I got the kit to build myself and it made for a very special harp for my daughter's birthday that she's wanted for years. I surprised myself for how well it turned out and how fun it was to build. I hope to do more in the future!

Have not yet received my lyre to try some of the songs, but after strumming through the pages; it looks like it is going to be a very helpful tool so I am glad I ordered it.

Book received in fine shape. Looks perfect for a beginner; now I know what parts I'll be touching when I attempt to make music on my Lyon & Healy secondhander. Learning to play a harp at age 76 is preparation for the next great event....maybe the Lord can add me to His orchestra!
