    Bernhard, I agree… it seems that every room and every container has one or more such things, which I like to call “resonant frequency” (a term I picked up from physics).

    Hi Susie,

    The reference is probably to wolf tones… I was well aware of this phenomenon back when I played the violin, but I haven’t heard much of it in the harp world.

    I agree very much with what Julieanne Rabens and Kay Lister have written.

    Rosemary, I never thought of you as even a partial ogre, much less a complete one… we all have our quirks, and I’m with you on being big on art and music.

    And thank you, Rosemary, for your words of encouragement and for sharing your thoughts and perspective.

    As I’ve been thinking about this, I see the struggle here as perhaps between the older generation of teachers who are asking (and expecting) the students to trust their experience and expertise, and the younger generation of students who more readily question things and don’t want their power of choice limited.

    Hi Rosemary,

    I agree; it is, indeed, a fascinating topic.

    I’m not so sure that entitlement is the issue at hand here.

    Han, I agree… aesthetics are very subjective, and what one person (or one culture, for that matter) loves might well be disgusting to another; and yet, because it’s so subjective, it’s good for us to respect the views and preferences that others hold in this regard.

    The best performers out there have been the ones who have taken what they’ve learned (from whereever) and made it their own.

    Glenna and Elizabeth, I think you are both right on.

    David,

    You’re right… that was a horrible thing that happened.

    Here’s the Lyon & Healy Prelude I used to have:

    And here’s the Camac Athena that I now have, with my son behind it:

    Everyone says he looks just like me, so consider that a picture of me. 🙂

    Leigh, I did this by composing as HTML, with image tags referencing the harp pictures that I have on my site.
