By Christy-Lyn Marais. 1 pages. PDF download.
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 in bracketing while playing hands together. This piece should only be learned once you have a firm grasp of basic bracketing (placing before playing), and have started playing simple pieces with hands together.
"New Sundress" is a sweet and innocent-sounding piece. It makes me think of the joy of a little girl twirling in her pretty new sundress!
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 [FREE sheet music here], 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, and have done some work with playing two hands together.
