ZOOM WORKSHOP WITH ELEANOR TURNER (UK)
9am Saturday 27 May 2023
Ohhhhh - a big thanks to Ellie Turner who is ever so generous with her time and expertise, and her Tree of Learning!! What a wonderful analogy for gathering all the pieces of learning, development, strategy and skills for the journey of learning to play the harp. It was relevant and interesting regardless of the ability of the harpist, or the number of years they have been learning. Fascinating stuff and such a down to earth approach to taking responsibility for our learning.
MASTERCLASS WITH CAROLYN MILLS (AUCKLAND)
30 April 2023
An incredible afternoon with an intimate group of keen harpists. Not the usual formal masterclass in this case... as the audience, we had the opportunity to interact directly with the teacher and students as they worked together to identify quick fixes to improve their performances. Students and audience members left with plenty of ideas to work on to improve their playing. The less formal setting and approach from Carolyn was hugely appreciated by the students and audience. Thank you also to Harrison for his very perceptive comments and history around the 'Dusseks' and harps at that time.
A HUGE thanks to Carolyn for her advice, expertise and generosity, to students : Emma, Linda and Harrison for their beautiful music, and being amazing examples of how to improve your playing with a few 'fixes' that made a big difference. Thanks also to our MC Astar for her engaging questions and enthusiasm, and a huge thanks to Scott Lawrie for the use of his beautiful gallery as our venue!
