YOU want to be more creative?
You want to play with FREEDOM?
I can show you how!

Below are some of Hip Harp Academy’s most popular classes that you can take “a la carte.” They’re completely self-paced so you can take them on your own time and review as much you want. You can even speed up or slow down the video to watch at the speed YOU want to go!

Hands-On Harmony
Sing & Play Harp

These are the two of the most targeted, powerful classes in the Academy. “HANDS-ON HARMONY” focuses on skills that every harp player needs, whether you’re playing classical music, therapeutic, meditation or improv and jazz, starting from a single note and building to extended chords and progressions.  “SING & PLAY HARP” teaches you the single powerful skill of being able to sing and play at the same time, with an extensive set of accompaniment patterns and a learning method that you can grasp in less than 3 hours — or expand as far as you want.

One Song: The Nightingale
Blueprints for Creativity

These two classes couldn’t be more different from one another!

ONE SONG: THE NIGHTINGALE” focuses on a single song, my most popular piece, “The Nightingale” – in a series of bite-size sessions you learn to break the tune down, to learn how it ‘works’ and to build up a version of it specifically for your technical level – as an instrumental tune, or to sing and play.  “BLUEPRINTS for CREATIVITY” teaches you SIX powerful improv forms — all the basic improv structures that we use throughout the year in Hip Harp Academy. Each one is a blueprint for infinite creative expression, as you can apply it to any simple tune to create new music over and over.

One Song: The Nightingale

“One Song” is a new way of learning music: to deconstruct it, simplify, master and expand – so you can liberate yourself from the notes on the page and play it masterfully at your level of technical ability – whether you’re a fledgeling player or an advanced professional.

With “One Song: The Nightingale” you’ll learn to play this song as if it were the song of your own heart.   When you learn to do that with One Song – you’ll know how to do it with any song.
