Music books for beginner harpists
This post will offer a variety of links to books, both music and exercise, for the beginner and intermediate harpist. These materials are separate from the materials which are included in the Video Lessons.
There are so many choices to choose from! I have compiled this list based on years of teaching and what works for my beginner students, both children and adults. It can get a bit overwhelming, but rest assured no book is a bad book, and the more knowledge you arm yourself with, the better educated you will be to play correctly and enjoy yourself behind the harp.
Although this book sometimes teach music theory as if the player were sitting at the piano, it still gives a good introduction to music theory. There are many accompanying websites to help explain certain terminology further.

These websites will further explain music theory to the beginner.
