Solos for lever harp or pedal harp: Odd-Ludes

http://www.hornandharp.com/oddlude.html

These pieces allow students to work on new skills within the context of a solo piece. Instead of using etudes, which are set aside, they retain the skills while adding to their repertoire.

The single roses on the mantle are more of a statement than a huge bouquet. It's a lovely setting for the harp.

Nice color contrast with the harp.

“Music learning is so much more than reproducing what's on the page. If you have an opportunity to develop technically and musically in an orderly way, right from the start, you'll just fly.” —Lynne Aspnes

Great advice. Don't just pull the strings. Listen. Make music, not noise, right from the beginning. You don't need advanced, highly complex music to make beautiful music.

Now go tune your harp and practice.

We've reworked our website and some of the URLs have changed. The free resources for harp teachers and harp students is now located at http://hornandharp.com/resources.html.

There you'll find the Andrés Notation Project, tutorials for beginners and gigging harpists with a some free sheet music sprinkled throughout.

Many of us (harpists) have played a transcription of Debussy's Clair de Lune. It can be helpful to understand a piece, in order to interpret it in light of the composer's ideas. Here's an interesting article about the piece https://theconversation.com/decoding-the-music-masterpieces….

The piece ends with this lovely quote:

"We should be constantly reminding ourselves that the beauty of a work of art is something that will always remain mysterious; that is to say one can never find out exactly “how it is done”. At all costs let us preserve this element of magic peculiar to music. By its very nature music is more likely to contain something of the magical than any other art."
