For lever or pedal harp.

Stairway to Heaven written by Jimmy Page and Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin, is one of the most requested songs on the harp! Sylvia Woods has created 2 amazing arrangements of this rock classic which are playable on either lever or pedal harp. She has kept the signature bass line, and all of the varied sections of this piece, but with a minimum of lever changes! In fact, the easy version has NO lever changes, and the intermediate version has only three!

This sheet music includes both the easy and the intermediate arrangements. Fingerings and chord symbols are included in both versions.

The easy 3-page arrangement requires no lever changes, but you'll need to sharp some of the F and G strings before you begin playing. If your harp doesn't have these levers, you can tune the 3 required strings to sharps. If you play a small harp with at least 24 strings and 1 octave below middle C, play the entire piece an octave higher than written, and it will fit on your harp.

The 5-page intermediate version requires a harp with 2 octaves below middle C, and sharping levers on the F and G strings. Pedal changes and the 3 sharping lever changes are notated in the music. Sylvia has included instructions and exercises for learning to play the muffling techniques used in this arrangement.

With Sylvia's arrangements (and a little practice), the next time someone asks "Can you play Stairway to Heaven," you can say "YES!!!"

Stairway to Heaven-Great Arrangements!

Sylvia's two arrangements of "Stairway to Heaven" are the best and most playable I have played since the song rocketed to what Wikipedia calls "one of the greatest rock songs of all-time." You will have so much fun whipping them out of your music bag to grant those requests! Eyebrows will be raised, people will laugh, and you will be the hit of the party! I could not wait to get my hands on them so I downloaded the PDF files. My repertoire is now complete! :-)

The arrangement of Stairway to Heaven is absolutely wonderful. Muffling strategic notes in the bass really puts a stamp of authenticity to this piece. That the package includes easy and intermediate versions for lever harp, offers alternative bass lines for pedal harpists, and includes instructional material on how to execute muffles makes it a great value for the price. Well done, Sylvia!


Just Heavenly!

"Stairway to Heaven" arrived today and I am having so much fun with it! I love your arrangement. It's very interesting and has all the melody pieces the original has, with just a very few lever changes. I love that you include fingering notations, also. Thanks much, Priscilla


My harp dream comes true!

'Stairway to Heaven' is one of my favourite songs - and I was so delighted to find these two arrangements. I've been learning harp for three months (although a pianist of many years) and the easy version is fine for me. It is beautifully arranged to be accessible for a beginner AND lovely to listen to - I look forward to being able to try the intermediate option in time. Thank you, Sylvia - you have made my harp dream a reality!
