為什麼每年在音樂大廳(300座位)演出?

學生在舞台上的經驗,可以克服將來在社會上的壓力。這是成長必經的階段,透過克服面對群眾的壓力而踏出舞台,先至能夠對自己產生信心。

在一校一樂器的教育政策下,有一些香港傳統名校,除了學術成績外,更注重家長有沒有培養子女音樂 🎼修養。

為什麼學豎琴?

取得證書

         豎琴管弦樂團樂器可作獨奏。是一種體積撥弦樂器學員的水平標準,可透過英國皇家音樂學院ABRSM考試去認證自己的分數從而取得英國皇家音樂學院ABRSM證書第二,學員可以在世界各地大學音考取學士,碩士,博士的銜頭。

特別的技巧

彈奏豎琴是一門特別的技巧,初接觸,發現跟鋼琴一樣學習五線譜,數拍子,用左右手協調彈奏,概念雖然同,但彈琴的坐姿、指力、指、撥弦、泛音以及踏板與鋼琴大相逕庭,是一種趣味盎然,小眾又高貴的樂器。

藝術性

能與各類樂器合奏,諸如小提琴、長笛、中提琴、大提琴、薩克斯風。音樂家作家如德布西(Debussy)、拉威爾(Ravel)、韓德爾的降B大調協奏曲莫札特k.299在,最為人喜愛。

天使的樂器

      傳說中天使的樂器,演奏者彈奏時典雅矜持風度琴本身雅精緻,學員夢寐以求瑰麗高貴的藝術品。

彈奏技巧

由於琴弦本身並無支撐之處,很難無師自通,彈奏是必須以自己的手指頭作為主要支撐點,練習撥弦,所以手指、手腕、手踭的擺位及肩膊之放鬆十分重要,指力的養成十分重要。

好多人以為鋼琴與豎琴異曲同工,其實彈的坐姿、指力、指法、撥弦、泛音以及踏板技術,手法大相逕庭,極需要專業老師指導。否則適得其反,練習時只會弄傷自己。

技巧之琶音 Arpeggio

一個和弦的音符連續而不是同時發出,和弦的中斷或展開。

做法是不間斷地演奏所有和弦,除非它們之前有琶音符號。 然而,豎琴師將盡量超越超過她的手跨度彈和弦。

技巧之 Glissandos

演奏者必不可少的另一種技巧 – 滑音。 Glissandos 是從在兩個音符之間連續向上或向下滑動。

一個音符快速滑動到另一個音符,產生橫掃的聲音。 Glissandos 可以在任何琴弦上演奏,通過按下琴弦并快速向上或向下滑動指板來演奏。

Glissandos將樂譜變得更柔和或更響亮。 這可以通過用雙手施加更大的壓力或使用豎琴的弓來改變聲音的強度來完成。

通過掌握這些技巧,豎琴演奏者可以創造出範圍廣泛的音樂風格。

豎琴品種

二手豎琴
  • 牌子

第一挑選自己合適的豎牌子,全世界牌子五花八門,有不同的國家製造,學習者按自己的喜好,需要及經濟負擔能力去挑選自己喜歡的牌子。不同的牌子有不同的作法及材料。不同的牌子價錢更是大大不同,在世界上普遍受音樂家手喜愛的牌子,首先是歐洲及美國,其次是日本俄羅斯,最近幾年中國及巴基斯坦國家做的琴都出現在市場,買賣琴前要留意製造的國家

  • 年齡

第二,二手豎琴年齡,使用越久的應該畀一手琴價格更為便宜,購買二手琴前必須清楚,最好是要求賣方提交的出廠證明書及發票,以證明使用的實際時間,是否如賣方所說的日期

  • 豎琴結構

第三,要是留意結構是否完整無缺或遭受到破壞。要注意的地方是,音箱是否完整無缺,由於弦線拉力沈重,音箱要支持曠持日久拉力,保養不宜便會發生弦線拉破音箱的情況,共鳴板如果發生這樣的情況,這價值會十分低,因為不知道有哪一日他會完全徹底破裂,之後維修價格會十分昂貴,買方要絕對留心共鳴版破裂,否則任何價錢買回來的二手琴,變得不償失。買方可以憑肉眼觀察,看看賣方音箱表面有冇不尋常的突出,然後用手觸摸音箱表面,看上面有沒有裂痕,確保音箱完整無缺,買方更要嘗試彈奏,聆聽音箱裏面有沒有雜音.

  • 琴頸

第四,要留意琴頸有沒有歪曲傾斜,買方要用肉眼觀察看看音箱與琴頸是否正常連合,兩者之間的空間左右距離高低不平,如果發現有傾斜的成分,可能代表琴頸曾經受到撞擊。從而破壞了琴頸的結構,被破壞的琴頸結構,日後調音是十分困難

  • 金屬

第五,要留意樂器上面金屬的地方有沒有生鏽。樂器的金屬部份包括有,腳踏,調音柱,琴頸柱,變音轉盤。樂器經過一定的日子,金屬會有氧化的機會,要看賣方過往保養是否小心,如果金屬部分有生鏽情況的話,需要打磨除銹,或者更換部分零件,買家需要計算這一定的成本在內。

  • 試彈

第六點,,要試彈樂器,聆聽有沒有音色差異,常見的問題是彈就是發生嗡嗡聲,買方應該詢問賣家此嗡嗡聲的原因,及要求賣方在出售之前修理完畢

  • 原廠保養

第七點詢問最近的原廠保養日子,一部豎琴日子久了需要原廠保養,特別是腳踏豎琴,日子久了需要原廠維修員保養,更換腳踏絨布,如果二手樂器沒有做過原廠保養,買家需要計算這成本在內

  • 外觀

第八點,檢查樂器的外觀,如意以上結構完整,音色正確,注意的事是樂器整體的美觀,看看有沒有少量的刮花或撞凹的痕跡

  • 運輸

第九點,運輸安排,完成買賣後,需要安排運送樂器回家,樂器最好是直立運送,迫於無奈情況的下,可以使琴躺臥運送,但要注意不要將金屬及音鍵機械操作的地方面向車底,否則會壓爛零件,因為豎琴的半音建及機械零件十分昂貴。

  • 二手價值

最後,要衡量買回來的樂器是否仍然有二手價值,普遍學習的人,最初由小開始,然後到中型,之後到腳踏豎琴,當自己的技術更進一步時候就會賣出手上的樂器,換取更大的琴,學生就會有當初二手琴的買家成為二手樂器的賣家,所以挑選一個深受大眾歡迎的豎琴牌子及型號,對日後的交易十分重要。

搬運豎琴

豎琴是一種高價值的樂器,因此在運送和搬運過程中需要特別注意,以確保其安全。本文將探討運送及搬運豎琴時需要注意的地方。

  • 首先,豎琴需要進行安全包裝,以防止在運輸過程中受到損傷。包裝材料應該選擇符合豎琴尺寸和形狀的材料,以確保包裝緊密但不過緊。在包裝豎琴時,應避免壓壞琴弦和琴橋,以免對樂器造成損害。
  • 其次,搬運豎琴需要使用專業工具和技巧。豎琴比較笨重,需要使用專業搬運工具和配備,以減少對琴身造成損傷。最好由專業的搬運公司或專業人士進行搬運。
  • 第三,豎琴對溫度和濕度非常敏感,因此在運輸過程中需要注意控制環境。在運輸豎琴時,應該避免暴露在高溫、低溫、高濕度或低濕度的環境中,以免豎琴受潮、受熱、變形或產生裂紋。
  • 第四,需要避免碰撞和震動。豎琴容易受到碰撞和震動的影響,因此在運輸和搬運過程中要注意避免碰撞和震動。可以在琴箱中加入緩衝材料,減少琴身受到的震動。
  • 最後,需要注意豎琴的平衡。豎琴的琴橋是支撐琴弦的重要構件,因此在搬運時應該確保琴橋的位置穩定,不會產生移位或破損。同時,搬運人員應該掌握好搬運豎琴的力度,避免因施力過大或不當而對琴身造成損傷。

綜上所述,運送及搬運豎琴需要注意的地方很多,需要有專業知識和豐富的經驗。

有效地安排練習豎琴

有效地安排豎琴練習時間是提升技巧和發展音樂才能的關鍵。以下提供一些建議,以幫助你有效組織練習計劃:

  1. 設定明確的目標:在開始豎琴練習之前,明確確定你的目標。無論是學習新曲目、提高技巧、加強表演能力,還是探索不同的音樂風格,確定目標有助於你有針對性地組織練習計劃。

豎琴的迷人演進:探索其迷人的歷史與現代發展

豎琴是一種真正迷人的樂器,數千年來一直迷住著全世界的聽眾。憑藉其閃爍的音調和優雅的外觀,豎琴有著悠久而迷人的歷史。隨著時間的推移,這種樂器經歷了重大的發展,推動了其能力的界限,提升了它作為古典和現代音樂中最受喜愛的樂器之一的地位。

豎琴的歷史可以追溯到古埃及和美索不達米亞等古代文明,那里它被尊為皇室和精神象徵。這些早期的豎琴設計簡單,由木製框架和用腸或頭髮等天然材料制成的琴弦組成。隨著文明的繁榮,豎琴也發展成更加複雜和精湛的樂器。

豎琴在中世紀時取得了重大的進展。在樂器的框架中加入了柱子或支柱,使琴弦張力得以增加,從而使豎琴能夠產生更大聲和更有共鳴的聲音。這一進步為創建能演奏西方音樂音階的半音音符的調性豎琴鋪平了道路。

19世紀引入了雙動踏板豎琴,再次革命了這種樂器。這一創新使豎琴演奏者能夠改變琴弦的音高,使他們能夠在不重新調音的情況下演奏不同的調性。雙動踏板豎琴很快成為專業豎琴演奏者的標準,提供更多的靈活性,擴展了豎琴的音樂可能性。

近年來,豎琴在現代發展中繼續演進。電子豎琴越來越受歡迎,提供了獨特而現代的聲音。這些豎琴通常配備拾音器或內置的放大系統,可以更好地控制音調和音量。一些電子豎琴甚至結合數字技術,使豎琴演奏者能夠產生各種樂器音色和效果。

此外,搖桿豎琴作為踏板豎琴的多功能和便攜替代品受到認可。搖桿豎琴的搖桿位於琴弦附近,可以觸發半音音符提高某個特定琴弦的音高。雖然搖桿豎琴的琴弦較少,音域也較有限,但它為各級音樂家提供了一種更易接觸和負擔得起的選擇。

如今,豎琴在各種音樂風格中持續迷住了觀眾,從古典和管弦樂到民俗、爵士甚至流行音樂。其空靈而舒緩的音調具有將聽眾帶入遙遠世界、喚起情感和營造寧靜感的力量。

The harp is a truly enchanting musical instrument that has captivated audiences around the world for centuries. With its shimmering tones and graceful appearance, the harp has a rich and fascinating history that dates back thousands of years. Over time, the instrument has undergone significant developments, pushing the boundaries of its capabilities and elevating its status as one of the most beloved instruments in classical and contemporary music.

The history of the harp can be traced back to ancient civilizations such as Egypt and Mesopotamia, where it was revered as a symbol of royalty and spirituality. These early harps had a simple design, featuring a wooden frame and strings made from natural materials such as gut or hair. As civilizations flourished, so did the harp, evolving into more complex and sophisticated instruments.

It was during the Middle Ages that the harp made significant advancements. The addition of a column or pillar in the instrument’s frame allowed for increased string tension, enabling the harp to produce a louder and more resonant sound. This development paved the way for the chromatic harp, which included additional strings to play the chromatic notes of the Western musical scale.

In the 19th century, the double-action pedal harp was introduced, revolutionizing the instrument once again. This innovation allowed harpists to change the pitch of strings, enabling them to play in different keys without re-tuning the instrument. The double-action pedal harp quickly became the standard for professional harpists, offering greater versatility and expanding the harp’s musical possibilities.

In recent times, the harp has continued to evolve with modern developments. Electric harps have gained popularity, offering a unique and contemporary sound. These harps are often equipped with pickups or built-in amplification systems, allowing for greater control over tone and volume. Some electric harps even incorporate digital technology, enabling harpists to produce a wide range of instrumental sounds and effects.

Additionally, the lever harp has gained recognition as a versatile and portable alternative to the pedal harp. Lever harps feature levers located near the strings that can be engaged to raise the pitch of a specific string by a half step. While lever harps have fewer strings and a more limited range than pedal harps, they offer a more accessible and affordable option for musicians of all levels.

Today, the harp continues to enchant audiences across genres, from classical and orchestral music to folk, jazz, and even popular music. Its ethereal and soothing tones have the power to transport listeners to distant realms, evoking emotions and creating a sense of tranquility.

The enchanting evolution of the harp is a testament to the instrument’s enduring beauty and versatility.

It was during the Renaissance that the harp underwent significant changes that contributed to its increasing popularity. At this time, the harp acquired the characteristic curved shape and the addition of more strings, as well as the invention of the pedal mechanism. This revolutionary mechanism allowed harpists to change the pitch of a string while playing, vastly expanding the range of musical possibilities.

By the 19th century, the harp underwent further advancements, notably with the introduction of double-action pedals. This innovation enabled harpists to change the pitch of each string by one or two half-steps, increasing the versatility and ease of playing complex pieces of music. Eventually, advancements in materials and construction techniques led to the development of contemporary concert grand harps, with up to 47 strings and an extended range to encompass various musical styles and genres.

In recent times, modern technology has played a significant role in furthering the evolution of the harp. Electric and electroacoustic harps have gained popularity, providing musicians with greater amplification and sound manipulation capabilities. Moreover, the use of carbon fiber and other lightweight materials has made harps more portable and durable, enabling harpists to explore new genres and perform in diverse venues.

The harp, with its timeless beauty and ethereal sound, has captivated hearts for centuries. From ancient civilizations to modern orchestras, this enchanting instrument has undergone a fascinating evolution, both in terms of its history and modern developments.

The history of the harp can be traced back to ancient Mesopotamia, where it was depicted in artworks and played by skilled musicians. As civilizations flourished, the harp found its way into the hands of the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans, becoming an integral part of their cultural expressions. Its mesmerizing melodies were believed to have healing powers and were often associated with the divine.

During the Middle Ages, the harp underwent significant changes. The introduction of gut strings, which replaced the traditional hair strings, brought a new level of resonance and clarity to the instrument. It also became smaller and more portable, making it popular in both courtly settings and everyday life.

In the Renaissance period, the harp experienced profound advancements. More strings were added, allowing for a wider range of notes and greater complexity in playing. Composers started writing specifically for the instrument, firmly establishing its place in classical music.

The Industrial Revolution in the 19th century brought further innovations to the harp. The introduction of pedals, patented by Sébastien Érard in 1810, allowed harpists to change the pitch of individual strings, greatly expanding the instrument’s tonal possibilities. This advancement gave birth to the pedal harp as we know it today, with its characteristic grand size and majestic appearance.

In recent times, modern technology has continued to shape the evolution of the harp. Electric harps, constructed with innovative materials such as carbon fiber, have emerged, offering new possibilities in both sound and design. They can be amplified, allowing harpists to perform in larger venues, and they often incorporate electronic effects, opening up avenues for experimentation and pushing the boundaries of traditional harp music.

Additionally, contemporary composers and performers have been exploring unconventional playing techniques, expanding the harp’s expressive capabilities. From plucking strings with various objects to using extended techniques such as harmonics and glissandos, the modern harp has become a more versatile instrument, capable of producing a wide array of sounds.

Despite all the advancements, the enchanting qualities that first endeared the harp to humanity remain as potent as ever. Its heavenly tones continue to mesmerize audiences around the world, whether in the grand halls of symphony orchestras or in the intimate settings of solo performances.

As we delve into the rich history and modern developments of the harp, we gain a deeper appreciation for this instrument’s enduring allure. Its evolution has seen countless changes and innovations, yet its enchanting melodies continue to echo through the passages of time, captivating and inspiring all who have the pleasure of listening to its ethereal sound.
