Ignite your Inspiration - and follow through on it!
It's hard to know what really works to increase your skill, especially as you advance. Whether you're a beginner, a harp teacher, or professional performer, our System teaches you:
• how to memorize for good
• how to play expressively
• how to integrate theory and technique into your playing
• how to organize your daily plus long-term practice
• how to finally manage performance anxiety!
Move beyond mere information: build your real-life skill and artistry.
“Inspiration, motivation, support, safety, harmony, truth, fun and a sense that everything comes from a place that is exquisitely genuine!” Kim R., Canada
Admittedly there are many obstacles that can prevent us from reaching our potential as harpists. We help you over these obstacles so that you continually increase your playing skills, confidence and inspiration.
"Community, support, insight, courage and belief." Emma G., England

Note: we're only accepting 20 new members this cycle so that we can continue to provide intent focus on each member.
"It is somehow reassuring that so many others in BKHC - many at a much higher performance level than mine - are asking the same questions in the group." Kate S., Arizona USA
For all harpists, burnout is a big hazard. Our System shows you how to rediscover your true harp Inspiration, reconnecting you to the very deepest reasons you play. This is the heart of real motivation.
“Thank you Diana and BKHC for giving me inspiration - I’m sure I just wouldn’t have found other ways to enhance my harping without you.” Lynn G., Scotland
“I find the trainings beautifully organized and to the point. What fascinates me is the way that almost all of the questions that are asked can be answered within the context of the 5 Steps and 5 Essential Elements of BKS. While I embrace a certain artistic temperament, I still like to have tables, charts, and circles (in particular!) in which to organize information."
“I have a habit of signing up for something, then regretting it, or not using it, but still getting charged forever. With BKHC, I have gotten way more than I ever imagined. I have improved skills, gotten more disciplined about practice, reached goals instead of reaching for goals."
“Results have been phenomenal. I have been motivated to daily practice, which in turn has given me confidence. My husband and daughters just say "WOW"! Nothing compares to what you get from BKHC."
"-Professional development in a broad range of musical skills with a harp focus.
-A greater focus on goals in teaching, performing and community work.
-Consolidation of harp resources including music and harps.
-Harp friends worldwide."
Helen M., Australia
Ideally, we would love everyone join us. However, please check below to see if this program is a good fit for you:
In addition to our trainings and Live Q&As, we're including these bonuses when you sign up (we only open 2X per year)
(email us at email@example.com if your question isn't answered below!)
BKHC starts Jan 15, 2020. On that date, the first BKS materials become available to you. You’ll be added to the Secret Facebook Group so that you can meet your community!
BKHC is an ongoing membership program. The foundational BKS cycle is 6 months, after which many members spiral through the BKS cycle again in advanced mode.
Members may leave at any time and may rejoin during the two short registration periods in January and July. [Reminder: Returning members rejoin at the new, higher rate. Ongoing members have their fee locked in at the low rate they joined at.]
Yes, BKHC is 99% online. Our goal is to deliver this powerful system to you as quickly, efficiently and as flexibly as possible. We've also done one retreat that was both in-person and online simultaneously, and it was fantastic, so I anticipate we will have more of these!
Nope! BKHC is streamlined, created for and used by real-world harpists. A clunky system isn’t sustainable or fun for anyone!
BKHC teaches you skill, not endless information.The 3 monthly trainings add up to around 30 minutes total. The monthly Live Q&A is approximately 1 hour. You’ll apply BKS straight into your practice, so there’s a lot of overlap between BKS and your usual practice.
Count on 3 hours/month of actively working through the trainings + Live Q&A, plus engaging with the BKHC community (optional yet highly recommended).
With BKS, you’ll practice more efficiently and get better results, huge time savers in the long run. On the other hand, you’ll be more motivated to practice in general, a wonderful possible hazard!
BKHC is online, so it fits flexibly into your schedule and respects your busy life. The only time-sensitive activity is the Live Q&A - even then, you can submit questions beforehand and listen later.
Trainings are short and effective, easy to work through even if you only grab a few minutes here and there. In fact, working in small chunks is at the core of BKS.
Trainings are available in video/audio/PDF formats for maximum convenience. You won't get left behind! As they say on Outlander, "catch up any time" ;)
Not at all! BKHC uses classic, proven principles that work for all levels and styles. In fact, the earlier you start using this System, the quicker your results.
Keep in mind that if you're a total beginner, you'll still need a 1-1 teacher for basic harp skills such as technique.
No, BKHC supports your teacher-student relationship, providing clarity and direction for your work together.
The 5 Elements and the 5 Steps are consistent with any style/level of playing, so there’s no conflict with what you’re working on with your teacher. BKHC does not offer 1-1 teaching. At BKHC, we’re strong advocates of your finding a 1-1 harp teacher to complement our BKS work.
Definitely, we have many harp teachers and performers who are beloved members!
Oftentimes, harp teachers and performers find themselves losing track of their personal dreams and goals. BKHC returns you to your true Purpose, setting you on a proven path of growth as a teacher AND an artist.
Plus, you can use our Bright Knowledge System in your studio so that your students progress even more - everyone wins!
We have many professional harpists in our Circle. Professional harpists consistently suffer from 2 problems: burnout + stress.
BKHC delivers the tools to reconnect your passion and Purpose, reigniting your inspiration and streamlining your musical life.
Bottom line, as professional harpists we often end up getting buffeted around by external demands (gigs, recording, taking care of business matters, etc.) BKHC reorients you to your artistic path.
Virtual Harp Summit (VHS) brings you fascinating harpists from all over the globe, conference-style. They each teach workshops on one theme per summit. Each summit contains a great deal of information; think of it as gathering your learning material.
Bright Knowledge Harp Circle (BKHC) is the learning system to master your material with. BKHC teaches you HOW to learn and stay inspired for the long term. BKHC offers you ongoing support and feedback, crucial to the learning process and motivation.
Breakthroughs you can expect as a Circle member:
“Here is my experience this afternoon when performing: I had a bit of nerves at the beginning and kept reminding myself of my Purpose in my mind and...it was wonderful! I felt so good that I stopped by a retirement residence I wanted to visit and played for them as well. They loved it and asked me back! Self-trust, working on it, yes, pure love and divine energy!” Helene D., Canada
"I wasn't sure if it would be worth the time, effort, and money. I thought about it the first round and decided against it - after all, there are thousands of online training programs - but by the time the second round came around, I knew I needed a shot in the arm with harp and also my other endeavors. I had had more experience with Diana as a teacher/online mentor, and felt that the value would be there. But honestly, the fact that Diana said it would apply to other areas of life was probably what pushed me to take the plunge.
I have resumed regular practice and clarified my sense of Purpose. Practice is more focused and purposeful and as a result I'm a better player, and definitely am going somewhere with my playing itself." Kristen R., Utah, USA
"I was concerned whether the program a good fit for me. It was difficult to envision what is "included/offered" because BKHC is more abstract than say a 6-week course on learning to count. Also, could I be disciplined enough for self-paced? Of course, cost is always a consideration, but when considered as an investment in me it really is minimal.
My results have included building courage to reach beyond my greatest fears. I’m putting the focus on my purpose and able to make guilt-free decisions that are in keeping with it. I’m looking at music from a different point of view. Not just dots on a page to be played. I love, love, love the community, discussions and sharing of information, plus being able to put the learning process in order. BKHC provides direction, encouragement and a solid foundation to build upon." Karen T., Michigan, USA
