AEM ONLINE – Härpffen, Singen: Introduction to Harp Accompaniment for Medieval Song with Nancy Thym

October 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT


Singing and playing an instrument at the same time is always challenging. Since Medieval music is based on a modal rather than on a harmonic system, accompanying Medieval songs on the harp presents added challenges. The aim of the course is to abandon chordal thinking and learn tools to help develop other alternatives, such as drone patterns and melodic accompaniments, as well as intabulating the voices of two or three part songs. We will begin with familiar tunes, so that we can concentrate more easily on the accompaniment while singing. Open to: harpists. Singers and auditors are also welcome. Pitch: A=440.
