For lever or pedal harp.

This suite of five original, whimsical compositions by Sylvia Woods was inspired by the cute little geckos that live in most of the houses of Hawaii. With their suction-cup toes, these symbols of good luck climb the walls and dance across the ceiling. The pieces are for intermediate harp players, and fingerings are included. The pieces are all in the key of 1 sharp. Sticky Toes also has a pre-set C#. The Gecko Stroll has preset E#s. Sylvia has included an additional arrangement of The Gecko Stroll for harps tuned to 3 flats. There are no lever changes in the middle of any of the pieces. The book or PDF is 32 pages.

The enclosed companion CD or mp3 download includes the entire 12-minute suite.

We're also selling the mp3s on their own for people who don't want to play the music on their harp, but do want to listen to this fun suite!

You can purchase this music in several ways:
  • Book and CD, which we will mail to you,
  • PDF and mp3 files, to be downloaded to your computer, or
  • mp3 files only, which include only the sound files, without the printed music.

Great repertiore music!

I'm so glad that I decided to buy this book/CD. I hadn't expected music written in honor of geckos to be so beautiful! The CD is nice listening all on it's own, and the pieces are fun to learn. I'm not quite intermediate level, but with good practice the music is attainable for me. I hope to learn the entire suite and keep it in my repertiore. This would be ideal to perform for children, maybe with a little fun talk about geckos.

After seeing Sylvia's video on youtube about this book I decided to buy it, and it now has some of my favorite performance pieces in it! I highly advise buying this book to add some quirky and some beautiful songs to your repertoire.

This book and CD is such a great value!! The CD is just great for listening all on its own AND you get the book of all this great music!! I absolutely love playing these songs. They are very fun and they add a new element of the modes to my music. My "Gecko Stroll" is still somewhat of a "crawl," since I am still a beginner, but it is still great fun to play. Thank you Sylvia, I love this music!

Sylvia, when I play your Gecko music I feel so peaceful and content. Dancing in Waterfalls is my favourite - I have been struggling emotionally lately and this whole book is a hug of nature, its beautiful! Thank you x

I've loved this piece ever since I first heard it but didn't think I could play it in E flat tuning. So happy to see that there is an E flat version of the Gecko Stroll. Love the jazzy sounding melody!
