learning the Harp

Bio: The harp is one of the oldest instruments known to humankind, dating back to at least 3000 B.C.  There are three types of harp; the Pedal, Lever and Folk Harp. 

The sound is produced by plucking strings with four fingers on both hands.  Keep in mind, that for a small child a small harp is usually best. Even if you have visions of them playing a great big golden-pillared pedal harp some day, a small harp will fit them much better when they are young. A larp harp of between 19-25 strings should be plenty. It will also be less intimidating, cheaper, more portable, and easier to store than a bigger (grown-up sized) harp.
