A Collection of Folktunes Progressively Arranged with an Introduction to Harp Technic, and Illustrations

  • Harp


What fun to sit down to a harp for the first time be able to master at least one tune on it, especially one you already know and love. This book has been compiled to give the beginner musical material of permanent value in simple form. Although this book is not intended to be a method for the harp, it assumes a working knowledge of the essentials of music. Some information about the instrument, as well as the correct position of the body, arms, hands, and fingers in performance is necessary to insure against errors in posture and technique that would handicap the player in progressing to more advanced work later on.
