    Difficulty Level:
  • May 26, 2009 BUY THIS BOOK !

    Sylvia Woods wrote this book over three decades ago when fewer people played the folk harp, but it's just as relevant as ever now. I have been using this book to teach myself and others, and I love it. The title of the book reflects a time when there...

    were fewer harp teachers available, but you could also use this book with the help of a teacher. The learning curve is fairly steep, in that you progress to somewhat harder pieces quickly, so if you are new to music AND harp playing, you can use this book in conjuction with an easier book that Sheet Music Plus offers. But the book is so comprehensive compared to other manuals to teach folk harp, that I think you should not replace this book with an easier one.
