    I’ll second the works of Barbara Semmann. The harmonies are delicious and melodies are beautiful. Not all pieces are suitable for lever harp, but each book has a few that work really well for that instrument.

    I’m also using MuseScore, as of last week! So happy to have found this – when I switched from PC to Mac years ago, my Sibelius software did not follow, and now Sibelius appears to be a type of membership deal that I’m not attracted to. MuseScore is pretty intuitive, and the printed work looks impressive to boot.

    I really love my American Harp Cart. Though they sometimes seem to lose air easily, I love the pneumatic tires for navigating over just about everything. The harp feels secure in the double straps. So much better than the basic Lyon & Healy model I kept for a little too long. http://www.americanharpcart.com

    YES. Thank you for sharing this. Sometimes we think that we are forgotten or are the last thing everyone around us thinks about. I love that he reached out to let you know otherwise. What a beautiful reminder for us all.

    SO happy to hear this! I’ve been wondering about the Prius V for quite a while — thanks for letting us know!

    I think the hardest part about any trip is just before and right when you get back. It will be so worth it! Can’t wait to hear about all your harp and other vacation adventures!

    Gorgeous. A credo, perfect guiding principles. Is this posted in your home so you and all your guests can see it every day? How powerful to live by this — thank you for sharing so we can all benefit and align with what our own truths are!

    Wish I could “Like” this reply, JAB!

    I so agree with “fitting in” possibly being an indicator of not yet having found his/her voice. And sometimes trying on others’ voices is the quickest way to find what ours is / is not.

    Ultimately the goal is to uncover (vs “discover”, which implies it doesn’t yet exist) what we want to say and how.

    OHHH I would be SO interested to hear how harps fit in the Prius V! I have a 940 Volvo station wagon and am constantly worried it’s going to give out. Elizabeth — I may have missed it, but what type of harp do you have that he said would fit?

    Hi, Edith! I’m part of the Jazz Harp Foundation — so glad you’ve been using the resources!

    Your post reminded me of a message that came out from Deborah Henson-Conant in May of this year. She’s putting together a project that specifically addresses playing the blues on the harp. She says:

    “…read the blurb below and then go to the link, fill out the questionnaire and submit it — that way (you will) get onto the list for potential volunteers.

    I’m writing a series of simple Blues for harp. I need a volunteer research team to help me test the music. I made a form explaining the project & for team applicants. I’d love some folks to test the form itself, whether you play harp or not. To do that, click this link – and let me know if the form is clear, missing anything, etc. (And you can fill it out just for fun if you want) Thanks!

    Have fun with this!

    I’ve played this a few times with organ, choir, flute, timpani… I did have a separate harp part, and it wasn’t too difficult.

    I had a similar concern about my floors, though they aren’t even installed yet.

    The responses here have been fascinating to read as I encounter this issue quite a bit in my teaching studio.

    I also agree that if the lesson is the only place the breakdown is experienced, and she is performing well everywhere else, then perhaps it’s not a problem.
