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

What Other Harpists who learn to
improvise with DHC have said
“I’ve played harp for nearly 50 years. I have a strict classical background, and never in my wildest dreams thought I could improvise. This makes it all come together in a way I can relate to.”
— Sally Walstrum, Las Vegas
“Your course was quite simply the best harping experience I have ever had.”
— Kevin Roddy (Hawaii)

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).
