We are very pleased to have an opportunity this summer of 2014 to host our lyre conference in beautiful Portland, Oregon, at the Cedarwood Waldorf School (cedarwoodschool.org) from Wednesday evening, July 30 through Sunday morning, August 3. |
We will be welcoming an internationally-recognized master teacher Hajime Kira from Tokyo, Japan! Hajime was trained as a lyrist in Germany and was subsequently instrumental in bringing the work of the lyre to Japan and building it up
in an extraordinary way. Japan is now one of the flagship locations in the world for lyre teaching and playing. Hajime has presented workshops at all of our international lyre conferences, and those of us who have attended them have been introduced to remarkable techniques and exercises that have addressed all aspects of lyre playing,from technical skill building to tone production.
The Lyre Association is a non-profit organization that promotes the modern lyre and supports the lyre community. LANA seeks to vary its annual conference locations in an effort to reach as many lyrists as possible across North America, including those who are new to the instrument and would like to it take up for the first time. This summer will be LANA's first time to host a conference in the Pacific Northwest, in the beautiful city of Portland, Oregon.
In addition to our members, we warmly welcome all friends from the Pacific Northwest who may have an interest in the lyre but no previous experience. We would like to extend a special invitation to early childhood teachers who would like to be able to maximize the significant benefits of using the kinderharp in classroom work. This conference will provide a perfect initial exposure to to beauty and joy of playing this unique and healing instrument!
