I have a question about the Creative Harping DVDs. In your Dorian Lesson you say to just watch the left hand and flow with the right and everything will sound good. I haven’t found that to be working for me.  If I play a B, it sounds awkward.  I find I have to watch the right hand a lot.

Yes, that B is the stickler – but when I have people start, I would rather have the Dorian recording sound crazy playing without looking at the right hand. Eventually, you will get the hang of it, but if one cannot get into the right brain – which means not looking at the right hand as it plays – then they never make that jump. So, as crazy as the your first Dorian submission may sound, it’s best to let it happen. It’s ok!  It’s the process of developing one’s ear.

Eventually you will ‘hear’ that strange B and have cellular memory in the position you are sitting and where your hands are not to play the B, rather than to ‘see’ it. I have seen this work successfully for hundreds of students. It is quite an amazing system if followed properly. It isn’t about having everything sound perfect at the beginning!
