Description

The Treble Harpist book by Ray Pool is an introduction to music on the harp using the treble clef only. Intended for the adult beginner who has come to the study of music for the first time, or those with previous musical experience on another instrument and can read the notes of the treble clef. Suitable for harps of any size, especially smaller lever harps (“lap harps”). Stresses proper hand position and effective practice technique which strengthens pitch and rhythm identification. Each of the five sections offers graduated examples of note reading, rhythm exercises, technique, and repertoire. There are fifty arrangements taken from American folk songs, American vintage tunes, Christian hymns and holiday songs, Jewish hymns and holiday songs, and compositions by Stephen Foster. The range of notes begins with only those on the lines and spaces of the treble clef and expands to the F below middle C (3 ledger lines below the staff) to the “soprano high C” two ledger lines above the staff. The key signatures of the arrangements include C Major / A minor (no sharps or flats) and G Major / E minor (F# only). No lever or pedal changes. All arrangements are fully edited with careful attention given to fingering patterns.

PDF DOWNLOADS

Depending on your computer settings, when you click on your download link, 1 –  it may open automatically, 2 – it may go into your “downloads” folder, or 3 – your computer may prompt you to “save as”.  If you can’t find your PDF, look in your “downloads” folder first.  The title of the PDF may not match the title of the book, so you may want to change the title to what you will remember. After you have located your download, please either remember that it is in your “downloads” folder, or better yet, move it to another folder on your computer with a name that you will remember.

Your respect of the copyright laws will help support the musicians and arrangers who created this music, and will encourage more harp music to be produced in the future. Please do not make multiple copies to pass on to others. You can help keep downloadable harp music viable and available by encouraging your students, friends, and relatives to purchase their own copies. Thank you for your assistance in this endeavor.

mp3 DOWNLOADS

On our website, folkharp.com, we offer a wide selection of paper and download music. We were always in a quandary about publications having several parts, or that include sound files. After realizing that we can place multiple files into one folder and “zip” it up, we are now able to offer book + cd options.

What we do: sound files and the PDF book are placed into a folder and zipped. The zipped folder is inserted into the product on the back end of the web site.

What you receive: after you purchase, you receive a zipped folder. This is a folder that literally has a picture of a zipper on it, indicating there is more than one document in the folder.

What you do with it: Generally by double clicking on the folder, it automatically opens up. The challenge lies in whether or not you have a program that unzips these folders. If you do, it is as simple as double clicking and the contents are revealed. Alternately, you can right click on the folder, which brings up choices, one of which is “open with” – you then click on your unzip program.

If you don’t have a program to unzip your files you’ll have a challenge! Recently I bought a small laptop for my zoom lessons. This laptop did not come with winzip, or any other kind of program that unzips these folders. The computer kept wanting me to purchase winzip for $29.  I found another program that does a great job, and it is free. 7-zip unzips all my compressed (zipped) folders! It is open source and you can find out more here:https://www.7-zip.org/

We hope all this information is helpful to you.
