The Aeolian Mode touches and enters into the inner depths of our Soul. It is often referred to the relative minor of a major key of music. In this lesson you will have the choice of three songs to focus on. In the Int’l Harp Therapy Program (IHTP), students are required to memorize one of the songs and then follow it by an improvisation in the same tempo and time signature. They are to utilize at least three variations of the left hand improvization patterns so that the music does not sound repetitiously ‘boring’ but lends itself to creative flow. If you are preparing for study in the IHTP, you will want to focus on memorizing one of the songs followed by the short improvisation (not to exceed 4 mins. in length). When you enroll in the program you can then send on these recordings to your mentor and be far ahead of your schedule on music development.
We are excited to offer you the opportunity to save money on shipping by STREAMING the Creative Harping Lessons. We still offer the hard copies and for our International Students, it is most affordable to get them in bulk to save on the shipping costs. But we now offer you the lessons where you can study on-line. They are not available to download onto your computer which means that you will always need to be on-line to view the lesson and practice with it. As with works of a composer, these are copyrighted and when you receive your access to the stream, the code is only intended for you and not to be shared.
Most importantly to remember is that you are getting lessons here that will go on forever. When you go to a teacher and pay $50.00 for one lesson, you will realize that through the Creative Harping Program you are getting many multiple lessons in each DVD/Viewing for the cost of 1 lesson. This is a continuing lesson from the most beginner to the most advanced level of player.
