'There's a lot of space to play around with, where you want to put each note, and that's what music is all about !'  Josh Layne #harptuesday

as if you tell a story

To me it is important not to take the written rhythm and dynamics to literally. I consider my breathing my metronome. That's why i recommend that you play the composition as if you tell a story - with here and there a (little) pause because you have to think for a moment or with acceleration as a result of your enthusiasm. When you play intuitive, the music will become fluent and natural. Music from the heart will become emotion and you will touch the listener with harp and soul .. with music &love.


i listen !

It means the world that harpists/musicians play my compositions and share it with another audience or apply my recorded music to their dance/theater or spoken word performance. I love to hear/see you perform Harp and Soul Music - if you like you can send me your soundcloud or youtube link so i can share your project on the official meet the artists platform called YOU PLAY i listen !, a series of interviews in which artists are invited to showcase Harp and Soul Music via a video or an audio sharing tool and discuss their own inspirations, influences, thoughts on (harp)repertoire, performance, recording, applied music, teaching and more. This ongoing project starts in 2020.


Feel free to improvise/arrange the music to make it your own ; i really applaud your experiments as you did during the A BIRD creativity contest. ~ AV
