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.
