“Oh my goodness, Martha, I had a smile on my face and just loved every minute of tonight's retreat! You've inspired me...!”
Seasons Attendee

What is Seasons of the Harp? An excellent question! I find myself continually redefining how I talk about this wonderful vision I have been sharing online. It started as a “virtual retreat” and has morphed into an online “retreat experience” and “creative lifestyle” for harp enthusiasts of all music styles and experience levels.

“(Martha) designed these [retreats] as something different from a conventional retreat and also from a harp workshop or class. It's lovely to experience but hard to describe; it was a delightful session and I'm looking forward to next week's!”
Summer Season Attendee

Each season’s 4-week online experience ranges from illuminating hands-on-harp activities to inspirations that will give rise to your inner joy, artistry and creativity.
You will delight in exploring and enjoying harp challenges, music, inspiring special guests, culinary delights, wellness wisdom and much more.
Inspired by the rhythms of the Seasons and infused with distinctive seasonal influences, each “season” has a wonderfully organic, natural feel and flow.

“There were so many "light bulb" moments, and I love the overall tone, which comes directly from you and your openness and enthusiasm.”
Summer Season Attendee

Explore and experience new perspectives on music, creativity and playing the harp that will take you beyond the technical and into the transformational!

And all while having a whole lot of fun!

If you hear your heart saying “YES!” then this virtual creative retreat may be just what you’ve been yearning for!

More important than technical playing level, this retreat series is about the level of inspiration, creativity, vibrancy and enjoyment that a player seeks, from Fledgling to Advanced.
