2020 – CHRISTMAS IMMERSION – Sparkle this Christmas!

Live online course 8thNovember 2020 3.30pm-5.30pm GMT, replay available afterwards.

Have you sorted your Christmas party piece this year?! If not come and join a merry band of fellow harp enthusiasts at this years’ FAIRPLAY CHRISTMAS IMMERSION to help you prepare! In this online course, we focus on a new Christmas tune I have written called  ‘Dance of the Bells’ with sheet music, and since we are on the theme of bells, learn an easy to play version of  ‘Carol of the Bells’ by ear and we will also look at how to add a cheeky twist or two into ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’.

We will delve into ways we can use our hands to help play our Christmas pieces with musical energy and sparkle (at whatever tempo you are ready to play them at). This will give us a technique focus for the course, looking at some quick fixes to help us shape our sound.

We will also warm up together, play exercises and even sneak in some improvisation ideas!

This course will initially be delivered live on 9th November 2020, 3.30-5.30PM GMT. Can’t make it live? No problem, edited replay videos will available afterwards.

 

2020 – CHRISTMAS IMMERSION – Sparkle Together this Christmas!

Live online course 13thDecember 2020 3.30pm-5.30pm GMT, replay available afterwards.

Playing music together at any time of the year is magical, somehow at Christmas I think it can be even more true. Everyone, all ages and abilities, musical or not, can sing, play, dance along to familiar and well-loved pieces together! In this CHRISTMAS IMMERSION we look at ways you can lead from your harp and get EVERYONE to join in, with tips on how to organise, simplify and be creative to encourage even the least willing friend or family member to join in!In some ways, you may feel I have not picked the best year to deliver this collaborative IMMERSION, but I intend to talk about ways you can also make this work using online meeting platforms should the need arise, I will even provide play along videos specifically with that in mind that you can use online over the festive season. We WILL sparkle together this Christmas, come what may!Rather than a focus piece, we are looking at the ways to collaborate and celebrate playing together. I will provide lead sheets (which are of course useable on multiple instruments) to Jingle Bells, Little Drummer BoyAway in a Manger and We Wish You a Merry Christmas. Many of the ideas will be transferable to all your favourite tunes!

This course will initially be delivered live on 13th December 2020, 3.30-5.30PM GMT. Can’t make it live? No problem, edited replay videos will available afterwards.

We will take some time to look at ways to accompany a simple melody (general ideas as well as specific to our pieces in this IMMERSION). This will include the use of drones and how to work out close position chords in left or right hand to make a full and festive sound in the easiest way possible. We will also look at warming up, exercises and some improvisation ideas!

Here are some comments from students who tried the last IMMERSION:

  • Insider info…..don’t miss it but prepare yourself to be bombarded with info in the nicest possible way
  • Don’t miss it! And don’t be surprised if you feel overwhelmed if you do it live. Shelley basically fits a full week of Start Harp into 2 hours, so it’s a lot to take in live — but then you can go back and work with the videos as you’re already used to doing in Start Harp. Or you can miss the live bit and just do the videos afterward. I did my best learning of Spiralling Shoots after the fact, when my brain was quiet and I could hear myself think and appreciate what I was playing.
  • I couldn’t join live so learnt it from the recordings, which are great.
  • I was glad to be on the live presentation, although it was early in the morning. However, due to more pressing priorities, I tabled my practice efforts for a future time—hopefully, in September. That is a benefit of the Immersion structure. Sign up for the class and add to your repertoire when you are ready.
  • I also saw it in the replay. It’s great to be able to go over everything slowly…
