Sightreading for Harp: Book 2 - A. Dunwoodie, L. Williamson
A Resource Book for Students, Book 2
Standard: Grade 3 - 5 Harp Type: Lever or Pedal Harp
Book Two is approximately grades 3-5 progressively getting harder. The examples in this book have been written so lever harps have to set a lever (in about half of the examples) at the beginning and pedal harpist will have to change a pedal somewhere through it. We've achieved this by writing the accidental only in one octave and using it as a natural in the rest. By the end of the book they should be confidently playing in 2/4, 3/4, 4/4, 3/8 and 6/8, from 3 flats to 4 sharps, 3 note chords, all rhythms including all dotted notes and runs of 4 semiquavers and a wide range of dynamics, articulation and tempo marking. The first half of the exercises are only 8 bars long progressing to 16 bars for the last 25 or 30 examples! So there are 180 exercises in total!
