Play the harp at last! The "Harp Ensemble I" class is designed to introduce the novice player to the joy and challenge of playing the harp. Using "Harpsicle" lap harps, students will learn the basics of the "Salzedo" method, explore the range of repertoire of the instrument, and experience the synergy of the harp ensemble. Music handouts will be provided and will cover children's songs, classical music, hymns, popular music, Celtic music, and jazz. All musical skill levels are welcome to participate as basic music theory, rhythmic study, and solfege (do-re-mi) will be an integral part of the class's offerings. The semester will culminate in a premiere concert given by the "OLLI Harp Ensemble." Facilitated Discussion. Hands-On Art. Listening to Music or Other Audio. Viewing Videos. Field Trip(s).
