If you buy both the book and CD, you will automatically receive a $2 discount in your shopping cart.

Companion CD

The companion CD will assist harp players learning the pieces in this book. Since many of you will want to "play along" as you are learning, Sylvia has recorded most of the pieces slower than they are usually played, and as "straight" as possible, with little or no expression or rhythmic variations.
In the book each piece has two arrangements: (A) an easy version, and (B) one that is more difficult. On these recordings Sylvia plays the "B" versions. Since the two versions can be played as a duet, you can play either version along with the recording. The pieces are in the same order as in the book. .

If you buy both the book and CD, you will automatically receive a $2 discount in your shopping cart.
