    I don’t know what’s in the Schlomovitz Method, but I don’t think she was ever considered Salzedo trained, at least not by Miss Lawrence, who was the source. Her video is very important as a document of her playing and teaching, with excellent demonstrations by Elizabeth Morse. It is not a very professional production, unfortunately, but when Miss Lawrence got moving on a project, it had to get done regardless of minor details like sound. Her

    Sorry, it’s not there yet. I don’t have a dvd drive to upload it from. Several people have copies, and you can catch sometimes on public tv on the Classic Arts Showcase, which is where it was captured from. It’s not public domain, exactly, or might be, but it’s not on the market either. That said, your teacher is your most important source. And reading the Method carefully, just don’t take arms parallel to the floor too literally, it just means elbows up enough for the arm to support the hands and transfer force from your back. Who are you studying with?

    William, I am familiar with the Schlomovitz Beginning Harp Book Nos 1 and 2, each with videos, produced by Salvi Harps, and featuring Renee Schlomovitz Quinn demonstrating the pieces in the books.

    Hi Saul! Thanks again for your input! I will actually contact our local pbs channel here in Charlotte to find out times that they might be broadcasting this… Also our University channels puts on quite a bit of “arts” video footage – might be worth while for me to contact them as well… Thanks for the tip!

    Carian, not familiar with those two CDs/books, but I’ve heard great things about the Sylvia Woods’ DVD, “Teach Yourself to Play the Folk Harp”…I have the music book to that, and it’s terrific!…you might want to check out ebay for the DVD, or Amazon.com…or Sylvia Woods’ Harp Center, harpcenter.com, has them for, I think $64.00?..

    Carian, if you go to the virtualharpcircle group on Yahoo, I think you’ll find posts by members who use Pamela Bruner and Cindy Kleinstuber methods.
