The approach is practical, covering the requirements of at least Grades 1 & 2 of the Associated Board of Music. The pupil is encouraged to learn music theory in a meaningful way. Concepts are systematically introduced and carefully re-enforced with exercises and games. Whilst considering the different types of harps and their history, the young player is introduced to the exciting world of the harp.

Music of the English Renaissance for the Small HarpMusic of the English Renaissance for the Small Harp Ref: SM034
Jean Hudson

The music that I have selected for arrangement is best understood in the context of the society in which it was written. The pieces date from the late 16th Century to the early 17th Century. This period is generally refered to as the late Renaissance. Scholars regard the beginning of the Renaissance in Europe from the 14th Century when new ideas in the arts flowered and spread, finding their way via the courts into English society. The Court was the main point of contact with Renaissance ideas from abroad. It was the nerve centre of society, government and cultural life.
