Jazz Harp Weekend in Stockholm, 30/8 - 1/9 2019
with Tara Minton, harp and voice, and Stina Hellberg Agback, harp
In the beautiful archipelago of Stockholm, you are invited to join myself and Tara Minton on an intensive course in jazz and improvisation. The focus will be on evolving your creative and improvisational skills, working with a rhythm section as well as getting one-to-one lessons.
So, what makes this jazz harp academy different from all the rest? Well, Tara and I are both working jazz musicians who just happen to play the harp! Let us teach you what we've learned from years of experience undercover in the jazz world - playing with a rhythm section, improvising over changes, crafting a solo to finding your space within an ensemble.
Open to harpists of all levels, the aim is to be creative with what you bring to the table, as well as working with well-known standards with a focus on rhythm, harmony and ensemble playing.
Weekend begins with a welcome concert on the evening of Friday the 30th of August and a meet and greet dinner.
Saturday is full of private lessons, rhythm workshops, ensemble playing and a late night "jazz jam" after dinner.
Sunday we present our jazz harp concert with original works written by students and tutors and standards arranged for harp ensembles and rhythm section.
The whole weekend is £350, which includes all tuition, food and accommodation, plus bus transfer from Stockholm airport to Ingarö. All you need to do is book flights to Stockholm.

We look forward to welcoming you in August!
