Video Courses FAQ

Welcome to the Video Courses FAQ!

Don’t forget to read the Video Courses About page.

Video Courses
 
More than 2500 videos of classes and masterclass (artist classes) are accessible by subscription: each subscription gives access to all our courses, only the subscription duration changes.
These videos are very detailed, allowing you to learn with or without solfeggio. Scores are displayed under the course videos for those who wish.
 
There are two possible “paths” to learn with our video courses:
– follow complete and progressive learning path, from beginner to advanced level. This allows you to be guided step by step and to be sure to learn techniques and pieces adapted to your level.
– and / or, learn freely pieces of your choice in our course catalogue. This allows you to enrich his repertoire or techniques, without necessarily following a full learning path.
 
Some video courses are free, accessible by creating a free account, which allows you to try the interface. For This, create an account, then head over to the course page and choose a course with the mention “free”.
 
The videos are available whenever you want from where you want, 24 pm / 24 and 7 D / 7!
 
 
Webcam Courses
 
Learn by Webcam course on our website: you book classes with a real teacher via an interactive calendar, then take course from home in visio-Conference with the skype software. This system and our method has been proven for more than 10 years.
Our teachers adapt to your project and prepare for you the pieces you want at your level.
 
Your teacher will set your goals and prepare a plan of action. One or more styles, pieces of your choice adapted to your level, frequency depending on what you choose or need. Harp-school and its teachers offer you the flexibility for more fun to play.

Once registered, you have access to the entire video course and masterclasses library, despite the level and style, with all our artists or teachers without distinction.

Then you can learn at your pace. The learning paths are available for a progressive learning, but you can also choose to play the pieces you prefer in order that you like and learn the techniques you need and add the masterclass of artists when you need.
 
The video lessons are very detailed: Fingerings, positions, rhythms, techniques, nuances, ornaments; all by oral transmission. Scores are available if you need under the video, but it is not mandatory to read the music to learn with harp-school.com.
 
Connect whenever you want with your computer, tablet or smartphone and learn the pieces you want. You can easily track your progress and resume your current courses with our smart learning interface.
 
If you need personal advice, our teachers are available by webcam to help you and provide tailored lessons!

The music sheets are displayed under the video lessons, but divided in small parts to match the video chapters.

The complete music sheet is not downloadable for free: this is something we have been thinking through a lot. The fact that it would be possible to download hundreds of sheet music -many of which are original artist compositions, with a simple subscription was a moral dilemma regarding these artists. This is why we offer the complete sheets in PDF for sale in our store, the benefits going directly to the artist.

We do our best to build a great online school and the choices are not always easy to make. Our hope is that everyone, harpists and artists alike, are happy 🙂
