Ensemble for Adult Learners: Launching September 2013

Monday night 10 week class each school term.

In September 2013 I am launching a harp ensemble evening class for adult learners. The ensemble will run in 10 week blocks in conjunction with the school terms. Each week we will work on repertoire pieces from traditional, classical, world and modern genres as an ensemble and also look at one specific skill/technique to inform your general harp playing.

Are you studying the harp?

Come and join us! The classes are open to all harp students who have a basic knowledge of music reading and harp technique. Music will be prepared to cater for a variety of abilities 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: You will have the opportunity to hear and try new repertoire, bench mark your progress, explore different techniques, share successes, overcome challenges, the list is endless! You will also find that ensemble playing works wonders for sight-reading skills.

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 or 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.
