Dates: July 21 – 28, 2017
Harp Instructors: Gianetta Baril, Judy Loman and Julia Kay Jamieson
All courses include private lessons, workshops (eg. rhythm, theory, improvisation, arranging) and ensembles. Recognizing the importance of healthy practices, stretch and movement sessions are part of the daily schedule. Other classes maybe added depending on the needs and number of registered students.
Besides solo repertoire for study in private lessons, each participant should bring a piece they are interested in arranging and/or improvising upon. Over the week, we will analyze the pieces (chords, form, rhythm) and then use our analysis to build an arrangement. From there we will delve into improvising a verse of their piece and/or develop intros, decorations, etc.
RCM (Royal Conservatory of Music) repertoire and technical levels to use as a planning guide for the faculty. Number of lessons, workshops, etc are the same for all students. Please click here to download syllabus.
Students will practice in their own rooms moving their harps to workshop sessions. A limited number of rentals harps (lever and pedal) will be available. Fee for a rental harp to be covered by the participant. Availability and cost will be calculated based on number of participants requiring rental instruments. It is possible that instruments would need to be shared. For this reason, it is highly recommended that participants try to bring their own instruments.
Students cover individual cost of transportation to Caroline, Alberta. If travelling to Calgary Airport (YYC), CISHI administration will endeavour to assist with organizing a ride-share with a local participant.
