Description: INSTRUCTORS: DENNIS WARING AND RACHEL CLEMENTE WEDNESDAY, JULY 21 – WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 25, 2021 (6 WEEKLY SESSIONS) 3:30 – 5:30 P.M. SVAC Member: $150; Non-Member: $200 Build your own mini-harp in this six-week class. These are true, durable wooden instruments with a beautiful sound. Hands on Harps is an entirely hands-on experience. Participants will build, string, and learn to play their very own small 19-string lap harps. Renowned ethnomusicologist Dennis Waring (https://waringmusic.com/about-2/) leads two sessions of building, and in four additional sessions, harpist Rachel Clemente (https://www.rachelclementeharpist.com/) teaches students about the harp and the basics of how to begin to play it. Students will learn about the traditional Irish and Scottish culture that surrounds the harp. We will also work on a beginner Scottish/Irish tune to perform together at the end of the 6 week workshop. All ages are welcome. Young students should plan to work with a parent. Rachel looks forward to seeing students join the greater traditional arts community! Additional materials fee of $140 per harp payable directly to the instructor on the first day of class.
