Hi again Mei, If there is something you can’t find for love or money, let me know and if I have it in my collection, I will be happy to lend it to you. If I’m not using it, I would rather someone else be using it. Cindy

Hi Mei, I had the same reaction when I started playing the harp. So yup, ya gotta hunt them down one by one, expensive tome by expensive tome. I hope you had some success in sourcing material. I ended up buying a number of required scores through abebooks.com. A site which sells used books/sheet music. But it was a real pain in the butt….
As a neophyte harpist, I just did my Grade 2, I drive my husband nuts working out new scales, triads, arppegios and then cherry on the cake, keep practicing the pieces for the exam. How do I mix it up so that he does not run away or try to lock me and harp in the closet for my practice sessions? (joking but almost not a couple of times)
thanks in advance,

I live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. We enjoy extremes of weather, damp cold of -22F in winter and today it is +86F and dry. I try to keep the house between 65-75F depending on outside temperature.
I will consult with AHS members: I just joined the group. Thanks so much for the advice, much appreciated.
I just joined HarpColumn and I am a relatively new harpist. On the instrument for 6 months and I have a demanding job. I try to get at least 30 minutes in the morning. I tune (getting faster at it) and focus on technical work in the am. One lesson a week and I try to work the pieces in at least three times a week. Sunday afternoon turns into an extended practice session usually with a glass of wine on the side. Doing this regularly seems to keep me on track.
I am a neophyte harpist and only move my harp for exams and small student recitals, and I have to wholeheartedly agree. I have a LH Troubadour VI and I typically now refuse any help. I have seen my beautiful harp wobble a bit too much in the hands of others. If she is going to take a dive…..I want to be the one close by who will throw herself under her to keep her from damage.
thanks for the comment
