This is the 3rd week I’ve given myself this challenge – to sing my news to Blues.  It was very hard to post this week’s video because:

A. It’s long (so feel free to stop at any point … but why am I saying that … of course you always stop when you want)

B. It went to a place I wasn’t expecting – one that was a lot more personal

C. I forgot to include the news!  So I added the news in bullet lists below.

It’s a challenge to just sit down and be myself in front of a camera and to allow whatever is to be, to allow the experience of imperfect completion, and to  share that experience, but I’m committed to that right now as a way to engage with some kind of personal choice in my struggle with perfectionism.

A disclaimer, by the way – I doubt that I really ‘invented’ the term ‘The Reiterative Model.’

And here’s the actual news about upcoming shows and courses:


  • 4/25/2015 – Franklin, MA – HipHarp at the Coffeehouse! – BUY TICKETS NOW
  • 5/15/2015 – Carlsbad, CA – HipHarp at the MoMM – BUY TICKETS NOW

Online Courses

For harpists:  “Baroque Flamenco Bootcamp” is now sold out.  My next course is a Beta-Version of “Hands on Harmony” tentatively scheduled for April 11. This is a one-day virtual retreat (with access to the replay afterwards if you miss it or want to review) – but please note that attendance is limited during the Beta tests.  Please join the “First to Know” list for notification about it – and other courses,  but please also know that that may not guarantee you a spot in this  Beta version.  The course will officially open later in 2015.

And about that rehearsal I mentioned in the video …

Here’s a selfie of Tim and I took in my studio with the music Wednesday night,  rehearsing the show-in-the-making, the “Dukorsky Syndrome” – I mentioned it in the video.  tim-and-dhc

Here’s what it actually looks like when we’re rehearsing.  I’m impersonating all the characters, singing their parts (which gets a little tough in the duets).  Doing it this way lets me come up with spontaneous changes based on what I think they’d ‘actually’ say or do or sing at a particular moment of the show.
