New way to harping … Creative & Flexible Daily Technique For Diatonic, Lever and Pedal Harp,  is a book born to develop a flexibility in composing technical exercises with creativity from the first preparatory moments up to the technical development concert, which could accompany the student without a particular link with the traditional notation, which creates enormous difficulties at the beginning of the studies, but using graphs and tables that individually develop a single technique but also have the possibility to combine them with the help of the teacher and then independently to create personalized exercises adapted to different contexts, which can help to develop a fast memorisation also of the musical theory through the technique on the instrument (eg notation, dynamics, rhythm).
In the final pages of each technical topic and at the end of the book will be examples of exercises or dynamic and creative lessons for preparatory activities that teachers can offer during lessons, and advice for professional harpists who want to use flexible patterns to diversify their activities heating before the study or a concert (classical, jazz, contemporary etc …).
