    Hi, Michelle. Your post made me think back to my first couple of weeks with the harp. There was so much to learn, it seemed overwhelming. Luckily, it all starts to make more sense as you go along.

    For books, Christy-Lyn has recommended Play the Harp Beautifully, Level 1, by Pamela Bruner. It is an excellent step-by-step method for beginners. I have several method books, but this one is my favorite.

    As far as reading sheet music goes, I’ve added a separate post with some exercises that I found helpful. Here’s a link: Free tools to learn to read sheet music . I’ve been meaning to post that info for a couple of days now, and your question was a good reason to pull it all together.
