    I managed to find a lady who teaches harp.

    I’m so glad you’ve found a teacher!

    Hi Fiona. I’ve just had my first harp lesson too last week. I’m quite lucky because as a busy performer my teacher can arrange to give me weekly lessons. Based on my piano lesson experience I can feel that she’ll guide me through the right track. Hopefully you will also have many wonderful times with your teacher!

    I took an instant liking to her.

    >Now I’m about to relearn the piece using the correct hand position

    Don’t be discouraged if you find this very hard to do right now, Fiona. It’s usually easier to put those pieces aside and come to them a bit later when what you’ve been doing isn’t so hardwired anymore.

    It’s a bit like learning to drive.

    Oh, we all know where it is going. H.A.S. or better know as Harp Acquisition Syndrome. Incurable and progressive condition.

    Sounds like you are taking to your lessons well and have the right attitude about relearning things correctly. The time and patience you put into it now will really pay off for you later on.

    Learning the harp is a lifelong journey of interest and enjoyment, but there is no moment more exciting then when you first start. It is almost a magic time. Enjoy.

    Not only is H.A.S. incurable and progressive, it’s also highly contagious.

    As is the closely related “SAD”: String Acquisition Disorder.

    I know I’ve caught the harp bug.

    Umm, my teacher and I are both bad that way! When I volunteer at the gallery I bring my harp with me to practice. She started joining me on the days that I work. She joined the board of the organization and has just begun volunteering herself and has asked if I would like to join her on “her” days – with harps, of course!
