Folk Harp for the Young Beginner (Beginning)

by Star Edwards

Folk Harp for the Young Beginner is designed for beginning harpists with no prior musical experience. The book presents two new methods for reading notation built around recognizing common musical patterns over traditional single note reading. Each group of songs has fun, engaging exercises that will build the student’s coordination and confidence. The material draws from timeless melodies from classical, Renaissance, Celtic, English, old-time and traditional folk repertoire.

Topics covered in this method include:

           How to tune the harp

           Reading music notation and counting rhythm, including two methods for reading ledger lines

           Recognizing basic fingering and bass patterns

           Changing keys with sharping levers

           Using brackets to help see note patterns

           Chord inversions

Additional resources include rhythm practice and workout pages to test your musical knowledge. Helpful reference photos can also be found inside. Includes access to online audio.
