“An unparalleled learning experience for musicians”

Aaron Morin, Lead Product Educator from premier course platform Thinkific

VHS is eligible for Continuing Education Units (CEUs/CPUs) from 4 leading healing harp organizations

At VHS1 we learned How to Play with Expression & Creativity

At VHS2 we built on this, focusing on Technique

At VHS3 we used this powerful foundation to dramatically improve your Arranging, Improvising & Composing

At VHS4, we reclaim our roots:

how to achieve fruitful daily PRACTICE while learning how to practice with more motivation, ease & results

• how to PERFORM with joy & confidence say goodbye to performance anxiety & start sharing your music naturally

At VHS4 you access the very latest in harp teaching, creating and performing.

Candid, behind-the-scenes interviews and presentations make for an exciting, raw and unedited teaching and learning experience.

It’s the ultimate backstage pass into the Presenters’ homes/studios - the center of their creative life - for sessions that are both intimate and interactive.

Expect to make real and lasting change to your harp life by joining VHS.

As a grassroots movement created by harpists for harpists, supported by harpists, VHS offers a new paradigm of community, learning and creativity that uplifts all harpists:

“I wanted to democratize the learning experience,” says VHS founder Dr. Diana Rowan. 

“Making and sharing in music is one of the most joyous acts of the human experience. I wanted to make great teachers and performers available to people who live in places where such access is difficult, and to bring these artists into the world harp community.  This global community is an ongoing home for creativity and camaraderie.  VHS is also a platform that supports musicians, giving their work new exposure, as well as upholding and elevating the standard of excellence they bring to our art.”

Founder of Bright Knowledge Guild's Virtual Harp Summit & Bright Knowledge Harp Circle

Dr. Diana Rowan

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.
