Thanks for viewing


The harp is a stringed instrument in the form of a large triangle. All strings are in a row and with the fingers of two hands plucked. There are different types of harps. The great harp that is played in an orchestra is too big for children to learn to play. Therefore one usually teaches harp playing on a smaller instrument without pedals.

How is a harp played?
The sound of the harp is made by using the fingers to strike a chord. You play with both hands: the right hand plays the melody on top and the bottom left hand plays the bass. So you can very easily play alone and you yourself are just an orchestra!
