I’m sorry if this is a topic that is covered extensively, but I looked through the first five pages and didn’t see anything, and I couldn’t find a search function.
I live in Boston, MA and am thinking of looking for a teacher soon, and renting a harp. I was curious if it’s realistic to start learning on a pedal harp? I’m not a professional musician, but I have a solid musical background on a variety of instruments including guitar and piano, and am interested mostly in playing classical music.
Would it be better to start off with a larger lever harp and trade-up after I get started, or if I can afford to start renting a pedal harp from the get-go, would that be better?
