Pop Harp Workshops this Summer

(Pre-Wild Strings Harp Festival)

 22ndAugust 2018 in Kinver

with Harpist Shelley Fairplay

Do you like to play Pop songs? Sometimes we find that sheet music of our favourite songs have not been published for harp. Come and learn key skills required to create your own harp arrangements using readily available PVG (Piano/Voice/Guitar) scores and recordings. What works best? How can you make the arrangement ‘your own’? Are there typical chord progressions and rhythms? What harp sounds and tricks can you use to create a Pop feel to your music? Sometimes we want to play a tune that we cannot find any sheet music for at all, so in this class we will also take a look at how you can use recordings/YouTube to work out your favourite song. Come along and open the door to a whole world of Pop music on the harp, even writing your own! We will finish the afternoon with a short concert to friends and family at 4pm to showcase the music we have been working on during the day.
