Think of Reverie Harp as more of a therapy tool for non-musicians than a musical instrument for musicians. We designed it specifically so that a person does not need to engage the mind to enjoy pleasant sounds. So the word "play" does not mean "perform" on this harp. You "play with" this harp. You can close your eyes and play with it - we call it "noodling around" on the strings. A child can play with it, a person with limitations can enjoy playing with it.
