Grade 5 lever harp - scale & arpeggio practice chart

Just done this teaching resource for a student - now there is no excuse not to practice ALL those scales, arpeggios and dominant sevenths as required for the ABRSM Grade 5 exam.

Feel free to share with any harp students who could do with this free handy practice chart.

Double click on each image to open the image fully and then print off.

Tick the box as you complete each one you need to do at least 10 each day if you want to get through the cycle in a 2 week period. Select across different keys and types of scales/arpeggios rather than working down the list in numerical order.

Happy days!

Hermanos Corbalan

Fabulous playing from the Hermanos Corbalan harp duo, and also solo harp of Sixto Corbalan.

It's got everything: passionate playing, great music and also both are brilliantly filmed videos.

They also have free PDFs of sheet music of a few of their solo harp pieces on their website, so no excuse to not have a go at playing their music.

They are coming over to the UK soon, it will be great to see them play live.

harp notation guide

Isabelle Perrin and Barbara Fackler have created a guide to harp notation as used by composer Bernard Andrés with the intention that this collection be shared freely among harpists at no cost.
