“It's great to read a book that explains so much, and in such a friendly way. It's easy to understand, but doesn't 'dumb anything down.' Great for beginners as well as harpists looking for information (and practice ideas) on advanced chords, comping ideas, etc. I wish it had been around years ago!” – Park Stickney, Jazz Harpist, Composer, Arranger, Educator
“Felice Pomeranz has created a marvelous addition to the harp repertoire with her new book, Berklee Harp. It is a sophisticated and thorough improvisational method for both the pedal and lever harp, including the basic theory training that is needed to be a good musician. I can't wait to share it with my students.” – Linda Wood Rollo, Harpist, Educator, Composer; Co-Author (with Susann McDonald) of Harp for Today
“This new, important book by Felice Pomeranz is a comprehensive guide to music theory for the harp.
