Enjoy this special holiday gift from my students and me.  This is Teddy’s “Final-Beginning” project from Fall 2016 Hip Harp Toolkit course at http://www.HipHarpAcademy.com. The project was to create a Holiday Greeting with Harp – and the goal was “Connection – not Perfection.” These projects are called “Final-Beginning” projects to help us remember that each thing we complete is really the first step in the next phase of our relationship with it.

Teddy answers questions about this project:

1.  What did it take for you to get to the place of being able to play what you did – both logistically and emotionally?

For me, finding the best angle for the camera to include everything I wanted for the video was the logistical challenge. Emotionally, I was excited to share what I have learned

2.  What freedoms and blocks did you connect with (or struggle with) in the process?  I am more comfortable now with the concept of “imperfect completion”. I am less likely to be thrown by small errors in my playing, and my confidence has increased as a result.

3. What were your personal “Ahas”?  I am learning that I have a style that is my own, and I’m looking forward to exploring that more.

4. Anything else you want to tell your viewers?  In this video I hope to share my love of the harp and the tenderness of Christmas season in a very personal way.
