Please join us for a fun and informative session to learn more about harp therapy in a supportive environment.
Finding your skills as therapeutic harpist with Anna Muller
- Are you interested to know what therapeutic harpists do that is different from other harp musicians or music therapists?
- Are you already qualified and feel like a fake or have you lost your mojo?
- Do you question whether what you do makes a difference?
Come and find out why you feel that way and what is expected of a therapeutic harp player. This aims to be a conversational time where you can ask questions about the course and even ask questions as a therapist to see how you can strengthen your experience and the experience of the person receiving therapy.
Find out whether you want to be a therapist and meet more people interested and knowledgeable in the field.
Pre-requisites: A sense of humour, inquisitiveness and a love to connect to find out WIIFM.
Oh, you don’t know what WIIFM stands for…? Come and find out. See you there.
Amazing Modes with Louise Bell
Modes are a beautiful revelation of seven musical scales within one. By shifting the tonal centre without altering the note selection or harp tuning, we open a range of scales which are Major or minor, yet with slight variations. These reflect and evoke a range of moods, so that we can lovingly meet our recipient in the present moment in a responsive and flowing way.
This segment of the Skills Workshop provides an introduction to one of the primary principles of the International Harp Therapy Program. We will explore and experience the sound of each mode, with examples in repertoire from past to present. On Zoom we have a safe environment to play along on mute, and also to unmute and share our music with the group as we feel.
Recommended preparation: open heart, open ears! A tuned harp? All the better!
Welcome to Animal Planet with Vimukti
The fundamentals of working with animals is similar to working with humans as it pertains to the intent, compassion, observation and willingness to play what is best for them in the moment. How we go about implementing this varies depending on who we play for. However, there are some quite obvious and some not so obvious differences in our considerations when working with animals.
Join Vimukti as she shares with you her stories and insights from working with animals as an animal lover and therapeutic harpist. Allow the words, pictures and videos to draw you into the stories of working with rescued farmed animals and wildlife. You will be guided through an interactive experience of playing in a couple of the stories. Please have your harp or instrument tuned to play in the key of C.
