Learning Music

One of my new years resolutions this year is to learn to play music. I have never played before except a few tunes like chopsticks on the piano. I don't know how to read music but I am sure I will learn.

After reading about the wonderful influences the pentatonic harp has on small children, and how relatively easy they are to play, I decided that my instrument of choice would be this lovely little spring lyre. It is a truly beautiful thing and the sounds it makes, even when played by an amateur like myself are divine. It attracts my children like moths to a flame. The only problem I am having now is that as soon as I try to play it, little fingers want to play too... not that that is a bad thing.


  1. Oh wow, a harp!
    This has been a long held fantasy of mine and you've introduced me to a new type.

    I look forward to reading about how you progress with your lessons, my question is who will teach you?


  2. Oh my goodness, how superb! I adore the harp, what a beautiful instrument for you to learn..

  3. Ohh, where did you get it? And where can I get one?

  4. Well good Luck with your lessons, it's a shame we can't have a recital when you've mastered a few tunes.

  5. Such a gorgeous looking instrument and I can only imagine the beautiful melodies it must play. Where did you get it? I adore music and play the piano, but that lyre looks like a 'family heirloom' type instrument!


Thank you for stopping by, I always love reading your comments.
