A brand new class!
Course begins 28th February 2022
Sign Up >>HERE<< (Page under construction August 2021, if you see a typo or wish I was including anything else, please do let me know!) This 6 week class aims to help students to prepare and study a piece, ready to perform to the group by the end of the course.
You can be at any level to take this class and will be invited to choose your own piece (although Shelley will provide a number of pieces in the class for to you work on if you prefer).
The emphasis will be on many of the ideas that weave through all the Fairplay Harp School courses. Initially we will work on discovering overview of the music (such as genre, pattern spotting, form/shape of the piece) preparation of the score (e.g. adding fingering, levers/pedals, any other markings to helps us), we will then discuss practice methods, pinch points and create exercises from the music and work on our pieces, checking in with the group and workshopping each week using tried and tested ideas to help us progress. Yes, of course the metronome will be used!
This course can be accessed whatever your level. It also follows on well from the Flourishing Harpist 12 week class as it will enable a focus space to put into action many of the ideas studied during the course. if you have any concerns or questions please email Shelley on email@example.com
What will we work on?
- Overview of your chosen music
- Preparation of score
- Pinch point exercises specific to chosen piece
- Using a practice diary
- Mindset (including acceptance)
- Metronome use
- Sharing challenges to the group
- Written tasks
- Playing tasks
- Working on the groove of your piece (I believe this works with any genre!)
- Finding escape and rescue points
- Motivational goal of end of class performance in the safe space of the group
Sign Up >>HERE<< Due to the individual approach of this class, pre-recorded content for this class will be much less than in other Fairplay Harp School courses. Shelley will be looking to guide you on a more individual basis during the course including weekly tasks, some written and some playing. If you are unable to make the live sessions you will be able to send in your homework task in advance and watch the response as a replay afterwards. The written and pre-recorded course materials will be delivered weekly via Ruzuku on Monday for 6 weeks. Our live workshop sessions will take place on Wednesday nights 8PM British Time.
