    As a music teacher at a private school, I would like to purchase a

    small harp (the budget may be around $300.00 to $400.00) thru the

    school, to be used in the music program. What would you do in my case

    as far as the brand, type etc., for kids in the 6th to 8th grade?

    The Harpsicle is probably your best choice for under $400. Unfortunately Harpsicles don’t have bridge pins, so I don’t think levers can be added. I’ve used Harpsicles at schools before, and it has worked well for beginners. I did arrange a lot of music for lap harp without levers for this harp. If you could spend a little more the Dusty Strings Ravenna is a good choice, and Blevins Harps have discounted specials.

    I believe the levered version of the Harpsicle is called the Sharpsicle. If you look for Harp

    Mall online, you will find a plethora of harps available. You may even find an excellent harp

    second-hand.

    Thanks very much for your responses. I am taking all of this into serious consideration.
