How to play the ‘bones’ of “Baroque Flamenco” by generating the music from a “blueprint” instead of being stuck reading each note.

How to see the music as a GAME you can play any way you want: with passion, whimsy – or as a soothing meditation.

h

How to put it all together with a pizzazzy Flamenco harp technique – or a quiet, simple strum – so it expresses YOUR musical spirit at the level of YOUR technical sweet spot.

One Fledgling Harpist’s experience learning Baroque Flamenco the “Make it Easy” way

I love the short effective courses. Learning improvisation in just 15 min a day – it really works!  ~ Nordsee Harfe

I was skeptical at first. I didn’t expect that much from just 5 days, but I immediately felt freer in my playing and singing. ~ Theresa Niederberger

You learn so much in such a fun way. The biggest impact on my creative life is the realisation that creativity does not need to be complex or require extraordinary skill. ~ Lesley Macleod 

My favorite part is the format of the classes — easy to understand and straightforward — plus you get to interact with DHC! ~ Kathy Kelly

Each of DHC’s challenges gave me the freedom to sit and create at my level and what I dreamed up … it sounded good … Now passing the harp I can just doodle up a creative improv. ~ Connie Lo Porto

“Make-It-Easy” Challenge

Meet your creative coach Deborah Henson-Conant

I’m Deborah Henson-Conant, and I’ve been composing, arranging and creating shows since I was a kid. I now play shows with symphonies and on solo stages with the electric harp that was created for me by CAMAC Harps, the “DHC” Harp.

But I started on the ukulele, playing and singing my own little-kid arrangements, telling stories, improvising and playing and singing with other people. And guess what? I use many of the same skills and principles to arrange the music I record and perform today – including the Grammy-Nominated album “Invention & Alchemy” and the song that won first prize in the International Songwriting Competiton (ISC).
