    Great for beginners like me!

    At first was a bit lost, as I hadn’t looked at or printed out the handouts, so I had no idea what it meant to tune a harp to different notes or keys. Once I did that it wasn’t so baffling. The playing from chords part was very easy to understand and to follow. It even inspired me to figure out a song by ear, and then to find some songs to play along with.

    It is an amazing workshop! I learned so much, and was so inspired. I knew nothing about playing from chords before this, but everything was explained so clearly that I feel ready to print off some chord sheets and give it a try. I can’t wait to accompany my grandpa on his violin!

    Easier than it Sounds - Great beginner workshop!

    I chose this course because my favorite music to play on my harp is using popular music lead sheets and preferably in the key of C. This is such a great video/introduction that explains the basics to find the most important chords (4) and why. I thought I was signing up for something at my intermediate level of chord arrangements. But guess what? I still got a great review of the basics and the encouragement to try playing in other keys. That alone was worth the price of admission! Thank you for your very clear instruction, Christy-Lyn!

    Playing From Chords workshop

    Diane Kinkade

    Wow! Very clear and informative. I am a beginner harp player and this knowledge was great. I like the advice about choosing a (simple) song I like, getting the chord sheet, finding the song on youtube and playing along. How cool is that for a beginner?!

    I just watched the workshop Playing from chords 1, and I loved it.
    Really very clearly explained and a very handy handout to print out.
    As an early beginner this gives me a lot more options to play along with songs.
    I’m going to see if I can find some cords sheets on the internet and practice!
    Thanks Christy-Lyn :)!

    HI Christy-Lyn, I watched the replay of the Playing from Chords Part 1 workshop and thought it was excellent. I had joined the last Harp Grove and enjoyed it, but as a beginner, it was a bit of a mystery! Now it all makes sense. I thought the way you explained chords was so clear and easy to follow. I’m really excited to start playing songs from chords. Thanks so much, Kerry
