Greetings from Sylvia Woods . . .
How does that old saying go? “The only thing constant in life is change,”
or, in my case, returning full circle. When I started my harp business over 30
years ago, I was selling harps out of my tiny house in Glendale. After I wrote
my Teach Yourself to Play the Folk Harp book, I created a mail order catalog
and began shipping products out of my spare bedroom. I eventually moved to
a larger house, and ran the mail order business out of a guest house in the back,
selling harps in my living room. This was the way my business ran for over 15
years. In 1992 we opened our Glendale retail store, and once again, my house
was just a house! Two years ago, we moved the store to a smaller location in La Crescenta. And
now, at the end of July, 2010, we moved again. My business has now gone full circle, and I'm
returning to my roots. Once again, I'm running my harp business from my home. My living room
and dining room are now the harp showroom, and the mail order business is in my guest house.
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU: 99% of our customers did not even notice the change.
We continue to take your orders through our website and over the phone, and provide you with
our stellar customer service. You can contact us by phone or email with any questions you may
have. You can still make an appointment to come and see and try out the harps. You'll just be coming to my house, instead of a storefront. And you'll get personal one-on-one service directly from
me! I'll be happy to help you pick out the best harp for you. (See page 3 for more information.)
Having a retail storefront for almost 20 years has been an amazing experience. I cherish the
friendships I have made with customers who have been regular visitors to my store. I hope that
all of you will help me embrace this change, and allow me to continue to fulfill all of your harp
wants and needs. The economy has effected us all in different ways. With a vast majority of our
orders coming through the Internet, these changes will allow me to continue to service the worldwide harp community for many years to come. Change is never easy for any of us. But I hope I'll
continue to have your business and your support as I return to my roots to give you the best harp
customer service on the planet!
And now, on to other fun subjects! We’ve been getting great feedback from customers who
have taken advantage of our “Harp Essentials” program when they purchased their new harps
from us. See page 20 or go to www.harpcenter.com/essentials for details on this wonderful
opportunity to save 20% on items such as benches, electronic tuners, extra strings, music stands
and more, with your next harp purchase!
Our e-mail newsletter includes money-saving coupons for use on our website, along with news
and product information. You can sign up to receive this fun monthly e-mail newsletter through
the subscribe box in the right-hand column of our website.
Don’t know what to buy for that special harpist? How about a handy Harp Center E-Gift
Certificate! You can purchase and redeem them on our website. We’ll e-mail the certificate number to the recipient along with a personal note from you! Then they can use your generous gift to
purchase anything on our website. See harpcenter.com/giftcertificates for more information.
As always, when you order from the Sylvia Woods Harp Center, we make every effort to get
your order out to you as quickly and accurately as possible. On business days, most orders are
shipped within 24 hours. Our products come with a money-back guarantee (see page 110 for
more information).
The easiest way to order is through our harpcenter.com website. Because many prices and
products change during the year, some of the items in this annual catalog may be out of date
before our next catalog. Our website always has the most current prices, products, and shipping
information, and www.harpcenter.com/new shows you our most recent product additions.
Winston Churchill once said, “to improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.” We
may have changed our location, but we’re still here to serve all your harp needs, and plan to continue for a very long time! You can still place your order by phone or on our web site. You can
still make an appointment with me to come to see our harps. And . . . you'll still get our amazing,
personalized Sylvia Woods Harp Center service that you love!

Meditation & Relaxation Recordings
Paul Baker
These unique recordings for meditation and relaxation by Paul Baker
contain harp improvisations played on a Dusty Strings FH36B lever
harp. They were recorded in a large, live acoustic space without any
added electronic effects or reverb, presenting a wonderful, true, “real harp” sound. Each recording
presents 8 to 10 improvisations in keys correlating with the frequencies of color and the energetic
centers of the body. The improvisations are designed to ground your body, open and tune your
mind, balance your emotions and soothe your spirit. Each track is also provided with a suggested
meditation. These CDs can be used as a tool for study, meditation, relaxation, or just pure musical
enjoyment.
Paul’s CDs are available as mp3 audio downloads at www.harpcenter.com/mp3s
In The Tranquil Harp, the pure, harmonically rich
harp sounds played at a slow regular pulse (about
60 beats per minute) encourage alpha wave activity
in the brain, resulting in greater relaxation, clarity,
focus and concentration. The improvisations are
named for gem stones and crystals.
Four of the tracks on The Quiet Path combine the resonance of the Celtic harp with
the deep beauty and sonority of the cello.
These tracks focus on the energy of the
heart and weave together with the solo
harp improvisations to relax & rejuvenate.

Harps are probably the most ancient stringed
instruments. Their beautiful sound and graceful
aesthetic form have magically enticed man for
centuries. And even today, that fascination lives on. Harps in Ireland and Scotland, in the form that
we now know them, were first evident in the 9th century AD. These early harps were strung with
metal strings, and the sound box was usually carved from a single log. They were a focal point of
Celtic music, reaching their greatest use between 1000 and 1750 AD. A bit later, these small harps
were strung with gut and played in the royal courts of Europe. Gradually, they evolved into the
pedal harp used today in orchestras. Celtic, lever, or folk harps have recently made a resurgence
in the music world. A wide variety of music is played on these instruments, including classical, folk,
medieval, Renaissance, popular, Celtic, and original music.
Harps are tuned diatonically: a “do re mi” scale like the piano’s white keys. The strings are colorcoded to help you find your way. C’s are red, and F’s are blue or black.
Basic Harp Information
Lever harps (also called Celtic harps, folk harps, or Irish harps) usually have sharping levers
on each string which can be used to raise the pitch of the string one-half step, making a sharp.
(See pg 21 for more info on levers.) All of the harps in our catalog are lever harps with nylon strings.
Pedal harps are the harps that you see in an orchestra. They are made out of maple wood,
with beautiful veneers or wood finishes added, and some also have gold leaf applied. They have
between 40 and 47 strings. The largest of these harps have over 6 octaves of strings, and weigh
about 85 to 90 pounds. There are 7 pedals on every pedal harp, which are moved by the harpist’s
feet; one pedal for each of the 7 notes in the scale. Three of the pedals are controlled by the left
foot, and four by the right. The pedals move discs on the neck of the harp which shorten or lengthen the sounding length of the strings, providing sharps, naturals, and flats. Each pedal has 3 positions which are held in place by notches in the base of the harp and by springs. For example, the
pedal on the far right of the harp is the “A” pedal. When this pedal is in the highest of its three
notches, all the “A” strings on the harp will sound as “A-flat.” When the harpist moves this pedal
into its middle notch, the discs on each of the “A” strings engage, shortening the sounding length
of all of the “A” strings, giving them the pitch of “A-natural.” When this pedal is in the lowest notch,
the string lengths are again shortened by the discs, and all of the “A” strings will be “A-sharp.” By
using the pedals, the accomplished harpist can play very chromatic music.
PLEASE NOTE: We are no longer selling pedal harps. You can order Lyon & Healy harps directly from
www.HarpInLa.com, or call Heidi at (818) 495-4652.
TUNING YOUR LEVER HARP
Many people tune their lever harps to the key of C, and then use their sharping levers to play
in sharp keys. Another common method is to tune to flat keys. To do this, when you tune your
harp, tune down the strings you want flat by one-half-step. For example, tune all of your B
strings to B-flat (on an electronic tuner, this will register as A-sharp). Then, when you use a
sharping lever on any of these strings, the lever will raise the pitch to a natural. If you have
sharping levers on each string, and your tune to 3 flats (B-flat, E-flat and A-flat), you can
play in any key from 3 flats up to 4 sharps. For more information, watch Sylvia Woods’ video
#2C: “Tuning Your Lever Harp to C or Flat Keys” at harpcenter.com/InfoVideos

Sharping Levers.
The purpose of a sharping lever is to shorten the sounding length of a string
on a lever harp, raising the pitch one half step, allowing you to play in different keys without re-tuning.
 Loveland levers, installed on the Dusty Strings harps, have been the industry
 Camac levers, installed on the Triplett Christina harp, are nickel-plated solid metal
and have a smooth, quiet action. Tone quality is virtually unaltered with the lever engaged,
and the sharping action maintains string alignment. C and F lever handles are clearly designated with red and blue bands, making them extremely easy to see. 
 Robinson levers are made of brass. The lever handle is flat with a rounded head.
Even though they are not as comfortable to use as the other levers, their low cost makes
them a good addition to harps like Sharpsicles to help keep down the price of the harp.

from the Sylvia Woods Harp Center or the harp
maker. Using incorrect strings will void any warranty. Broken strings are a common occurrence,
and are not included in the warranty. Strings are

reddish in color with an even grain. Maple is cream
colored, even in grain. Bubinga is an African hardwood with a beautiful reddish-rosy-brown color.

Dusty Strings FH34 Harp
Dusty Strings FH26 Harp
The FH34, Dusty Strings' compact 4¾ octave, all
solid-wood harp delivers brightness, depth & clarity,
and has a great playing range. This harp will satisfy
both the professional & beginner with its resonance
and power, and will please the most discerning eye
with a tasteful display of fine woodworking. This harp
is the same overall size as its well-loved 32-string
predecessor, but now goes down to the low C in the
bass. For playing comfort, Dusty Strings added
facets on the upper corners of the back. This
“hybrid-stave” design provides the ergonomic benefits of their popular 36-string stave back harp at a
portion of the cost. To keep the carrying size down,
the FH34 includes an innovative stand that has
removable feet and nestles into the base of the harp,
attaching in seconds with the twist of a knob and
without needing to turn the harp upside down.
This 26-string, 3½ octave harp has a
sweet and surprisingly strong voice, with
the added resonance that comes from all
solid-wood construction. Complete with
carrying case and full sharping levers,
the FH26 can serve as a full-voiced
beginner’s harp or a high-quality,
portable harp for the established player.
A child can set the FH26 on the floor and
play comfortably while seated in a small
chair. An adult seated in a standard
height chair will want to use a small stool
or the optional leg set to raise the harp to
a comfortable playing position.

HARPS
The Allegro 26 and Crescendo 34 have laminated Finland birch soundboards, with backs, sides,
necks, and pillars of solid sapele, which is very similar to mahogany. The addition of solid sides
and back gives these harps more resonance and clarity when compared to the all-laminated
soundbox of the Ravenna series. The Allegro has a square back, and the Crescendo 34 has a
faceted hybrid-stave back. (See page 23 for a photo of a hybrid-stave back.)

There are two Ravenna models by Dusty Strings: a 26-string with 1 octave
below middle C (shown on right), and a 34-string with 2 octaves below middle C (shown below). The Ravenna harps are perfect for the discriminating
and budget-minded beginner, traveler, teacher, or student. They fill many
needs with their affordability, reliability, portability, and most importantly
their rich and satisfying sound. The stave-back soundbox and the unique
drop-down playing leg make for great playing comfort and versatility. These
harps are crafted with a solid ash neck and pillar, laminated birch soundbox with ash-grained vinyl veneer, and a laminated birch soundboard.
Dusty Strings’ characteristic bright, full sound, tuning stability, even tension
across the strings, and meticulous craftsmanship make the Ravenna harps
a great value. Full sets of Loveland sharping levers are optional on the
Ravennas. All the lever holes are pre-drilled, making it easy to add levers
at a later date. Ravenna harps have a 2-year warranty.
An extremely innovative and useful feature of these remarkable harps is
the built-in leg, which drops smoothly into place for convenient and adjustable playing support. The harp can be quickly and easily adjusted to
your correct playing height, without the hassle of additional legs or stools. The leg
easily slides out of the way, back inside the harp, when not in use. The optional long
leg for the Ravenna 26 offers an additional 12" of height to allow comfortable and
stable stand-up playing for teaching, performing, or bedside work. You can order the
long leg at any time and install it yourself ($65), or
order your harp to come with the long leg installed

Christina Therapy Harp by Triplett Harps
Triplett Harps has been designing & building high-quality instruments
since 1980. Their harps are designed with consideration for tonal
excellence, graceful lines, and fine workmanship.
The Christina Harp was designed as a therapy harp, and this little
gem is also a great small harp for the beginner to advanced harpist.
It has a light string tension with 25 strings ranging from C below middle C up to F. The strategically placed quick release strap buttons
enable the harp to be easily supported while playing, whether you are
sitting or standing.
Each string eyelet is decorated with a
wood burned Celtic knot design, and
the neck has a beautiful Celtic cross
inlay. Engraved roses are optional at
$100. (See photo below.)
The Christina has a laminate Baltic
birch soundboard, and is available in
several woods. Cherry and walnut are
the lightest in weight. Maple is heavier,
and bubinga will be the heaviest, making the harp weigh about 9 pounds with full levers. The Christina
harp comes with a 7-year warranty on materials and workmanship.
The foldable, easy-to-use case has a heavy cordura exterior with a dense, synthetic fleece interior. The tuning pin area is protected with naugahyde lining and the zipper has an inside flap. There
are 3 sets of handles and a zippered pocket. Backpack straps may be added when ordered for $25.
The harp comes in cherry, walnut, maple or bubinga, and
includes a full set of Camac levers, case, lap bar, and strap.

Strings for these harps are ordered by octaves. The 1st octave is the highest. Octaves run from

of 2 notes above the 1st octave.)

Tuners, Metronomes, Pick-Ups and Accessories
With these chromatic tuners, you can accurately tune your harp or other instrument. With all of our
tuners, you can use the built-in microphone, or plug in a Tuning Pick-Up (see below) for a clearer
reading. See Sylvia’s videos on how to tune and use a tuner at www.harpcenter.com/InfoVideos
BOSS TU-12EX Tuner with Accu-Pitch
The TU-12EX will help you quickly and accurately tune any harp. It includes Accu-Pitch: the tuner
beeps when the pitch is within 3 cents of the correct pitch. It will also play pitches if you want to
tune by ear. It is about 6" x 2" x 1", weighs 5 oz, comes with a soft case, runs on 2 AAA batteries
(included) or with the optional AC adapter, and has has a battery-saving Auto-Off feature.
Pedal harpists: Pedal harps should be tuned with the pedals in the flat position. This can be confusing, but with the TU-12EX, it’s easy! Set the tuner to "1 flat," put your pedals in the highest notch,
and your C string will now register as "C" on the tuner,
but it will actually be tuned to a C-flat. Of course, you can
use this tuner in the "normal" way, as well.

This Korg tuner is very economical,

The versatile TM-40 combines an electronic tuner and a

weighing only 4 oz. and measuring about 41/2" x 3". The
tuner has a large LCD screen with a needle and LED
lights. It will also produce a tuning pitch. The metronome
contains 13 types of rhythms with 0-7 beats/measure,
and the tempo is easy to adjust. "Tap Tempo" lets you
detect and set the desired tempo easily. A small pull-out

Tuning Pick-Up
Any electronic tuner will work better with a pick-up that clips directly onto
your harp. Your harp then is isolated from nearby sound, allowing easy
tuning, even during orchestral warm-ups! Our Korg pick-up will plug into
any electronic tuner. It opens wide enough to clip to the sound hole in the back of any harp. The
65" cord gives you ample room to position your tuner. (This clip will not work to amplify a harp.)

Fishman Pick-Up and Pre-Amps
Pick-up: The Fishman harp transducer is a "stick-on" pick-up that preserves the
natural, acoustic, tonal character of the harp. The pick-up (shown at the top of the
photo) and the cable connection jack (shown at the bottom) mount easily on the
inside of the soundbox with double-sided tape (included), for semi-permanent installation. You will
need to purchase an instrument cable (see pg. 31) to connect the pick-up to your amp or pre-amp.
Pre-Amps: Using a pre-amp along with your pick-up will usually make your harp
sound better, and give you volume and tone control at your fingertips. Our preamp, designed for acoustic instruments is perfect for most harp players. It is powered by a 9 volt battery, or use the adapter that we sell with the BOSS tuner
(above). You will need 2 instrument cables (pg. 31) to connect the pre-amp to your
pick-up and amp. Save $30 with the set.

Color Rings for Tuning Pins or Levers
Custom made in red & blue (or black), like the C & F strings, these small rubber
rings are designed to slip onto your harp's tuning pins or Loveland lever handles.
When used on the tuning pins (shown on left), they give you a color cue on that side of
the harp to assist you when tuning. If you ever have trouble figuring out “which pin is
which” when tuning, you’ll LOVE these rings!
When used on the sharping levers (shown on right) they provide a quick visual reference, which can be a life-saver in low light situations or when quick lever flips are
needed. These rings position well on Loveland levers. They also fit on Robinson and
Truitt levers, but they slide up and down the shaft as you raise and lower those levers.
Each pack has 14 rings. Most lever harpists like the red & blue set. Pedal harpists
tend to prefer the red and black rings for their tuning pins. Those who want a more
subtle, but effective, tactile cue, like the all-black set. Many customers have bought
2 sets for each of their harps: one for their levers, and another for their tuning pins.

Accidental Rings. Do you have trouble seeing (or remembering!) the sharping levers you need
to engage in the middle of a piece? If so, you'll love our white and yellow Accidental
Rings. Take the anxiety out of flipping levers on the fly. Just slip these bright rings on
the appropriate lever handles before you begin to play a piece to give you a visual
reminder of which ones you'll need to change. Because they are slightly larger in
diameter than our other rings, you can easily install and remove them between pieces.
You can even put them on a lever that already has a red, blue, or black ring! (Shown
on left.) Designed for use on Loveland levers, they will also work on Truitt and
Robinson levers, although the rings tend to slide up and down the shaft as you raise
and lower these levers. Each pack comes with 10 rings: 5 white and 5 bright yellow.

Kart-a-Bag Folk Harp Cart
This collapsible dolly is perfect for hauling your folk harp
around. We would not suggest this for your pedal harp (or
for very large, heavy lever harps such as the Prelude or
Troubadour), but this compact dolly will make maneuvering
your folk harp through the most congested of areas a lot
easier. Weighing only 16 pounds, the Kart-a-Bag is a lightweight and easy-to-use dolly which can carry up to a 300pound load. 48" in height with an almost 16" x 13" base, the Karta-Bag comes with two attached bungee cords to help secure your
harp. It is constructed of heavy duty aluminum rods and double thick
chrome plated steel wire, hand welded for extraordinary strength. Solidly built, the
Kart-a-Bag’s telescoping handles can easily and quickly fold the dolly down to 16"
x 21" x 8". An added great feature of this wonderful cart is the rear platform. With
two 3" swivel casters, the back platform may be folded down into a locked position
to function as a 4-wheel dolly for added stability, as shown at right with a Dusty Strings FH36 Harp.
(Harp and case not included.) Our carts are custom-fitted with an extended handle
with two rubber bike-type grips for comfort & easy maneuverability. Made in the
USA with a 10-year limited warranty against manufacturing defects. We cannot gift
wrap this cart. Sylvia Woods LOVES her Kart, and can’t imagine taking her Dusty
Strings harp out without it! Never leave your harp unattended on ANY harp cart!

This just may be the greatest
musician’s chair ever! A cellist
designed this innovative chair
especially for musicians. The
lightly padded seat can be set
flat, or at a slight forward angle.
The padded back gives you
enough support to help you sit
correctly, making it comfortable
for those long gigs or practice sessions. And on top
of all that, this sturdy chair also folds up neatly, for
convenient transport and storage! (See photo
below.) Buttons on the legs adjust the leg height in
1" increments, allowing you to adjust the chair to suit
you comfortably. The seat front adjusts from 15" to
20" high, so it will fit both children and adults. This
well-designed, comfortable, sturdy, easy-to-use,

Adjustrite
Stool
This
adjustable
padded stool is
great for kids, or
anyone who wants
to sit at a lower
height while playing their harp. Designed
by the makers of the Adjustrite Musician’s
Chair (see left), the top of this stool is 14"
square with about 2" of padding. Buttons
on the legs allow you to easily adjust the
leg height in 1" increments to make the
stool 12", 13" or 14" tall. This comfortable, sturdy stool does not fold flat, but its
small size and relatively light weight of
6.35 pounds still makes it easy to transport. You can also place your small harp
on this stool to raise it to a more comfortable playing position while you are sitting
on another bench or chair. However, due
to the padding, you should never leave
your harp unattended on the stool. Minor
assembly required.

All-Weather Space Blanket for Your Harp
The “All Weather Space Blanket” is silver reflective on one side, and blue on the other side. When
wrapped around a person with the silver side of the blanket “in,” it will reflect and retain over 80%
of radiated body heat to keep a person warm and protected, even in sub-zero temperatures.
However, our main use for this amazing blanket is to keep heat OUT and away from our harps: use
the blanket with the silver side “OUT” to reflect the sunlight away from the harp.
This lightweight, durable, waterproof, soil resistant, and windproof four-ply laminated blanket weighs just 10 ounces. It is 56" x 84" when opened and has full
edge binding and grommeted corners. It can also be used as a ground
cover to protect your harp from dirt and dampness. PLEASE NOTE: The
space blanket will help protect your harp from the direct sunlight coming
through the windows. However, it will NOT keep your harp
cool in a hot parked car.
#8387B Space Blanket $12.50
Don’t even THINK of ever leaving your harp in a parked car.
Picks for Glissandos
No, you don’t normally use a pick when you are playing the harp! But if you are
playing lots of glisses in an orchestra, a pick can save your fingers, and add volume
to your glisses. Some harpists like strumming with the pointed end, while others use
the wider flat end or corner. We now offer 2 types. Our hard white felt picks come 6
to a package, and our gray “Wedgie Rubber Picks” come in packs of 3. Be nice to
your fingers when playing repeated glisses: use our handy picks!

The Healing Musician
The Gift of Healing Modes
Built from the natural physics of sound,
healing modes are simple to understand
and powerful when played. Stella
Benson’s book “leads toward the ability to audibly
recognize the modes without looking at the score,
recognizing them by feeling, imagery, or experience
from that individual musician's life. For, when the
musician can hear a mode and know which mode is
sounding . . . then is when he/she has mastered the
modes.” The music in this unique book consists of
11 pieces, including Renaissance, Medieval, and
Celtic selections. Stella has made 7 arrangements
of each piece, one in each of the seven modes, for
a total of 77 modal music scores. So, for example,
Scarborough Fair is presented seven times. Since
this book is written for any musician, not just harp
players, the pieces do not include fingerings. An
additional section in the back of the book expands
on the harmonic accompaniment to keep the modal
character strong using only perfect intervals. 162
pages, spiral-bound.
These books of music by
Stella Benson present the
printed music from her The
Healer’s Way CDs (see page
10). In keeping with the healing music tenet “less is more,”
these easy arrangements are
accessible to all levels of
harpists or other musicians. Each piece is
musically analyzed to indicate the therapeutic possibilities. In the keys of 1 flat to
1 sharp, no fingerings.
Vol 1: Soothing music for those in pain
explains different types of healing music,
how music may affect the listener, and
how the healing musician can be guided
when observing the different types of pain,
including physical, emotional and spiritual.

#6416B Friou Exercises Book $19.95
Like any trained athlete, harpists need to spend
time stretching and warming up their muscles
before practicing or performing. Marcia
Dickstein’s carefully planned regimen for daily
warm-ups includes scales, 3 note and 4 note
patterns, rolled chords and inversions, arpeggios, 2 against 3 rhythms and more. All the
warm-ups are in the key of C and can be
played on either lever or pedal harps. An added
bonus is the inclusion of the pedal harp cadenzas from Tchaikovsky's “Waltz of the Flowers”
and “Swan Lake.” These work best on pedal
harp, but lever harp players can play most parts
of them with a few alterations. Lever harp players should ignore the 6 flats in the “Swan Lake”
key signature, and pretend that the key has 1
sharp (F#). The one C-natural accidental will
then be a C-sharp. 43 pages, paperbound.

Harp Music Books for Kids and Beginners
Colorful Adventures on the Harp
This innovative book is for young harp players
with no previous music experience. Bonnie
Mohr has printed the book with colored notes:
the F notes are blue, and the Cs are red. Some
of the pieces are well-known favorites such as
Mary Had a Little Lamb, and Amazing Grace.
Bonnie has also composed tunes & exercises
to reinforce the lessons. The book includes
both the treble and bass clefs, some basic
chords, and even the Alberti Bass pattern.
Near the end of the book, the students are
weaned away from the colored notes to prepare them for “regular” harp books. 70 pages,
comb-bound with a plastic cover protector.

Harp Olympics Books
These comprehensive books by master teachers Susann McDonald and Linda
Wood Rollo provide everything needed for a young beginning harp student. Each
volume is divided into “Work-Outs” (or exercises) for technique, “Games and
Drills” which are similar to note spellers and rhythm workbooks for note reading
and musicianship, and “Solo Rounds” which are easy progressive pieces. Each
weekly lesson should include pages from each section, as well as work on memorization and improvisation. “Marathons” at the end of each book serve as a
review of all the material covered, and include a certificate of completion. The
exercises and drills are presented in ways that are fun to play, and the whimsical
illustrations of bears throughout keep you smiling as you learn. The Preliminary Book is designed
for the beginning harpist who does not read music. A child who has played the piano for one or two
years, for example, should proceed directly to Stage 1. The books up through Stage 3 can be used
with either a lever or a pedal harp. There are only a few pieces in Stage 2 and 3 that require pedals, and these can be skipped or modified for students with lever harps. Stage 4 is only for pedal
harp. These books cover many subjects often overlooked in other beginning books, such as parts
of the harp, replacing strings, signs and symbols, and how to deal with problems such as blisters.
Each volume is about 80 to 100 pages, spiral-bound. We highly recommend these comprehensive
books for any child learning the harp.

Harpy Halloween
This fun book by Julie
Gaisford Keyes has
thirteen "Spooktacular
Songs" that teach
many of the "cool" special effects you can do
on the harp: putting paper in the strings, tuning
key slide, vibrato on the strings, "hooting" in the
back of your harp like an owl, and dozens
more! Each effect is explained in detail, and
there is also a chart in the appendix with over
30 symbols. An added bonus is a bag of tools
in the back of the book to be used to make the
special effects: a screwdriver, a cloth, paper,
and 5 plastic spirals. Each song has a
Halloween theme with funny lyrics and illustrations, and is arranged for beginning harpists.
But don't think this book is just for October . . .
or just for kids! It is a fun way to introduce harp
effects to players at all levels who are “young at
heart.” The pieces can be played on a pedal
harp or on a lever harp with a full set of sharping levers. Most of the pieces are in flat keys
or in special tunings. Spice up your next recital
with some "Spooktacular Songs!" 33 pages,
spiral-bound. A companion CD is included.

The Ancient
Music of Ireland
by Edward
Bunting
This book is an
unabridged replication
of the book originally
published in 1840. Edward Bunting (17731843), the first systematic collector of Irish
folksongs, was commissioned to notate
performances at the 1792 Belfast gathering
of traditional harp players. Unfortunately,
he later transcribed them for piano, so the
original harp transcriptions were lost. The
book includes 151 Irish airs arranged for
piano and playable on harp. This collection
is enriched by an invaluable 100-page preface: “A Dissertation on the Irish Harp and
Harpers, Including an “Account of the Old
Melodies of Ireland” with sections on “The
Method of Playing, and Musical Vocabulary
of the Old Irish Harpers,” “Anecdotes of the
More Distinguished Harpers of the Last
Two Centuries,” and more. Hard to find
elsewhere, this is an indispensible book not
only for students or lovers of Irish music,

Wire-Strung Harp
Coupled Hands for Harpers
by Ann Heymann
This book by Ann Heymann details a different
approach to playing the harp. Ann’s new technique calls for the use of both hands to express the
melody, taking full advantage of the harper’s
access to the same octave by both hands. This
allows the treble hand time to deal with subtleties
of expression such as ornamentation and variation, which is particularly advantageous when playing fast tunes. Ann introduces her approach gradually & progressively. Although particularly
geared for wire-strung harps, this technique
can be used on any type of harp. Included are
over 80 tunes from the British Isles arranged for
playing levels from experienced
novice to advanced. There are
also exercises, practice tips, a
notation index, and background
and historical information. 148
pages, wire spiral-bound. See
page 15 for one of Ann’s CDs of
wire-strung harp music.

Northern Dances by Kathryn Cater
This is a lovely medley of four traditional
Swedish and Norwegian tunes freely interpreted for harp. The tunes were handed down in
Ms. Cater's family from musical relatives who
played with true gusto and Scandinavian flair.
Although Kathryn arranged this music "for
pedal harp only," we discovered that the only
lever or pedal changes are between the pieces
in the medley, not in the tunes themselves.
Lever harp players can still play each piece
individually, just not put together into a medley.
They sound great! The pieces are in the following keys: C, 2 flats with an F#, G, and D. The
music is for intermediate players and includes

Scottish Suite
Laura Zaerr has combined two
Scottish tunes into this wonderful suite for 3
harps. Music of Spey is a fiddle tune by

Willafjord is a reel from the Shetland
Islands. The only lever changes are the G
naturals to modulate between songs from
the key of A (3 sharps) to D (2 sharps), and
you're given plenty of time to make these
changes. Fingerings are not included. The
Harp 1 and 2 parts are intermediate level,
and Harp 3 is very easy. The three parts
interweave into a beautiful, intricate whole.
Although this suite sounds the best with all
3 harp parts, it could also be adapted for 2
harps, without the Harp 3 part. The three
harp parts and the full score are all spiralbound together in one 40-page book. Each
player will need their own book.

Classical “Companion CDs”
The music on the following CDs was originally released on a 4-CD series entitled Easy
Pieces for the Harp, performed by Catherine Michel and Xavier de Maistre. These CDs
are now out of print. They have been re-formatted and split into 2 sets with different names: the
pieces recorded by Catherine Michel are now on three Pieces Faciles CDs, and those performed
by Xavier de Maistre are on two Pieces pour Harpe CDs. Don’t get confused by the
similar names of the 3 sets of CDs! These recordings were originally intended as
"companion CDs" for beginning & intermediate harp players to hear the repertoire
they are learning. But we think they are wonderful CDs in their own right.

DVDs
This DVD was derived
from 9 home videos
that were made in 1973, when Marcel Grandjany
was over 80 years of age. Because of 20 years’
deterioration, extensive editing was required to
salvage any of the footage. The quality of the
picture and audio is poor, but the contents are
priceless! The hands of Grandjany are captured
in this black-and-white DVD. We see and hear
the main aspects of his method through demonstration of his finger exercises and their application to the repertoire. This is an invaluable
resource for anyone learning Grandjany’s music
or methods. You’ll see his technique as he
teaches and plays short sections of 17 pieces.
See our website for a list of the music.

Jazzy Beginnings:
An Introduction to
Jazz Harp DVD
Felice
Pomeranz,
Associate Professor of harp at Berklee
College of Music, has created this DVD to
help develop a pedal harpist's basic skills of
improvising and playing, whether solo or in a
small group. The examples feature Felice's
jazz ensemble of harp, bass, drums, and
flute. She presents 3 original tunes, and
shows how the harp can play in a "groove,"
the importance of muffling, various chords
and voicings, and beginning improvisation.
There is a section devoted to suggested
ways to practice your scales, chords, and
pedaling. A helpful companion workbook can
be downloaded online. A basic knowledge of
scales, keys, and chords is needed to make
the most of this DVD. 54 minutes long.

William Mahan captures
the moods and Colors of
Italy in this book of gentle and flowing original
compositions. The music, along with William's
illustrations, will take you on a trip through the
Italian countryside. Each piece has a different
flavor or "color" matched with an Italian city.
Truly inspired, these compositions can be used
for any type of situation. The pieces, for intermediate players, are in the key of C or G, and
about half of them have several sharping lever
changes within the music. A few fingerings are
included. Most of the pieces are 2 to 4 pages
long. All the Colors of Rome is a gorgeous 7page performance piece, about 5 minutes long.
Mary Radspinner plays all of the
pieces on the companion CD.
