Sylvia Woods

My name is Sylvia Woods, and I would like to welcome you to the Sylvia Woods Harp Center. As my company name implies, I specialize in the harp, and help people of all ages fulfill their dreams of owning and playing one of these beautiful, spiritual, and magical string instruments. You, too, can learn to play the harp!

I have been in business for over 35 years, and have been instrumental in the growth of interest in the harp. Tens of thousands of people (many with no previous musical training) have learned to play the harp using my best-selling book Teach Yourself to Play the Folk Harp, and thousands of people have purchased their exquisite instruments from us. In July 2015 I received the coveted Lifetime Achievement Award from the Somerset Folk Harp Festival for my contributions to the harp world.


I offer a wonderful selection of high-quality Celtic and folk harps by Dusty Strings Harps and the Harpsicle Harp Company. All of these fine harps are crafted here in the U.S.A. I also carry a wide variety of harp books and PDF downloads to fit every taste: classical, Celtic, folk, jazz, pop, Christian, Christmas, Jewish, and more. I am very selective in all the products that I sell: I only sell what I feel is the VERY BEST.

In October 2013, I moved myself and my business to Princeville, on the north shore of the Hawaiian island of Kauai.   If you're going to be on Kauai, please email me or call 808-212-9525 to make an appointment. Many customers come to see the harps, or rent a harp to use while on vacation on Kauai, or take a lesson, or just say "hi."

No matter where you live, I am happy to help you purchase your harp over the phone, or through email. I am here to assist you in any way that I can. I know that buying a harp can be a daunting experience. I'm here to lead you, step by step, through all the options and decisions you'll need to make. Buying a harp from The Sylvia Woods Harp Center is FUN, and will lead to a lifetime of musical enjoyment.

Thank you for letting me help you on your harp journey!
