Playing the Folk Harp Thursday, June 27, 2013

So you bought a folk harp, and now you want a book to help you learn to play it!  How big is it?  How many strings does it have?   What’s with the blue and red strings?  Just how do you use those levers?   “Teach Yourself to Play the Folk Harp” by Sylvia Woods is one of the best books to help you learn all that stuff.

Sylvia has written a short history of the harp, how to hold it, proper hand position, reading music and  how to replace and tie harp strings.  There are plenty of songs to play as you learn new techniques.  Who knows?  Maybe by Christmas you will be confident enough to play “The Christ Child’s Lullaby” in church! 

Stanton’s has plenty of books to learn to play the folk harp, and plenty of books of solos for the harpist.  For more information about this book or other books of sheet music for folk harp, call 1-800-42-MUSIC, email us at, or visit our website at  Shop Stanton’s for all your sheet music needs!
