Harp Workshops at Dusty Strings in Seattle, WA

The Sing-Along Harper
$30 or $50 for both of the instructor’s workshops
For beginning and intermediate harpers, in this class we’ll learn how to “jam” along with a song circle on popular sing-along songs – just like people who play guitar!  We’ll use folk and pop tunes that have words and chords only – no written music.  You’ll learn how to play chords in a variety of rhythm patterns and you’ll learn “fingerpicking” styles to play along with singers and guitarists and other musicians in a group setting.  Use these patterns to accompany your own singing or another singer or instrumentalist!

Singing Mechanics – a Look Under the Hood
$30 or $50 for both of the instructor’s workshops
This is a basic “how-to” for singers of all levels.  We’ll take a look “under the hood” at the mechanics of singing to gain an understanding of the physiology of singing.  Visual concepts and practical exercises will be given to provide a clear path to improving the strength, range, and effectiveness of the singing voice.  Verlene Schermer has been teaching voice for over 25 years, and has published several articles in magazines such as Vocals, and Vocalese.

Saturday, 3/11/06, 7:30 pm Concert -- Joining Verlene and Linnette will be bassist Nigel Green

Harp Workshops in Nevada City, CA

 Playing to Heal
$20 or $35 for both of the instructor’s workshops
In this workshop, you’ll add to your repertoire of music to play in a hospital, hospice or even for background music at a dinner party.  You’ll be provided with a few simple transcriptions of some great tunes, and you’ll learn some tips on how to play requests you’ve never played on harp before (finding the melody, finding the chords…)  You’ll also learn a few simple chord progressions that make improvisation easy and effective. Verlene will share some of her experiences in using these tools as a hospital musician at Stanford Hospital in patient’s rooms, ICU’s, Children’s hospital, and the Cancer Center.

Cool Chords & Groovy Rhythms – Jazzing up your harp arrangements

$20 or $35 for both of the instructor’s workshops
Modern musical styles use chords that include notes beyond the triad, and rhythms that sometimes swing, sometimes syncopate.  In this workshop, you’ll learn how to find those jazzy “extra” notes that will spice up your arrangements and how to insert them “on the fly” as you play tunes already in your repertoire!  You’ll also learn how to jazz up the rhythms with a few simple tricks!
