This book is for the complete beginner. If you know nothing about music or the harp or lyre (and even the zither and kantele), you will be guided through the most basic information so that you will be able to play a song by the end of the book.
This book covers:
Parts of the Harp
Holding Your Instrument
Names of the Strings
How the Strings Correlate to the Notes on Sheet Music
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.
Was this helpful?
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!
