About Sylvia Woods

My name is Sylvia Woods, and I would like to welcome you to the Sylvia Woods Harp Center.

Aloha. My name is Sylvia Woods. I specialize in the harp and help people of all ages fulfill their dreams of owning and playing one of these beautiful instruments. You, too, can learn to play the harp!

I have been in business for over 40 years and have been instrumental in the growth of interest in the harp. A 1999 issue of the Harp Column magazine named me one of the "Most Influential Harp Forces of the 20th Century." And, in 2015 I received the coveted Lifetime Achievement Award from the Somerset Folk Harp Festival for my contributions to the harp world.

I am well-known for my harp music publications. My best-selling Teach Yourself to Play the Folk Harp book has helped tens of thousands of people learn to play. The 85 books and pieces of sheet music that I have arranged are available on this site in two formats: printed music and convenient PDF downloads. I also carry a wide variety of harp music by other composers and arrangers to fit every taste: classical, Celtic, folk, jazz, pop, Christian, Christmas, Jewish, and more.

I offer a wonderful selection of high-quality American-made harps by Dusty Strings Harps and the Harpsicle Harp Company. Buying a harp from The Sylvia Woods Harp Center is FUN and will lead to a lifetime of musical enjoyment. Email me, and I'll personally lead you, step by step, through all the options and decisions you need to make.

In 2013, I moved myself and my business to the Hawaiian island of Kauai. If you're going to be visiting our beautiful island, make an appointment to rent a harp, take a lesson, meet for lunch, or just say "hi." I love getting to know my wonderful customers.

You can learn more about me on the About Sylvia page.

Thank you for allowing me to help you throughout your harp journey!
