Václava van der Meijs

Workshop: Harp for beginners
Václava will show newcomers to the harp some of the amazing things you can do with a harp, and that it is not as difficult as you may think! (There will be a number of harps to borrow for this workshop if you don’t have your own yet.)

VaclavaVáclava, also called Wendy, is from Prague and has been to all (but one) Nordic Harp Meetings so far. She plays harp, kantele, flute, accordion and lots of other instruments and sings. She has been member of the bands Harpa vieja, Treizh and *Gwen.

Previous teaching experience:
She gave harp workshops at the Prague harp meetings (2008, 2009, 2013), at some previous Nordic Harp Meetings (2009, 2012, 2015),  at Bernard’s summer school (2012, 2013, 2014), and at the International Harp Friends Meeting 2013 and 2014 in Leerdam, Netherlands. At the NHM 2014 in Gjøvik, she gave a workshop featuring some folk songs from Bohemia and Moravia (the two biggest regions of Czech republic) arranged for the harp. All tunes were taught by ear, with sheet music provided in the end.
