The Wheel of the Year depicts the annual cycle of seasonal festivals including the solstices and equinoxes. These eight harp solos take us through the seasons, creating character and imagery through music. Intended for early intermediate harp players, I compose with teachable moments in mind. The left hand uses comfortable patterns and natural coordination. I have included right hand fingerings to help you place in groups and focus upon special techniques like thumb drags, finger crossing, harmonics, muffling and grace notes.
