Please do send Ellie some feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org if her advice has been useful. Read on to learn about the elementary online harp learning course she has created with Keziah Thomas!
Get Ready for Grades
is a new online course journey by Keziah Thomas and Eleanor Turner. They both feel that between each grade, you can isolate around ten new skills that need to be mastered in order to smoothly progress to the level of the next grade. By identifying and separating these key skills, they become less overwhelming and very satisfying to master. Relevant to Trinity and ABRSM grades. For US harpists this would correspond with the level of McDonald and Wood Solos Vol 2-3.
Please visit Ellie's Online Harp School at Teachable to view the Course Curriculum and access two sample lessons: Get Ready for Grades Level 3 | Eleanor Turner's Online Harp School (teachable.com)
Get Ready for Grades Level 3
Keziah and Eleanor have started with this level, because the first HUGE jump in skills needed is between Grade 2 and Grade 3.
