After the success of the 2020 Christmas Harp Collaboration we have decided to do it again!

The collaboration is FREE and open to ALL HARPISTS - whatever your age and standard of playing.

The three songs featured this year are: -

Christ Child Lullaby (with special feature of Harp Scotland subscribers)
Away In A Manger
We Wish You A Merry Christmas

When you sign up you will gain access to the Christmas Harp Collaboration Course. Throughout September and October, a series of video tutorials and notated sheet music will guide you through the pieces. There will also be guidance on how to record yourself and submit your video, plus opportunities to attend live Zoom sessions.

For now, all you need to do is sign up and you will be emailed when content is added.
