The Signature Method for Learning to Play Music by Ear – Creative Harping is the Basis for Music Development for the International Harp Therapy Program.
#6 – IONIAN MODE – Most of the music we listen to is in the Ionian Mode. It is described as uplifting, happy, peaceful among many other descriptive words. No wonder then that we are surrounded by this mode when we are walking through shopping centers where the promoters are aiming psychologically to keep us happy and satisfied.
The structure of this mode involves having the ability to hear 3 basic chords when we are improvising. Up until this point, we have been able to do our improvisations on 1 or 2 chords. Now we are refining our ears to hear different changes.
The songs in this lesson lend themselves easily to developing ear-training. Having the left-hand patterns and the right-hand patterns from the presious lessons will now be applied in the 3 chord structure.

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.
Many will want to jump to the last lesson but the program has been systematically planned so that you will have the skills developed step by step to “hear”, “understand” and “implement” all of the components when you get to Lesson #10.
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.
