“Strings of Passion” is the first course of the whole 2017 “Hip Harp Academy.” It’s a 10-Week program that teaches you to connect your creative impulse to the that moment of lift-off that we call creative expression.  Engaging your strings of passion is most important thing you can learn about playing any instrument or engaging in any kind of art – and it enriches your playing at whatever technical level you play whether you’re a fledgling player or a professional.

There’s an Instrument Inside You

Did you know that there’s an inner instrument in each of you that mirrors your outer harp?  The strings of this inner instrument are plucked each time you play your outer instrument and the resonance between them is your Strings of Passion.  Learning to connect the inner and outer strings is what gives you the freedom to express yourself creatively and to use every creative expression as an enrichment your inner life.
