BEGINNER HARP PIECE in C major
By Christy-Lyn Marais. PDF download. 2 pages.
For Lever harp (including lap harps) or Pedal Harp. Fingering is indicated.
This arrangement is for a beginner level harpist, intended as a performance piece and also an exercise for working with hands together.
"Foggy Mountain View" is a mysterious sounding piece, written in the pentatonic mode. It reminds me of swirling mists around a mountain, the setting for a fairytale.
This piece is easy to play, but sounds good as a performance piece; it has a good pay-off for the practice you put in! If you enjoyed Sailing on a Lake, Breath of Air and Feeling Nostalgic, then this is the piece to attempt next! It will impress your friends and show them how relaxing and beautiful harp music can be! It can also be used in a church setting, hospital setting or at a nursing home.
For harp teachers, this piece works well for players who have already worked on bracketing and placing before playing, but have not done much work with playing two hands together.
