Below is a summary of the weekend’s activities.
Friday, April 25th, 3:00 p.m – 9:00 p.m. : Private lessons with Claire : Chapter Vice-President Suzanne Hershey is graciously opening her home and providing a harp for Claire to give lessons. 30-minute lessons are $40; 60-minute, $80.

12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. : Lunch Break
1:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. : Harpercussion Workshop : Claire and Chris will be conducting a two-part workshop designed especially for us! In the first hour, Chris will work with percussionists, analyzing rhythms from different styles of world music and using them as building blocks for creating new grooves for pop recording sessions and cinematic loops. Separately, Claire will discuss with harpists the best ways to warm up before a performance or practice session, and how to make practicing more effective and productive. After a break for participants to come together, both Claire and Chris will lead everyone in an exploratory journey through the world of arranging a piece of music for harp and percussion. Time permitting, all participants will stage a performance of the piece. The cost has been discounted to only $10!
