« is a beginning harp book for young children who do not yet know how to read music »
Musical notions, technique of harp and small pieces are alternated in a educational and progressive way
Extremely progressive and complete for beginning with kids.
Think to learn to play at the same time as to learn the musical language. For that reason, all the 1st book takes place with the 2nd finger
Many known songs
Excellent recommendations for the professor in the "notes" of the introduction to accompany the pupil during the lesson
