Creative Harping - The Signature Method for Learning to Play Music by Ear.

It is the Basis for Music Development for the
International Harp Therapy Program.

MUSIC DEVELOPMENT

Music Development in the Int’l Harp Therapy Program combines three elements
1. expanding repertoire
2. understanding and utilzing sound frequencies
3. learning how to improvise using the mode system.

The book and video/DVD series, Creative Harping – Modes for Moods is required
study for graduation. These ten beautiful teaching lessons take you on a progressive
journey of easy learning while you also enjoy nature scenery. Three camera angles
provide close-up hand views showing technique, improvisational patterns, and
exercises. Christina has developed her own instructional method which challenges
beginners, intermediate and advanced players. You can play along with the videos/DVDs
and the book. The book provides a comprehensive glossary of chords for improvisation
in different keys and their modes.

This series is a valuable tool for people who want to get a head start on music
development before they enroll in the course. In some cases with approval of the director,
Module 2 can be taken before Module 1 provided the first six videos have been studied.
