A Sense of Wonder, harp
I love all of your music and all the learning tid-bits you put in to them. I love this piece even more and I really like the way it fits in my hands to play it. I got an extra boost of confidence from this one and I love the way it sounds. It's a joy to play and it is such a happy tune to boot! I really recommend this one in particular! I know you put a lot of thought into all of music and I definitely appreciate that! You make learning soooooo rewarding. I use the word love a lot when I refer to your music because it is the way I feel about it and this one is a 'for sure.' If someone reading this is a more advanced player, I would still recommend this one - just for the joy of listening to the song and the ease of which it plays. Thanks Anne!
Thank-you so much Sheila!
After several years as an older (now 82) adult learner, your videos have me believing I might have moved beyond the "perennial beginner" stage I had labeled myself. Thank you for the lovely piece and the encouragement.
Anne, this is a “staple” in my therapeutic & worship repertoire! Those 1-3-5-7 patterns really bring out the lush tonal quality of the harp. Patients and parishioners alike always speak very positive comments about this song.
That's one of those magic patterns that sounds harder than it is! - Anne
What a joy to play this nice song. Even getting the hang of harmonics better with your helpful instructions...anxious to add to repertoire on small and larger harp...so many uses!
Thank-you, Kathleen. Isn't it nice to have pieces that are flexible enough to enjoy on large or small harps? So glad to hear those harmonics are coming along, good for you! - Anne
this makes a wonderful piece of music for my small double strung harp that I play in the hospital. The echoing tones when playing the arpeggios in the same octave one after the other are wonderful. There is so much I can do with this - the main part of the piece is fairly straightforward and once you practice the couple of challenges Anne teaches, fits the hand beautifully. I can extend the music by playing those F, G and C arpeggios in various inversions, which makes it wonderful for improvisation. I 'take' so much of your music to the hospital with me - the music fits my hand and is always so beautiful.
Thank-you, Nancy! I love that you have adapted it so beautifully for your small double strung harp. Enjoy! - Anne
