    Hello to all –

    My teacher has been giving me a series of evil but effective little exercies to improve my technique.

    Hi Rebecca,

    I have an old copy of this work: “Practical Method for Grand Harp and Irish Harp” by Josef Molnar, Volume 1. So, assume there is a volume 2 as well.

    I haven’t seen this

    Well, I looked at the usual spots for music with no luck.

    I will check out this site.

    Yes, volumes 1 and 2 of Molnar’s exercise books, that I also use, are very good, and used to be carried by Lyon and Healy. Sometimes, imported music is too expensive to carry so they remove it from their lists.When Molnar left Austria to begin his career in Japan, he was already a fine professional harpist. He distilled the European technique for his students, into the most useful excercises for brilliant technique, and the result of his years of teaching is that Japan has produced many prizewinning harp virtuosos. Perhaps Holywell Music in England has these volumes, which must not be photocopied, of course, since Molnar is still alive.

    Thank you – I will try Holywell.
