All students learn
basic finger patterns (neighbor note patterns, every other patterns
and mixed note patterns).
Bring your harp for the first lesson, so sitting position can be shown
for your size harp.
Don't read music notation? No problem!
We will learn the first few songs by ear and use harp tablature as
a back up writing system of remember the song patterns. This allows
us to focus on letting hand position get solid - the most important
aspect of harping!
Read music already?
We start on simple songs using a proven progressive method that encourages
confidence and fun in learning.
