Easy Scottish Harp Music

Books | Harp

Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
Easy Scottish Harp Music is a book of ten simple arrangements of traditional Scottish songs new to the harp repertoire. The selections require a 34-string harp. With no lever changes, they are well-suited to beginning or intermediate harpers. Pedal harpists will also enjoy the simplicity and readability of these tunes. Most are 1-2 pages in length. The texts of the songs are provided for historical context. The arrangements are intended for the beginning or intermediate harper to learn new music, coordinate the right-hand melody with a simple left-hand accompaniment, and develop the skills of dynamics and expression. The songs are appropriate for performances at Renaissance Faires, recitals, music therapy sessions, and as relaxing entertainment. For more advanced players, the printed arrangements can be used as an outline and embellished according to the harpist’s creative abilities.

    Swansea GB Older novice
    Unlike some other music for beginners these tunes actually seem playable for the novice and extend the repertoire avaalable. The individual pieces are melodic and feel very Scottish in rhythm and harmony which is good. It is good to have easy music which is suitable for the older learner. I am enjoying learning them.
    Some indication of fingering would have improved the experience as the music is intended for beginners. Although it may be good for learners to try and work out the fingering for themselves. But I would have been helped by fingering being included.

    Mansfield GB Celtic harper, 1 year
    Around grade 1-2, as advertised - 10 nice arrangements, clear print, lyrics included on separate pages.
    No lever -work needed mid-piece.
    2 awkward page turns need next page copying!
    Sadly for me, although thislooked good for a Celtic harp with range C1 -C5, this music goes down a further 10th - need a full size concert or lever harp to play most of the pieces.
