  • May 13, 2007 Fantastic Starter Book

    I had never laid a finger on a lever harp, and this book came with mine when I ordered it. This book made it incredibly simple. To be fair, I all ready knew how to read music, but this is an excellent begginner book... because I knew how to read...

    music allready, I was playing in public within 3 weeks! I freely encourage people who say they are interested in lever harp to try it, and get this book to start with!
