Tip of the Week...

Check in weekly for tips and tricks from the pros!

Tip: Don't Just Walk Away...

When you are done practicing, LOWER the levers on a lever harp and RAISE the pedals (to the flat position) on a pedal harp. Keeping the strings open (i.e., disengaged) when the harp is not in use will increase the life and durability of your strings.

-Frank Voltz

Tip: If you want to memorize; start looking at your fingers and strings as you play rather than at the music. You will SEE what you're playing which will help you learn the shapes and patterns of the phrases in relationship to the strings.

-Sharon Thormahlen
