Mahogany Moon was inspired by a rare lunar eclipse, which turned the moon a mystical dusty red. The piece sounds atmospheric and creates an other-worldly moment for the listeners, while sticking to very basic harp skills

    I enjoyed this course very much. I bought my first harp, January, 2022. I had never touched one before, and I am 75 years young. I love the way you teach! It is just the right pace for a beginner. You repeat the important techniques that are so needed. I have arthritis, and my hands are quite disfigured, but the harp has actually reduced the pain in my fingers. I am recorded my trying to play this song tonight. I will go post it at the course group. I lost my way toward the end, and so it has a unique ending. lol

    great beginner song! Haunting and the repeated patterns made learning the timing of placing hands much easier with immediate progress.

    Lovely haunting melody that keeps a beginner from sounding so much like a beginner!

    Learn continuous hand transitions

    This eerie and beautiful piece let’s you practice hand to hand to hand transitions while playing something that is deceptively simple seeming. You will feel like you are playing something incredibly complex, and the flow and sound of it will have you wanting to play it again and again.

    On Mahogany Moon, can you please add a bit to the front of the full speed playthrough video? It starts playing the first note as soon as you hit the video play button! There’s no time to hit play and then place your fingers.
