What Child Is This: This lovely Christmas tune works so well on the harp, and can be played in front of the Christmas tree or at church events. It is set to the old tune of Greensleeves.

Greensleeves is a traditional English melody that people associate with the Renaissance. It creates a haunting atmosphere…some pieces just sound really old, and this is one of them! This arrangement is the simplest possible version with a left hand part, so you can play it even if you’ve recently started playing the harp.

    I have been learning for almost 3 months now, and I think this song was perfect for a beginner. The left hand just plucks one at a time slowly and often in order going down. This adds to the song but allows you to focus on the right hand melody. I just finished the course today, so I will make a video playing it when a get a bit better on it. Thank you Christy-Lyn for your excellent instructions.

    Hi I enjoyed this piece and practiced a lot. Thank you for keeping it simple! I am still concerned that when I really try to focus on my finger positions I forget the notes. Practice practice practice! 
    Also every time I go to the Classmates group I keep getting redirected to the home page. maybe they have all moved on.
