Course 2 provides the Second Intensive 'Month' of Harp Lessons. It is designed for those who have taken the First Steps Course 1 (A+B), for those who would
like to refresh their understanding of what it takes to play the harp, and for teachers of beginning harp students.
The course leads the participant through four weeks of Video lessons divided into easy to follow steps, and includes ca 130 minutes of short videos.
The numerous close-up videos and photos are an ideal supplement for visual learners.
It covers: Replacing in different directions; Playing two notes at once; Playing a scale with two hands in different keys; Arpeggios and Flat chords in different keys - using exercises and first pieces.
The First Steps Courses are suitable for lever or pedal harp with any number of
Music used is from Milldred Dilling's 'Old Tunes for New Harpists'. If you don't have the music you will still be able to follow the inserts in the videos, as in Course 1.
You can move at your own pace: choose to watch just the exercise and one piece to understand and practice the new technical concept; watch and learn the additional pieces to spend more time getting comfortable and leaning more about the concept; watch the explanations of harmony and how a Major key works, or skip ahead if this is something you know already.
The Course is currently set up for one person per enrollment use only.
To include a One-on-one Lesson to complement this course, enroll in the Skype Lesson Course as well.
