5-days from Sat 6th to Wed 10th April - 4:30pm

Merchiston Courses - Classroom Space


The class will discover ways to develop rhythmic, melodic and basic harmonic elements, with a natural, intuitive approach. We will use practical exercises for development within this particular genre, leading to the performance of some typically melodious pieces of Paraguayan music on all kinds of harp.

Tutor: Juanjo Corbalan - Juango and his brother Sexto have performed together since 2007. They maintain their special focus on the Paraguayan harp and continue to pioneer new composition and performance techniques. The combination of varying musical influences results in a surprising and colourful fusion of harmonies and rhythms, with a heart- and ear-catching sound still deeply rooted in their own musical heritage.
