How to Learn the Autoharp

  • 1.  How to Learn the Autoharp

    Posted 04-14-2021 10:39 PM
    What is the best book (or way) to teach yourself the autoharp?  I would like to take on the challenge of learning this instrument late in my career!  (No musical skill whatsoever)

    Any recommendations for a brand of autoharp to purchase or self-teaching books?

    I am NO autoharp expert. But, I do have a teacher friend who has been playing for years.
    She suggested looking here for some good information:
    Introduction to Autoharp Playing
    I hope this will help get you started.

    Have a GREAT day!

    Here's the link to a free downloadable book.
    It is colored coded to help get you started.
    Again, just sharing information from my friend.
    Good luck!

    Link to free downloadable PDF 

    Enjoy!
