Join Our 2-Day Online Summer Bootcamp for Harpists!

Dates: 10th and 11th August
Time: 3pm-9pm GMT+1
Location: Online
Instructor: Shelley Fairplay

Are you ready to take your harp skills to the next level? Join us for an intensive 2-day Harp Bootcamp designed for harpists around the globe! This immersive experience will blend playing, practice, masterclasses, and personal reflection to help you unlock your full potential.

Why Attend?

By digging deep to find out our hopes and dreams, we can intentionally move in our planned direction with our playing, avoiding uncertainty or ineffective practice. Intentional practice can greatly improve consistency, focus, and progress over time. This bootcamp will create space for self-assessment, goal setting, technique reflection,  effective practice and self-care strategies.

The bootcamp will enable you to:

  • Leave with a clear vision on the next steps to move forward with freedom and confidence.
  • Receive a personalised review by Shelley Fairplay, including technique suggestions, performer tips, and next steps guidance.
  • Navigate the brand new 2.0 Matrix Release of Fairplay Harp School Content.

To join, you need to:

  • Be a current member of Coach and Connect or sign up for the programme by 31st July 2024.
  • Bring one 2-5 minute tune you can already play to share with the group.
  • Bring one tune you have never learnt to put into practice best practice strategies.
  • Set up with a webcam so you and your harp can be clearly seen and heard during the session.
