La Roche sur Foron, France
For almost 10 years now Manja organizes a harp summer week in the beautiful Alpine surroundings of La Roche sur Foron, Haute-Savoie (30 minutes from Geneva)
Do you want to prepare for an audition, competition or concert, strengthen your technique, work on sound, get inspired by new musical ideas and have a good time with other participants then be welcome in the 10th International Harp Summer Masterclass in La Roche sur Foron for an inspiring week full of music!
Manja will offer her rich experience as soloist, chamber musician and passionate teacher. In her personal approach she will help you to fully realize your own musical voice.
In the past years guestteachers were: Julia Dinerstein, viola, Fiona Tree, Alexandertechnique for musicians and Sabrina Vlaskalic, guitar
For this year Manja is very happy to announce special guest teacher Masumi Nagasawa, specialist in 18th -19th century historical pedalharps and a wonderful musician.
So if you have music from this period, bring it with you!
Masumi will be able to inspire you to have a new approach to the style of playing from the period, and also how to integrate this on the modern harp performance.
You will attend a lecture and demonstration on the development of the pedal harp technique and music demonstrated on a single-action pedal harp.
Lessons are from both Manja and Masumi and let us learn from each other in the group lessons!!
