START HARP Levels
LEVEL 1 is designed for complete beginners, LEVEL 2 for those with some basic technique and skills and LEVEL 3 for beginners who have really taken to the instrument, learnt the foundations and want to push themselves further!
Each level will be delivered over 12 weeks, with ten lesson weeks, one “catch up” week mid term and a review week at the end. The course materials can be accessed online at whatever time of the day suits the students’ lifestyle. The content is delivered in the form of video tutorials, reading materials and play along practice tracks. It is also optional for students to submit 6 pieces of homework and receive feedback from Shelley alongside attending 6 live Q & A webinars, where questions can be asked and answered live during the session. The live sessions are recorded so if students are unable to attend they can be replayed at a students’ leisure. All students will be given access to a closed Facebook group where alongside Shelley all START HARP students can interact to share ideas, support each other through challenges and celebrate successes.
