The first practical program of its kind for harpists who want to read music with confidence!
This course not only shows you how different aspects of music theory come together but also guides you step by step through the practicalities of transforming the notes on the page into sound.
As you feel and develop the connection between your fingers, strings and the notes, you go from feeling unsure about learning new pieces to feeling confident in your ability to read music and play the harp at the same time!
• Read music in both treble and bass clef at the same time
• Know the notes and relate them to the actual string
• Be familiar with the geography of your harp and where each octave is in relation to the notes
• See how different bits of music theory come together on the harp
• Feel what it’s like to look ahead and prepare early so you can play fluently
• Play in time and be able to work out even complex rhythms on your own
• Have a strategy for learning new pieces
Loving every minute!
Gotta say, I do so love the tone Zuzanna takes in talking us through all of this. Her wonderful smile and comfort in teaching us comes through beautifully, and convey so much strength and support.
It feels terrific to get to work with every bit she conveys in these videos (seriously!) The pace of moving through things also feels very very good (challenging, but still good!) Very anxious to get my harp going again and me too. Thanks so much!

A few words from my amazing students…
I was hoping to get comfortable with reading sheet music in this course, and to have a motivational tool to help me in the process: it was a success for both! After the second week I could name the notes we had worked on with little hesitation.
I felt connected and motivated, I could do the exercises in my spare time without feeling alone (as we were all progressing together and could ask questions); the small, frequent videos with exercises worked extremely well for concept assimilation for me.

I wanted to understand how to read music and play at the same time. The way it was presented really helped to connect the page to the strings for me. The exercises were very helpful in working with two hands together, and the moving music got me familiar with looking ahead to see what is coming. The speed of the movement allowed me to still think, yet work to improve my recognition speed by doing this. I feel more comfortable now using two hands as soon as possible.
I have made it a point to look for patterns in my songs before putting fingers to harp at the beginning of my practices, and I feel I am progressing faster than I have before. This last module was by far my most favorite. I am really looking forward to the next few months of my practice with having more confidence in my ability to learn and grow musically by using the skills taught here.
Thank you for the opportunity to take part in this wonderful learning experience!

I knew that there were different skills that I needed to learn: knowing the notes, relating them to the strings, playing early, counting the rhythm. I hoped that I would get some of or all under my belt, and be able to use them individually - and maybe (just maybe!) be able to combine some of them at the same time.
And I have been able to do this, a lot more often that I could before! In addition I particularly like how I now have a tool box for working out the notes, and I am so grateful for that.
Very, very happy!
