Description

“Quiet Moments” is a therapeutic harp music book that can be played on any harp, with or without levers. The music is not fancy or flowery because it is therapy music. It is meant to calm and relax the listener, more than merely entertain.

I have played for the ill and grieving for several years, and have wanted to write my own therapy book for some time. After completing the International Harp Therapy Program, I decided the time was right.

Each piece in this book is written in four different keys. This will allow you to have four choices, if you are playing in the listener’s resonant tone. The resonant tone is the specific note that causes the body to react in a positive way toward the music. If you are not using resonant tone, then simply pick the key that seems to be the most conducive to the patient and the environment around you.

Also, I have labeled the mode for each song. Different modes are used for different needs. Ionian is the most common, and is usually cheerful and helps to lift spirits. If you don’t use the modes, and many musicians don’t, then simply pick the piece of music you think is appropriate for the listener. If it is causing a negative effect, then switch to another key.

I have also added chords to the music. You can expand your music by using the chord along with the written music, or you can do improvisation. Be careful not to make the music to full for the listener. Therapy music is simple. Less is more, especially in the Locrian mode. Two of the songs have lyrics. If they aren’t in your key, try singing up or down an octave.
