My daughter (10) has just received her first pedal harp.
It might be a good idea to look for a harp teacher in your area.
Hmmm. I don’t remember any specific piece for learning the pedals. most easy pieces do not have a whole lot of pedals in them. There are some exercises for using the pedals in the Yolanda Kondonnassis book “On playing the harp”.
Try Salzedo’s La Desirade – it requires super precise pedaling.
On second thought, that’s probably too advanced. Check it out though and ask your teacher. There are videos on youtube…
Salzedo’s METHOD FOR THE HARP is the perfect book for getting used to the pedals, and has the ever-popular “Chanson dans la Nuit” and “La Désirade” in it.
