“It’s great to read a book that explains so much,
and in such a friendly way.  It’s easy to under-
stand but doesn’t ‘dumb anything down.’  Great
for beginners as well as harpists looking for
information (and practice ideas) on advanced
chords, comping ideas, etc.  I wish it had been
around years ago!”

Park Stickney - Jazz Harpist, Composer, Arranger, Educator
