This Improvisation and Performance Techniques workshop has been specifically designed for the Beginner / Intermediate harpist, young or old, who would like an informative introduction to the exciting world of jazz and improvisation.

As many of the skills needed for jazz and improvisation, such as sight reading, harp techniques and performance techniques are also needed for all forms of harp playing many of the tips and tricks learnt will help with regular harp studies.

To enable the students to get the most out of the workshop they will receive a “Pre Course” Study Book with two short tunes and scales that they should familiarise themselves with before the workshop..

On arrival each student will also receive a Workshop Course Book which will also include additional material both for the workshop and for further study in the future.
