The HarpsicleŽ Harp method book is an excellent tool for learning to play the HarpsicleŽ Harp or any size harp from the very beginning. No musical knowledge is necessary to use this method. All the music is written in the keys of C Major and A minor, so no sharping levers or pedals are needed. The guitar chords are displayed above the staff, so the students can add to the written music, or other instruments can accompany the harp. The music is graduated from two fingers to playing with both hands. The music is labeled to allow the students to gradually learn the notes and fingering without stress or frustration. The method contains lessons on the parts of the harp, tuning, stringing, and taking care of your instrument. Also included in the method are reading music, time signatures and counting, placing and bracketing, finger drills, and much more. There are also eighteen songs, starting from very easy and continuing to add to the music, as the student progresses. All songs have labeled notes, to help the students learn notes and fingering. A DVD compliments the book, and follows up the written instructions, with video footage, so the student can visually see the method.

Darlene Walton has been actively performing music since her first solo at the age of three. Since then, music has been a big part of her life. She studied piano for twelve years, violin and organ for six years, and some guitar thrown in to spice things up. At the age of sixteen she started her church musician career, and has played either piano or organ almost every week since. Darlene has been a piano teacher and choir director for many years, and in 2001 she added harp teacher to her resume. As part of a gospel group called Shine, Darlene helped produce and write an album with all original music and lyrics, which the group performed at many venues. More recently Darlene has made two solo harp CDs. The Harp and the Rising Sun contains popular tunes and some Celtic music. Her second CD, Quiet Praise, features solo harp versions of gospel favorites. Darlene was also featured in a Sentimental Reflections DVD. At present, Darlene works as the Showroom Manager for Rees Harps Incorporated. She stays busy composing music and rehearsing with her eighteen piece HarpsicleTM Harp choir. She has performed two times at the state of Indiana Inaugurations for Governor Mitch Daniels, plays at the Neo-Natal Intensive Care unit and in the Dialysis unit at a large Cincinnati hospital. She also plays for weddings, dinners, funerals, art shows, festivals, and many other venues. Darlene loves teaching both private and group harp lessons and piano lessons. Taking the stress out of learning to play an instrument is Darlene s greatest gift to her students. For Darlene Walton the harp has been a major blessing in her life. She says it's a lot more fun than piano and she wishes she had started playing it back in fifth grade when she first fell in love with the harp s beautiful mellow tones.
