ARRANGING, IMPROVISING & COMPOSING
At VHS.1 we learned "How to Play with Expression & Creativity."
At VHS.2 we built on this, focusing on "Technique."
Now at VHS.3, use this powerful foundation to
dramatically improve your ability to "Arrange, Improvise & Compose."
Finally learn how to arrange your favorite songs, to improvise with confidence, to compose with inspiration:
Come learn from harp teachers and performers who walk their talk.
Let's demystify Arranging, so that you can make songs your own, and find your personal harp voice/style.
Let's get you Improvising with ease and confidence, so you'll always have something to play, wherever you are.
Composing is perhaps the most intimidating topic of all: learn from us how you can contribute your beautiful voice to our harp world.
As you've come to expect from VHS, each top-notch VHS Presenter has been chosen because of their artistic abilities, teaching talents, and compassionate natures.
At VHS you learn in a way that is accessible, liberating and fun.
We can't wait to see what you start creating after VHS.3!

As a teacher and performer, my greatest goal is to make lasting transformation real.
This is very practical: I get my students to play better, with more power, confidence and sheer artistry. For my audiences, I take them on a deep internal journey, and they find themselves changed forever.
