Resources for Harp Students
Lyon and Healy is one of many harp makers; they sell both pedal and lever harps and offer a rent-to-own program.
There is a certified pre-owned harps program for harpists interested in buying a used instrument.
Check out Harp Column's Classifieds for other used instruments.
Local secondhand instruments may be available for purchase; contact me for more information.
Bench and Music Stand
You will need a sturdy, height-adjustable bench that is comfortable to sit on; click here for some great options from Vanderbilt Music.
Similarly, your music stand should also be height-adjustable.
Tuning Key and Tuner
All harpists will need a tuning key - I recommend the rubber, ergonomic options (Bonus! They come in seven fantastic colors - click here to see all options).
Tuner apps are available for download on your phone, or can be found in any general music store.
Available on Amazon or in any store that sells general music equipment.
