Description of Tiffany's August workshops:
Getting Hands to Work Together, Fri 8/26 at 9am PDT, 12pm EDT: This workshop is ideal for beginning harpists who are starting in adulthood with the harp as their first instrument, or who are coming to the harp from a single line melody instrument. We will cover tips and exercises for getting your hands to do two different things simultaneously, and will learn a simple arrangement with a customizable left hand so that you may practice this skill. Sheet music and handouts provided.
Arranging Airs for Harp & Voice, Sat 8/27 at 11am PDT, 2pm EDT: This workshop is for the intermediate player who has a fairly good grasp on technique, rhythm, and playing with both hands, but who would like advice and creative ideas for arrangements when the melody is not needed. We will cover several different patterns that fit nicely under the hands which can be "plugged" into different chords to go under your singing, as well as introductions, interludes and endings for vocal airs. Traditional Scottish song Loch Lomond, in the key of D, will be used as an example and sheet music and handouts will be provided.
