What Do I Need?
- Cissy Strut is in “C”. You’ll need an F harp. Additional keys highly recommended.
- A decent internet connection
- Use of a desktop or laptop computer is highly recommended for the best experience.
(Zoom can be used on a phone or tablet but I recommend a computer.
- Familiarize yourself with the Zoom platform (the basic stuff) before the day of the workshop.

The two most valuable pieces of music equipment
you’ll ever own…
are your ears.
I learned to play by ear, and even today, have only a basic understanding of music theory. What I do have is 46 years experience as a working harp player – on stage and in the studio – always having to adapt to a wide variety of musical situations. That’s been the best training ground any player could have asked for.”
So besides passing on a few new licks, my goal is to open your eyes and ears to some new ways of approaching playing – ways that will ultimately help you become not just a better harp player, but a better musician as well.
