Operation Overblow – online harmonica lessons at home
We have now delivered all remaining Spring sessions in pre-recorded format via YouTube, so that parents and students can access their lessons in safety at home. This has been the first phase of Operation Overblow. If you have not spotted our email, please check spam and junk folders, and if you still have any outstanding queries please let us know.
No doubt your home schooling and distance learning programmes are taking shape at home. Harp Academy is happy to remain a part of your routine and, for those who wish, we will bring our harmonica music-making to you via the internet throughout the Summer Term, or until Schools resume. Let’s look at this more closely.
Summer Term harmonica sessions
Many of you are asking about harmonica sessions this Summer, and this is where phase two of Operation Overblow kicks in. We are pre-recording courses of ten half-hour lessons for KS1 and KS2 subscribers respectively, which we will roll out week by week via YouTube in line with our published Summer schedule. Using our weekly link, subscribers can download and complete each lesson in one go, or work through in bite size chunks, and they can re-use the link as many times as they need. This system continue while lockdown measures are in place and our Summer schedule is live. Once schools re-open, we will return to the classroom to complete our programme in person. You can find the Summer schedule for your School in the My School menu.
How and when do I sign up for the Summer lessons?
In the usual way, and right now! Thank you to everyone who has already signed up. If you have not already done so, please go ahead and organise your subscription as normal. You can pay for the whole term in advance, or else through monthly instalments in advance. If you already have a monthly standing order arranged, simply let this tick over. Detailed subscription instructions are set out on our How To Pay page.
And much more there shall be
In addition to our prerecorded courses, Will Wilde and Richard Taylor will go Live at Five each Friday on YouTube with their interactive programme of musical mayhem. This is when you can ask all your burning questions, add comments and suggestions, and enjoy top tips straight from our Jedi harmonica masters. Check out our Live at Five posts below, with links to our previous pie-tastic broadcasts.
May the force be with you
